Are you struggling with daily tasks? by Liz Saunders

Sisyphus was a cruel Greek king who, for his misdeeds, was punished by having to push a large rock up a steep hill, only to find it rolling back to the bottom when he neared the top.  His punishment was for eternity.

Do you ever feel like Sisyphus?  I’m not suggesting you are a cruel and evil Greek king, but do you have an endless list of bits and bobs that you must do, but that get in the way of having the time to meet with clients, on board new clients, and/or get profitable work done? 

What kind of administration feels like a daily Sisyphian feat?

·         Endless emails

·         Database management

·         Answering phone calls while you’re with clients

·         Chasing people to book appointments

·         Following up on delinquent invoices

·         Keeping up with your social media or website 

None of these actually make you any money – but you have to do them in order to keep the business ticking (like a Timex watch), growing and earning an income.

Why continue to push the boulder uphill when The Virtual Alternative can do it for you?  Let us do the heavy, repetitive lifting while you focus on your clients, maybe even find some family time and dare I say it – take some much needed vacation?!
