Frequently Asked Questions for a Remote Assistant
WHAT IS A VA? (VIRTUAL OFFICE ASSISTANT)
A virtual assistant provides professional administrative, technical, and creative assistance remotely. A VA doesn’t come to the office but may work in another city or state. With technology, you stay connected and communicate via email, computer, and phone no matter where either is located.
WHAT IF I CAN’T AFFORD FULL-TIME HELP?
No problem! That’s my target market. Many in this industry haven’t transitioned to a full-time executive assistant but still need administrative office needs. I can work out a custom package that meets your needs and budget. Schedule a discovery session, and we can discuss how we can reach your goals.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HIRING A VA?
Your company will benefit immediately because you won’t have to train me. I have product/service knowledge in the landscaping industry.
Time is valuable in this seasonal industry. I can help free your time during those crucial hours, brainstorm ideas, giving you the chance to work ON your business, not IN the details of your business.
My clients avoid the logistical problem of providing extra office space equipment, internet, or supplies. You pay for guaranteed 100% productive work (no downtime or breaks). I am a subcontractor and pay all my taxes and benefits.
WHAT SECURITY MEASURES HAVE YOU TAKEN TO KEEP MY PRIVATE INFORMATION PROTECTED?
I have attended cyber security classes at my local community college sponsored by the Small Business Administration and attended webinars online. I have also employed a computer technician to make sure all my computers are up to date and secure. You can read about my cyber security and privacy statement here.
