Do you hardly have time to go out with your family on weekends because of your job? Are you putting in extra hours at work every single day? Does your job take away the time you should be using to hit the gym or whatever activities you want to do? Most workers, even business owners, struggle to juggle the demands of their job and other aspects of their lives. They work so hard that they almost forget the things that matter the most - like their families. Working hard is essential in achieving success, but if you spend your whole life just working, it will not make you happy in the long run. What will success mean to you if you’ve lost the family that should’ve been proud of you? What does your promotion mean when you get sick because of working too much? Who will you celebrate with when you don’t have friends anymore because you’ve lost contact with them while you were busy reaching your goal? I’m not telling you not to do whatever it takes to achieve your dreams. But know that work-life balance is essential in becoming truly happy. All the recognition and money in the world does not mean anything when you have no one to share it with. Think about why you want to be that successful. Is it for your family? Do you think they’d want all the luxurious things more than having time to spend with you? There’s nothing more valuable than being around the most important people in your life, making memories with them and letting them feel that you have their back whenever they need you. Not being able to balance work and other important aspects of your life can hurt your relationships, health and happiness and no one wants that to happen.

You might have a demanding boss, but he or she will not be abusive if you learn how to say no to his/her every order. Do not take it when they demand you to do something on a Sunday. Make them realize that you have a family who wants to spend time with you on that day. If your shift is for eight hours, finish your job in eight hours. Leave work at work. Do not open your emails during your day off; you don’t have to talk to anyone work-related when it’s supposed to be your free time. I understand that when you are the boss, there’s a lot of stuff you need to do around the clock. If you are a solo entrepreneur, you are expected to take care of everything. But should you? You can be hands-on with your business but delegate some of the lighter loads to somebody else. Working smart is better than working hard. You do not have to do everything alone. By hiring a personal assistant, you can have extra time to spend with your family or go to the gym or anywhere you want. Say, you are a real estate agent, right? You meet people every day. You also have to send tons of emails and make phone calls daily. You have a website you need to maintain and social media accounts to update. Does it have to be you who needs to do all those tasks? If you take care of them alone, do you think you could still make time for yourself and your family? Will, it not stress you out thinking you have to do a lot in a day when there are only 24 hours? Will you not be more effective if there’s someone else around to carry other loads for you?

If you haven’t thought of hiring a personal assistant, it is high time to consider getting a personal assistant. If you feel like your job is getting in the way of taking care of other important stuff in your life, you better start thinking of options that could change the situation. Your job is essential, as are your family and health. Hiring a personal assistant can help you achieve a work-life balance:
  1. You get more time for your personal life.

The most important advantage you could get from hiring a personal assistant is more time for your personal life. Imagine freeing some of your workloads and giving them to someone else. The time you should’ve spent working on those tasks can be used to spend for your family and relaxation. You just have to ensure that you hire a competent assistant that meets the skill sets you are looking for.

  1. Keeps you on schedule

An assistant could help you keep track of your day-to-day schedule. They can organize your calendar and remind you of necessary appointments every day. If you have a lot on your mind, you will miss an appointment or two in a day. But if you have someone to make sure you meet your schedule, there will not be a missed appointment.

  1. Stress reduction

You worry less if you have a lighter load on your shoulders. You wouldn’t have to worry about getting everything done. You will no longer be overwhelmed by a lot of stuff.

  1. You have someone to exchange ideas with

Depending on your assistant’s experience and skills, you could be open to their ideas and suggestions on some matters in your business or job. They might be able to help you in coming up with new strategies for your business. You could take advantage of their unique skills and use them to become a more effective entrepreneur. 

  1. You can be more productive

It’s like having two of you. You can get more things done while you can maintain a work-life balance. You are a sales agent, and you hire a personal assistant. If you have another person to make phone calls, you have a greater chance of driving sales.

  1. You can make more money

Though some might think that getting an assistant is an extra cost, most business owners say they make more money by hiring a personal assistant. Because they are more productive when they have an assistant, they can focus more on the most important parts of their business that generate revenue. They don’t fret about small stuff because someone else is doing it for them.

  1. Improve management skills

If you haven’t had any employees, this is your opportunity to exercise your leadership and management skills. You’ll learn to delegate tasks, train new skills and communicate effectively.

If you haven’t thought of hiring a personal assistant, it is high time to consider getting a personal assistant. If you feel like your job is getting in the way of taking care of other important stuff in your life, you better start thinking of options that could change the situation. Your job is essential, as are your family and health. Hiring a personal assistant can help you achieve a work-life balance:
  1. They work on your schedule.

Virtual assistants are very reliable that they are there whenever you need them. You do not have to pay them for eight hours every day. You will only pay them for hours you need them to work for you.

  1. More cost-effective

Aside from paying virtual assistants just for hours, they perform a task. You could also save money because they don’t need an office space. You don’t need to buy a desk and a computer for them. They already have the tools and resources. You also don’t have to pay their taxes and benefits.

  1. Available 24/7

There are a lot of virtual assistants available for you in a day. So if your assistant yesterday is not available today, the company can provide you with another VA who has the needed skill sets for your task.

  1. You get the right person to perform the job

If you only have one assistant, you can’t expect him/her to know everything. But, if you hire a VA company, they can get you a person that matches the skill sets needed for a specific task. For example, you need a graphic artist for one task and a telemarketer for another. They can be two different people because it’s rare to find one person that can do both.

  1. They can be temporary

If you already have staff and you just need to fill one position for a certain period, you could hire a VA and keep them until you have someone permanent for the position.

Keep in mind that virtual assistants are self-employed experts. They are essential to your business growth, and you can maintain a work-life balance through their help. You just need to hire the right company and get the right person or set of people for the tasks you need to delegate. You do not have to be a martyr by doing everything alone. If there are services out there that could allow you to free some of your workloads, why not take advantage of them and see how they could genuinely change your life?

BUCKET SYSTEM vs. Employee

Sure, you could hire an ordinary employee to help grow your business, but do you really have enough small tasks to fill up 40 hours per week or even 20 hours per week every single week? If not, that employee will be spending downtime on your dime.

TaskBullet has eliminated this problem with what we call the BUCKET SYSTEM. Your remote employee will clock in when you need them and clock out when you don't. (Learn how it works here) With a remote personal assistant, you pay for the hours you need and nothing more. You'll save money on not having to provide employee benefits, office space, office supplies (computer, desk, coffee, etc.); oh, and did I mention downtime?

Your remote personal assistant will come with his or her own supplies, a strong education (TaskBullet virtual assistants have university degrees), and deep professional background. When you hire a virtual sales assistant from TaskBullet, you are also assigned a project manager to ensure that everything runs smoothly. What are you waiting for? Hire a remote personal assistant today and get your time back!
