Yes, Virtual Assistants Work Smarter By Hiring Teams too.

It’s day 16 of the Blog Challenge with Natalie Sisson and I have my 17 month old helper on my lap today for this post!

Though that’ not the help we will cover today in response to the topic! :)

Natalie asks, “How will you build a team around your vision and work smart instead of hard?”

Work Smarter as a Virtual Assistant

As a Virtual Assistant/OBM this is what I help my clients with everyday. Turning the consistent tasks into delegated projects for a VA, which for me ranges from website management to data entry, to work smarter towards their vision of an ideal lifestyle.

When you are a VA or OBM, it can prove challenging to learn the concept of delegation, even though it’s what we teach and do. Maybe it’s because we do it all for others, we automatically think we can handle our own businesses. However, it’s absolutely impossible to hold onto your sanity after a certain point of having a never ending task list, even at the end of the day.

 How I’ll Work Smarter

So, working smarter and not harder is for me all about delegation to another Virtual Assistant, who I teach my business processes to. It’s really quite a simple concept and having the right tools in place or business processes written out can allow one to fully provide the right services to you on the level you wish to have them provided.

The key is to not let your business get overrun before you hire someone to help you. Read more about When to Hire a Virtual Assistant.

    1. I became a VA by getting out there- telling everyone what I did. Once I made a great connection working with someone I knew, I was referred and I grew. Though, freelancing is where a lot of people start too, which I tried myself on Elance for a very short time before I started with the previously mentioned client. Do this industry interest you?
