Many business women feel that asking for help is a sign of weakness. The truth is, a strong woman accepts help to ensure she remains strong. You simply cannot do everything by yourself. You’ve probably heard this from many of your friends and family members as well.
Reports by Forbes, the U.S. Air Force and others support strength in help. By accepting help, you will experience less burnout, fewer meltdowns and more energy.
If you work inside or outside the home, you probably have a sitter, a nanny or a daycare and possibly someone to help with housework. When you leave town, you have someone drop by to get your mail, feed your pets, walk the dog, change the cat litter and water your plants. If you have older parents, you hire someone to help with their chores. If they are bed-bound, you hire someone who is trained to do the heavy lifting. Why? Because you can’t do it all.
Your business is no different than ordinary life. Even if you can’t hire someone for regular work, it’s possible to hire a virtual assistant to do work as needed–when you get bogged down with other work, family issues, an illness or just need to take some time off.
A virtual assistant who has made this her business understands your needs. She has an unbiased shoulder to cry on and can carry some of your burdens for you. She is someone who understands confidentiality, so she’s the best person to pitch your new ideas to. She can also bring fresh ideas to your business that you may be missing.
A virtual assistant has her own tools or can use your cloud-based business tools, so that’s why she’s the best person to hire. She can help you answer emails, update your social network, reply to blog comments, write your blog and website content, transcribe your YouTube videos for SEO content, do research, proofread documents, handle your accounts payable and receivable and many other demanding parts of your job.
Needless to say, a virtual assistant is like a clone that makes your life easier. By hiring a virtual assistant, you won’t have to work from sunrise to sunset to make your business a success, providing spare time for you to spend with your family or just to relax. You may even see a rise in profits! Win, win, win!
