Overwhelmed? Here Are 30 Tasks a Virtual Assistant Can Do For You
There’s a recurring theme when I talk to horse business owners. They are BUSY! So busy, in fact, that they don’t have time to do key things they know they need to do to grow their business, like updating a stale website, finishing a new website, or even finishing and launching a profit-generating subscription platform!
It’s super easy for small business owners to get overwhelmed. That’s why I’m so excited to introduce another service to the equine and ag-related industry. Runaway Writing offers Virtual Assistant services to help relieve your overwhelm!
If you’re not familiar with Virtual Assistant services, let me fill you in. A VA works for you on a contract basis, for a set number of hours per week. The relationship can be as long-term or short-term as needed, without the overhead of hiring another employee.
Working remotely, a VA can’t pick up your dry cleaning or get your car washed. But he or she can tackle your business’s administrative tasks. You know, the frustrating ones that take up precious chunks of your time, but don’t contribute directly to revenue and sales. Handing these tasks off to a VA frees you up to focus on the more strategic and business-critical things that enable your company to flourish.
Which tasks could you hand over to a VA? I thought you might ask, so I’ve compiled a list!
But I’m sure I haven’t thought of everything, so PLEASE let me know if there’s something missing!
