Have you ever stopped and think the benefit of having a virtual employee to your health?
Entrepreneurial stress is real.
Responding to hundreds of emails a day is a good sign that business is growing but it will eventually take its toll on your health. The founder of Heddings Property Group in New York City, Douglas Heddings gets his inbox filled at a rate of 50 emails per hour and this went straight to his back and had to undergo surgery. The back problem “has a great deal to do with the fact that I feel I have to be on call 24/7,” Heddings says. “This is not good for my mental and physical well-being.” Researchers couldn’t agree more.
Researchers found a 33 percent increased risk of stroke among individuals working 55 hours or more per week compared to those working a standard 40-hour week.
Owning a business has its challenges which frequently equates to stress. Some of the symptoms of having entrepreneurial stress are:
- Emotional ups & down. Changes can range from being aggressive to being overly sensitive.
- Mental alertness may be hampered; there are times you might have trouble concentrating.
- Change in behavior. This can go from change in eating habits, twitches, sleep patterns, etc.
So what can an entrepreneur do?
As a busy business owner, the one way you can get your head floating above the water is to get a Virtual Employee (VE). A VE can handle your everyday tasks, giving you time to focus on things that really matter.
Picture this, someone who can do the administrative tasks for you: responding to emails, managing your online presence, setting appointment, etc. These are just some of the things a VE can do for you and there are many other ways a Virtual Employee can improve your day-to-day operations.
Having a VE should reduce your working hours by approximately 50% allowing you to either be more productive with your time or enjoy the freedom to do other things.
