I know you’ve heard this before: “To get your business to the next level, you must delegate some things.” Yes, you do need to get rid of at least one or two hats. But how? Even though you know in your heart how right this advice is, you’ve grown accustomed to going it alone.
Even delegating basic clerical tasks makes you realize there are many aspects involved in each tiny part of your puzzle. And you are right! Each and every part of your business is important. You don’t want to delegate tasks to a person who doesn’t care the same way you do about your business, do you?
Of course not. You don’t just need clerical or secretarial assistance. You need real, professional administrative assistance from someone who has been there and knows what it’s like being a solopreneur and small business owner. That someone is a Virtual Assistant.
Virtual Assistants are in the business of caring about your business and proactively supporting your needs by not only performing tasks, but also adding value to your business — the things they are expert in, they can do better than you!
Letting go — is this a “dealing with change” issue? I don’t think so! Even if it’s giving away one of the hats you don’t like, it’s still YOUR hat so make a wise choice. To grow your business, you need to focus on what you do best. We all know that’s true. But finding the right person is still key.
A professional Virtual Assistant knows how it feels to wear that many hats. She or he has been there and will support your way to success by providing professional assistance. You’ll not just be delegating, you’ll be strengthening your business by getting the right partner.
To grow your business, you MUST get rid of at least some hats. Find the perfect “head” for that hat of yours. An experienced, skillful, resourceful Virtual Assistant is a successful solopreneur who will contribute more than you would ever expect.
