The remote workforce has gained more traction in various businesses and enterprises. From major businesses to a small team units of entrepreneurs, having a remote workforce not only gives everyone the option to work during the current situation, but also allows those who normally can’t work the 9-5 grind find work. Not only that, there are businesses that have performed exceptionally well after they have shifted to having a remote workforce. Even CEOs and business owners have found their efficiency growing by hiring a Dedicated Distant Assistant.
This may have you thinking: should I hire a remote worker for my business projects? The idea has a lot of merit, but maybe you’re hesitant because of the type of business that you have.
That hesitation is understandable. While it may be on the rise, there are still a lot of jobs that cannot be executed remotely. If your business requires you to offer service to someone in person or doesn’t rely on computers as much, chances are you will likely not be fully remote. However, there are still parts of your business that may benefit from it. Take for example in the medical field. You may not be able to hire a remote worker to handle your patients, but you can hire someone to handle paperwork such as prescriptions and charts. You can also direct someone to help with scheduling your patients and maintaining contact with them for future meetings and such.
Today, we are looking into our client Roberto, an entrepreneur who has the same need as you may have. Read on to discover how a dedicated distant assistant can help you like it has helped Roberto.
Meet Roberto, the Solopreneur Writer
Roberto is an entrepreneur who has dabbled in multiple business in the past and still continues to do so. His main passion nowadays is to write books on his past experiences as a Solopreneur. He has written a few books on the matter which performed well, and has a goal to write more in the future.
His goal is to teach budding entrepreneurs the tricks of the trade, and maybe even teach some of the older generation some new tricks. He also has been extended several invites to speak at local and global conferences about his ideas and travelled on the road for extended periods of time. All of these have helped him create a wide network of friends who are also fellow entrepreneurs, and in turn give him more insight and ideas for his next book. Not to mention the reach and sales of his books in different states and countries.
In this situation, you would wonder why Roberto would need a dedicated distant assistant. People have always associated having a personal assistant to higher positions such as CEOs or business owners. But in reality, having one that could handle your lower priority or administrative tasks can help boost your efficiency at work – whether you are a manager of a small team, or a solopreneur like Roberto.
Roberto needs another Roberto
Have you ever felt like cloning yourself? If only there were two of you to carry out the important things that need to get done! Read on if this sounds like something you can relate to.
While in-person conferences and guest talks have declined recently due to the circumstances, the popularity of virtual ones are in the rise, and Roberto is riding it like a champ. When he is not busy with that, he checks his book sales and talk shop with fellow entrepreneurs. All in all, a very fulfilling day’s work, but there is a problem…
Due to all his engagements and daily administrative tasks, Roberto has found himself in a bind. He had no time to focus on his new project: writing a book on the current shift of businesses to having a remote workforce. But given his filled schedule, the only time he would have for it is on his off days. Those precious days are spent refilling his tank with family and friends.
This is a likely scenario for entrepreneurs, or even budding business owners. As hiring another person means added expenses, they try to wear as many hats in the company as they can handle. While it may seem cost-efficient, the main problem is that you will be sacrificing your own time on low-priority tasks daily. You need a Dedicated Distant Assistant who can handle that load for you, so you can focus on taking your business to the next level, or in Roberto’s case having time to focus on what’s important to him.
Roberto gets a Dedicated Distant Assistant
After much deliberation, and a bit of cajoling from his colleagues, Roberto finally opted to get a dedicated distant assistant. And since he was not familiar on where to hire a reliable one, he enlisted the services of Bottleneck Distant Assistants, who takes extra care to source someone according to his needs.
After even just one week, Roberto confesses that he wish he’d hired someone on sooner. Now he has someone who can sort his schedule for him, unlike before when he worried about overlaps or having to rush topics due to his bustling day. His dedicated distant assistant also handles the management apps he uses for his book sales and reach. All he has to do now is read through the summary and analyze it accordingly.
Most importantly, Roberto has made headway in his new book. Given his recent experience, he might even include a chapter or two about his reliable dedicated distant assistant!
