I recently had a conversation with a client about what she needed support in as she was growing her business. I had started out as her virtual assistant and was moving into the role of Operations Manager.
She said she had a feeling she was looking for a purple unicorn. Then she told me what exactly she was hoping to have support around and I knew that I was that proverbial “purple unicorn” she needed because what she was looking for was exactly what I could provide.
As a business owner you too may think you are looking for a purple unicorn because you don’t think you can possibly get the level of support you envision so you have more time freedom and can spend your own time doing what you do best.
I want to explain to you how I can help you so you can decide how important more time is in your life.
When I take on the role of Virtual Business Manager or Operations Manager (or whatever term you have in mind) I take on the day to day running of your business. I become a second brain for you.
Some of the tasks I can handle for you include checking/responding to email and social media messages, creating and posting social media updates, posting blogs to your site, keeping track of your schedule, reminding you what you need to be doing and where you need to be going.
I oversee other team members, coordinate with vendors, help you create new offerings, strategize with you on the operations and how they can be improved or made more efficient.
I have supported clients in planning, setting up and running events, handling customer support, and making sure things are running smoothly each day.
I am a coach, marketing strategist, and copywriter as well so you have many skillsets involved. And the things I don’t handle or know how to do? Those get handled as well because after 15 years in this business I have amazing resources to pull from and people to refer you to for those tasks that are super talented and get great results.
I don’t look at my work with you as doing the tasks and ending for the day. I look at it as a sort of partnership. I am always thinking of your business and how we can grow it.
And another thing…we have fun. Most of my clients have also become friends. Some have been with me for 8 years at this point. We chat about our families, our hobbies, and sometimes we even have heart to heart conversations.
I don’t believe in working together when personalities don’t mesh. That just makes for a miserable situation for everyone involved. I want to have fun, help you grow your business and truly get to know you. I care about my clients and what is happening in their lives. My clients never feel that it is strictly business because I don’t believe that.
There is more to life than just business and as your “purple unicorn” I want to help you free up time to enjoy that life you have and to be able to grow your business and reach your goals at the same time.
If you would like to chat about how I could support you in your business just reach out and schedule a 30 minute call with me at https://meetme.so/erinalli and let’s see if we are a fit to work together and change your business and your life together. I would love to be your “purple unicorn” if that’s what you are looking for;)
