Are you organized for the Holidays?
I know, I know, it drives me nuts when Holiday products start appearing in the stores at the end of the summer, but as soon as Fall rolls around it’s time to start thinking of your Holiday task list. And, if you don’t start thinking about it now you’re going to end up frazzled halfway through December and running around with your hair standing on end trying to get everything done at once! Doesn’t sound like fun, does it?
So, if you don’t work with a VA yet then using your Holiday task list as an initial project is a great way to test the waters. Or, if you already have a VA, here are some ideas of how you can utilize their time to help manage the upcoming season:
- Holiday card mailouts – this is the biggie on almost everyone’s list! Let your VA organize your contacts, create a mailing list, print envelopes/labels, print letters, stuff envelopes, and mail the whole package out to clients and/or colleagues.
- Holiday gifts – do you have some special clients or colleagues that you like to give something special to each year? Let your VA make the arrangements and have them delivered for you.
- Gift Research – want to get some special gifts but you’re not sure what? Your VA can research gifts, charities, gift baskets, wine, travel packages, or pretty much anything within your budget and give you list of ideas.
- Holiday Events – are you in charge of a holiday event and need some help? Let your VA help with bookings, manage guest lists, create place cards, menus, etc.
- Travel Bookings – let your VA make sure that your travel arrangements are booked well in advance.
- Donations – do you and/or your business like to make regular donations each Holiday season? Let your VA take care of it for you.
The list could go on and on – there are so many ways that your VA can save you time and money (and sanity!) during the busy Holiday season.
Delegate to your VA! We are here to make your life easier!
Does anyone have any other ideas of how a VA can help during the busy Holiday season? I’d love to hear about them…
