It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for those who have the time to enjoy it. Let’s be honest, the Festive season is a lovely time, but it’s also the busiest time. From Christmas shopping to end of year parties to staff gifts, it can all become very stressful. Good news though! You can hire a Virtual Assistant to attend to everything while you take your well-deserved break or while you are tying up year-end business.
We’ve mentioned everything a Virtual Assistant does, but there’s one more aspect of the job that might just be the cherry on top or rather the bright star upon the Christmas tree. Your Virtual Assistant can handle your personal affairs too!
With Christmas rapidly approaching, there are a hundred and one things to do and it feels like the list is never-ending. Do not fret, help is on its way and yes, it can all be done online/remotely! Your Virtual Assistant will handle everything from sorting out staff gifting to even planning your end of year function. On the personal side of things, you also have your very own shopper. All you have to do is brief your VA on who you’re wanting to buy presents for, a wish list if you’re able to draft one and a budget and there we go, Bob’s your uncle, Christmas shopping sorted!
But what about the rest of the year?
We understand that when you have your own business, attending to personal tasks may seem cumbersome or even as a waste of precious time. To alleviate that unnecessary stress, your Virtual Assistant can handle personal day-to-day tasks too.
The below list is just a few of the tasks your Virtual Assistant can attend to:
· Booking medical/lifestyle appointments i.e., doctor, hairdresser, beautician etc
· Online grocery shopping
· Organising holidays
· Planning personal events i.e., birthdays, dinner parties etc
Your Virtual Assistant is there to make life easier for you. They are there to ensure that everything is taken care of while you focus on things that truly matter.
For the Virtual Assistant
When you are asked to complete tasks of a personal nature, it is important to remember the following:
· Discretion and trustworthiness: you will often be party of confidential information
· Flexibility and adaptability
· Organisational skills and the ability to multitask
· The ability to be proactive and take the initiative
· Tact and diplomacy
You do life, while we do virtually everything else!
