What To Outsource To A Virtual Assistant

One of the pitfalls many entrepreneurs fall into is wearing too many hats. We’ve all been there.  At some point you find yourself caught in the endless juggling act, trying to solve ALL the problems. Overwhelming yourself with thousands of tasks is not going to help you achieve more results. The more things you’re trying to do, the more trapped you are. More and more CEOs are trying to accomplish all the roles in their business with this resulting in them being the business.

Sounds all too familiar? Then it’s time to delegate.

How To Get Started

Somehow one of the biggest challenges is getting started. Not all entrepreneurs know what exactly to outsource to the assistant. Evaluate your priorities first. To determine what things you’re going to delegate, make a list with three columns:

  1. Things you hate doing every single day.
  2. Things you can’t do yourself.
  3. Things you shouldn’t be doing.

And write down all of those things. When you’re done, you know exactly where to begin with.

Let go of all the misconceptions that nobody else will do it better than you. It is possible to find the right person with the necessary set of skills. It may not be from the very first time, but the right person is out there. And our job is to find him/her.
