You’re advancing in your career and beginning to feel overworked. Maybe you’ve finally gotten to the point where you want to spend more time with your family. 

You think it’s time to hire a virtual assistant. 

Hiring a virtual assistant can free up your time to focus on the bigger picture, spend more time with family, or have more time to spend on hobbies. The virtual assistant can spend time doing tedious but time-consuming tasks, overall giving you more energy throughout your days. 

Your virtual assistant can also be a second pair of eyes and ears. You will have the benefit of someone working closely with you who can provide a second opinion or insight that you might have missed.  

Keep these things in mind when hiring a virtual assistant: 

Write down what you want to delegate. First, decide what you need help with. Start by paying attention to what you spend time on during the day or week. What are easy, repetitive tasks that you can delegate to someone else? 

Determine your budget for the role. Next, think about how much you want to allocate to hire a virtual assistant weekly/ monthly.  

Write the job description. It’s important to think about how the assistant will be spending their time working for you and what qualifications or skills you may require. 

Use the hiring process as an opportunity to learn about the candidates. Everyone can make a resumé look impressive, but that doesn’t always mean they are the perfect candidate for the job. 

The best part about hiring a virtual assistant is that you can completely tailor the job role to what you need. 

When you find and train the right personal assistant, your everyday life can feel easier! 

With someone doing tasks that shouldn’t be on your radar at all (like researching flights), you’ll have more time and energy to give to your business, family, or personal growth.
