How Hiring a Virtual Assistant Can Save You Money

If you’re a small-business owner, chances are really good that you spend some time each day answering emails and doing related work. Not only is it onerous, but it’s also not very productive. It’s even more expensive than outsourcing certain tasks to an assistant. To save on money and keep on growing your business, consider hiring an assistant so you can focus more of your time on actually making money rather than maintaining the business operation itself. After all, who doesn’t want that?

Hiring an assistant may be one of the best decisions your business can make for its future success!

These days, it’s not uncommon for people to hire Virtual Assistants to do their shopping, manage their email and social media communications, or even keep track of their schedules.

How To Stay Motivated During Lockdown

I know what to do, i’m just not doing it.

We all have goals. We all have a task list or “deliverables” we need to complete, but we find other tasks that keep us busy and take up our time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The question is, “How do I get motivated enough to get these tasks done when I simply don’t want to do them?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Did your mum ever say this? “You don’t have to want to do it; you just have to do it.” I hated it, but now I find myself re-telling my toddler on the daily. Go figure.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you ever find yourself feeling a lack of motivation, here are some tips to get back in the motivation zone!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Write down your “why”—and remind yourself why your WHY is so important to you. (Your “Why” is your unique reason you are running your business, doing your job, doing all the things you do. Is it to support your family, set yourself up for retirement, buy that dream car? Whatever it is, write it down and post it somewhere visible. Each action step in the direction of your goals also aligns with your WHY.)

2. Ask yourself, “How do I want to feel at the end of the day?” Most entrepreneurs and business professionals like the feeling of accomplishment. Look at the remainder of your day and think about what will make you feel the most productive and happy. Not just “busy work” – but action steps that get you closer to your goal on a weekly, daily and even hourly basis.

3. Get the MOST IMPORTANT task completed first. By human nature, we sometimes want to take care of the easiest (and sometimes LEAST important) things first. Look at your task list. Think about the thing you LEAST want to do—and it is likely the same task that will produce the MOST results. DO THAT TASK FIRST. You will feel accomplished and more on top of everything throughout your day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
