Out of every 10 small businesses, 7 will survive their first year, 3 will still be going after 3 years, and only 2 will remain after 5 years.
Most people going into business for themselves do so because are very good at what they do – a skilled joiner, a fabulous PR person, a talented public speaker. However, it doesn’t guarantee they are great at the admin!
So how do you make sure your business is in the successful 20%?
Most small businesses fail for two reasons:
- The owner has enough of working long hours and doing everything themselves and gets a 9-5 job.
It seems silly to employ someone full time to do admin when “I could do it myself”. That’s not even considering the minefield of employment law for essentially just a few hours a week. So you end up working long, tiring hours and doing more of the admin and less of what you love.
There is another way: a Virtual Assistant!
We’re available for as little or as much as you need us – you only pay for what you use. And because we’re subcontractors there are no HR headaches, tax or admin to worry about.
