We’ve all had busy times when we’ve thought “I really need an assistant to help me with this!”. Then the next thought is “I can’t afford it”, or “I don’t have the time to familiarise someone”. Then you just keep doing the work yourself.
Here are a few reasons why it makes sense to delegate to an assistant:

  1. Time is money: using your time for revenue producing work makes financial sense
  2. Quality: giving your clients your best output, means focussing on what’s important
  3. Your passion: work that inspires and motivates you is the most rewarding

Here are 40 ways an assistant can help you free up time to generate more revenue:

  1. Register you for networking events for the year and add to your calendar
  2. Send email responses to common client inquiries
  3. Unsubscribe you from annoying spam
  4. Update your bio on your Linked in page
  5. Arrange your interstate travel
  6. Help declutter your email inbox, to achieve “Inbox Zero”
