Happy Virtual Assistants’ Day, VAs!
I have to confess that I only found out about Virtual Assistants in the last year or so, when a friend’s husband was telling me how he uses VAs to support his small business. I couldn’t quite comprehend how “office-based support” could be done away from the office (in the words of Vizzini in The Princess Bride, “inconceivable!”), but in recent months I’ve really become fascinated by the concept and just how much can be done (and how efficient it can really be!)
I’ve actually spent some time working as a VA to get a greater understanding of how it all works. It’s fascinating to see just what can be done away from the office with the right tools and technology (much of it free!). I’m writing about my experience and promise to share it with you all in the next couple of weeks.
Have you heard of Virtual Assistants before? Do you think it’s possible to do your job from home?
