8 Amazing Things a Personal Assistant Does for You
October 19, 2016
Hiring a personal assistant
- Gives you the opportunity to focus on the big tasks for your business
We get it. Owning a business comes with a lot of little tedious tasks that you simply don’t have time for or are undesirable to you. No one starts a business to file new hire reports or manage the website. Hiring a personal assistant to focus on accomplishing the little tasks can free up your time to focus on the bigger tasks, that are likely the reason you started your business in the first place.
- Helps develop your management skills
If you are a newer business owner or have never had the opportunity to manage another person, hiring a personal assistant will help hone your management skills. These skills will undoubtedly become necessary as your business grows and you need to manage more employees.
- Gives you more flexibility
Hiring an assistant equals saving you time. By delegating tasks to your personal assistant, you free up your personal schedule and gain flexibility in your day to day business operations. A personal assistant can “hold down the fort” so you can enjoy a much needed vacation or find a better work/life balance.
- Gives you a trusted opinion
If you own a small business, you may not have anyone to bounce ideas off of or proofread a proposal. A trusted personal assistant can help you sort out good ideas from bad ones and give you a second set of eyes to read over your copy.
- Provides you with stress relief
Owning a business comes with a lot of responsibilities. These responsibilities often cost you precious time that needs to be spent elsewhere. By hiring a personal assistant, you gain a second set of hands that can help take some of the work off your plate and help you feel less of the stress that comes with owning your own business.
- Cross items off your to-do list
If your to-do list is a mile long and never seems to get shorter, it’s time to hire a personal assistant. We get it, you have a million things that need to get done but only time to do about half of them. Personal assistants are really awesome at managing to-do lists and making sure everything on them gets done.
- Makes you more productive
As mentioned previously, hiring a personal assistant to take care of the little but must get done tasks will allow you to focus on your strengths and grow your business. If you aren’t proficient in Excel, don’t waste time trying to figure it out. Hire someone who knows the ins and outs of the program, so you can forget about it and focus on making deals.
- Makes more time for you
Once your to-do list is under control and your assistant is in the swing of things, you will find that you have more time to focus on you. Perhaps it’s leaving the office a few hours earlier or no longer working from home on the weekends. Gain more time for you by allowing someone else to help you!
