If there is one thing I know about entrepreneurs, solopreneurs and business owners is that you have a lot of balls in the air with your biz. But when you are doing invoicing and managing your social media calendar, booking your own flights or doing data entry off the side of your desk, when do you have time to plan your next product or launch?
As David Allen (big wig thinker and author on personal productivity) said, "You can do anything but not everything." Read that again--you can do anything but not everything.
So why are you trying to juggle everything?
The truth is, you don't have to when there is a booming little industry called "virtual assistants." You can pass off some of those balls for them to do, which leaves you focused on the bigger, momentum building things for your business. Besides, who wouldn't want to trade up juggling balls for knives and flaming hoops?!
Perhaps you've been toying with the idea of bringing a VA on-board but are not sure how to begin or where to go.
No worries! I've got your back on this one. I've put together a guide for you to walk you through seven-steps to identify all those balls in the air and figure out which ones to pass off to a VA, in addition to tips and suggestions on getting started and working with one.
And don't worry, the guide is totally free. I don't even ask for your email in exchange. Just use the damn book--no strings attached.
I've been incredibly lucky to have worked and continue to work with amazing clients on some cool projects and ongoing activities in their business. However, I also know some VAs who haven't been quite as lucky. This is why I feel compelled to help business owners understand how best to work with a VA and guide you through the initial stages--basically set you and your VA up for success and get things started.
If you have any other questions or if I can be of further help, please feel free to contact me.
Otherwise, download the guide. Go through the steps and see if you are ready for a VA and learn how to pass over some of those business balls.
Take a look... is your website link in your Facebook profile or cover pic descriptions?
If you answered yes, you can skip this post. But if you answered no or are not quite sure what I mean, keep reading.
When you click your FB profile pic or cover image it becomes full-screen. But is there anything else that shows up? (On mobile it will be an overlay of text and on your desktop view, a right side box).
Here's an example from the gals over at Think Creative Collective.
I went to their Facebook page and clicked their cover. (You'll see my steps at the top of the screenshots below.)
Here's the thing--you can add text and links to both your cover image and profile pic, and you should take advantage of adding a blurb and your website in both. It is another way for users to find out who you are and what you are all about. Or take a page from the gals over at TCC--when you are running a challenge or launching a course, change your cover image description and add the links to your latest launch/challenge landing page.
It's a quick and simple fix! Give it a go.
