USE SKILLED TALENT TO RUN AND
GROW YOUR BUSINESS, WITHOUT THE
HEADACHES OR THE COSTS.
Imagine spending the majority of your time doing what you
love most—speaking—with time left over to enjoy the fruits
of your labor. Meanwhile, the critical details for operating
and growing your business are handled expertly by talented
people you never see, require little or no management, and
cost far less than typical employees. You don’t even need to
provide office space or equipment for them.
Does this sound too good to be true? There are literally
thousands of such people, called Virtual Assistants (VAs),
who fit this description and are ready, willing and able to
help you run your business and achieve your desired business
goals. As “virtual” independent contractors, VAs can han-
dle any aspect of your business that does not require them
to be physically present at your office, such as bookkeeping,
designing and managing a Web site, scheduling meetings and
writing business correspondence.
