Whether it’s a new year, a new quarter, or just a new day, it’s still a new opportunity to structure your time, manage your energy, and delegate bothersome tasks so that you can focus on your big picture – your business. Spending a lot of time on necessary but less-than-thrilling details can steal your energy and enthusiasm for what you love most: developing your business.
What are your goals for the year? Surely they aren’t things like finding out which is the best social media dashboard for your needs, licking umpteen stamps for a mailing, or struggling to write something – anything! – for your newsletter each week. My bet is that your sights are set significantly higher.
Maybe your goal is one of these:
• make more money
• get more clients
• spend more time with family and friends
Those are great goals! And you really can achieve them. But how?
Delegating is the Key to Success
There’s a saying: don’t sweat the small stuff. That doesn’t mean you should ignore or forget the small stuff. On the contrary, the emphasis should be placed on YOU. You should not waste your energy (and sweat) on tasks that can be better and more quickly handled by a partner who really gets you and your business goals. The partner you’re looking for is a Virtual Assistant.
My VA: What Can I Offload?
You can delegate almost any task to a VA. When you’re working on your marketing plan, ask your VA to create the spreadsheets and PowerPoint decks. When you want to upgrade your office equipment, assign the tech research to her. If you hate writing social media posts, let your team take care of it for you. Or maybe you have a terrible memory for dates and you frequently forget important client birthdays and anniversaries. Let your VA handle purchasing and sending gifts and cards so you don’t need to worry about it!
It may feel strange to let someone else take care of the details for you, but success can come so much faster when you have help. A VA can assist you with almost any business task. With your guidance and approval, she can ease your load and free you up to focus on what’s really important to you!
