Virtual Assistants “Demystified”

One of the many benefits of working with a Virtual Assistant (VA’s) is the ability to tap into services anywhere in the world. One could argue time zone differences could challenge this thought, however… 

Picture this: Send a piece of work to your VA in a different time zone and call it a night. When you hit the alarm for a 5-minute snooze the next morning, that very same piece of work is completed, ready to go, in your inbox. 

Investing quality time to on-board a VA effectively reaps many rewards.  VAs are an extension to your business, working behind the scenes on tasks you either consider mundane or that simply don’t spark your energy.   

Contrary to common thought, VAs aren’t just for Entrepreneurs or start-ups. Considering Deloitte’s Human Trends 2018 term “hybrid workforces”, why shouldn’t corporates in addition to small to medium business not consider VA’s? 

VAs are no different to an Independent Contractor or Consultant. They too have a niche, they too offer specialised skills. The difference? They don’t take up any office space and are armed with all the necessary tools to get the job done. They are resources one can reach out to in a moment of need, a service that can be ‘switched on or off’ depending on the frequency of the requirement. Moreover, the real beauty – pay for what you use, when you use it.   

Consequently, VA’s have to stay relevant.  The world is hyper-connected, information is readily available, competition around content is real so staying abreast of the newest and latest is key to business, even for a VA.
