The reason we work and grow our business is because of our family. We work from home so we can be there for our family when they need us. We do it so we don’t have to ask for time off or worry if we’ll have a job to come back to if something happens.
A family emergency can happen at any time and to say the least, they’re uncontrollable. These emergencies can take a few hours to handle or several days or weeks. No matter what, if we need to be there for our family it can happen.
The down side to a family emergency has to do with your business. If we don’t work our business on a daily basis, we won’t grow. That can easily happen when a family emergency arises. There is a solution to this: hire a Virtual Assistant or Online Business Manager.
Your VA/OBM can do things within your business to keep it running smoothly so you continue to earn an income while taking care of your family. Your VA/OBM can take care of your business while you deal with all aspects of the situation taking you way from your business. If something requires your attention, she can let you know and help you handle that as well.
When you hire a Virtual Assistant or Online Business Manager to help you with your business, you have the ability to assign tasks to her that will give you the time you need to be with your family. This will help you to do very little with your business during this time, but it will be enough to continue to grow your business. Depending on your business, you may not have to do anything at all or you may need to do minimal work. You can still see growth or at least maintain your business during this time.
Family emergencies can happen at anytime and will require your attention. That doesn’t mean your business has to suffer when this happens. Hire a VA or OBM to help you take care of your business while you tend to your family.
