Delegate, Focus, and GROW Your Business

Use Your VA To Shorten Your To-Do List

A business owner’s to-do list can be long and at times seem never ending. Although it is understandable that many items on that list are things that should be done personally, often times they can be delegated to someone else. If your list has become overwhelming and distracting you from the important task of running your business, give your Virtual Assistant the chance to take some of those items off your plate.


There are many tasks that a VA can take over that do not necessarily need to be done by you personally. You may take pride in your ability to multi-task and handle your large workload, however, there are better ways to use your expertise and time than doing mundane administrative work. Your VA can take over some of these duties, such as writing reports, creating spreadsheets, emails and proofreading.


Not all of us are as tech savvy as we think we should be. For many business owners, there is no time to keep up with learning all the new technology necessary to stay competitive. This is a great area to make use of your VA. There are always new innovations that can help your business and increase revenue. Have your VA explore ways to automate and keep your business up on the technological advances that are constantly changing.


If there are items on your to-do list that you constantly procrastinate about, maybe it is time to outsource these tasks to your VA. We all have parts of our jobs that we would rather not do, whether they are time consuming, boring or just not our cup of tea. Regardless of the reason, it can be assumed that they must be accomplished, so why not give these over to someone else to take over, like your VA? Stop dreading these tasks and start delegating them. Problem solved!

Take the time to look at all the tasks that you personally do every day, week and month and discuss ways to move some of these off your plate and onto your VA’s. It can free up more of your time to focus on the projects that really need your attention and expertise. By utilizing your VA’s skills you can also utilize more of your own.
