Tracy Walker is a typical entrepreneur. Her head is swimming with great ideas. Her challenge, again as with most entrepreneurs, is implementing them. She has the skills and the know-how, she just doesn’t have the time.
Can you relate?
Most entrepreneurs come up with million dollar ideas every day. The first thing to remember is this: you’ll probably come up with more ideas than you can use in a lifetime, so choose wisely. Here are a few important steps to take as you move forward with your business:
• Know the direction you want to go (goals and objectives)
• Write a business plan
• Design a system for qualifying your ideas
It’s easy to be distracted these days as opportunities are fundamentally unlimited. Recent advances in technology have opened up a global marketplace and with it, placed all kinds of prospects at our virtual doorsteps.
With a well-thought-out business plan and targeted marketing plan your business can explode. But ignore setting up a proper foundation and your business can implode.
In the attached video, entrepreneur Tracy Walker describes how a 123Employee VA performs tasks that free her time so she can focus on doing the things that help her business grow. Like many, at first she had no idea how to work with a 123 Employee VA, but soon discovered how valuable this would become.
A VA (virtual assistant) works remotely to perform the tasks assigned by business people. We all have items on our to-do lists that can be delegated to others, such as social media, email marketing, maintaining our data bases and more. Until we assess our task lists and duties we often don’t realize how many things can be outsourced to a trusted VA.
Here’s an exercise that will help you see how hiring a VA can help you get things done: Take out a blank piece of paper and draw a line down the middle. Title the section on the left, IGAs (Income Generating Activities). This refers to tasks that have a direct impact on generating profits in your business. Example might be, meeting with prospects, attend networking events, create online products for sale.
At the head of the column on the right side, write the word Tasks. Now think about your business and what it takes to run it. Think of the things you do day to day. Most people have several tasks listed under the Tasks heading. These are duties that by outsourcing you can free yourself to spend more time on the IGAs and increase profits.
