A virtual assistant (VA) is a person who provides support services to other businesses from a remote location, typically from home. Virtual assistants are especially useful for entrepreneurs that are starting their business or have an existing business (either physical or online) and need support with various tasks but don’t have the means or want to bring on permanent staff. In my case, I can provide support but also advise you on what may be the most suitable administrative options for you.
The VA can help a business owner with taking care of the duties that a business owner doesn’t have time to do, like mundane paperwork, bookkeeping, managing inboxes, schedules, travel, customer service, and much more.
The best part about working with a VA is that you get support from a highly skilled person, only when you need it. VA’s work as independent contractors, so you only end up paying for the time the VA spends working on your projects/tasks. No need to pay taxes or benefits, like you would for a permanent employee.
