Many people like the idea of working with virtual assistants (VA’s). VA’s can do what you don’t want to do, so you can do more of what you want to do. Doing more of what you want to do can increase your wellness and you’ll feel better as a result.
So why don’t more people work with VA’s?
Because they don’t know what VA’s can do for them.
This post describes two ways to figure out what virtual assistants can do for you.
What Should I Ask My Virtual Assistants to Do for Me?
The biggest question most people have about working with VA’s is “What should I ask my virtual assistants to do for me?”
Establishing a framework for deciding what to outsource helps you learn to think about and recognize things in your daily lives you’d like VA’s to do for you. Over time, this type thinking becomes a natural part of your mindset.
This mindset becomes especially valuable when life circumstances change, which they inevitably do.
How to Figure Out What Virtual Assistants Can Do for You
If you’d like to establish a mindset for figuring out what VA’s can do for you, think about tasks that –
1 – In either your personal or professional life, will free time up for you to do either –
2 – Things you want to do, rather than have to do, or
3 – More value-added, rather than administrative, things for your business
If it’s helpful in narrowing the list down further, also think about tasks –
4 – You have to do
5 – Take you more than 5 minutes and less than an hour
6 – Feel like a waste of your time and cause you frustration because you still have to do them
7 – Bonus points if the tasks need to be repeated on a regular basis, i.e. daily, weekly or monthlyI hope this list helps you figure out what VA’s can do for you.
