Much of the documentation on Millennials, the 76 million people born between 1980 and 2002, is negative. Yet, I’m here to tell you they’re exactly the tool you need if you are ready to take your business to the next level.
As a Millennial myself, I’ve avoided identifying as one due to the negative press. But, look closer and you’ll find the positive. According to this EOS® Worldwide Blog written by Clark Neuhoff, there are some themes that emerge that are extremely beneficial to business owners and leaders. Themes such as a desire for passion and meaning, work-life balance, projects with clear expectations, creativity and frequent and regular feedback are common Millennial traits. If you’re not familiar with the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®), you’ll soon learn those are all traits that pair well with the System.
If you’re a business owner already using EOS® or you’re furiously googling it now, get ready. You want a Millennial on your team. Given the right framework and leadership, your Millennial employee can free you to do the work you love.
A core value at AssistPro™ is “Delegate everything but genius.” We live by this because we believe every business owner can only be his or her best if allowed to do the work that is their genius, their passion that prompted them to start a business in the first place. If an entrepreneur or solopreneur is drowning in managing email, scheduling prospect presentations or organizing financial records, they aren’t spending time growing their business. If you’re too busy working in your business, I can promise you aren’t working on it.
An AssistPro™ Managing Assistant is the figurative Millennial (some literally are) you’re looking for to grow your business. All of our Managing Assistants are EOS® trained and provide Solopreneurs, Entrepreneurs, and Business Coaches with dynamic, unconventional, and affordable admin support. Our Managing Assistants understand the process needed to allow you to confidently step away from the daily tasks that bog you down. The Millennial spirit, that desire to contribute to the growth and success of a business, to find creative solutions, to have more than just a job, is a core value we search for in every Managing Assistant, no matter their age.
When you understand the benefit the Millennial spirit can provide you and your business, you’ll be thankful you added one to your team.
