1. What is a virtual assistant?
A Virtual Assistant, also known as a VA, is a skilled professional who assists other professionals from a remote location. VAs are contractors, not employees. They can be contracted for small, one-time only projects, or large projects that span several months. VAs save their clients time and money by providing their own equipment, training, and office space.
2. How will a virtual assistant benefit me and my organization?
Contract a VA and you’ll have more time to develop your organization, spend with your family, or to just relax. Our virtual assistant services help you reclaim the time you lose each day on administrative tasks. You free up your valuable time to focus on more important things – like running your business!
When you contact a virtual assistant, you’ll save money. Virtual assistance saves you money because VAs work only when you need them. You pay only for what you need done and only when you need it done. You do not pay for benefits, holiday time, overtime or sick days. They supply their own office, equipment, software and expertise.
