Outsourcing is an investment but it’s an investment that buys you your time back

How much will freedom cost?

Is it Friday already? Have you reached the end of another week and barely caught up on Monday’s emails? Do you have time to take on more clients, market your business and provide the service you’re advertising, as well as
spend time on the administrative tasks which keep the business running? It may feel like too much to handle but you’re not alone: in fact, research conducted in 2016 for The Alternative Board’s Business Pulse Survey shows that 33% of entrepreneurs state that dealing with email is the biggest time strain on their business. Closely followed by 24% saying the second biggest time waster for them is working on administrative tasks.

Consider the aspects of your work that you love, what is your ideal day, or week at work? Does it include organising emails, generating invoices, updating blogs and social media….processing expenses? I doubt it. You are an expert
in your field, and guess what, a Virtual Assistant is an expert in theirs. Why spend so much of your time on repetitive administrative tasks when you could be working on something that only you have the talent for.

There are so many ways you can increase efficiency, you just need to take a little time to set things up. You could use social media forums, online tools, apps or even join a course!

Keep your goals in focus and work towards every hour being a billable one! Time is money after all. A 2016 survey by the UK Federation of Small Businesses found that the average small business owner spends per month an
average of only 8 hours and 50 minutes working on new business development. Putting it into context that’s around one-quarter of the huge 33 hours plus they spend on administration!
