Does This Sound Like You? Then It Might Be Time To Hire A Virtual Assistant

Billionaires, architects, gallery directors — over the past 16 years, I’ve worked for them all.

After hustling in London for some truly inspirational CEOs, I launched Selina & Co. in 2016, and my boutique virtual agency helps coaches, consultants and entrepreneurs to free up their time so they can focus on what matters most.

My amazing career has taught me how the mind of a business owner works. I know exactly what they need, how they need it, and by when, so that they can bring their ultimate vision to life.

And I can also spot someone who’s in desperate need of help from a mile off.

So… if any of these phrases sound like you — take it from me that it might be time to start thinking about hiring an elite virtual assistant.

“I feel like I have to be everything to everyone.”

Also known as:

  • “I’m dropping all the balls.”

If it feels like you’ve got too much on your plate — you probably have.

And that’s ok. You’re only human!

But do you think Elon Musk forces himself to write all of his social media updates and learn about the latest Instagram hashtag strategy?

Did Steve Jobs used to leave innovation until 6pm on a Friday evening because he had too much admin to do during the week?

Does Richard Branson spend so long managing his diary and battling through his inbox that he has no time at all left for strategy?

… Didn’t think so.

Time to establish the tasks that only you can do and let the experts handle the rest.

“I want to hit my goals — but…”

“… I spend all of my time serving my clients.”

“… The day-to-day just seems to run away with me.”

“… I’m capable of doing this task — so I can’t really justify outsourcing it.”

If you ask me — any time that statement is followed by a ‘BUT’ — you’re standing in your own way. It’s down to you to uncover what beliefs are holding you back from asking for help and stepping into your CEO shoes.

Whether it’s that deep down, you’re not sure if you’re good enough, you’re scared of rejection or you’re terrified of being judged — every moment you spend letting that stand in the way of building the future you’re desperate to create is a moment wasted.

And doing that means you need to make the necessary decisions to make sure you have the headspace you need to focus on the bigger picture.

“I’ve been doing it all on my own for the past 4 years, because…”

“… I’m just not very techy.”

“… I’m super pushed for time and it would take longer to explain it.”

“… I have no idea where to start hiring a VA.”

Let’s call this what it is — procrastination!

It’s natural to feel overwhelmed by the prospect of explaining what you do. Especially if it feels so long-winded that the prospect of taking time out of your busy day to brief it in gives you heart palpitations!

But what if pushing past that fear means that you never have to worry about this task ever again?

What if an elite VA could set up a streamlined system or automation and do this in a quarter of the time it takes you right now?

What does this mean?

If these sound like you, I’ve got good news and bad news…

The bad news is, you’ve most likely been taking the long route to getting everything done in your biz up until this moment.

The good news is — you’re just a phone call away from finding a virtual assistant who will stop you in your tracks and have you thinking: “Did I just clone myself?!”

Book a call with me today and let me show you how we can catapult your business to the next-level success you’ve been dreaming of.
