Many entrepreneurs are finding that when they learn to let go of every single detail, they are able to execute their business plans more fully. Sound impossible? Not really. We aren’t talking about failing to follow through, but the art of delegation, using a virtual assistant to help execute your plan.
1. See It – Create It – Implement It Of course, you must first begin with your vision. Start with a vision statement. Take some time and think about it, and then put it on paper. With this in mind, you can begin creating your business. In a bit, we will talk about how a virtual assistant can help you to implement that plan. Use mind mapping software, a simple graph on a sheet of paper, or anything that inspires you, but create your business plan.
2. Here’s Where the Fun Begins? You don’t have to do it all. The truth is that many new business owners wear themselves out trying to do it all. The saying that it “takes a village” could be easily applied to your business as well. You can’t do it all alone.
Any efficiently running office has an office meeting every other week or every week. A strategy building session with your virtual assistant is a good idea and will accomplish the same purpose as any on-site business meeting. It puts you both on the same page. You can use Skype, the telephone, or IM. Whatever works for you is fine, but have a business meeting at least twice a month. Believe me, the time spent will save your countless hours.
3. Take Action. If it’s working, keep doing it. If it’s not, stop doing it. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. Take things in stride, but figure out what’s working and what isn’t working with your business plan. From there, you can continue to move in a positive direction with your clear vision statement in view.
It’s really that simple. You need to be clear, strategize, revisit, and modify when necessary. Through clear communication, your online assistant will be better equipped to execute your business plan to your delight.
