What’s the #1 reason you need a Virtual Assistant?…
…to avoid the pitfall of drowning in your business!
- I can’t afford a Virtual Assistant.
- No one can do it the way I can.
- I’ve tried it and it didn’t work out.
These are valid reasons at certain stages in business but many people use them as excuses.
Let’s look at excuse number 1 – I can’t afford a Virtual Assistant.
With only 24 hours in a day, perhaps you are working 15 or 16 hour day’s like I was before hiring my first virtual assistant. If you are constantly worrying about unanswered emails, not posting consistently on social media, booking & confirming appointments, sending out invoices or even following up on payments, then you are not putting in the kind of quality hours that are required to grow your business.
You are merely drowning in administrative jazz. Tasks that you can outsource if you wanted to. Not only do you free up your time, but you’re also able to minimize your stress and make space in your head for the things that only you can do. It is those things that only you can do that will grow your business and generate more income.

Then there is Excuse number 2 – No one can do it the way I can.
This is a lie that a lot of business owners tell themselves. Simply put, if you can teach someone else to do it, then you don’t need to do it. You should only be focused on doing the things in your business that no-one else can do. Find 3 things that only you can do and outsource as much of the rest as possible.
- If you’re a coach, coach!
- If you’re a realtor, sell!
- If you’re an author, write!
The Pareto Principle or as it’s more commonly known these days, the 80/20 Rule, states that 20% of your time spent is what generates 80% of your results. Why wouldn’t you want to focus all of your effort on the 20% that increases your revenue?

So the next time you consider hiring a VA but you don’t, ask yourself, what is the real cost to my business if I don’t hire one?
