What Is A Virtual Assistant?

My main goal with this business and blog is to provide you with the latest digital and social media tools to expand your business and community. Another goal is to bring you valuable information on services and options that can help you devote more time to your business, community and family. One of the best methods to accomplishing this: using a Virtual Assistant (VA). Over the next few weeks, I plan to bring you, thanks to my good friend Suzie from Ace Concierge, an in depth look at what a Virtual Assistant can do for you. Please read and pass along!


The phone is ringing, there are 3 proposals to be written, 75 emails requiring immediate attention, your best client hasn’t received his shipment, you need to reschedule a few appointments, and your spouse’s birthday is in two weeks. Sighing, you continue to add these new Monday morning additions to your already extensive To Do list. Frantically, you suddenly remember that you have a crucial business meeting with a potential client at Chez MustDo at noon, but if you can’t manage to tackle some of these urgent details, you realize you might have to forgo your luncheon appointment. This is your last and final opportunity with impress Mr. Maxell B. Wig.As the angst sets in, you have an Ah Ha! moment. You remembered a conversation you had with a virtual assistant. Rummaging through your desktop, papers are flying everywhere, you find it!! There she is! Your savior!!By definition, Virtual Assistants (VAs) are independent entrepreneurs providing a variety of professional administrative, concierge-type services, and technical support to clients. VAs use the most advanced means of communication, efficient time saving office applications, and web-based platforms to effectively deliver the end results, regardless of geographical location.Virtual Assistants are valuable assets to any organization or individual needing that extra pair of hands, eyes, AND ears. We are here to fully support your back office operations and help you to manage your personal tasks/To Do lists. With only 24 hours in a day, and the barrage of daily challenges and demands that are thrown in our laps, it is no wonder that the majority of us are highly stressed and needing assistance. Partnering with a VA is a sure win-win situation. You will not only save time, but you will reduce your stress levels, increase your productivity, enhance your time management, and find the time to focus ON your business rather than in it.Susan PoirierAce Concierge, LLCEnhancing YOUR life, one task at a time.www.aceconcierge.netwww.nhvirtualassistant.comwww.twitter.com/aceconciergeCome back for next week’s post, How To Use A Virtual Assistant
