The phrase “time is money” was never truer than when referring to the time you waste performing mundane but necessary tasks. Making Phone calls, clearing out your email inbox, posting social media updates and scheduling meetings are all essential aspects of your work, but hardly worth what you charge for your hourly rate. However, with the right mobile apps, computer software and the help of a virtual assistant, you can be super organized while reserving your valuable time for work that puts money in your pocket.

Don’t expect to achieve freedom from drudgery for free. You may be able to score some useful mobile phone apps or computer software for little or no money, but others will require a significant investment. Be prepared to pay a good salary for the services of the highest-skilled and reliable virtual assistants as well. Even so, the money you spend will be a bargain.

Once you’ve set up your apps and software and chosen one or more virtual assistants, your operation should run smoothly with little or no supervision from you. However, you must be prepared to invest the necessary time and effort up front to set things up. Ensure that each app and software program you obtain is worth installing on your mobile phone or your computer. Vet potential virtual assistants with thorough background checks and in-depth discussions about how they work and how you expect tasks to be done. After all, you will be trusting this person with crucial personal and work-related data.
