How Virtual Assistance Can Help Startups & New Entrepreneurs

Tony Robbins has been quoted as saying, “Hire someone. That’s what I did in the beginning. My view is I don’t do anything that someone else can do better, and I don’t do anything that isn’t the highest and best use of my time.”

STARTINGa new business is stressful, time-consuming, and exciting all at once.  There are a lot of factors to consider, paperwork to submit, rules & regulations to learn, and supplies/inventory to purchase! It can be a lot for one person to handle. Your main focus is going to be networking and growing your business– things that no one else can do but you. Receipts pile up quickly, inboxes and voicemails fill up, and social media gets ignored. And the longer things pile up, the more your business becomes chaos, and the sooner you start to feel overwhelmed and realize you are not being as productive as you should be. This is why it’s a really great idea to bring on a virtual assistant right away.

Even if you only need a virtual assistant for an hour a day, that’s one hour of tasks that you can breathe easy are getting done instead of piling up. A virtual assistant can handle your bookkeeping, data entry, scheduling, and social media and can return phone calls and e-mails, just to name a few! Imagine how much more efficient you could be if someone was helping you with all of those things!

Because remember: if someone else can do it better then it’s going to look better and sound better – which makes you and your business stand out.

Your virtual assistant should be someone who plans to stick around and grow with you and who is passionate about what you are doing. You should be able to add hours to their week and tasks to their list as needed over time. If 5 hours per week doesn’t work for your person, or they are only looking for short-term work, you are setting yourself up for more headaches down the road. You would have to now spend your time recruiting someone new (which takes a really long time), training them, and getting them acclimated to the “old” system from your previous assistant.

Virtual assistance is a relatively new concept as the technology age has expanded and we have transferred more of our lives and businesses online. The concept may seem foreign to you, and that’s OK! There are many things for new entrepreneurs and startups to consider, but with research and planning, you will most definitely be successful.
