Getting started with
a Virtual Assistant

 

Any entrepreneur or start-up knows that time is money, especially when both are running low. In a world where a million things happen every day, certain mundane tasks often get pushed to the side. That can lead to decreased productivity and failed strides when the rubber meets the road.

This is where a virtual assistant comes in.

Like the name implies, a virtual assistant (VA) is a contact made over the internet that assists in day-to-day tasks. Yes, like an assistant, only virtual!

Furthermore, these assistants don’t just help your business run smoothly, they help your life run smoothly. Whether it’s sending a thank you card to a friend or researching potential investors, a virtual assistant can do just about anything. They take charge of not only the day-to-day business tasks, but can even take hold of day-to-day personal tasks so you can keep focused on what’s at hand. They can send flowers, arrange appointments, or even just schedule an Uber so you can go from one venture to the next without a single hiccup.

However, it is just about anything.

There are certain limitations to what they are allowed to do legally, and what the internet allows them to do. Certain tasks are perfect, but others can be deemed rude or could be legally wrong to ask. Much like a physical assistant, there are certain limitations to tasks that can be performed and often a virtual assistant cannot take the place of an employee. They can, however, take some tasks that other employees would be doing in order to spread the work load and make sure those employees are focused on growing the business instead of focusing on upkeep.

With all of that, it’s hard to pin down what exactly a virtual assistant does because they often do so much, barring only a handful of limitations. While these limits are in place, there is certainly a grey area that most virtual assistants can meddle in, often performing certain tasks instead of full-out jobs.

So let’s start at the top to figure out what a virtual assistant does, how that can impact your business, and where you can find one.
