Do You Need Another You?


Has your small business grown to so much that 24 hours in a day is just not enough?   Do you want to be more productive and less stressed?   Do you need help digging out from your administrative pile?    If you answered “Yes” to any of these, now may be a good time to consider hiring a Virtual Assistant.

Produce Income.   How many administrative tasks are you taking on in your business that aren’t producing income?  You aren’t making money while you’re scheduling, managing your e-mail or posting on your social media sites.  All would agree that these tasks are important, but they take up precious hours in your day that you could use to grow your business.  Do what you do best and leave the other tasks to a Virtual Assistant.

Improve Time Management.  The reason most people start looking for a virtual assistant is because they are too busy and they know a virtual assistant can save them time.  A good VA will literally add hours to your day.  Use those extra hours to work on obtaining new clients, on sales, or spending more time with your family and friends.

Save Money.  Time is money.  Hiring a Virtual Assistant is cost-effective.   You do not need to provide a VA with room for an onsite office, office equipment or furniture.  You only pay for the time they work for you.  It is the most inexpensive, affordable and productive way to get your tasks done and free up your time.

Reduce Stress.  You feel overwhelmed with your workload.  A virtual assistant will give you peace of mind.  Give a VA the projects and tasks that you dread, that you put off or that you do not like to do.  With a Virtual Assistant you have no worry about insurance and other benefits, payroll processing, labor relations and other stress-inducing problems of running a business.

Think about outsourcing your time-consuming tasks to a Virtual Assistant.  It will help you maintain a good work-life balance, enable you to increase revenue, and save you money and maybe even your sanity!

Summertime and the Living is Easy in Your Yard


What’s going on in your lawn and landscaping in August?  Late summer in Ohio is known for hot, humid days.  As I write this, I am out enjoying a beautiful 80 degree, sunny morning with very low humidity out on my deck.  Rare for late July in my home town.

Blooms:  Many of your perennials like the Black Eyed Susan, Coneflower and Shasta Daisy will self-sow their seed.  If you leave the seed-heads on this will mean more beautiful blooms for next year and will provide food for your birds.  You should draw finches of all sort to Black Eyed Susan and Coneflowers.  A variety of Roses may get a second wind this month.  By late August you can think about planting landscape shrub roses.  Some of your annuals will continue to bloom in August while others will look worn and tired.  Fall will be here before you know…
