Time and time again, I am asked the following questions about virtual assistants:
"What is a Virtual Assistant?"
"How can a Virtual Assistant help me?"
I have also heard people at networking meetings say, "I want to hire a virtual assistant to come in to my office to help me with my social media networking or handle administrative tasks." Actually, if the virtual assistant works in your office, then they aren't working virtually.
A virtual assistant is a highly skilled independent professional who owns and operates their own business, and works from his/her own fully-equipped office and provides administrative, technical and/or creative business support services for his/her clients.
Here's a video that gives a concise explanation about what a virtual assistant is and how a virtual assistant can help you. This video is also shown on the Virtual Assistant page in our website.
