A VA or Virtual Assistant, is a self-employed administrative or personal assistant who works remotely (usually at home). A VA provides professional administrative, technical, or creative/social assistance to clients remotely. Your Virtual Assistant is skilled and able to manage multiple tasks that are vital to the running of your Business, tasks that may be time-consuming or repetitive. In Short, a Virtual Assistant is someone a lot of busy professionals just can't do without.
ARE THERE BENEFITS TO HIRING A VA?
With a Virtual Assistant there's no such thing as paid down time because a VA invoices only for the exact time spent working on your projects and supporting your business. There's no need to supply a Virtual Assistant with a computer or other expensive office equipment because a professional Virtual Assistant operates a fully functional office. And, as an independent contractor, a Virtual Assistant handles their own taxes and benefits. There is no additional cost to you beyond the actual rate at which you contract your virtual service provider.
By hiring a Virtual Assistant, you're cutting overhead and increasing productivity because a VA works for you only if and when you require it. And, because a Virtual Assistant is skilled at providing virtual administrative services there is no training period, so you have more time for your own clients.
NEVER PAY for lunch breaks, sick or holiday pay, or non-productive hours because a VA is an independent contractor working from their own office only if and when you require assistance.
WHO CAN USE A VA?
Any busy individual or professional who needs to take control of their time, precious time that they could be using to add more value to their business/personal life.
