Juggling work and home life can be challenging and never more so than during these unprecedented times.
Your staff, including those who make sure your marketing, invoicing, and all those small but vital jobs get done on time, may also be away from work at this time. You may feel at these times that you can cover jobs such as customer service, secretarial and administrative work yourself while staff are away from their normal work – after all, it could only be for a few weeks, and you were doing all these things yourself in the early days of the business!
But these weeks can feel like a long time.
It’s easy for the day-to-day tasks to pile up without realising it. If you’re doing the marketing and the invoicing, who is online networking and developing the business?
The same goes for sole traders who, as we all know, do the work of all departments in a business. You need a break too, but your business doesn’t stop when you takes some downtime.
There is an easier way to get through these times without ending up knee deep in, or coming back to, a mountain of customer enquiries and marketing.
Outsourcing this type of work to a virtual PA means you can carry on working in your business rather than on it.
Your business doesn’t need to grind to a halt but will continue to run as you need it to. You may not realise it but hiring a virtual PA for ad-hoc or even project work can be more cost effective than hiring a temp or staff on a fixed term contract. An external face and a breath of fresh air to bring new ideas and best practice to your team. Your virtual PA can work remotely for you, whilst getting the work done effectively.
Trying something new can be a bit scary but you’ve done the scariest bit in starting your business. Now it’s growing, make sure it continues to thrive when you and your staff take a break by outsourcing when you need to and getting the support you and your business needs. After all, everyone needs a break now and again!
