You know how bartenders are also psychiatrists, if we really want to be honest about it? One of the many benefits of a Virtual Assistant is you now have your very own confidential sounding board. That may seem like a small thing, but it’s not.

Let’s say you have a presentation to a potential client coming up. You are rightfully focused on each slide of the presentation deck, what you’ll say and the points you want to be sure to cover. It might be beneficial to have a second set of eyes review the presentation and provide valuable feedback from the perspective of the audience. Your VA could point out something you hadn’t even thought of.

You know how someone else’s energy can dictate how you feel about a situation? Typically we think of negative examples of someone who is so obnoxious they suck the life out of the room. But the opposite can also be true. Some people have a sunny, bright disposition that is contagious. They can have a profound impact on a situation. Over time you and your VA will be able to balance each other out. It can be a real benefit to have support in your corner, or an out-loud belly laugh just when you need it the most.

Have you ever been in a situation where you had to make an important decision and wanted the opinion of someone else? When it’s an important decision, you want to make sure you have considered every angle. What if you have focused so much on one aspect that you completely forgot about an obvious aspect that could potentially be a deal-breaker? Insert capable and thoughtful VA here. Your VA can listen and provide feedback that could be valuable in this situation.

There are many benefits of a Virtual Assistant. Which one could most benefit you?
