Congratulations! You’ve reached the point in your business where it’s time to start delegating!
Growing your own business is phenomenal, and doing it for yourself brings the most amazing sense of satisfaction and achievement.
But it can also bring stress, over-tiredness, loss of focus, chaos and burnout to name but a few.
When these downsides start to worm their way in, it’s time to step back and appreciate the scale of all you have achieved, give yourself a huge pat on the back and admit to yourself that it’s time to get some help!
Reaching a stage in your business where you need to ask for help, need to delegate, need to outsource, need to go from Me to We is a HUGE milestone and is something well worth a little celebratory dance at the very least. It means you’re doing it RIGHT!
You don’t have to battle on, working more and more hours, spending less and less time outside of your business. You have options!
Let Me Save You Some Time…
So, What Options Do You Have?
I’m a Freelance Virtual Assistant. I’m the person who loves those business tasks that you no longer have time for or no longer have the enthusiasm for. Is your time really best spent doing your admin? Keeping your Social Media up to date? Logging transactions? Creating documents?
How Much is your free time worth to you?
Have a little think about how much you charge for your products or services. How much £ is an hour of your time worth? My hourly rate is £30 per hour. Aren’t you better using that hour of your time to generate an income rather than stuck at your desk fighting your way through something someone else can do for you?
How To Decide What To Outsource
Make a List! Take a moment to write down everything you’ve done in your business this week. Now grab some highlighters and highlight all of the tasks that you, and only you can do.
What’s left is your starting point for delegation. Which of those tasks are the most time consuming? Which are the ones you really dislike? Those are the ones you look to outsource first. For every task you dislike, someone out there loves it! Usually me, I’m a bit strange like that…
How I can help you…
E-mail Marketing & Newsletters
Social Media Administration
Software/app set up
Document creation & formatting
My current rate is £30 per hour, billable on the last day of the month. My services are available for both ongoing and one-off projects, with only 1 hour minimum time charge per month – you’re not locked in to a retainer at any point, all I ask is you give me a rough idea of how much of my time you will need at the start of the month. If you need more of my time, with enough notice that’s not a problem! If you need less than you estimated, again, not a problem! If we work together and communicate, I’ll always have the time you need, when you need it, and you won’t be charged for any time you didn’t use!
Got a task to outsource that isn’t covered here?
These are just an overview of what I can do for your business. If you have something specific in mind that you want to get off your desk and on to mine, just give me a shout. There’s a good chance I’ll be able to help, and if I can’t, I’ll know someone who can.
