Let’s Talk MONEY

Let’s Get Down to the Nitty Gritty

Your company will more than likely also pay benefits for this person. Depending on the where we live, for instance in the U.S., Canada or elsewhere, there may be hiring guidelines set up by the governing bodies. These can include the IRS and State Regulations, just to name a few in the United States.

Employee Benefits:

  • Health Insurance Options
  • Vacation Pay
  • Workman’s Compensation
  • Social Security Tax (Employer’s half)
  • Portion of a 401k (or an option for a Retirement account)
  • Short Term Disability Insurance Options
  • Long Term Disability Insurance Options

These are just a few of the benefits that a business will customarily provide when you hire an employee. Remember you will also have a ton of paperwork with this, as well as, reporting, withholding & remitting taxes for your employees.

#3 Reason — TIME: Our most precious resource

In Contrast, a Virtual Professional comes to the table ready to work.

Giving You Time:

After the initial ‘getting to know you’ phase you should begin to notice a difference in your time and a new sense of freedom. As a business owner, myself, I know how easy it is to get caught up working IN the business.

Yet, All experts agree that real growth and success only comes when You (the business owner/CEO) are able to go from working IN the business to working ON the business.

“There is a bridge every entrepreneur must cross in order to grow a business beyond a certain point, a point where they must transition from “doing” to “leading.” It means stepping back from day-to-day operations and slipping into the role of overseer. “ — Ray Silverstein of Entrepreneur

A huge benefit of hiring a Virtual Assistant/Professional who specializes in a particular service that has been weighing you down (really it is holding you back), is that they free up your time!

I can honestly say, from personal experience, that VAs truly enjoy helping businesses like yours’ grow. Happiness also comes at your successful & when the Virtual Professional can free up your time, by taking more of the work load and handing it over to someone else or a company like mine even (as we are small Boutique Digital Marketing Company + Custom Virtual Business Services).

The obvious results are that outsourcing is freeing up your time to do what you do best.
