Top 5 things to delegate to a Virtual Assistant, today (and how to do it)

“Time = life; therefore, waste your time and waste of your life, or master your time and master your life.” Alan Lakein

· Feeling overwhelmed and know you need help, but don’t know where to start?

· Are you spending too much time on admin and feel like you’re not getting anything done?

· Do you dread checking your emails and feel like you’re a slave to your inbox?

· Need a holiday?!

We get it. It’s easy to get swamped in your business and take on everything yourself. Before you know it, you’re stressed and tired and find yourself responding to emails or booking flights in the middle of the night!

Here’s a list of the top 5 things you could delegate today, to free up some of your time.

1. Email and diary management

A Virtual Assistant (VA) can have full access to your inbox and calendar. They can respond to your emails on your behalf, flag important emails, book in meetings and fully manage your schedule

2. Travel bookings

A VA can book all business or personal travel for you. From flights and trains to hotels and transfers. They can even order your travel money!

3. Research

Need to research that big potential client you have a meeting with next week, or need to know the top 3 co-working spaces near you? Consider it done!

4. Document editing

VAs are skilled administrators and can edit and sort the messiest of a Word document or PowerPoint slide. The messier the better…bring it on!

5. Project co-ordinating

From managing an office move to organising a corporate event. VAs can fully manage and co-ordinate many projects

Working with a VA means that you can focus on what you need to, with the peace of mind that things are still getting done.

VAs can respond to your emails, manage your diary, book travel, make dinner reservations, book doctor appointments and even order your loved ones gifts for birthdays or anniversaries!

Even if you’re only spending 1 hour a day on these tasks, that’s a time saving of 20 hours per month.

Most business owners end up getting stuck with basic and repetitive admin tasks that either don’t compliment their skill set or they don’t have time to do.

They get stressed out and spend too much time on minor but necessary administrative tasks.

Virtual Assistants are experts in their field. They enjoy administration, problem solving and organisation.

They work on administration tasks and projects all day every day and have exposure to a variety of programmes, tools and ‘best practice’…making them efficient and well suited to attacking your to-do list.

We’d love to hear from you to discuss how we can save you time. Get in touch, to discuss.
