What is a “Virtual Assistant”?

A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an Administrative Assistant that works out of their own office supporting small business owners, telecommuters and executives.

Virtual Assistants provide their own computer equipment and pay their own taxes. By using advanced technology and the Internet, Virtual Assistants can provide many of the same services as in-house administrative assistants.

A Virtual Assistant is an Independent Contractor, therefore, you do not pay payroll taxes or benefits.

Why a Virtual Assistant/Remote Worker is CONVENIENT?

A VA is available when you have work that needs to be done. A Virtual Assistant (or “VA”) can ensure that the entrepreneur or telecommuters who is working in a home office has access to all of the support benefits enjoyed by a business person in the corner office of a major corporation — without having to hire any employees!
