Virtual Assistant

Is it time for a virtual assistant?

We’ve all heard the advice that if you want to grow your business you need to focus on the things you do well and delegate the rest to others. When it comes to putting that advice into practice, many of us find excuses.

We always hear people complaining that they just don’t have the time to do things.
“ I don’t have time to get in shape or go to the gym” or “GAWD, I need to get this report done but I still have to call Bell TV to hook me up with the UFC fight tonight!”
We could all probably make better use of our time to work on the important things in our lives if only we had the “time”.

Ask yourself the following 3 questions:

  1. Am I procrastinating on this task? If I’m procrastinating, I usually don’t have the resources, knowledge, or skill proficiency to do it well. – Outsource to someone who does.
  2. Do I dread this task? If I view the task with dread rather than excitement, this signals that I don’t actually want to do it. This means that I won’t bring the level of passion and ownership that I would if I were exciting to me. Outsource it!
  3. Am I AMAZING at this task? If the answer is “no,” chances are good that you can find an expert to help you out.

If you think you could use more time in your day doing things you care about instead of dealing with menial tasks, you should look into hiring a virtual assistant.
Balance InStyle has been in business 8 years. We’ve recently expanded our service offerings to include a virtual line. You can learn more about this new line called Balance by Balance InStyle here. (More free time can really change your life.)

Our newest offering is virtual, so between the hours of 9-5 you have local assistants at your disposal who you can delegate time consuming tasks to, like what Tim Ferriss recommends in his book “The 4-Hour Work Week”.

Appointments, Reservations, and Logistics Coordination

Imagine what would happen if you never had to make calls around for dinner reservations, hair appointments, car services, doctors’ appointments, price-shopping, Fedex re-delivery, meeting calendar coordinations, travel plans or chasing down your own accounts receivables?

Our approach (and recommendation) is this – every time you have a task that doesn’t need your personal attention, outsource it to your VPA.

If what you ask is outside the scope of what we do ( we haven’t seen that in 8 years ), we can connect you with someone who can help through our preferred partner network. Our success comes from running a Concierge company for the past 8 years. So we’ve seen it all.

Putting Together Furniture, Dropping Off Dry Cleaning, Groceries, Home Renovations and Other In-Person Tasks

What about those other time consuming errands that can’t be done virtually? We got you covered with our on the ground Concierge Services. Name the task, and consider it done!
So if you have trouble getting to your important work because you are always busy dealing with the urgent, why not get in touch and let’s see how we can help!
