It’s Christmas! Getting ready to spend time with family, loved ones and friends? You can always use an extra set of hands if things get really busy. But fret not, if you have a Virtual Assistant, then you can make everything easier for yourself. Aside from assigning them business-related tasks, you can also have them assist you in personal matters. Your own Santa’s Little Helper, if you will. Here are holiday tasks Virtual Assistants excel in:
Traveling for the holidays? Then let your VA handle arranging your travel plans. Booking flight and hotel reservations, car rentals, and arranging schedules, these are all tasks Virtual Assistants can do for you to lighten your load.
Picking perfect presents can be quite stressful. Shopping’s a real chore. Thankfully, these days you can do it online rather than wade through crowded stores. Still, you might not have enough time to go through the selections of half a dozen or more online stores while comparing prices and picking out the best deals. This is where a VA comes in. You can let them list down gift ideas and options before you make the final decision.
Ordering and Sending Holiday Cards
Traditional Christmas cards and goofy or tacky novelty ones are part of the season. Like gifts, if you’re short on time and can’t create and send one of your own, you can have your VA do it instead. Virtual Assistants skilled in graphic design or content writing will definitely produce quality results!
Accounting or bookkeeping are tasks Virtual Assistants often specialize in. VAs with such expertise can be real lifesavers when it comes to balancing the books. They can help you take advantage of certain tax strategies that will pay off when tax season comes around.
Holding the Fort
Some time away from the business is healthy, you can get some much needed R&R and enjoy the company of your family and friends, rather than just The Company. Still, it can be hard to leave work behind. So let your Virtual Assistant cover for you while you’re gone. They can check in and keep the business running and forward any urgent matters to you as needed. While you can rest easy knowing that you have someone you can trust staying on top of things.
These tips can apply to holidays too. And if your trusty VA has been helping you through most of the year and contributed to your business, then you can show them your appreciation in a way that’s in keeping with the season. After all, they have families too and are looking forward to enjoying the holidays as well.
