It is 2am and you are still sitting at your computer. You can’t remember the last time you went to bed at a decent hour. Somehow this has become the norm for you since you launched your law practice. You are now the Chief of E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G!

Those billables have become a nightmare to reconcile and you still haven’t managed to post an update on your Facebook Business page since last month. It looks like a deserted island.

Dear entrepreneur who is reading this right now,

You don’t have to do it all yourself. Save your sanity and get your early night’s rest by outsourcing some of those tasks you are not an expert in. Virtual assistants are new breeds of “contractors” who can help you lighten the load.

Virtual assistants can help you from your simple data entry tasks to higher skilled professionals who can help you with your website.

If you are unsure, here are some simple tasks to get started to lighten your workload.

  • Transcription – Save time by recording yourself and not having to type. You can send audio recordings to your Virtual Assistant by uploading your recording to a platform like Google Drive or Dropbox and have them transcribe your notes ready for you the next day.
  • Bookkeeping – You can spend your precious time on those billable hours and leave the bookkeeping to a Virtual Assistant.
  • Document formatting – If your Microsoft Office skills are not something you are proud of, there is a Virtual Assistant that can do a much much better job at this for you, sparing you time to work on the strategic aspects of your business.
  • Social media – Keep your facebook business page active with posts by outsourcing this task to a Virtual Assistant who can curate Social media content for you and schedule these in advance for your approval.

You can do more but these are a great place to start! Imagine those 2am nights disappearing soon and being able to focus more on what you enjoy doing rather.

Feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions on how Virtual Assistants can help you in your business.
