You guys are great at knowing what something costs but you don’t know what it’s worth.
As business owners, we have to focus on both. We have to watch our costs to ensure our business is sustainable in the long run. Yet we must also focus on each asset’s worth. We generally do not renew subscriptions that do not serve us, we get rid of equipment we do not need anymore, and we purchase services that support us and the bottom line.
When we get asked this question, we recognize the business owner may just be doing research as they get started on this path toward delegation and, for that, we have a cost breakdown here.
Sometimes, though, the business owner is simply overly focused on cost. Be sure to also consider the worth of a VA to your business.
Think of tasks that need to be completed consistently, are important but not urgent, have repeat steps, and you do not do or put off all the time.

Ignoring costs for now, what would it be worth to you to have tasks like these magically done? How much time back in your day or work week would you gain? What makes delegating worth it?
- When you have more energy for the tasks only you can complete
- When you have more “mental RAM” available
- When you have time for self care
- When your business grows at the pace you want
- When you are able to pay yourself more without doing more
The Value of a Virtual Assistant
