You’re doing it! You’re running a business, or leading a team, and working really hard to realise your dreams, goals and professional purpose.
You’ve realised it’s time to hire an assistant. Someone with the experience and smarts to be proactive, efficient and to help take away the ‘clutter’. Whatever that means for you.
But let me ask you this – do you really need or even want a permanent employee sitting outside your office?
If you’re not sure yet if and how working with a virtual assistant will benefit you and your business, here’s a few points to consider.
As a self-employed executive assistant, I’m an independent business owner. A consultant. A casual. I’m not your employee and you’re not my boss. We’re partners. And what does that mean?
It means I’m not just clocking in to fill in an 8 hour day for the security of collecting my weekly pay. I need to make my time count! My pay packet now is solely dependent on my reputation and the quality and efficiency of my work.
It means your business is as important to me as it is to you.
I’m as committed to your success as you are.
There are many perks to having a fellow independent business owner assisting you. Just for starters, you don’t have to keep me busy for a set amount of hours per day, worrying if you’re giving me enough to do. You don’t have to find me a desk or buy me a phone.
There ‘s no superannuation, holiday pay or payroll to worry about.
You’ll never need to conduct a ‘performance review’ again! Instead, we will have intelligent conversations about areas of improvement that will benefit both of our businesses.
Before I decided to go into business as a virtual assistant, I accumulated significant experience in helping others figure out what they need and making recommendations or just getting it done. You’re so close to your business and doing everything yourself, it may be hard for you to step back and objectively see what could help you.
I don’t have that problem.
Below is a summary of just some of the services I may be able to help you and your business with.
