Once you’ve decided that you need a virtual assistant to help you with your business, the next question becomes… “Who is going to be the best fit for MY sleep consulting business?”
Answer: A fellow sleep consultant
It’s a big deal to bring a virtual assistant into your business. It’s a big deal to let go of parts of your business and trust someone else to do them just as well as you, or better.
That’s completely understandable! And it’s also exactly why you should hire a sleep consultant as your VA.
She knows the business
A sleep consultant’s knowledge of sleep will serve your business well. How could anyone other than a sleep consultant help you with answering your emails, engaging with your leads, or proofreading your sleep plans?
Having the peace of mind that someone else who knows the ins and outs of sleep, as well as the workflow of a sleep consulting business, will feel like your virtual assistant is truly your own personal assistant. Someone you can bounce ideas off of and someone who gets it. I am someone who understands the highs and lows and the emotional toll of running a sleep consulting business.
When you hire a sleep consultant as your VA you can feel confident that your content, inbox, and engagement are being handled by a professional just like you!
This brings me to my next point…
Time is money
The greatest benefit for you when you hire a fellow sleep consultant as your VA is that you save time on training. And we all know that time is money! Save time, save money.
Now that’s not to say that there is zero training involved. You will need to have a discussion about your sleep philosophy and the way you run YOUR sleep consulting business. Add a little systems training (where applicable) and BOOM…You have yourself a VA! A VA you feel confident can run parts of your business and effectively communicate with your leads.
And the time you save on training your VA, not to mention the time you save on the tasks your VA is now performing, will make you more money.
How will hiring a VA make you more money?
Well…now that you are no longer tied up with scheduling content, responding to countless inquiries, and answering DMs, you have now freed up your time to do more of what you love...helping more families sleep! More clients = more money.
Passion for our industry
Not only does a fellow sleep consultant love sleep just as much as you, she also has a passion for the sleep consulting industry. I have had multiple people ask me why I would want to help my “competition” and maybe you’ve even had that thought too. But the reason that I love helping other sleep consultants in their businesses is that I want to see us all succeed. The better our industry does, the better we all do.
You probably started your businesses because you discovered a deep passion for sleep and helping families get more of it. It’s this same passion that our VAs will bring to your business when you hire us. No other VA is going to understand just how passionate and personal your business is like another sleep consultant.
You know that sleep consulting is still an unknown profession to so many people. And it’s certainly a misunderstood profession to many others. A sleep consultant is a perfect VA for your business because she is also invested in this industry.
When you hire someone as your VA you certainly hope that they will have the same passion for your business as you do, but it may not be the case. But when you hire a sleep consultant as your VA, you know she does!
Are you ready to start outsourcing some of your business tasks?
Are you looking for the perfect fit for your sleep consulting business? Someone who gets it (the business, the sleep, the emotion)? Someone who is going to bring professionalism and passion to your business?
Sister, business wasn’t meant to be done alone!
