The Virtual Assistant has been credited with turning around the fortunes of many businesses. If you want proof read up on the success stories of Tim Ferris, Michael Hyatt and Pat Flynn. These are all entrepreneurs who were able to build highly successful businesses by using virtual assistants.
If you read further into their life stories, hiring virtual assistants more than just improved the profitability of their businesses. The decision to bring virtual assistants into the fold also changed their lives.
If you are an entrepreneur who feels like he is living for work not working to make a living, then stop what you’re doing. Consider a few ways hiring a Virtual Assistant can change your life.
Have more time with those who matter the most. Why do you put in the time and effort to succeed in your business? For many entrepreneurs, the answer is to provide food on the table and money to pay the bills.
However if you get caught up with your goals, you may overlook your purpose. It’s good to have the sense of responsibility to take care of those you love. But it’s even better to share your time with those you love.
For sure your children, spouse, parents, siblings and close friends would appreciate you more if you could spend more time with them.
By delegating work to your Virtual Assistant, you will have more time to spend with your loved ones.
Remember, time lost can never be found.
Take a vacation. If you haven’t taken a vacation the last 2 years, you may be enjoying great success but chances are, you haven’t lived out your life.
A vacation is one of the best ways to recharge your batteries and enjoy the fruits of your labor. If you have family and have children between the ages of 7 and 12, it is the best time to take them to the happiest places on earth.
Sure a vacation can be expensive. But you can plan and save up for it. Figure out where you want to go and set aside money every month to cover all of your expenses and then some.
The memories alone will be worth it!
Once your Virtual Assistant has become more proficient with the current set of tasks, introduce new ones that entail greater responsibility. Then hire another VA who can take over the first VA’s original set of tasks.
Manage Stress. In the United States, Australia and most countries, stress remains the number one killer.
Stress can lead to many debilitating conditions and illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, Type II diabetes, strokes, high blood pressure and certain forms of cancer.
Hiring a Virtual Assistant relieves you of the stress of having to manage non- essential tasks. It also allows you to allocate 1 to 2 hours a day for exercise which is the best way to manage stress.
Hiring a Virtual Assistant will not only benefit your business. It will also benefit your life.
Realize that a good life is not all about having money. It is about experiencing everything life has to offer and living it to the fullest.
