How to work out if you need an ethical Virtual Assistant

Growing and scaling your business by outsourcing can be a scary prospect and it can be difficult to know when is the right time to outsource to an ethical Virtual Assistant.

Ask yourself...

  • Are you having to turn down clients and potential business due to lack of time?
  • Do you feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done?
  • Are you spending lots of time on tasks you don’t enjoy and aren’t within your zone of genius?
  • Do you feel like you are frantically trying to keep all the plates spinning?
  • Are you too busy working IN your business to have time to work ON your business?

How an Ethical Virtual Assistant can help your Sustainable Business

“Time is free, but it is priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you have lost it you can never get it back.” Harvey Mackay.

A Virtual Assistant can help you and your business by taking on some of the tasks you don’t have time for (or don’t enjoy) off your hands! By outsourcing to an ethical VA, we will help you to create extra time. Time to work on growing and scaling your ethical business or time to work towards your sustainability goals, to make a bigger impact with your business. Or time to spend with your friends and family or go on a well-deserved holiday, or do whatever you choose.

"I am an ongoing client of Planner Bee VA Services. Maya is very efficient in all areas of her work and not only keeps to her own deadlines, helps me to manage my own deadlines too. I would not have been able to launch my new business website without Planner Bee VA Services, not only building and copywriting the site, but supporting the process in all areas too. Planner Bee is a rock to my business and I couldn't imagine my workload without them"
