In today’s unprecedented time, there is a real opportunity to grow your business.

How? Take advantage of today’s change in the labor market.

Before COVID-19, the traditional labor market had a higher demand for talented workers — with more jobs available than talented workers. Over 36 million Americans lost their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic. This means that, for once, there are more quality workers than there are jobs.

The unemployment rate skyrocketed over the last two months, meaning talented workers want to be hired. You have the advantage as an employer now to find more talented workers than anytime before.

Similarly, if you would have invested in the stock market in March. Today a 50k invest could be 4000k, had you invested in March. There was a short term opportunity.

HOW DO YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS OPPORTUNITY?

By hiring a recruiting, administrative, or marketing virtual assistant, you can leverage greater talent, all at a fraction of the cost.

If you’ve been wanting to improve your business, today is the time to invest in gaining high quality talent — at a lower cost! This is a short-lived time window and there is no real prediction of when you can find this opportunity again.

To build a stronger organization, today is the time to focus on improving the organization, rather not “going back to normal.” If you need help or want to explore some ideas, schedule a free Strategy Consultation today.

HOW TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SHORT TERM OPPORTUNITIES IN OUR LABOR MARKET

Charles and Olivia share, “If the small business owner is impacted, everyone is impacted. The TOP 2 things that CANNOT be cut are the people who we are committed to, which are our employees and virtual assistants.”

Take our clients’ words for it. “Virtual Assistants are key. Without VAs, it limits us and we have more responsibilities in-house. A VA is significantly more affordable to the business pattern. We get more value for the price. This is essential and instrumental for our growth, not only now but long-term 3–5 years out, we will continue to grow our number of VAs.”
