Virtual Assistant Needed!

I think it’s time to delegate.  I can’t do it all and how can someone do it possibly better than I?  I’m afraid of taking the time to demostrate, instruct, and hope that someone can get inside my head.  I know I”m not alone so what does one give up so they can move upward and forward rather than stagnated in tedious tasks. The truth is because I spread myself so thin, my work suffers and then I fall in to an artist’s block. You’ve got to have time to cook a great dinner, right? I’m pretty good about whipping up a meal out of nothing but my husband will notice the difference on food that is made with love.

I’m reading a great book that a mentor friend of mine suggested to read so I’m looking at ways to cut back.  How?  What? When? Where?  Ok, it’s not that hard, Michele.  Figure it out! Take a breath, write down all the ways you can save time and yes…. delegate.

The first area for me is always paperwork.  It’s a bigger task for me to hand it off in an organized manner. But, isn’t that just the point. Give it to someone to assist you. I just have a difficult time giving someone things so personal. And, yet….who would that be that I could trust with my life?  Not sure about that one but I’ll figure it out.  I don’t want to burden my accountant with miscellaneous stuff but I’m going to find someone to just organize my system.

A housekeeper would be the ultimate but I cannot justify it on the way the economy is going. However, while she is slaving away on my floors and toilets, I could be painting or blogging away, right?  The next job I’d like to hand off is doing the final tasks for my silks. Normally, I would finish all seven steps to finalize the silk painting process. I don’t need an artist but someone who needs a job, any job. This is not my favorite part of the work and I could concentrate on the fun stuff.  I think I’ll start with the housekeeper to free up some time to paint and earn some moo-lah.  Then I could have some extra bucks to find the next assistant!  Sounds like a good idea to me, what do you all think?
