Why You Need The Virtual Assistant Key Business Systems
Systems are how you run your business and you should have a system for everything you do. A documented checklist or even a full-blown operations manual that lists the systems you use. Remember, No systems = No business. You don’t want to re-create the wheel every time you sign on a new client or take on a new task. You need to have a system for everything you do in your business.
Too many people don’t take the time to design, implement and document their Virtual Assistant key business systems. Instead, they use hope as a tactic. They hope they remember the steps the next time they sign a new client. Hope is not a reliable tactic.
You must spend the time and energy when you’re setting up your Virtual Assistant business to create and implement your systems. Oh, and document them too! Systems work together which means they overlap. All of your key business systems work together to run your business.
