What is a Virtual Assistant?

VA - Virtual Assistant:  A highly skilled independent professional who remotely provides administrative, technical and/or creative business support services.

We operate out of our own offices.  This helps each client to focus on their businesses because they don't have to provide a cubicle, desk, computer, phone or the health benefits  to anyone of us that is an entrepreneur.  We are self-employed individuals and get paid by contract.  

Each one of us has a variety of special skills to operate offices.  Some of us are General VAs that do tasks such as typing, filing, organizing, answering phones and basically doing simple office projects.  Other VAs like myself, have many skills that enable us to be capable of handling all kinds of special projects such as Translations, Creating Websites, Flyers, processing Spreadsheets, powerpoint presentations, making appointments, travel arrangements etc.  These are basically the kinds of projects we handle.  

Other VAs like to really specialize such as Real Estate VAs, Bookkeeping VAs, Translation VAs, Legal VAs etc.  We are quite function and keep learning and training to get better in our results for clients.
