There are 2.52 million veteran majority-owned businesses in the United States. 99.9% of these businesses are classified as small businesses. Veteran entrepreneurs employ more than 5 million people, generating revenue of $1.14 trillion. Most of these businesses are grouped into the fields of construction and professional, scientific, and technical services.
As a Veteran and a small business owner, I know the hard work and sacrifice that goes into building your business. Hiring an employee is not always an option even though we need the help to get everything done, maintaining a healthy work-life balance can be difficult, and long hours are inevitable. So, let’s talk about how contracting your to-do list to a Virtual Expert can help your business venture grow and give you back some time.
You work hard on getting your services known to the public. You set appointments, manage your bookkeeping, manage your marketing, manage your email, and still go out to do the work. You decide you need to hire an employee to manage your administrative tasks so that you can focus more on doing the work and generating the income. Now you’re paying wages, filing employment taxes, paying unemployment insurance, worker’s compensation insurance, and more. Not to mention, you may not have the amount of work that is needed to keep this new employee busy for even part-time employment.
Virtual Assistants work as Independent Contractors, so you only pay for actual productive hours. They pay their own insurance, buy their own equipment and needed software to do the job, and have spent the time and money needed for the necessary training. They are dedicated. They are small business owners that invest in themselves and their business so that they can assist you in achieving your goals in the most cost-efficient and effective way.
You can focus on increasing your profits while Virtual Assistants focus on tasks that can be time-consuming for you. From one Veteran to another, let’s build our community up and support one another.
