WHAT TO OUTSOURCE TO A WFH EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT (VIRTUAL ASSISTANT)
Now that we have established the meaning of a WFH executive (virtual assistant), you might already be sitting at your desk thinking, “How do I get one?” Going to the how is a bit easy as there are already multiple platforms where you can post a job ad. But before you do that, you must identify which tasks you are going to outsource for a WFH executive.
To help you efficiently come up with a list of tasks for your WFH executive, we have prepared a three-category guide that you can refer to:
CATEGORY ONE: Identify the things you hate doing.
Oftentimes, these are tasks that take too much of your time. You might hate doing these things daily because they are either repetitive or complex.
CATEGORY TWO: Distinguish the tasks you can’t do yourself.
These could be important components of your business that you don’t have any experience in. It’s best to get an expert who can handle these tasks better to ensure that things are getting done immediately and effectively.
CATEGORY THREE: Know the game-changer tasks in your business.
Every business has the opportunity to grow and expand, and though as a business owner you feel like it is your sole responsibility to make this happen, it isn’t always the case. For game-changer tasks, it is best to leave it to someone who will look at your business without bias.
Once you have identified the tasks for each of the categories, it will now be easier for you to come up with your job posting. You may refer back to these three categories to check which tasks you need immediate support in.
Now, you can properly select your WFH executive based on the skill set you perfect for the job.
