Entrepreneurs, business owners, and C-level executives alike often fall prey to “hustle culture,” the idea that when it comes to business, they must do everything themselves. What they’ve started they must build, and what they’ve built they must maintain. If you’re not going a hundred miles an hour, do you even care about your business?
However, the reality is that you can care about your business while also getting the rest you deserve. How? With a virtual assistant.
No Glory in the Grind
Hustle culture is the idea that if you work long hours and place your own personal needs on the back burner, you’ll succeed in business. Unfortunately, this is a myth. The reality is that in order to build a thriving business, you must first take care of yourself. Many believe that by giving themselves to their work, they’ll climb the corporate ladder, get that coveted promotion, or grow their business on their own blood, sweat, and tears.
Yet hustle culture, deep down, is driven by shame and guilt rather than achievement and empowerment. Workaholics erroneously believe their “worth” comes by the work that they do rather than who they are as a person. If a certain amount of projects aren’t done or several hours aren’t worked, depression or unworthiness can easily set in.
“The grind” will eventually grind you down until you finally burn out.
Break the Cycle
If your hours are unsustainable and you’re always exhausted, now is the time to get yourself a virtual assistant. Combat hustle culture by refusing to sacrifice yourself, your family, and your own peace of mind for your business. At Emerald Virtual Assistance, we know the importance of giving our clients back hours in their day. It’s one of the most rewarding things we do. We love to hear stories of our clients who are so thankful the weight of the world has been taken off their shoulders.
By handing your excess workload to your VA, you’ll have a professional in your corner who’ll get things done right and on time. You’ll be free from the endless demands of your to-do list and the relentless ticking of the clock. With your VA, you’re not alone and you won’t have to do it all yourself. Finally you’ll be free to attend your daughter’s recital, your mother’s birthday dinner, or your long-overdue doctor’s appointment.
Your job is not worth your health or your personal life.
Invest in Yourself
VA’s are a fantastic business investment and will help your business to grow and flourish. However, the greatest investment you can give your business—is yourself. By working long hours and ignoring your body, your food, and your sleep cycle, everything suffers, from productivity to your own immunity against illnesses. Time off fuels creativity and taking care of yourself feeds the soul.
EVA firmly believes taking care of yourself often means looking outside of yourself. We exist to give you much-needed time to relax, unwind, and destress. If you are tired of being tired, give us a call. A VA might just be what the doctor ordered.
At Emerald Virtual Assistance, our VA’s will help you combat hustle culture. Schedule a consultation today and learn how your VA will free you from the grind.
