On any given day a VA (Virtual Assistant) may perform work for two or more different clients. That’s one reason I love what I do. I enjoy working with multiple dynamic business owners who are experts in their field. My last blog, “It Takes A Village” talked about the importance of having a network of resources to boost team “you.” Adding a VA to your team affords administrative support as needed because a VA spends concentrated time on the task(s) at hand, providing a cost-effective and timely solution to tackling your to-do list. Solopreneurs can pump up productivity by focusing on the parts of business they are most passionate about while handing off specific tasks or functions to a VA. When working with multiple clients, a VA must be able to maintain focus and attention for each client.
Finding your match: If you’re a small business owner seeking the services of a VA (Virtual Assistant), ask a colleague for a referral or utilize online networking to connect with a virtual administrative professional. Consider what task(s) or function(s) you will outsource and include in your initial correspondence. The small business owner and the VA can ascertain from the ensuing communications whether the needs, services, work styles, and expectations mesh. A business owner may opt to work with multiple VAs for specialty services such as website management, social media management and customer service support.
Recap: Solopreneurs can pump up productivity by focusing on the parts of business they are most passionate about while handing off specific tasks or functions to a VA. (“Love the One You’re With” is a 1970 single by folk rocker Stephen Stills)
On this Valentine’s Day I wish you continued sweet success!
