If you are stumbling to finish your work and spend time with your family or you just don’t have enough hours in the day then a Virtual Assistant may be right for you. Basically a Virtual Assistant is an off-site or virtual member of your team that provides administrative support services through electronic transactions. In this article, I will outline the three key benefits of outsourcing to a Virtual Assistant.
First and foremost Virtual Assistants are small businesses too. They are there to support your needs, and they have to produce in order to get paid. If they don’t work they don’t get paid, it’s that simple. You don’t pay for the time they are not working, unlike employees who may chatter on the phone or take 2-hour lunches or show up late to work or take sick time. And since your relationship is based on a contractual agreement, which specifies what will be done. The work is either done or it’s not, there is no in between.
Hiring a Virtual Assistant actually saves you money! Since you have no on-site employees there is no extra office space rent, additional computers or equipment to buy. There is also no liability, no worker’s compensation insurance, and no payroll taxes to pay. Everyone is an independent contractor and you can employ a virtual assistant for either ongoing work or on a per-project basis.
In conclusion, if you are looking to grow your business, stay more organized and better focus your efforts on building your business rather then doing busy work as well as save money then virtual assistance may be the answer.

hey, I’m Kim + I am ridiculously passionate about helping you to work smarter and not harder + to realize how freaking amazing you actually are, exactly as you are and how easy business really can be when you are in alignment + simplify + add systems to organize your business + plan your business growth. I’ve been geeking out about online business, online marketing + systems + personal development + all that stuff since I created my first business back in 2006 + sold it.
This whole business owner thing is not for the faint of heart, there is a reason why most businesses fail!
While the road to burnout doesn’t look the same for everyone on it there are some similarities you typically experience on this path!
- You’re always in the weeds of your business
- You don’t have efficient systems and processes (or maybe none at all)
- You aren’t delegating effectively
- You can’t take time off
- You’re trying to do too many things at once + wearing all the hats
It’s exhausting just thinking about it! But there’s a way off the hamster wheel!
If you’re overwhelmed, overworked, stressed out, and worried that if you take time off the bottom will fall out from beneath you and your business will fall apart.
Then, you are in the right place my friend, been there, done that, got the tee-shirt and I’d love to support you in ending the cycle!
