The world’s most promising entrepreneurs take the help of Virtual Assistants to start and grow their business.
Here are some case studies as to how eight entrepreneurs who were in different situations benefited by using a Virtual Assistant. Names have been changed to maintain privacy.
SCHEDULING OVERWHELMED HIM
Tony – Scheduling meetings and calls daily, managing emails each and every hour was a Herculean task for him; and within no time, he was getting overwhelmed. It was time, he did something about it; and that’s exactly the reason, why he hired a virtual assistant. That move changed his life as he now has that extra time to spend with family and to get more important things done.
HIS WORK ANGERED HIM
Eric – It was just a few years back when he used to get angry just by sitting at his desk as he had to focus on those tasks that he had very little to no interest. Deciding that enough was enough, he knew that he had to do something. In no time, he hired a virtual assistant. Now, he can focus on work that he enjoys doing and his virtual assistant manages the other types of work as per his requirement making it a win-win situation for both of them.
SHE WAS REPEATING THE SAME THING AGAIN AND AGAIN.
Sheila – She was doing the same tasks over and over again on a daily basis and that’s when she knew that she had to hire a virtual assistant. Going by her previous beneficial experiences with numerous VAs, she knew that she could save a lot of her precious time by hiring a VA. And that’s what she did. Because, in her words, one would definitely want to avoid too much time repeating the same tasks over and over again; and in turn, the time savings of having a VA can be maximized.
HIS PRODUCTIVITY WAS KILLED BY HIS PERSONAL ERRANDS
Nick – His personal life had begun to interfere with his business life and gradually, that was showing up as a problem in his busy business-schedule. Things had progressed to such an extent that he was at crossroads – either do his business work or neglect his personal tasks. Now, he is on the right track and he no longer has to choose between his tasks. It’s all because of his virtual assistant, who manages most of his personal tasks as well as those small business errands that show up every now and then.
HE WAS NEGLECTING THE VITAL TASKS
Paul – It was very late when he realized that he was ignoring his vital tasks and that’s when he stopped in his tracks to reassess his situation. He found out that his workload was too much to handle for one person. It was then he knew that he needed to focus on the core tasks and do what he does best and delegate the other tasks to the Vas who can perform it to the best of their ability. This situation has taught him one important lesson – an entrepreneur can be a jack of all trades, but it doesn’t mean that it has to be that way. The best way to tackle pressure is to focus on the core issues.
HIS BUSINESS WAS EXPANDING
Marcelo – When his business was just starting, he didn’t have the budget to have someone in his office to manage his work and that is why, he tried the services of VAs. In fact, the services of the VAs had impressed him so much that he got his wife to hire a VA for herself too.
HE ACCEPTED THE FACT THAT OTHER COULD DO IT MUCH BETTER THAN HIM
Neeson – He understood it early in his career that as entrepreneurs, they are always used to doing things alone for expanding the business and the fact is that there are some tasks that others can do it much better than them. Hence it makes sense to get a Virtual Assistant.
HE REALISED THAT HE DOESN’T OWN HIS FIRST HOUR
Chris – The first work hour of the day is so important and when the thought dawned on him that his first hour of the day was filled with texts and documents, he took the decision that for him to focus on the right tasks, he needed to hand some of his work to the right person in order to get it done.
