Virtual Assistants: The Entrepreneur of Entrepreneurs

When it comes to start-ups, small businesses, and established companies, hiring a virtual assistant is one of the smartest, and most cost-effective business decisions you can make. Why? Because a VA is the entrepreneur of entrepreneurs. If you need to get your records in order, your calendar sorted, or your web copy written, perhaps an independent contractor is exactly what you need. VAs work for themselves and, like many entrepreneurs, have their own clientele. They are not hired employees, which as independent contractors, keeps your overhead costs down.

The Ideal Client

A VA’s ideal client is anyone who needs help with overloaded work. Many entrepreneurs have calendars or inboxes bursting at the seams. Sometimes, little tasks need to get done but are always pushed aside, thus becoming a monumental mountain. These could include bookkeeping tasks, lagging social media, or writing projects that can never seem to get off the ground.

Once your VA gets all your odd jobs sorted and everything is working like a well-oiled machine, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without a VA in the first place.

Avoid the Payroll

Sometimes entrepreneurs bite the bullet and hire an office assistant to handle the load, but that brings on headaches of its own. These headaches include payroll, health insurance, scheduling hours, and so on. Avoid the hassle of an OA in favor of a VA. 

VAs also allow you to rethink the office in a whole new way. They work remotely, which means they are available to help you wherever they are in the world, and more importantly, wherever you are as well. Distance is no obstacle when it comes to hiring a VA. Professional VAs with companies such as Emerald Virtual Assistance, are hired according to varying hourly packages depending on how many hours per month you need. As independent contractors, VAs only use their hours when work is needed and not because they’ve simply clocked in.

VAs Have Several Clients

VAs are essentially in business for themselves. As such, they have several different clients that could run the gamut of the business world, from finance to graphic design, and from pharmaceuticals to cooking schools. This means a VA has vast knowledge in many different circles, making them invaluable as the help a struggling entrepreneur needs.

Invest In Your Time

For our clients, there is nothing more valuable than their time, whether dinner with the family, kicking back and relaxing, or finally going on that dream vacation. Ultimately this is what you’re investing in by hiring a VA—your own valuable time. Instead of nickel-and-diming yourself by juggling everything at once, outsourcing your work is one of the best moves you can make to save your sanity, and also that of your loved ones. 

There’s nothing quite like being present and available for those you love. By hiring a VA, you’ll not only get your precious time back, but you’ll set yourself up for success by making sure every “i” is dotted and every “t” is crossed.
