Business owners have a lot on their plate. It takes a lot of time to run a business, attract clients, and make money all at once. Add to that time for family, cooking, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping and all the other tasks of everyday life. In all of that, where is there time for you, just you?
To effectively run your business and spend time with your family, you need to be in the best shape possible mentally, physically and emotionally. If there is no time in your day to take care of you, you become run down, stressed, and even sick. Taking care of you is essential to running a business and taking care of family. Your business and family life can only benefit if you are feeling your best.
To feel your best, you need to schedule time for self-care. It can be a manicure and pedicure, a massage, a walk on the beach, working out at the local fitness center, or just thirty minutes of total quiet time away from everyone and everything.
One way to make sure you have time for you is to hire a Virtual Assistant. You can delegate many of the daily business tasks to a Virtual Assistant to give you time for the really important things that only you can do. It also gives you time for self-care.
Once you decide to hire a Virtual Assistant to take over some of your work, you need to schedule time on your calendar every month that is just for taking care of you. Make appointments at the spa, set up lunch dates with friends and/or family, and most importantly, be sure you schedule your annual checkup. It is imperative to stay up with your healthcare provider to be sure you are healthy, too.
If you have never hired a VA before, try these tips for hiring a virtual assistant. Once you’ve hired your new team member(s), take time for you. Enjoy time off to replenish your heart, mind and soul on a regular basis worry free. Your Virtual Assistant will take care of your business while you take care of you. Your success depends on it.© Copyright 2011 Sophie Zollmann
