Delegate, Focus, and GROW Your Business

Enjoy Your Summer With The Help Of Your VA

Summer is a great time to enjoy time with friends and family; that is unless you are swamped running your business. Work does not stop for business owners just because the sun is shining, and the kids are out of school. However, you can make the most of your summer both at work and home by delegating some of your tasks to a Virtual Assistant. Let your VA take some of the load off so you can get some well deserved time enjoying the last months of summer.

5 Tasks Your VA Can Do To Save You Time

If you are not sure how your Virtual Assistant can help you get more time to play this summer, here are five tasks that you can delegate to your VA:

  1. Email inbox management. Email can become overwhelming, taking too much time out of your busy day. Let your VA manage your inbox, sorting through what is important, what can wait and what can be deleted. This can easily save an hour or more a day that you can use to handle more important aspects of your business.
  1. Social media. Managing social media can become time-consuming. Your VA can manage your tweets, posts and comments on your various platforms, saving you several hours a week.
  1. Calendar management. Stop worrying about what you need to do and do it! Your VA can manage your calendar, set and verify appointments, plus alert you of any important changes. Synch your updated calendar with your smartphone, so you know exactly what you need to do, wherever you are.
  1. Personal assistance. Virtual Assistants can do almost everything an in-person assistant can do, including helping with personal tasks. Stop wasting time searching for the right flight or hotel for your summer trip and let your VA make all the arrangements.
  1. Receivables. Managing receivables is an important and time consuming task for many small business owners. Your VA can take over invoice management, following up on unpaid invoices and reconciling payments received.

While your business is important, so is taking the time to enjoy time with your loved ones. Many of the projects that take up your time every day can easily be delegated to your VA, leaving you more time for focusing on the important aspects of your business and personal life. Summer only comes once a year; get out there and have some fun in the sun!
