It’s Wednesday, halfway through the week, and rather than an ‘aha!’ moment, I’m having an ‘aaargh!’ moment.
When I was a fledgeling sales person, a trainer told me to avoid making cold calls on a Wednesday. He advised that at the mid-stage in the week, people started to feel a bit on the back foot and would give any sales caller short shrift, sending them marching, before there was the least chance of getting a toe over the threshold.
My problem’s rarely my feet (other than the one I tend to jam in my mouth fairly frequently), but rather, my hands – I reckon I could really rock the multi-arm Hindu goddess look.
Unfortunately, I don’t have multiple hands to juggle the week’s jobs.
Fortunately, I have something even better!
Want to know what my secret weapon is?
A Virtual Assistant.
Actually, Dragon Sisters has several VA’s, who are some of my favourite people on the planet. Especially when I get to off-load jobs I’m rubbish at, slow at, or stuff I just hate doing!
Having a VA is like having a fairy god person complete with a wand to magic stuff for you.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
That’s because it is!
If you want to know more, here’s Michelle’s Free yourself up with a Freelancer article, which applies to selecting a Wunderkind VA too.
Plus, where to find them and how to pick a good one.
Now, I’m off to email my Aargh Moment into the ether where it will be magically transformed into an Aha Moment, by a very talented VA ???.
Nothing like breaking out your Secret Wednesday Weapon ?.
