You are a very busy entrepreneur, with business booming, and enough clients to actually start making some good income…but…you are feeling:
1. Overwhelmed… by the amount of work that needs to keep your business going
2. Frustrated… because you have to do work that you really hate doing
3. Unproductive…because you are not the best at some of these tasks, so doing them is taking too long to complete
These are all signs that it’s time to stop and re-assess your workload. It’s time to allow yourself to focus on the work you do best and hire somebody to do the rest. Being the jack-of-all-trades can initially seem like a necessity when you’re an entrepreneur, but it really doesn’t have to be that way!
In reality, you cannot create a highly successful business by yourself. Get help where you need it the most! Focus on what really creates the revenue and what you are passionate about.
So, how much is your time worth?
Let’s say you are a lawyer, billing out $125 per hour (and that’s on the low end). Let’s say you spend 10 hours per week working on social media updates, bookkeeping, email campaigns, etc. If you paid yourself your hourly rate, it would be $1,250 per week…that’s $5,000 per month.
These same tasks can be done by a highly experienced virtual assistant for much less money. For example, my rate is $35 per hour. So you would pay me $350 per week…that’s $1,400 per month…which is saving you $3,600 per month. And, you don’t have the stress or headache trying to accomplish it all.
If you took those 10 hours per week (40 hours per month) and focused solely on income producing activities (such as talking with prospective clients or networking with partners) how much money could you make in those 40 hours per month? Would you be able to make that $1,400 per month to pay your assistant? Sure you would! In fact, I’m certain you would be able to grow your business exponentially!!
The math makes sense. So, what is stopping you? If you’re not moving forward on this you must ask yourself — what’s holding you back?
