The Truth About Virtual Assistants, Part 2
Still looking for the truth about virtual assistants? In yesterday's post, we looked at one of the biggest myths I've discovered. That is, "My business can't afford to hire virtual assistants."
Now that we busted that myth, let's look at the second most common myth I've seen associated with virtual assistants…It sounds something like this: "My business isn't big enough to hire a virtual assistant." Even if you are a one-man show, and maybe especially if you are a one-man show, that is a myth of monumental proportions.
No matter how small your company is, it's not too small for a virtual assistant. Think about it for a minute. How much time do you spend, or perhaps waste is a better way to look at it, on administrative tasks that could be outsourced to someone else who could do it just as efficiently as you – and free you up for revenue-generating opportunities? How much time do you spend? An hour, two hours, three hours?
Why should you spend, er waste, your valuable time on billing, appointment-setting, calendar maintenance, bookkeeping, travel arrangements, or expense tracking when a virtual assistant can easily handle all those tasks for you? The answer is…you shouldn't. And you don't have to when you hire a virtual assistant.
Virtual assistants free up your time so you can concentrate on your core business. In fact, if you want to grow your business, a virtual assistant can be the best way to spread yourself out without spreading yourself too thin.
