RUN YOUR BUSINESS THE RIGHT WAY—THE PERFECT TOOL RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU
Published: February 26, 2021
Have you ever tried eating ramen with a spoon, or perhaps, your bare hands?
You’ll still get to eat your noodles, but can you imagine the mess?
The funny thing is we will never choose a spoon or our bare hands when eating ramen. On the other hand, we automatically, without even thinking, pick a fork or a pair of chopsticks. Why? We know that it’s the right tool to use.

Definitely, our bare hands or a spoon can be used for eating but it is not the right utensil for eating ramen.
You see, efficiency will only come if we pick the right tool for each task. Thus, we can enjoy what we do and gain good results.
The same principle applies when running a business.
Business leaders have the access to all the tasks of their business. They can choose to do them all by themselves, using their bare hands, so to speak. Will they be an effective tool?
Well, they can probably perform the tasks. But, will they be the most efficient one? No! A business leader is not the right tool in performing non-core tasks. However, it is a leader’s role to find the right tool and use it skillfully. What, then, should a business leader consider when finding the right tool?
Each Business Is Unique
A business leader’s primary role is to design, develop and implement business strategies. And an effective leader should focus on this role.
On the contrary, non-core tasks that are still important to keep a business running smoothly should be delegated to a trusted assistant. But then again, can you choose just any person available to be your assistant? Just like how we choose the utensils that will let us eat our favorite dish with ease, business owners carefully pick the right assistant. Why? Because each business is built differently led by leaders with different approaches.
Consider this: Either a fork or a pair of chopsticks can be used to eat ramen but why do some prefer the latter rather than the former?
For two simple reasons. First, they find it easier to pick up and hold the noodles than with a fork. And second, they are skilled in using a pair of chopsticks. They have the knowledge in using the tool.
On the other hand, there are those who prefer the use of a fork. And because they are skilled in using it, they still enjoy the ramen that they are eating. You see, both are the right tools for eating ramen but the skills of the user played a huge factor on what tool turned out to be more efficient for them.
The same goes with a virtual assistant. Hiring just any virtual assistant will not mean efficiency because each business is built differently. A business should not adjust based on who an owner will hire as an assistant but the assistant must fit the business design. Thus, a challenge arises. A business leader must find the perfect fit.
How do you find the “perfect” virtual assistant for you?
Finding the Right Tool
Search. Hire. Train. This is what most business owners do. Are you one of them? If it doesn’t work out, you can always repeat the process. But doing so, you’ve already spent more time searching for someone to help you with your business than actually running it. Can you imagine the back-log because you’re too busy finding help?
Well, most business leaders have found a way to avoid going through this “recruitment drama”.
They chose to outsource their virtual assistant unique for their business requirements.
