7 Reasons to Hire a Specialized Virtual Assistant

What is a Specialized Virtual Assistant?

A specialized Virtual Assistant is someone who focuses on a limited number of skill sets, called “niching down”. Instead of knowing a little about a lot of different topics, a specialist continues learning and stays up to date on their preferred skills to become an expert on that topic.

For example, you wouldn’t hire a family physician to do open-heart surgery. You would go to a specialized heart surgeon who does that procedure instead.

Although Virtual Assistants (VA) wouldn’t be a life or death situation, the point is,  if you want something done right the first time, who is passionate about what they do and are an expert at it, you’ll be much happier with the results.

Here’s an example of a Specialized Virtual Assistant.

You’re finally making some consistent money with your blog or service-based business and ready to start handing off some tasks you don’t enjoy or don’t have time for. Congratulations! This is exciting and the next step to start growing your business.

Ideally, you want to hire VA who has a specialized skill set, not someone who is a “jack of all trades, master of none.”

What is a “word of the year”?

This may mean different things to different people, but to me, a word of the year summarizes a theme and feelings I want to have for the year. This word will guide everything I decide to reach my goals. It helps me make sure I’m intentional with everything I do.
