5 Ways Business Owners Can Make More Time

Who wouldn’t want a few extra hours in a day? Especially a business owner like you, who could achieve so much more with it! We know the Admin Hub ladies have often wished for a Bernard’s Watch to stop time for a little while. But since pausing time isn’t possible just yet, you need to get a little more creative if you want the extra time. As Virtual Assistants, we know a thing or two about efficiency, so we wanted to share some tips to find some extra time in […]

Change Your Attitude, Change Your Results

You know the phrase, you are what you eat? That’s true in business too. OK maybe not literally, but the idea that your approach to something dictates the results you’ll get is something that’s been playing out for years, with thousands of business owners falling foul of it. Often they will take the approach of ‘if it isn’t broken don’t fix it’, preferring to focus on new things rather than changing the things they already do, But we believe this is wrong. Businesses should always be striving to improve their […]

How A VA Can Help You Get Your Pink Back

Did you know that flamingos aren’t always pink? They’re born as these fluffy little grey birds, which you could honestly mistake for any other baby bird. As they grow and mature, their soft down makes way for those iconic bright pink feathers. What can we say, we love flamingos! But the most interesting thing we learned about them is something we learnt just last week. Flamingos lose their pink colouring at one other point in their life, and you’ll never guess what it is. A Flamingo Biology Lesson As we […]

Your Digital Spring Clean Checklist

It’s April, and you know what that means? It’s time to throw open your windows and get your spring dean on! In the past were done checklists to help you spina dean both your home and your business, so this year we wanted to do something a little different. Instead of trying to tackle everything at once, we’re going to focus on your digital side. Computers are black holes of digital clutter. Because the space just expands to fit whatever we need, we tend to just put stuff in them. […]

The Art Of Admin Life

Admin is definitely a skill, and not one that everyone naturally possesses. But it is one that anyone can learn if they’re willing to put in the time and effort and understand how their brain works. A big part of admin is learning how to balance things, so you need to make sure you don’t spend so much time doing your admin that you never get anything else done. For some business owners, this means having dedicated admin time during the week, for others, it’s spreading it out little and […]

5 Reasons De-Cluttering Is Good For Your Mental Health

We’ve all had that moment when we look around a say ‘how did it get this bad?’ Clutter can easily snowball into something out of control – whether you were ill one day and couldn’t face tidying up or have simply been so busy that sorting out is the last thing on your mind. But living in a cluttered environment can have some surprising negative effects on your mood, your attitude and your general mental health – and only a good de-clutter and organising can put it right. Getting rid […]

Why A VA Should Be On Your Christmas List

Can we all just take a moment to agree that 2022 has been a fucking hard year? It’s been challenge after challenge, obstacle after obstacle and the fact that you’ve made it through in one piece is frankly amazing. And we’ve all definitely earned some time off over Christmas. But if you run a business, then taking some time off over the festive period can feel difficult, and it can make you feel really anxious over the whole holiday. Which, let’s be honest, no one wants. So how can you […]

Audio Typing – DIY or VA?

Audio typing (also know as transcription) is the art of taking an audio recording and turning it into text. Seems simple, yes? You just listen to the audio, type what you’re hearing and it’s all done, quick and easy. And while technically that is true, the reality is much different. At Your Admin Hub a lot of our work is audio typing, and it mostly comes from people who tried to do it themselves, and then realised it’s not as simple as it sounds. Nor, unfortunately, is it as quick! […]

Is Doing Your Own Admin Good For You?

Are you one of those people who absolutely dreads doing admin? In fact, you actively avoid it where you can, letting it pile up until it becomes this monstrous task you have to dedicate days or even weeks to fixing? Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone! The fact is that some people just aren’t good at admin tasks. Their brains aren’t wired for it, and while they can complete the tasks, it’s a difficult and not very enjoyable process. But why is that, and how can you get around it […]
