Have you been wishing for an extra pair of hands? Or did you miss out on an important task again? Chances are, it’s time to hire a Personal Assistant!
People often assume PAs are hired only by top business executives and leaders. Nothing could be further from the truth.
What exactly does a PA do? In short, PAs make life so much easier. They free up your time from non-value-adding activities so you can stay razor-focused on your goals.
Among the many tasks they perform, these are the most popular ones.
- Arranging your travel, visas, and accommodation.
- Screening your incoming communication such as emails, phone calls, inquiries and requests.
- Organizing and maintaining your day-to-day tasks and reminding you of important tasks and deadlines.
- Carrying out background research and presenting findings.
- Making appointments, organizing events and conferences.
Feeling cash rich and time poor is the telltale sign of investing in a Personal Assistant. If you need a more objective way to find it, revisit your life goals. We only have one life, and if lack of time is the reason for pushing back on the adventures you’ve always wanted, a PA can carve time out for you.
Remember, the real currency is not money but time. The more productive you get with your time, the greater the output (or adventure) becomes.
In The 4-Hour Workweek, Tim Ferris said it best;
“If I can do it better than an assistant, why should I pay them at all? Because the goal is to free your time to focus on bigger and better things.”
