WHERE DETAILS MATTER !

Should You Hire An Executive Assistant?

Have you considered hiring an executive assistant?

Before you dismiss the concept, set aside your notions of their traditional role…

They don’t have to be sitting at a desk outside your office door to be an influential member of your team.

We’re slowly returning to normal in the wake of the pandemic, but I believe we all learned how productive we are while working remotely. There’s no need to abandon that knowledge, even as we’re able to return to our offices and be in the same room as our colleagues.

Yes, we’ll all miss Zoom meetings…or not.

A remote executive assistant can add value to your start-up or allow you to upscale your business and avoid being bogged down by routine tasks.

Even a small investment in temporary support for a product launch, systems implementation, or taming your Inbox will pay dividends.

You’re a visionary…so don’t sweat the small stuff

It’s hard for entrepreneurs to delegate – we understand that. 

You’ve come up with a unique business concept, invested time and energy into the launch, probably sacrificed sleep – and potentially your social life. Now you’re up and running. But you feel like you’re running around with a fire extinguisher putting out daily fires…

You have an accountant to do your taxes, a lawyer to navigate state and federal laws. Who is taking care of the day-to-day details?

If you let go of those details that, frankly, weren’t your strong suit in the first place, you’ll unleash potential to expand your business and not rob you of sleep or friends.

Hire an executive assistant, and they can manage the minutia while you look ahead to your next start-up, your next hire, or your next innovation.

Before you burn out, consider these three great reasons to hire an executive assistant.

1. They’ll deal with the cause, not the symptom

An excellent executive assistant will be able to drill down and find out how and why you’re losing hours – and potentially clients – in a day. Is your voicemail full of unheard messages? Is your email a tangle of client, staff, and personal messages?

They can work through your inbox, create categories and priorities. They can be your filter…

2. They’ll be your proxy

You can’t be in two places at once, but there will be days when you wish that were possible. 

You don’t have to share your entire company blueprint with an executive assistant. Still, if you take the time to explain your priorities for a specific project, they can attend planning meetings and gather information on your behalf.

They will represent you and your brand with confidence and report back with clarity. They’ll provide you with action items and have suggestions for the next steps.

3. They’ll be one step ahead of you

A great executive assistant will learn how to anticipate what you need when you need it. Your focus is building your business. Their focus is supporting you…

They’ll be tuned in to your vision and learn to listen carefully for cues. When you delegate a task to them, you can be assured that they’ll deliver results. You can forget about the details and keep expanding your business.

A stitch in time is worth nine

I know what you’re thinking.

You don’t have time to get an assistant up to speed. 

But, if you invest in a partner who can adapt to your unique business climate quickly – and identify areas for supporting your company – you’ll get some breathing room.

You might even get home in time for dinner.

Once they’re fully briefed on your short and long-term goals, they’ll be the right hand you didn’t know you were missing.

We have a team of experts who understand the mechanics of getting an enterprise off the ground, keeping it in the air, and getting you out of the trenches.

If you need support for a product launch, systems analysis, or simply having someone ride herd on your daybook to keep you on schedule, we have the knowledge and experience to support you.

We can anticipate your needs and work with you seamlessly…whether it’s for a week, a month, or a year.
