You know when you can barely keep your head above water?  You wish you had some to help you make it through the day let alone another week? I have just the answer for you… a Virtual Assistant.

A virtual assistant essentially takes on anything you don’t have time or the skill to do. Some tasks that a VA can support you on include updating your website and related web collateral; assist with your bookkeeping and invoicing;  manage your marketing and public relations; edit and write your materials; manage your contacts and calendar; social media and blog posting; event assistance. We also look to take on anything you do not have the time or skill to do!

Here are some strategies for creating your own virtual team:

  • Ask the right questions to determine the best Virtual Assistant for your needs including, “What’s your time zone?” “What is the typical turnaround time on projects?” “Is there a rush rate?” “Do you offer packages for your services?” “Do hours roll over monthly?”
  • Determine what can be delegated. One tool is to create a list of all the things ONLY you can do and then assigning the other tasks to your VAs.
  • Learn how to communicate with your VAs. Keep them engaged and plugged in to your needs as well as their needs, so each of you can build a relationship of trust and mutual benefit.

    Thanks Dortha;
    So many entrepreneurs need a VA but they don’t know that they need it or they know they need it but don’t know where to find someone! Thanks for clarifying for everyone.
