As an entrepreneur, you are a visionary. You may even use terms like “cat herder,” “jack of all trades” and “superstar” to describe yourself. But just because you can be practically all things to all functions necessary for your emerging enterprise, doesn’t mean that you should be.
The reality is, you need help – a right-hand man or wing-woman to assist you where it matters most. That’s why a virtual assistant should be your business’s first hire. He or she will become the relief valve that enables you to make the highest and best use of your limited time, fast-tracking progress, motivating productivity and refocusing priorities.
Hundreds of growth-focused proprietors, C-level executives and corporations across the country have added virtual assistants to their teams to get more done. And here’s why you should, too:
Look Ahead, Not in the Rear-View Mirror.
It’s hard to proceed if you’re distracted by the past. Because entrepreneurs are competitive, motivated risk takers and planners, you uphold high standards and, as a result, may dwell on missed opportunities and delayed light-bulb moments. If the details of day-to-day business have gotten in the way, an executive assistant can help renew those ideas, taking them out of freeze-frame and allowing you to put them into motion.

Get Back to What Matters.
All sorts of priorities and pressures pull at business owners’ limited bandwidth. From returning routine calls and comparing vendor quotes to approving designs and posting updates to social media channels, dozens of tasks pile up at every turn and monopolize valuable resources. A quality virtual assistant can assume the lion’s share of customized – and customary – administrative needs. This frees you up to do your best work – lead, think and create.

Virtual assistants fuel productivity, which is a critical currency for successful businesses. If time is money, then utilizing it smartly by delegating key tasks to administrative experts can trigger profitability.
