Why a Virtual PA makes you a better business coach
- Free up time to focus on your clients
- Delegate urgent tasks
- Only pay for the hours you need
As a business coach, you have a deep understanding of the importance of identifying your core values, achieving mini milestones and setting long-term goals.
You guide your clients through the processes of nurturing and growing their own businesses, helping them to clarify their personal vision for the future. Perhaps more than most industries, a business coaches’ clients judge them on the way they run their own business.
And as such, your clients will judge you on your successes and failures as a business owner. AVirtual understands that, because of this, it’s crucial you are organised, manage your time efficiently, and maintain a professional level of all communications.
While this may seem daunting, there is help. A virtual PA gives you the freedom to concentrate on the ever-evolving needs of your clients, secure in the knowledge that your own business’s pesky to-do list, calendar and bookkeeping is in good hands and safely taken care of.
How a virtual PA makes your life easier
As with any position, business coaching requires ongoing efforts behind-the-scenes. The pressure and pace of running your own business stay hidden from your clientele if you are to support them in their own business endeavours. Presenting an organised front is key.
In the same way that a personal trainer should be fit and in shape, a business coach embodies their expertise. You are an ambassador who convinces potential clients or reassures existing clients of the value of your brand.
With so much work required in the preparation, consulting and guidance of clients, a personal assistant easily contactable through management software, Skype or on the phone, is vital in allowing you the freedom to focus on the most important tasks at hand.
Your dedicated virtual PA is a valuable asset in guiding your clients in their expectations of your time, and are on hand to handle queries when you aren’t available. In this way, a virtual PA supports you in achieving the best level of client service and work delivery.
Whether you have a few big clients or many smaller ones, a personal assistant supports the seamless running of your own business, by:
- Managing your calendar and appointments.
- Keeping on top of billing, bookkeeping and accounting tasks.
- Conducting travel research and scheduling.
- Handling calls and delivering excellent customer service.
That said, no task is too big or too small, the roles you chose to delegate are entirely at your own discretion.
