Three (3) Things You Need To Know Before Your Buy

Have you ever encountered this scenario, you have made the decision to get help in your business and you have hired a Virtual Assistant only to realize you do not know what tasks to give that VA and you further realize that you are not much further ahead than where you were before you hired the VA? 
If this has happened to you, did you end up wasting valuable time and money trying to immerse your VA into your business by giving simple “busy” tasks until you decided what you actually need help with? 
What if you were able to have a full plan and workflow to help onboard your Virtual Assistant or other potential team members and get real tasks completed to push your objectives and goals forward?  Here are 3 things you need to know before you buy.

  1. Make a plan. Your Virtual Assistant is not able to figure out your needs unless you have determined what your needs are and have communicated those to you. Taking advantage of a strategy session with a coach or an administrative consultant, like Efficient Business Solutions, will help you develop a clear and concise plan with workflow of everything you need to fully communicate your needs to your VA or other outsourced help. This will ultimately save you money through reduced training time and focusing on the right tasks and projects.

  2. You have the right, and responsibility, to be choosy.  You are not simply looking for a warm body to perform some menial tasks.  To get the best value, you must do your “due diligence” and find the right Virtual Assistant for you and your business.  From your newly developed concise plan you will be able to look for very specific skills and qualities in a VA to support you and your business. 

  3. Your VA is your business partner. Now that you’ve selected the right fit for you and your business, you will be able to build a trust with them and form a true partnership.  You be able to  work through ideas and share your vision and goals, and their support will help you achieve them. Remember, you are an expert in your field and they are an expert in theirs, so treating the relationship you have with them as a partnership will help strengthen your business goals and outcomes. 
You know your business because you built your business from the ground up. Scaling your business takes time and many processes and systems must be in place and documented. You must be clear on your vision and what you want any assistant to do for you, regardless of hiring a VA or an employee. 
Have you ever considered systemizing your business to be able to build a strong team that does not require a lot more of your time?  If not, then you will want to hire Efficient Business Solutions to help you create your customized plan with you. What you will walk away with is clear and concise plan of action with a simple workflow for your team, or ours, to hit the ground running with. We understand your struggles because we are business owners just like you.
