As entrepreneurs ourselves we know the score. Building a business is big, it’s exciting and it’s bloody hard work. Despite big dreams and big plans, it’s easy to get bogged down and distracted by the mundane tasks required to build a successful business.
More and more business owners are beginning to understand that the tipping point between success and failure isn’t necessarily a question of where you spend their money, but where you spend your time.
You gotta do what you gotta do.
Whilst we are in the business of delegation, we understand that as an entrepreneur there are some things only you can do:
Painting the Big Picture
When you are at the helm of the ship it’s not just your job, but it’s your responsibility to think ahead, contemplate the future and ponder over the big picture.
Accept the invite
Accept the invite to the Coffee Morning, Alumni Lunch or Networking Apero. You never know who else was on the invite list so don’t pass up on opportunities to gain leads, advice, referrals because you were filing your expenses.
Invest in yourself
Your business needs you passionate, focused and sane, meaning even you need to invest in a little downtime during the weekend to make sure you are up to the task of being a creative problem solver, strategic thinker and innovator Monday through Friday.
But you don’t have to do everything.
In every business there are a select number of tasks that, although chores, just have to be done. Expense reporting. Travel booking. Email Management. Appointment scheduling. We agree these need to be done, but honestly… we don’t believe YOU are the right person for the job.
Why a Virtual Assistant is the right solution.
Increasingly entrepreneurs and business owners are hiring Virtual Assistants to do these jobs efficiently, leaving them with more time to invest into the things that really matter.
But what is it that makes virtual assistants and business owners so well suited?
They are flexible
You know it makes sense to get some help, but you aren’t ready for the financial or legal commitment of a full-time personal or administrative assistant. Maybe you don’t have a desk or hardware to give them. Don’t worry, neither do we!
Our flexible, monthly subscription packages give you the freedom to scale support up or down as you need. No contracts. No desk space. Just the support you need, when you need it.
They help you stay connected
The most innovative companies evolve in parallel with changing consumer behavior. Observing changes in expectations and tailoring their offering accordingly. When your consumers patience is at an all time low – your response time needs to be at an all time high.
When 82% of consumers rate an ‘immediate response’ (≤10 mins) as ‘important’ or ‘very important’, meeting expectations isn’t exactly child’s play. Trust our VA’s to be the eyes and ears of your business, acting on potential leads and staying responsive to your client base.
They are professionals
Strategic. Creative. Risk taker. Does this sound like a bit of you? Then our best guess is that you aren’t motivated at the thought of spending two hours on an expense report, but that you aren’t exactly ‘efficient’ at it either.
Our trusted team of experienced VA’s are detailed orientated, accurate, organised and as resourceful as Bear Grylls when it comes to getting the job done. So leave it in their capable hands and get back to what you do best.
Where to find a Virtual Assistant
Actually, you don’t have to add this to your to-do list because at Houston & Ko we do this for you. No job description. No Interviews. No long list. Not even a short list. A conversation with our business team is all we need to match you with one of our high-quality, experienced and trustworthy VA’s.
