What is a virtual assistant?
Let's start off with some quick facts about virtual assistants (or "VA's" as you will often see written online & in this post). VA's are administrative staff who typically work out of their homes (virtually) & who have a vast array of skills that have been acquired over time or in previous employments. Typically a VA will have multiple clients and work with multiple businesses. Every VA has a slightly different niche, so it is important to realize that not every VA will be a good fit for your business.
Overwhelmed, stressed & tired? Want to hire a VA but can't decide what to delegate?
You're not alone! Many business owners aren't sure where to start when they hire help for their business. They are so overwhelmed, the sheer thought of trying to discuss their needs makes them top out with stress.
So, given that this is something I hear from many of the people who inquire about my services, I thought I would try to help by creating a list of tasks that a virtual assistant can help you with to give you a good start.
