when do coaches need virtual assistants

Just because you’re in the coaching industry, don’t think you would never have a need for a virtual assistant or coach of your own. Seems like a funny thing to think about but even the best coaches could use some help streamlining their businesses or having an objective third party to talk to about personal or family matters.

Business coaches or virtual assistants can assist anyone with their businesses and often will find things to fix or change simply because they have an objective, outside viewpoint. Everything from billing inefficiencies to brainstorming product ideas, VA’s and business coaches can be non-judgmental sounding boards who offer clarity and perspective.

your VA as your accountability partner

If you have a plan in place for creating a signature program, utilizing a VA as an accountability partner is a wise investment. We all tend to work more efficiently when we know there’s a deadline looming but it’s also easy to ignore that deadline because we are the ones who set it. Rather than moving your deadline further and further away, use this accountability partner to keep your productivity on track.

Accountability is necessary in many instances, though, not just in product creation. Whatever goals you have set for yourself, your VA will hold you solely responsible for meeting those deadlines and goals.

your VA as your guide

A good virtual assistant will have the ability to challenge your thinking and your goals in a non-threatening, non-judgmental way. Instead of staying inside your comfort zones, a VA will encourage you to explore what you fear in an effort to fight that fear and try something new. VA’s also have the skill to break down large tasks into smaller tasks that don’t seem so intimidating. They can also guide you with instructions for how to do or implement something in our business.

get your plan started beforehand

Before you spend good money on a virtual assistant, create a business plan with your goals and your action steps spelled out. You want to provide your VA with a starting point and chances are that would be your first assignment anyway with a new coach.

final thoughts

If setting up a business plan sounds daunting or you don’t know where to start, planning will keep you focused on your next action steps. Recognizing why taking action is so vitally important if you want to reach serious goals, is how you will break down your overwhelming tasks into doable action steps that will improve your productivity.
