Year in Review: The World Went Virtual (And It Needs Assistants)
There’s no need for further emphasis on how insane last year was. The whole world went into survival mode and had to adapt at an unprecedented rate. Nearly all industries experienced massive changes in their work landscape.
For most, it has been a slow transition to the “new normal” and what that meant for business was a whole lot of adjustments to find a balance between productivity and safety. Thankfully, technology has already evolved enough to accommodate such changes.
The spotlight is now turned to the virtual workforce. As businesses shifted to minimizing, if not eliminating, physical transactions, many brick and mortar stores found themselves navigating a foreign marketplace—the Internet. While it has been difficult, there is no doubt that the virtual world is what kept most industries going.
By now, we all know that the digital workplace can be just as busy and noisy as the office. Working from home seemed like a dream back in 2019 and hey, we’re living it now.
But has the digital dream of working from home become a nightmare?
As you bring your business into your home, you are faced with a greater risk of fatigue and burnout. After all, you are already coping with so many problems outside of work—living with a constant threat to health and safety, for instance.
There’s always a silver lining, however. You don’t have to do things alone.
The advent of technology has made it easier for us to connect to one another across the globe and to put systems in place for more efficient and productive work, all from the comfort of our homes.
Here’s the buzz—successful entrepreneurs almost always outsource work. You didn't start your business to spend hours answering emails, scheduling social media posts, or coordinating your appointments.
We’ve talked about this before. When we spend time doing things we aren’t interested in, the drain on our energy and productivity is significant. An hour spent doing something you don't like is far more taxing than an hour spent in your zone of genius.
So ask yourself, wouldn’t it be great to get a virtual assistant?
