“I love bumping into people and finding out who they are and what they’re working on. You never know who you’re going to meet. Such encounters can be valuable: If you think about how your most important relationships began — with business partners, your spouse, with friends and mentors — the stories will almost all involve chance meetings. My curiosity about others and ability to connect with people have helped me to succeed — after all, if people don’t know who you are, they are not going to do business with you.”

“Many people think that an entrepreneur is someone who operates alone, overcoming challenges and bringing their idea to market through sheer force of personality. This is completely inaccurate. Few entrepreneurs — scratch that: almost no one — ever achieved anything worthwhile without help. To be successful in business, you need to connect and collaborate and delegate. Steve Jobs, the entrepreneur I most admire, is remembered as a talented maverick and a loner, but that’s simply wrong. The Apple co-founder turned his personal vision into reality with the help of trusted, talented teams. ”

Richard Branson makes a profound and important point here about business connections. He also points to the importance of delegation. How, as a business owner, are you supposed to market yourself more effectively to be heard and to connect to other business owners to share ideas if you are still stuck going it alone? Many business owners are now making the wise choice to outsource important tasks, such as telephone answering, in order to free up valuable time and ensure they are not still running around doing jobs that could be easily delegated to a virtual receptionist.

The benefits of employing a virtual receptionist are many. We conduct all the tasks that an on-site receptionist would e.g. call answering, handling queries, taking orders and updating diaries, but with less responsibility, effort and cost on your part. Moreover we are experts in the field of customer service and so you can rest assured that your customers are receiving a professional and friendly service from your capable and trusted team, regardless of the fact that we are remotely based.

Importantly, you will have more time to connect and collaborate. As Richard puts it; “To achieve your goals, you need to be on the lookout for the opportunity to make connections wherever you go. Welcome chance encounters and opportunities to dream up outlandish plans.”
