Are You, The Business Owner, Holding Your Business Back?
As a business owner, checking your profit margin each month is just as important as checking your business plan.
We continually check both to make sure our monthly expenses are on track with our desired income for the year. Correct?
Therefore, the question is; Could you be holding your business back from being more successful than it already is?
As we’ve already discussed in Virtual Assistant Services For Business Owners; businesses cannot run effectively as a “one-man show“. It is impossible to own, manage, promote, prospect and maintain your business without assistance.
With that thought in mind then, the question now is; Have you thought about having an assistant help you with the tasks that are time consuming, or even the ones you just don’t like to do…even if you are good at them?
Let’s do a short exercise, to see if you’re holding your business back:
- Create a list of tasks that consume your time each month; or even each week.
- Create a list of tasks that you don’t like to do.
- Create a list of tasks that you don’t have the time to learn how to do, but need (or just want) done.
When you take a look at the lists you just made, the next question to consider is; How can you not afford an assistant?
From the list of tasks you just wrote down, figure up how many hours you spend each month in getting them completed. I can imagine those tasks actually add up to quite a large block of time. Time that could be available for you to focus on building your business.
Now, the next step, is to figure out your “hourly rate“. When you take a look at how much YOU are costing your business, you’ll quickly come to the realization that it is VERY cost effective to hire a Virtual Assistant.
Holding yourself hostage from being productive also holds your business hostage. And, ultimately, your bank account as well.
We’re here to help your business grow and we’re here to do it cost effectively. We provide a One Hour FREE Consultation and a FREE estimate before any project is started. If the project can be broken down into stages in order to fit better into your budget, we’ll be happy to do that as well.
What hourly rate did you come up with? What type of time consuming tasks do you perform each month that actually DON’T produce any revenue for you?
