A virtual assistant is more than someone who just does your admin tasks, we are also your virtual co-worker!
Working by yourself in your home office can get lonely sometimes, especially if you don’t have another co-worker to bounce ideas off or asking for help when it comes to certain things.
It doesn’t have to be that way, having a virtual assistant as part of your team you can contact them to discuss certain things, bounce ideas off or get their opinion on something that is concerning you.
I have clients who get me to read their articles, letters, flyers & etc to see if it reads well or check the spelling and grammar. Then I have clients who ring me to discuss something that isn’t working, but when they talk it out loud the solution hits them or they ask my opinion to get a different point of view before they go ahead with the idea.
Even though you are working in different offices you can still work as a team and that way you don’t feel like you are doing business alone.
My clients know they can contact me any time to be their sounding board and they know they will get my honest feedback. I enjoy helping them and it feels good to be part of their team when they can trust you and value your opinion and help.
Once you reach the stage to start outsourcing parts of your business, put a virtual assistant at the top of the list so you can have someone who takes care of your admin tasks and be your virtual co-worker. Don’t do business by yourself, build a good team to support you and your business, once you have that good team, you know you can concentrate working on growing your business.
