Being both an entrepreneur and a mom means that you’re doing one of the hardest jobs in the world while running your own business.
It is no easy feat to be a mom while building your empire. It can often feel like there are not enough hours in the day. There are tedious tasks in your business that are distracting you from what is most important and there are skills and programs for your business that you haven’t had the chance to learn yet.
This is where a VA comes in!
A VA can give you back more hours in your schedule to help you focus on tasks that are most valuable for your time and generate more income for your business.
But what exactly is a virtual assistant (VA)? A VA is a person who can provide a variety of services to entrepreneurs or business owners from a remote location. The type of work that a VA may offer can be anything from social media services to administrative tasks to creative work to technical skills and more! There are hundreds of different services that a virtual assistant can offer you. For example:
- Calendar and email management
- Blog post writing
- Social media management
- Video editing
- Data entry
- Graphic creation
- Digital marketing
As a mom and an entrepreneur, you’re probably used to doing everything yourself, working tirelessly, and wearing dozens of different hats.
You may think that you need to do everything yourself in order to keep costs low. But what if I told you that hiring a virtual assistant can actually help you to create more income while allowing you to spend more time with your family?
Get a VA to do the things you don’t know how to do.
It’s unrealistic to expect yourself to be good at everything or to have unlimited energy and time to figure it out. When you get someone else to do a task you don’t know how to do, you’re saving yourself the hours and headache that it would take you to learn how to do it well. A virtual assistant may be able to do a task in a fraction of the time it would take you while potentially producing a better end product. That’s time you now have to grow your business and spend time with your family. By hiring a virtual assistant for tasks you are not good at, you are increasing the level of expertise within your business while saving you time and energy.
Get a VA to do things you don’t like doing.
While running your own business, you likely already know that there are many tasks that are not fun to do. Having to do tasks that you dislike over and over again can lead to burnout. If you hire a VA to do these tasks for you, this can help you stay motivated as you’re not constantly bombarded with tedious tasks that are not enjoyable. This allows you to stay focused on the bigger picture and reach your goals faster.
Get a VA to do things that are causing you overwhelm and stress.
There can be endless tasks to do as an entrepreneur. It can be incredibly overwhelming if you try to take on all of the tasks on your own. Hiring a virtual assistant to decrease the number of things on your to-do list can make being a mom boss feel much more manageable. A VA will help you to increase productivity while decreasing your stress. This will ensure that your business continues to grow while not taking away precious time from your family.
