We all do so much for our businesses that we can’t possibly know EVERYTHING there is to know about everything! We might know all that needs to get done for our businesses, but we might not be the “best” at executing certain strategies. That is when it’s essential and important to ask for help.
As an influencer for the last ten years, I’ve made it my business throughout the years to blog/tweet/Facebook/video/pin/Instagram/snap (you name it!) digital content. I’ve adapted to the ever changing landscape of social media teaching myself and embracing new lessons and strategies to make my digital business grow.
About three years ago I really started to get bogged down with work. I’m someone who works 24/7, so for me not being able to keep up REALLY was affecting my personal and my professional life.
I needed help.
The funny thing was – I didn’t want to admit it to myself.
I thought I could do it all! I could make it work! I can roll with any punches! The reality was – I couldn’t. I definitely needed someone to help me out. So I did what Vera had been telling me for months and months…I hired a VA (virtual assistant).
This one simple act changed everything. All of a sudden I had someone to help me out with exactly what I needed — and it was AMAZING!
This was a tough lesson for me to learn… for months I was sacrificing my own business because I just didn’t want to admit that I needed help.
Take my advice…don’t do this. Whether it’s a certain area of your business that you don’t know very well, or an area of your business that you don’t particularly love…find help.
