If you’ve been thinking of outsourcing to a Virtual Assistant, you absolutely should.
There are probably obvious indications that you need to start outsourcing. But you don’t have to wait for the signs. The earlier you start outsourcing, the quicker your business will grow. If you hold off on outsourcing your business can become stagnate.
Here are a few signs that you need to start outsourcing today…
Your days are maxed out
This can happen easily if you are a service provider, but it can happen in all types of businesses. There are only so many hours in the day and no matter how many you work, there’s a limit to how much income you can bring in. You can’t do everything yourself and need to outsource to increase your billable hours. Every good CEO has people who work with them to get things done.
You constantly hire last-minute help
If you often find yourself in a bind last minute and are hiring help and paying higher rates then you likely need to outsource more frequently. When you find someone or a team to outsource to regularly instead of last minute, you’ll receive higher quality work and typically pay less. Plus you won’t be stressed out about finding help last minute to reach deadlines.
You don’t have time to add more products or services
As a business owner, you have to stay on top of technology and create new products or update your current ones. If you find you never have time to develop new products then you are going to miss out on change in the industry and be left in the dust.
You procrastinate on certain tasks time and time again
Do you have those regular tasks that you dread doing? I know I do. Why not outsource them? There is no reason that you should be spending time on these types of tasks when you can find someone else to do them for you.
You have no-work-life balance
Has work been taking time away from your family, friends and yourself? Are you finding that you don’t have time to eat, take a shower or spend time with your loved ones? If so then you have no-work-life balance and need to start outsourcing.
Your customer service is suffering
If you find that you are having issues fulfilling obligations, it could be that you are overworked. If you’re working all the time but still can’t meet your deadlines and are not providing the best to your customers then it’s probably time to hire on help before your business starts suffering.
I know outsourcing can seem daunting. I’m in the process bringing on help and it’s been a little overwhelming. One thing I’ve been doing recently is recording my regular tasks so that I can share the videos with my VAs. It’s like getting two things done at once. Loom is a great tool to do this.
