There’s just something about Fridays. People are just happier and, in turn, the world is a happier place.
In the grand scheme it’s almost puzzling because it doesn’t seem to matter whether a person is a stay-at-home mom or the CEO of a multi-million dollar corporation. It doesn’t matter whether a person works part-time or full-time, or whether that person owns the business or is an employee.
Fridays are something pretty special for almost everyone. As they should be, because regardless of all the aforementioned, necessary roles a person fulfills each day, it can be taxing. Work-life balance is among one of the most prominent topics of conversation among sources like Forbes and Entrepreneur, where you’ll find listicles galore on the reasons why.
And while delegating can be tough, it’s one of the best ways to get your Fridays back to what they should be.
If you’re not sure where to start, you’re not alone and there is good reason. As the number of virtual assistants continues to grow, the tasks they are capable of taking off your plate increases exponentially.
One way to get thinking about what to delegate should involve making a different kind of to-do list. Instead of listing the things that have to get done, list the things you want to accomplish in a day, week, month or year. You may or may not be surprised with what you find.
Here are some of the best tasks to outsource to a virtual assistant:
There’s a reason people spend four years (or more) studying to become a financial professional. There are rigorous licensing courses and continuing education requirements and federal regulations to consider as well. Managing the finances for a company the right way takes time, but it won’t take an expert as much time as it would take the average person to figure out. Keep that in mind when considering what type of work to outsource to a VA.
From data entry and managing email to crafting presentations and scheduling appointments, every little thing adds up. Ultimately that means less time for you to work on your business because you’re too busy working in it. Instead, consider which, if not all, of the daily administrative duties could be easily delegated to someone else.
This word has taken on a new and incredibly pertinent meaning in recent years. While a VA can help with writing thank you notes or holiday cards, one of the best investments a small business can make in this economic climate is on social media marketing. It’s the way of the future, but it’s also the way of today. Reaching people has never been easier, and it is more than a good idea to add social media management to your marketing plan. It’s good business.
