Hiring A Virtual Assistant Can Buy Back Your Time.
If you have ever felt chained to your computer, then it might be time to consider Hiring a Virtual Assistant. Even adding one person to take over some tedious tasks can buy back some of your time and freedom.
Sometimes our dream of being self employed can turn into a bit of a nightmare! When you discover getting some help through outsourcing, it opens up a whole new world, and renews the dream of self-employed freedom that likely lead you to be a Solopreneur in the first place.
Chris states …
As entrepreneurs and business owners, our most precious resource is time. And the only way to leverage your time is to hire staff, particularly – as online business owners – virtual staff.
Chris Ducker from YouPreneur FM did a great Podcast a while back which ‘hits the nail on the head’. He referred to ‘getting back to basics’ with your business and buying back your time.
You can check out the particular episode here: Chris Ducker – YouPreneur (Episode 127) – The Quick-Start Guide to FINALLY Getting Started with Your First Virtual Assisant.
I think a lot of SoloPreneurs by their very nature tend to want to do it all. In particular when starting out, they may think that will be easy enough, but rarely is that achievable without some form of team support.
We can get so caught up with the dream, the ideal of being able to be our own boss, sitting on the beach in our pyjamas! (Just kidding … well each to their own I guess). We forget about business basics and often find ourselves treating our business as a hobby!
Again to quote Chris …
In fact, I believe every online business owner has the ability to grow even further beyond where they want to be – it’s a mindset shift that’s required. Everything from knowing what you’re good at and want to focus on, right down to being honest and learning to let go.
