Being a business owner, you can’t help but get involved with everything and anything about your business; both leg and back-end work. Being “hands-on”, is not a bad thing, entirely. But this is where a lot of business owners begin to find the struggle (especially when starting out or at mid-year). They tend to do “too much” and lack the time to do “more important” work such as going out and marketing their business to others.
I loved this the first time I read it:
“Exercise frugality with how you spend your time and I guarantee you’ll make progress far faster than those who are frivolous with theirs”.
This was said in one of the comments in Chris Ducker‘s site. It is a good advise for business owners regarding their precious hours.
So why not get that time back and start working with a Virtual Assistant to do the dirty, back-end work for you?
Here are my Top 10 Tasks You shouldn’t be doing as a busy business owner and which you Can Outsource To Virtual Assistants:
1. Appointment Setting
2. Blog Management
3. Client/Customer Follow-Ups
4. Data Entry and Processing
5. Email Management
6. Preparing Presentations
8. Schedule Management
9. Social Media Accounts Set-Up and Management
10. Social Media and Blog Posting
These are just a few from that endless list of tasks Virtual Assistants can handle. Sure, each VA will have their own areas of expertise but with a bit of training and patience from you, anything is possible!
