So last weeks post inspired me. I loved hearing what people disliked doing in their business and how they handled it. The #1 way to handle their "icky tasks" was to outsource them…….which lead me to this post. It seemed to me that almost everyone was using a Virtual Assistant (VA) to help with the things they disliked as well as things that are best left to an assistant. VA's are a great choice for more than just the "having an assistant part" – you pay them on a 1099 as contract labor, instead of a W2, so you avoid payroll taxes making your dollars go further and their employment time longer! Win win for both parties.
Beside the tax benefits, (of course) are the benefits of having more time to concentrate on the things that only you can do in your business that bring in the money! I reached out to my experts to find out how they use their VA's and where they found them so you can bring one on board to help you out this year.
If you are not sure what an assistant can do for you…….make a list of all the things you do each day for a week and then put the things that ONLY you can do in one column and try to outsource the rest!
