Hiring Virtual Assistants: Accomplishing More Without Working More Hours

As a business leader, you dream of the day when your company has a consistent stream of clients who are eager to work with you. However, as this comes into fruition and your business grows, the workload also increases and you can easily become bogged down by mundane tasks.

Bold plans and visions aside, if your business is growing too fast and you don’t have the right strategy in place, the outcome is often the same: FAILURE. In fact, it can be as disastrous as a business that never had a chance to take off.

Here’s the thing, regardless of how many extra hours and personal sacrifice you put in your business, you just won’t get everything done on your own. With this, you only have two choices: 1) adapt and delegate the tasks, or 2) let your company burn down as a one-man show.

Building a Scalable Business Through Outsourcing

A scalable business is something that all entrepreneurs aspire to achieve—but what does this exactly mean?

Simply put, scalability means the ability of a business to respond to increasing demand or workload, and its potential to multiply revenue with just a minimal incremental increase in its costs. One of the most effective tools to scale your business is outsourcing, wherein a company hires a third party to accomplish a specific function or activity.

When the need arises, outsourcing allows businesses to expand their capacity easily without requiring them to formally hire new staff, invest in more office equipment, and lease a wider space—in short, without increasing the fixed overhead costs.

So how can companies leverage outsourcing to establish a scalable business?

Here’s the Simplest Way to Scale Your Business Without Hiring

Are you ready to scale your business?

Many entrepreneurs struggle to grow their business because they focus on the wrong things. Instead of working ON their business, they work IN it.

Sure, there are tasks that need to get done inside your business, and you want to ensure that everything’s done right down to the tiniest detail. But here’s the rub, if you tend to focus your energy on these non-core time-consuming tasks rather than performing the crucial activities which can propel your business to the next level, your business is doomed to stagnate. FOREVER.

Grasp the importance of this idea, and determine the key areas where you need to maintain your laser focus. Once you’ve done this, the next logical move is to get someone who can accomplish the other tasks that you’ve decided to remove from your plate.

However, if you are not yet ready to hire a full-time employee or are simply uninterested in doing so because of the “headaches” that come with it (e.g., recruitment process, payroll, providing benefits, training, workplace and equipment, and supervision/ quality control), there is another way to scale your business—it’s through outsourcing.
