First off – what is a Virtual Assistant?
A virtual assistant (typically abbreviated to VA, also called a virtual office assistant) is generally self-employed and provides professional administrative, technical, or creative (social) assistance to clients remotely from a home office. Because virtual assistants are independent contractors rather than employees, clients are not responsible for any employee-related taxes, insurance or benefits, except in the context that those indirect expenses are included in the VA’s fees. Clients also avoid the logistical problem of providing extra office space, equipment or supplies.
As an all-rounder virtual assistant and wordpress expert, I can help you with pretty much anything like an office admin / secretary could (except make coffee for you, teehee..) seriously, I have been around the block with an 8 year VA experience under my belt. I’ve worked with clients around the globe – from US, Canada, Australia, UK, Denmark… and with every client I worked with, there’s always something new to learn or experience and another skill to add to my portfolio.
So, if you’re wondering how I can help you – and in what areas of your business I can support you with, here’s a list of my skill set, it’s not exhaustive and I’m pretty flexy so sometimes you just need to ask and I may be able to do it for you (like a fairy with a magic wand!)
