Let’s face it – we can all use more time! If you are a business owner, salesperson, or entrepreneur, any time that you can save can be leveraged to increase your revenues or do other value added things for your business. Here are 3 quick and easy tools that can use to leverage your time and create more space for yourself and your business:
Hire a Virtual Assistant
A virtual assistant is a great tool that you can use to leverage your time! Virtual assistants can do anything from managing your schedule and e-mail to bookkeeping to phoning for appointments, market research, and even website development. The great thing about virtual assistants is that you only pay them for the work they do, so they don’t add to significantly to your overhead.
This is a quick and easy way to offload some of your administrative work and open up additional time for yourself. A great place to find a good virtual assistant is the International Virtual Assistants Association (IVAA), which you can find online at www.ivaa.org. They have a bunch of information on virtual assistants, and also have a searchable database to find a virtual assistant to meet your needs.
Outsource Anything for $5
Yes, that’s correct! You can now outsource almost anything for $5. Advertising, marketing, video, graphics, business card design, online marketing and even IT functions can now be outsourced for as little as $5 on websites like www.fiverr.com. This is a great way to get some quick projects done in a cost effective way that will not only save you time, but money as well.
Hire a Rabbit to Run Your Errands
Now you can even hire local people to do routine errands and/or services for you. Need someone to pick up some groceries, drive you to an appointment, or cut your lawn? Simply bring up www.taskrabbit.com, and you’ll be able to find local assistance to meet whatever need you might have. What’s great is they background check all of the “rabbits” so you don’t have to!
If you are looking to leverage your time, tap into the above resources and you’ll be on your way. You’ll probably wonder why you didn’t do this a long time ago!
