Time does not equal money.


Time is more valuable than money because if you lose money, you can always earn more later in your life. But with time, it doesn't work that way.


Unless you know of a way to CRISPR immortal jellyfish genes into our bodies, we can't turn back time and biologically de-age.


Thankfully, we have virtual assistants (AIs such as Siri and Alexa don't count) willing to help out with our businesses.


So if you would like to:

  • Earn more money for your business

  • Have more free time in your life doing other activities or less important things such as hobbies

  • Be more emotionally stress-free

Let's get right into it.



 

The 11 Top Reasons You Need a Virtual Assistant:



1. Increasing Your Time Efficiency



By outsourcing your non-essential work to your virtual assistant, you'll:

  • Reduce the number of work hours doing repetitive and mundane tasks

  • Allow yourself to shift your focus to essential work.

Virtual assistants can handle administrative tasks such as:

  • Writing and sending emails and newsletters

  • Handling customers when it comes to live chat, phone calls, and/or emails

  • Research

  • Scheduling meetings for you

  • Data entry


Such examples are Microsoft and Verizon.


They outsource their work to numerous virtual assistants in foreign countries, which act as their support team to deal with difficulties people encounter every day.


Meanwhile, the executives focus on improving and creating new products and services.

The amount of time you need in your life will be the number one factor that should determine whether or not you should hire a virtual assistant.


This is especially true if you're in a situation where you want to build a business on the side, but you're busy working at your current job or focused on studying in school, as I did.


Then hiring a virtual assistant is highly recommended if you're in those scenarios.

(I majored in Biological Sciences (intense grasp of concepts then memorization) and not business related. Don't worry if you don't have experience hiring people because I was also the same.)



2. Ability to Work With Them Anywhere


Whether you're at home, work, school, coffee shop, or the airport, all you need is an internet connection and your phone (or your laptop) to check how your virtual assistant is doing.


Since they're working in their personal space and time, the only things you need to be responsible for are seeing if they're working, their mental health, and their payment.


Regarding payment, that brings me to my next point.



3. Massively Reducing Costs and Expenses


Since virtual assistants are not office employees, you only need to pay them for the amount of work that they do.

You won't have to worry about paying a typical hourly wage. It also includes breaks, expenses such as office space and equipment, and employee benefits, which include healthcare* or any additional taxes.
