The Key Benefits of Hiring a Distant Assistant

The Key Benefits of Hiring a Distant Assistant

You don’t have to be alone in running your business. Too often it’s difficult to let go of something you enjoy doing. Every business has a variety of functions, which you don’t really have to work all by yourself. You can delegate tasks to reliable individuals online. Here are the key benefits of hiring a distant assistant. Understand how you can advance your business with an online worker—you might need one today!

1. Lessen Your Workload

As you progress in your business, it’s inevitable to have more tasks as well. It is a sweet sign that your business is growing. However, regardless of how much you love your job—no matter how passionate you are in doing it, you can’t dismiss the fact that you can’t handle everything.

The thing is…

You need time and energy to ensure you meet the demands of your business. But if you do not have enough of these resources, you can end up getting overwhelmed with lots of things to do.

This is why…

You need to find a way, if not make one, to lessen the load you are dealing with. Good news is there are people to whom you can delegate tasks. You don’t have to be alone.

You can still earn a good amount of money to run your business, with these people by your side. Simply know how to manage and work with them. There is so much to life than work.

Hiring a distant assistant lessens your workload, and gives you more time with your:


For whom do you wake up each morning? Many people refer to their families as their source of inspiration. You can have a good paying job, but connect poorly with the people you associate with.

Work doesn’t have to hinder you from spending quality time with them. If you have too much to work on, you can benefit from hiring a distant assistant. That way, you have more time for the ones who inspire you.

Like they say, you can’t concentrate too much on temporal gain only to put away the time you can have with people on whom you can leave a lasting impression.


What are the things you enjoy doing? Sports? Traveling? Cooking? Some people think of work as their hobby. If you think so too, then you might not have to read this blog any further.

Hiring a distant assistant frees up time you can enjoy. A study shows how using your free time for enjoyment lessens stress and increases happiness. Take the time you need to relax and enjoy life to fullest.


Aside from hobbies, you might have some other things in mind. You can have other goals outside of work. It could be studying, going out on a date, attending a doctor’s appointment, meeting with your civic group, etc.

They may not be as important in contrast to your business, but they are still significant in your life. Simply put, you can carry on your other priorities and interests when you have a distant assistant working with you.


How much time do you spend on your self? It’s not a question of how vain you are. As everything moves forward, you can’t leave your self behind.

You can be so wrapped up with work that you forget to comb your hair, improve your health, and socialize. You might be surprised one day that no matter how successful you are at work, your appearance and overall being go the complete opposite. Invest on your well being not only because you deserve it, but also because you need it—it’s one worthy investment.

2. Complete the Tasks You Can’t

There’s a saying that goes, you can do anything but you can’t do everything. Everyone has limitations in one way or another. The same is true in running a business.

Our time is bound by 24 hrs a day and 365 days a year. It’s constant and cannot be stopped. No matter how much you want to achieve a lot in less time, it’s just not possible—new tasks come up, new clients, new projects.

This is why you’ll benefit from hiring a distant assistant (DA). A DA does not have to be physically around to help you out. With someone by your side, you can complete tasks which aren’t possible with the amount of time you have.

A distant assistant takes the time he has, and adds it to yours to help you achieve more. Now, isn’t that sweet?


Apart from time, a DA can lend you his skills and knowledge to complete functions in your business that you may have difficulty in. It could be web development, social media marketing, blogging, or anything else that you don’t know much about.

It’s a win-win situation for both parties. The DA helps you advance your business, and you help the DA improve his skills in return. There’s no telling where the road of success will lead you two.

3. Save Money

The Key Benefits of Hiring a Virtual AssistantThis is perhaps the sweetest benefit that you can have from hiring a distant assistant. It’s natural to want more time and have someone who can help. You’d most likely jump right into the opportunity if desire is only what it takes to have a DA.

But, money will always be involved. You can’t think of hiring someone without thinking about the expenses. Everyone needs money to get through the everyday things in life, such as food and shelter.

You might only have a small budget for your business, and aren’t sure if you can hire someone to help. You have the desire but may not have the money. Try to assess your situation carefully first.

In contrast to traditional work, however, having a DA costs less. You’ll be able to save money from not having to put up an office, pay employee taxes and benefits, and the like.

Distant assistants are self-employed individuals. You can hire them either full time or part time. The pay even costs less if you hire someone from less developed countries, because their rate of living isn’t as expensive as living in the US and in other developed countries.


DAs can give you the quality work you need. Only be guided in hiring the right person for your business. You would be happy to have someone who is dedicated and passionate with his work.

That way, you’re sure that he will do his best in every task you give him. There is satisfaction in doing well on the things you love doing, especially when it comes with proper compensation for the amount of work you do.

When you have someone that’s dedicated, passionate, skillful and online to help you, you achieve more work and save more resources in running your business.

4. Add Value to Your Business

Since you want your business to take on the next level, it will be worth it to come up with ways to improve every aspect of it. When you hire a DA, you give your business room to grow.


Distant assistants can help you get the things you need completed. They enable you to focus on more important functions, and give you more time to do the things you love. That way, you have more energy and focus to see the big picture—the direction you want your business to go.

On your end, you simply make sure your distant assistant is in step with your goals. Help him see and understand your vision and mission. Like they say, it takes two to tango.

Your steps need to be well coordinated to produce a powerful impact.

When that happens, you complete projects efficiently and accomplish more in every milestone you reach. Simply put, you hire a DA to give your business more opportunity for success.

5. Earn More and Enjoy More

Needless to say, hiring a distant assistant frees up time. It is that benefit that allows you to do more and achieve more. Consequently, your business continues to grow and profit.

One thing good about having online help is the DA you work with is primarily concerned about doing well. This is because the job he has with you is his business, his livelihood. Distant assistants are professional individuals who offer what they know, and try to get better at it.

For them, more work means more chances to earn. Traditional workers, on the other hand, can stay idle in the office and still get paid with a stable pay rate. With DAs, you can pay them by the hour or by project.

You can even use time trackers with screenshots to check on the work they provide.

“Employees who believe that management is concerned about them as a whole person—not just an employee—are more productive, more satisfied, more fulfilled. Satisfied employees mean satisfied customers, which leads to profitability.” -Anne M. Mulcahy

Coordinate with distant assistants, and help them be more familiar with your business. Establish an effective way of communicating your goals, and develop a healthy work relationship with them. When you do, you encourage them to do better. It’s how you earn more and enjoy more.
