Is your career or your business in perfect order, but your personal life not so much?
Have you got a flourishing business but haven’t got time to do your weekly food shop, book your car in for its MOT or organise flights for your holiday? Or have you got a big career and no hours in the day to arrange birthday cards and gifts for loved ones, or sort out your personal expenses? You may even be so busy with family life that you need extra support with buying new household items, booking personal appointments and organising that night out with your friends.
Well luckily, the magic of a VA is that there are many, many ways they can help you and it’s not just the business side of things either. Read on…
Day to Day Life
They say that when your personal life goes up in flames, it usually means you’re on course for a promotion or you’ve just taken your business to a new level. We don’t see why that needs to happen, and with the help of a VA, you can have the best of both worlds.
Running a household alongside a busy life can start to get unmanageable without outside help. So whether it’s organising your weekly shopping, booking a cleaner or a gardener (or even finding them for you), buying household items or organising dry cleaning, a VA can help you to stay on top of the things that you don’t have time for.
If things are going wrong around the house, they can find you a plumber or an electrician or a decorator to come and fix things up. A VA can even help you to order new household appliances, research day to day queries that you might have and even manage your personal calendar!
Whatever you need done, a VA can usually do it for you – from booking appointments like car MOT’s, trips to the dentist or doctors, sorting out your bills and insurance, just send the life admin to your VA.
Birthdays/Important Occasions (and remembering them!)
Often one of the biggest bugbears for our clients is the never-ending list of birthdays, holidays and milestones that need remembering. You may just simply not have time to send birthday cards or thank you gifts, so that’s where a VA can help.
Whether it’s creating a comprehensive calendar of birthdays and holidays so that you never miss a birthday, or designing and sending the cards online, a VA can take this task off your hands.
Be it that bottle of wine to your boss, a thank you hamper to your in-laws or end of term gifts for the school teacher, a VA will make sure nothing goes unnoticed.
Having a VA who can also support you with your social calendar, making restaurant bookings, booking taxis and organising things like hair and beauty appointments, is also a HUGE plus for our clients.
Travelling and Holidays
Organising travel and holidays can also be a nightmare for someone who simply doesn’t have time to plan things.
If you need to travel overnight or for a short break, a VA can help you to research hotels and transport so that your trip runs smoothly. They can make sure restaurant bookings and shops are close by to your hotel or accommodation, and can even research and book accommodation for you, along with train tickets, car parking, taxi’s…whatever you need.
Admin for foreign travel is also often a real headache, so a VA can step in with organising flights, local taxi numbers, restaurant bookings and giving you that much needed heads up in a foreign country!
Building Trust (It's a MUST!)
We know it can be a big leap to trust someone with your personal life and affairs for your home and family. But when you find the perfect VA, you will find that they are discreet, reliable, trustworthy and friendly who will always work around you to make sure you’re comfortable and supported in the way that suits you best.
KM Virtual Office’s flexible, friendly approach works well with our clients who often, after taking that first tentative step into lifestyle management, find themselves never looking back.
Suddenly your personal time can be filled with a bit of R&R and battery re-charging, instead of manically rushing to keep your affairs in order.
So, if you have been thinking you may need a VA but you weren’t sure what they might be able to do for you, then hopefully after reading this you have a little more insight of just how valuable a VA can be.
