What is a Virtual Assistant? 👩🏻‍💼

Every start up owner wants a rocking success in their business endeavours, but do they achieve success?

Here is a reality check: 9 out of 10 startups fail. This is a hard and bleak truth. And the main reasons for failures are the lack of right resources, scarcity of funds, no market need etc.

Successful startup heads understand this and hire the right people without increasing the operating cost. How do they do it?

Most of them hire virtual assistants to be more productive.

Now, you may be wondering what is a Virtual Assistant?

According to PC Magazine,

An individual who works at home performing administrative functions for clients. Virtual assistants (VAs) communicate with clients via phone, e-mail, instant messaging or some other collaborative software.”

Virtual assistants are not those who are sitting in an ivory tower – they are real people completing challenging tasks.

Leading companies, such as Buffer, Mozilla, Genuitec, etc., only hire distributed teams.

And you will be surprised to know that telecommuting for work climbs to 37% in the US. This means 37% US workers telecommunicate.

The point here is,

The trend of working remotely is catching up very fast.

“I think that in this day and age Virtual Assistants are invaluable – not only do they increase your productivity on the things you already have to do, they help you to focus on things you couldn’t focus on before (the things that are crucial to giving your business the edge over the competition and expanding it!). My wife and I both work from home, which is a big help, but when she or I are stacking too much on our proverbial plates we do have a few trusted VA’s that we reach out to for help on outsourceable stuff and it makes a world of difference.

The way businesses are starting up these days a lot of them have virtual teams spread across the world, not just in a central office, so having VAs help manage these remote teams is where we are in the modern workplace. The VAs get extra money and are able to work from their own homes for it, and remote agencies are able to increase their productivity and income as a direct result – it really is a win win for everyone. If you haven’t tried it, or are scared to try it, invest in a good VA and you’ll be surprised by the results”, says Web Designer Andy Sowards. 👩🏻‍💼
