Work Smarter, Not Harder: Prevent Burnout

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

working less?

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

dating again”.

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.
