VEAs are self-employed experts who partner with clients remotely to deliver a variety of services, most commonly admin and management related services. Their role to take the pressure off and free up time for their clients and help drive business growth, efficiency and productivity.
You can select exactly how much and what type of support you want and make any necessary adjustments to the service as and when required.
If you’re not yet sure whether you need a VEA or what tasks you might want to outsource then the best place to start your decision making process is to take a thorough look at your day to day or week to week admin processes and then determine what are your repeated business as usual tasks and how much time you spend on them.
Once you have that list you can decide which of those tasks could be handed to a VEA to take care of for you.
We would be happy to walk through this exercise with you during a free no obligation discovery call.
There are huge benefits to be realised from hiring a VEA.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of them all – you get time back in your day. Whether you want more time to devote to developing your business and focussing on your clients or more time to spend with the people you love, doing the things you love.
