Are you tired of doing everything yourself? You are looking for relief from those nagging tasks that you never seem to get accomplished though you know they need to get done. Yet, it’s hard to give up control. You built the business from the ground up and feel you need to control everything. This is understandable, but there is another solution.
Any successful business will reach a point where they have to delegate tasks to others, but they aren’t sure they can afford a full-time assistant. This is where virtual assistants come in. We can work part-time or full-time depending on your needs. After all, trying to do it all isn’t working.
Is It Practical?
Yes, and in reality it saves you time and money when you look at the big picture. I had one real estate agent tell me that using a virtual assistant to ease up the responsibilities that didn’t need her personal touch was the best decision she ever made. She was then able to concentrate on the aspects of her business that she liked.
Another agent told me that he needed to be selling houses. He didn’t like the administrative side of the job, though he could have done it all himself. In fact, he had three virtual assistants who cared for different aspects of his business – transaction coordination, buyer tour coordination, and listing coordination. With this plan in motion, he was one of the top producers in his office.
Another agent said he needs to be in the field with his clients. This is his expertise. He didn’t have the time to concentrate on admin tasks, and he really did not want to either. He needed a drip campaign, buyer’s guide, and seller’s guide to be created for his buyers and sellers. This is the practical side of using a virtual assistant.
Was This What You Had In Mind
When you started your business fresh, did you plan to spend long hours at your desk with no end in sight? I doubt this was what you had in mind. You probably imagined having more time for yourself than you did at your 9 to 5 job. Is is impractical to envision yourself working less when working for yourself? Yes, it is if you have the right systems in place. Is it hard to create and implement these systems? No, it isn’t hard at all.
