Master your strengths
A skilled virtual executive assistant complements your weaknesses. While most entrepreneurs prefer not to dwell on their weaknesses, an awareness of areas that may affect productivity and profitability can be an asset when hiring an virtual executive assistant.
Many peoples weakness is handling emails and written correspondence in a timely manner. An executive assistant is excellent at handling communications and following up on emails. By providing your VEA with the information needed to handle any correspondence, your time is available to address other things.
If time management isn’t your strong point, a VEA can make sure you stay on task by enforcing time limits on meetings or making sure you don’t miss out on important phone calls or appointments. A good assistant keeps a business owner on time and in the know. It’s an assistant’s job to make the CEO look good.
