As a business owner you need to act and think responsibly. You need to ensure your money is spent wisely and you have a budget to follow (or at least you should). “I don’t need to delegate”. “I don’t need to hire a virtual assistant (VA).” “I can’t afford to hire a VA or delegate to someone who doesn’t know my business.” This entire blog could be focused on your excuses or reasoning. How about we look at the pros, instead of the cons, and then you decide how to proceed.
My recent delegation blogs have given you all kinds of reasons to delegate. Not only is basic delegation to employees important, but it’s also crucial for running a business and allowing leaders to focus on sales, growth, clients, and other important duties. But, if you only have a few employees or you are a solopreneur, you don’t have many options for delegating. Hiring a VA is your best bet. They can start quick, they are experienced in their field (think administrative, payroll, IT, websites and social media), and they can save you a bunch of time on tedious tasks. Trust me, there is a VA out there for you and most come equipped with a variety of skills meaning they can handle and/or juggle a variety of responsibilities.
"Oh, but they are so costly, and I can’t afford to spend much money right now." I disagree! You could literally hire a VA for $12.00 an hour, but I’m of the opinion that most times you do get what you pay for. They have bills, businesses expenses and families to feed, not to mention they are business owners -- just like you! They are providing their own equipment, business insurance, experience and software in a lot of cases. They. Are. Worth. The. Money. Do you have to pay $50-$80 an hour? In some cases, yes! Can you get a reliable, skilled, professional, Rockstar VA for $35-$40? Also, yes!
Let’s discuss a few of the ways spending money can save you money, get you more clients, and help grow your business.
Stop procrastinating. Stop telling yourself you don’t need to delegate. Stop assuming it’s too costly. Delegation and Virtual Assistants go hand in hand. High five to that! Wanna learn more about options for hiring a VA, click our Request Consult button at the top of the page!
