Where are you coming up short?
Are you struggling to stay on top of – and even in front of – your personal calendar and all of its demands?
Are you missing vital information critical for growing your business?
How many business opportunities do you miss because of your chaos?
Cross more off your personal to-do list. You know you want to.
When you actually stop and think about all the things you do on a daily basis, all the things begin to add up – and quick.
So it’s no small wonder that any lists rattling off all the things a personal assistant can do are seemingly endless.
And we’re all probably acutely aware of all of the administrative tasks we handle every day that can be outsourced to a virtual assistant – answering phones, replying to email, managing your calendar et al – but there are also so many other ways a BELAY VA can make your life easier. More organized. Better.
If you’re dubious, we probably know what you’re thinking: ‘I don’t have 10 hours of work per week to give someone.’
And it’s true – most tasks may only take only a few minutes.
But when you add several dozen of them up, they consume hours. Maybe even days.
So you resign yourself to drowning in an endless avalanche of adulting.
Our day-to-day is often a stream – more of a raging whitewater river if we’re being completely honest with ourselves – of random, messy, eclectic and totally normal personal tasks.
But you know the intense, full-body rush you feel when you cross something off your to-do list? A BELAY assistant can give you the ability to start crossing more of these items off your lists, one giddy pen stroke after another.
So make your lists, check them twice … and then hand them over to your BELAY assistant.
How can a personal assistant help?
Got a question? No problem.
Our team is here to help!
VA can handle your calendar, appointments, manage your email accounts, post social media, proof/edit documents, book travel arrangements, coordinate between clients and/or team members, and coordinate almost anything you need!
No, you will have one dedicated VA that we match you with based on your needs, industry, personality and working style.
Your Client Success Consultant will be there to help. You’ll work together to find a new match and keep your downtime to a minimum. If there are any minor hiccups, we will address them and find a solution.
That will be between you and your new assistant. If there are times you know are slower, then let your VA know that would be a good time for time off. Commit to over-communicate with each other so work can be done ahead of time and productivity doesn’t lapse.
All our contractors sign a Confidentiality Agreement to protect you and your business. If you would like any additional contracts, then we can discuss that. We highly recommend strong passwords and using a password manager to keep your accounts secure.
We get it. Handing over the decision on who will work with you is a tough one. But what we also know after helping people just like you is that you don’t have time to devote to screening and setting up interviews. We have a customized system to match you to someone equipped to handle everything you need accomplished.
It depends on how many hours you are contracted for. You can have specific time periods where your phone can be forwarded to your assistant. If your Virtual Assistant isn’t able to answer in that moment, they can return calls and triage those messages. If you need a full-time receptionist, we recommend Ruby Receptionist – we use them and love them.
Yes, they are there to support your communication to your team and clients.
No, our assistants are available Monday-Friday, 9 AM – 5 PM.
You know your product best! They can relieve other admin and support tasks that will allow you added time for those calls.
Yes, you will be assigned a Client Success Consultant who will walk through onboarding with you and who is there as a coach and resource for your entire time here at BELAY.
The VA can “ebb and flow” your hours throughout the month. We just shoot to come in at the contracted amount at the end of the month. If they go over, we simply bill the extra hours, but they do not roll over to the next month. We track and report on those during onboarding to make sure you are at a good amount of hours for the work needed.
You’re right – it happens! We know it’s a possibility that you’ll get to the place in your business where you want to expand your W-2 team, and we love nothing more than knowing we helped you find your first (or second or fifth) hire. Talk to your Solutions Consultant about the details.
