25 Things You Can Delegate to a Virtual Assistant
It's all too easy to think "if you want something done right, better do it yourself". This mindset leads to feeling overwhelmed, overworked and burnt out from the burden of juggling everything it takes to run a business. The delicate balance of serving clients, keeping up a social media presence, networking, building an email list, and the never-ending learning in order to become the very best at what you do. The fact of the matter is no matter how hard you try, you simply cannot do it all AND grow as a business (let alone find time to enjoy friends, family and life outside of entrepreneurship).
Sometimes it can be difficult to figure out exactly what you can ask a Virtual Assistant to take off your list. Here are just a few of the services a Virtual PA/VA can take over so you can spend the time on what makes your business:
