The thought of having someone do all your stuff is super tempting but how do you know when you’re ready for that step?
Hiring on a virtual assistant before you’re ready could actually be a very costly mistake. If you aren’t totally sure what you need them to do, then it could be a waste of everyone’s time and let’s be honest; ain’t nobody got time for that am I right?
The first step to know that you’re ready to hire a virtual assistant is if you have a really solid handle on your entire business. Surprised? It’s true. Here’s the thing—you can’t hand something off that you aren’t a thousand percent sure you know exactly how you want done. You need to have your processes down to the point where anyone could step in and take over and that takes some dedication.
How is your virtual assistant going to know what you need if you don’t? Make sense? When you have a handle on how you want everything done then you’ll know that you’re ready to hire some help for the things you maybe don’t love to do.
The most important thing no matter who you hire, is that you have to maintain your voice in everything you put out to the world.
It’s a mistake to hire someone who is going to take over your voice if they don’t know it like the back of their hand. It’s really best to start hiring things out such as creating some graphics for quotes that you have provided or doing some data entry stuff that literally anyone can do.
Your voice is everything. It’s how you connect with your people so be very careful who you entrust with that task. Start handing off the tasks that don’t have to do with your voice to free up your time to connect with your audience. Always keep your end game at the forefront of your mind. Your people are what matters so try not to do anything that will put any separation between you.
