Kelly and I were thrilled to be quoted in the December issue of Home Business Magazine – Hot Businesses to Start in 2013 … http://homebusinessmag.com/digitaleditions/dec_2012/ page 16).
What did Home Business Magazine say about starting a Virtual Assistant Business?
Here are a few excerpts from the article that we were quoted in:
With more companies working with fewer employees business are flocking to find the right virtual assistant for their team. Virtual Assistants work as independent contractors from their home offices. They use leading edge technology to communicate work assignments via the Internet, e-mail, or disk transfer. Traditional methods such as regular mail and overnight shipping are also used.
While most Virtual Assistants will never meet their clients, it is not unusual to find a VA providing pickup and delivery service in their local area. Most Virtual Assistants now realize the amazing power of the Internet, and their client base spans globally. A Virtual Assistant partners with his/her client and learns about the client’s business to become a trusted and valued member of the team. At the same time, the Virtual Assistant only charges for time on tasks, so it ultimately saves the client in overhead expenses while affording them the necessary time to take care of more business.
Virtual Assistant services include: publicity and marketing, article and press release writing and distribution, social networking updates, legal, medical, and general transcription, bookkeeping, web design, and administrative tasks.
