As a small business owner or entrepreneur you likely eat-sleep-breathe your organization, and have mastered every area of your organization. As reported in an article by the CBC "31 per cent of self-employed Canadians reported working more than 50 hours per week." Eventually there just isn't enough time to do it all, and important things begin to slip through the cracks or get put on the back-burner indefinitely. Attempting to save costs in doing it all yourself begins to cost your organization time and money.
Your goods and services are important, and your company needs your direction, expertise and guidance. When we reach a level of maximum production output, we increase our physical and human capital to match the demand. The same standard applies to your administrative process. The addition of an Executive Assistant to your team is a value-added service to your business, alleviating time spent on administration that can be used in more valuable areas of your business operations. Neglecting to maintain well managed administration can lead to:
1. Messy record keeping and time-consuming reporting;
2. Decreased or limited revenue;
3. Stagnation of growth and development.
An Executive Assistant offers you the power to do more with your day by managing the background details required to reach your goals and maintain operations. They exist to make your job easier, by handling the time consuming tasks required to operate your business effectively. Further, an Executive Assistant increases the efficiency of your administration as they process backlogs and create well organized administrative processes moving forward. Outsourcing and delegating tasks to an Executive Assistant is an investment into your organization, and valuable asset to yourself.
If you have reached a point in your business cycle where you have more work to do than you have time, give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done- and get yourself an Executive Assistant today.
