Why You Need To Hire An Experienced VA
I often hear aspiring coaches and entrepreneurs who are trying to build a 6 figure business say that I need to get to x point in my business or that I need to be earning x amount per month to be able to afford a virtual assistant.
Those that want to hire a VA are often looking for an assistant that charges just $10 an hour or only want support for a few hours a month.
Here’s the thing right, you won’t be able to grow to the point in your head WITHOUT a virtual assistant, because you can’t be everything and do all the things and deliver value to your clients and grow your bottom line month on month. It is not possible to do it all.
Without a virtual assistant to help and support you, you are no more than the assistant in your business. You are not a business owner or an entrepreneur, and not outsourcing or hiring a team can actually stifle the growth of the business.
So we’ve established you need a VA to get ahead, but you don’t just need a VA. You need a highly skilled and experienced VA who gets you and your business. Who cares about your business and your success almost as much as you do (I say almost, because you won’t ever find anyone that cares as much as you, it is your baby after all). One that needs very little hand holding, who can tell you what to delegate and what you should be focusing on. One that will challenge you and make you question – should I really be doing this? Once you find that VA, you need them to be working a minimum of 10 hours A WEEK, ideally 20 hours a week. That’s where the magic happens, that’s where they start to really positively impact your business and your bottom line.
Big Picture and Leadership
The right virtual assistant will save you time so you can focus on the big picture and being a leader. Being creative, creating new courses and valuable content for your clients and tribe. Looking for other opportunities to diversify or grow an additional revenue stream.
You’ll no longer be bogged down by email and managing your inbox with an experienced virtual assistant by your side. Your clients will receive fast responses, prospects will receive a first class experience and your team members will feel less frustrated because they will be receiving timely feedback from you.
More Focus and Less Distractions
You can spend less time hanging out on social media and getting distracted by all the noise, instead using the time online with purpose and passion to attract new clients, grow your visibility and your brand and add a ton of value.
Put Your Life First and Your Business Second
With the massive to-do list of tasks you really shouldn’t be doing, being handled by a pro, you’ll have a better work life balance. You’ll actually be able to put your life first and your business second. Taking a holiday, travelling, experiencing the digital nomad lifestyle you dreamed of when you started your business. You’ll have a great deal more time to spend with your loved ones without worrying about your business grinding to a halt.
Sometimes you need to take that leap of faith before you are ready. Before you have your ducks in a row. Before you are earning a certain income in your business. It’s about making an investment, an investment in yourself, your business and your future. It’s as scary as hell, but if you dive in and make a commitment and have someone else’s wages to pay, I bet you find the passion, the drive and the determination to make it work. Funny how that extra bit of pressure is sometimes what we need to take us to the next level.
