Lost an Hour but gained a Day.

Time is precious!  We all know how quickly it can pass us by and if we don’t make the most of the time we have available to us, we’re not going to benefit from the many rewards that are out there if we use it efficiently.

Time Management

This of course is the case in everyday life, but in particular we want to address just how time can have an impact on us as a business owner.

If you had a choice each day that for every hour that you worked you either made an income (so the time spent is to gain a monetary value) OR you spent time on the tasks that run your business (again, it relates to creating a monetary value, but not directly), what would you choose?

Time spent working on the back office tasks to your business are essential, and in the long run will of course bring in money to the business. Your marketing tasks and social media contribution all factor into the success of your development as it is helping you to invite potential clients or customers towards enquiring about your services or product. However, by spending time on these areas, you’re not focusing on what you do best… performing your specific service or production of your product. You are not using the time as ‘chargeable’ time.

There is away around it though, and for many businesses the word Virtual Assistant is not so alien these days. There used to be a look of confusion when the term VA started making the rounds, especially here in the UK. Today it’s not so uncommon for people to be aware of what we Virtual Assistants do. Remote Associates are proud to have been established for over 3 years now, so we have seen a completely different shift in awareness of the VA industry.

If you are still not sure, or are wondering how working with a Virtual Assistant could help you to use your time more effectively, then get in touch with us here.  It would be great to discuss your needs and we are almost certain that we will be able to achieve a resolution that will make you feel as if you’ve lost an hour but gained a day.
