In case you haven’t noticed, there are only so many hours in the day. And sometimes that “day” simply flies by leaving your with unfinished tasks, crabby clients, and a butt-load of stress on your part. 


This situation is a double-edged sword. It’s a blessing that your business has grown that much, but the working extreme hours and being consumed by worry? Not-so-much. 

Here’s the deal; you need help. All successful business folks didn’t get that way going it alone. You need a Robin for your Batman, a Cagney for your Lacey, Chewy for your Hans Solo (WOW, I really justed dated myself there).

The bottom line is; you need a virtual assistant to help with the more time-consuming or trivial (but necessary) tasks so you can free yourself up to do what you do best (run your biz and make moolah) Have you ever considered hiring online help for your additional administrative, technical or creative work?  Getting this help for your biz does not meanyou need to try to find room for another body in your office, or giving yourself one more person to worry about. Most well-trained VA’s not only work from their own home, but are “self-propelled.” They know what they need to do for you, and they do it. No babysitting, nagging, or hovering necessary.  

I hear you. You are mumbling “so what’s this gonna cost me?” An online virtual assistant works for and is paid an agreed upon rate for the support provided. Virtual assistants can bill by the task, project, hour or month. This is an agree and contract you and your VA need to work out together. Basically, for a simple fee, you will get all of the support of a full time employee, without the additional overhead costs.

What Kind of Tasks Could I Use A VA for?:
