Recently LinkedIn Influencers shared their must have tools and Richard Branson cited his Assistant, as his secret weapon
A great assistant is like an extra memory pack and the more you use them the greater an asset they will be. For example, rather than typing his own emails, Richard Branson saves time by dictating them which means that Helen can always be 100% in touch with what’s going on.
So, while many people attempt to use technology to make assistants a thing of the past they may be missing a lot by trying to go it alone. Productivity increases when you work with an assistant. They can manage your time better, liaise with your clients, manage your projects – the list is endless. They’re not a productivity gadget, they are THE productivity asset.
