On the brink of burnout? How can I prevent it?
Meet Alexandra, the go-to expert in business consulting. Her knack for identifying
weak points and uncovering growth opportunities has turned her business into a
success story. Clients are knocking on her door, eager for her expertise. While
Alexandra thrives on helping others succeed, there's a catch.
Behind the scenes, her to-do list is a never-ending saga: emails, invoices, and a
dance with the accountant. Despite her passion for client work, the mounting
tasks mean late nights, less family time, and a fatigue that's creeping towards
burnout. Alexandra's love for her job is clear, but the struggle with overwhelming
tasks is real.
Success means hard work and dedication. Burnout is part of the equation...
Can you relate to that? Success comes at a cost. If we want to be more
successful we need to work harder. We have to be at least once in our lifetime
close to burnout, in order to call ourselves successful. You can’t have both a
successful career and a lot of quality time, right?
What if I tell you you are dead wrong and I’m going to explain myself in a minute.
Would you rather have a successful career, spend more time with your family or
both? Would you like to maintain or even increase your level of success while
Ok, I hear what you say: “That’s not possible”, and “I’m sorry to break it to you but
Santa doesn’t exist”, but before you leave hear me out: It is possible to reduce
our workload without seeing our results drop, to increase our productivity and fall
in love with our job again and you should do it. You might say “I already know
what you are talking about but it doesn't work”. Let me explain.
How to Delegate with Ease and Prevent Burnout
By now you probably know where I’m going. You probably listened to a great
amount of talks about this subject. How important it is to delegate, to let go all
these tedious little tasks that consume our valuable time. But the golden question
is “How can I do it?”
Maybe you aren’t opposed to it and maybe you have tried it in the past without
success. Or maybe you are one of those people that think “people make
mistakes and I can’t afford mistakes”. Maybe I can change your mind.
Nobody knows how to do it other than me
This is a common misbelief and limits us, if we won’t let go even the simplest of
task we’ll be eternally stuck in all the small little tasks in our day to day and won’t
have the necessary time and energy focussing on to what really matters:
nurturing and growing our business. In Remote Bob we have a list of skillful and
trained Virtual Assistants who can take the workload off of you.
I don’t have time to hire an Virtual Assistant
Hiring the right people takes up time and energy. The task seems never ending:
writing the job description, listing the job, receiving and reviewing applications,
doing job interviews and so on. It takes up valuable time we don’t have in the first
In Remote Bob we do the work for you. After a discovery call we know exactly
what you need and within five work days we present to you your perfect
I don’t know where to look for an VA
The labor market is big and extensive, and it can be intimidating navigating
through it. Where should I post the job? Should I hire a HR company? Should I
hire locally or explore for talents in other parts of the world? There are so many
options and finding the right fit that works for me can be challenging, especially in
the modern, globalized economy.
Don’t worry, we do the heavy lifting for you. Our team is trained in finding the
hidden gemstones, refining and polishing them by walking them through our
training program, and assigning them to the right person. We ensure the quality
of work by monitoring the tasks and working hours your Virtual Assistant does
and regularly seek your feedback to ensure the Virtual Assistant is up for the task
and guarantee your satisfaction.
I don’t know how to hire an VA
What are the right questions to ask, what traits am I looking for, red flags I should
watch out for, and so on. The list is long. But I don’t want to do all that, I just want
to focus on doing my work and delivering value to my clients.
Then Remote Bob is the right place for you: Our team is experienced in vetting
and identifying the right candidates, providing them with additional training if
necessary so they are fit for the job by the time you meet them.
I’ve tried it once and had nothing but problems
Everybody knows the struggle: we went through a hiring process, finally hired
somebody that looks competent, put our trust into them, spent time and money
on training them and after all that it turns out the skills they mentioned on their CV
aren’t really there, or even worse, they break our trust. It feels like a bad break up
where we can’t stop but think “all men (or women) are the same, I’ll never start
Chances are you didn’t know what to look for, and I don’t judge you. Your entire
career you focussed on your personal professional growth in order to provide a
better service to our customers. Hiring somebody requires a completely different
skill set. Our team is specialized in understanding what you need and finding the
right person with the right skill set to assist you and take the workload off of you.
What should I do?
Let’s go back to Alexandra, she realized that she needed to incorporate
somebody to assist her with all the repetitive tasks that are necessary but don’t
provide any additional value to her business.
In order to be able to focus solely on her work with clients she delegated all her
non essential tasks like managing inbox, scheduling calls and meetings,
organizing her calendar, and so on. Suddenly Alexandra had so much more time
to spare, she took some additional clients and even could go home early to
spend time with her kids.
