Let’s face it, life as chief executive officer is one of responsibility, stress, innovation, blood, sweat, tears, and eventually rewards. The weight of success rests entirely upon your shoulders, for you are the judge, jury and executioner. You manage the company as a whole; essentially breathing life into the beast of your business. Every employee knows you’re at the pinnacle of the executive ladder, and hence look to you for guidance. It is truly a position made for the strong of heart, for the weight of responsibility can easily crush those who are unprepared or lack conviction.
But even those of you with the heart of a lion and the determination of a bear can fall behind. Business is a hectic marry-go-round, where items are constantly streaming in and out, and at times you get busy and watch as the stack of things-to-do grows rather than recedes. You get caught up, making it near impossible to follow through on every little task, and soon implementation becomes your biggest burden, and you find yourself too busy for a life. At this point, it’s time to get some assistance.
Outside aid can cure your stress that’s about to boil over, and get your business back on a smooth track. In other words, rather than struggle with the endless logistics of organizing the bits and pieces of your company, employ the talents of a personal assistant to pick up the fragments.
Now, you might be thinking that hiring an intelligent and trustworthy aid is a heavy burden in itself, which it certainly can be, but there are simpler and more strategic avenues available to you. Outsourcing to a virtual personal assistant, for example, guarantees a level of professionalism and smarts that can keep up with your demanding business. In one simple step, you will gain the boost needed to complete every little project, thus freeing up your time for what’s truly important—life.
Another You, Virtually
Because the workforce of today is connected digitally, more and more employers are looking for new technical avenues that can increase productivity and efficiency. It’s a band-wagon that not only produces results; it also opens up new streets for innovation and implementation. Constraints in administrative or technical management, for example, are disposed of quickly and proficiently by literate, well-trained and highly professional personal aids. It’s a cost-effective yet resourceful solution that’s an exceptional match for all parties involved. New jobs are being created, and you save a good amount of money.
Think about it. Because virtual assistants are independent contractors you are not responsible for any employee related taxes, insurance, or benefits. Therefore, instead of paying a salary and overhead for a full-time, in-house personal assistant, you can pay a smaller fee for the hours worked to get the job done. Most of administrative and technical work is done at a desk anyway, meaning you also avoid the logistical problems of providing office space and supplies.
It’s a win-win scenario, where you get everything on your to-do list done, while expanding the job market. And by having such a stellar support system you earn the luxury of free time. You are no longer an employee; you are the successful entrepreneur and the CEO you’ve always wanted to be. Finally, you have the opportunity to live your dreams,be with family and friends, and travel the world. You’ll do more and be more.
