April is stress awareness month and that's something we can help with!

Stress Awareness Month falls in April and this year’s theme, set by the Mental Health Foundation, is ‘anxiety’. 

All of us feel anxious sometimes, maybe we feel worried, tense or fearful.  These are normal responses to certain situations. 

But what if anxiety becomes overwhelming and interferes with our daily lives? What if it affects our health, our relationships, our work performance? What if it stops us from pursuing our goals and dreams?

That's when anxiety becomes a problem that needs to be addressed.

Stress and Business

Those of us who run out businesses have all been stressed at some point. We’d be lying if we said we hadn’t. 

There is the stress of day to day running, finance, getting sales, keeping up your social media presence, maintaining good customer service… and so much more.

And sometimes, we may feel like we have to do it all by ourselves. We may think that asking for help is a sign of weakness or incompetence. We may worry about losing control or compromising our quality standards.

But the truth is, we can't do it all alone. And we don't have to.

One of the ways you can reduce your stress and anxiety as a business owner is by outsourcing your telephone calls. At The Virtual Business Centre we are a professional team of virtual receptionists who can handle your calls with care and efficiency.

Ringing mobiles or your landline (if you have one), can interfere with meetings and far more, completely stress you out, so much so that you could quite easily miss important calls when you turn off your phone to complete a necessary task. Outsourcing your telephone calls to us can be the answer.

Finding the right team who will answer your calls professionally, who know how your business works and which calls are important can help to reduce your stress. We can take messages, book appointments, answer queries, process orders, and more. We can tailor our services to suit your needs and preferences.

If you are using my team, you can take that holiday you desperately need to maintain your physical and mental health, secure in knowledge that your calls will be taken, and either dealt with there and then, or you have a list of callers with their queries, who you can contact on your return. 

For those businesses where you are the person providing the service, having to take calls can actually interfere with the smooth running of that service. Again, my team will be able to answer calls, and book in meetings, and jobs - whatever your need, diminishing your stress of losing work.

By outsourcing your telephone calls to us, you can free up your time and energy to focus on what matters most: growing your business and enjoying your life.

Act now, take away your anxiety and give us a call to see if we can help you.
