What is a Virtual Assistant?

If you’re reading this you’re either wondering if a Virtual Assistant is a right fit for your business, or you’re someone interested in becoming a VA yourself!

There are over 67 million freelancers in the US and at this rate, over 50% of the US workforce will be virtual professionals by 2028.

There’s never been a better time to introduce virtual assistance to your life.

What’s a VA?

A virtual assistant is a remote worker who adds value to your business in a variety of ways.

Some VAs offer administrative help like scheduling and data entry. Others offer high-value expertise in things like marketing and content.

It’s important to understand that every VA is unique, and how you implement VA work into your business is what makes it valuable.

Should You Hire a Virtual Assistant?

In order to figure out if a VA is the right fit for you, you’ll need to first identify what makes your business run.

As a business owner you have a few high-value tasks that you MUST do yourself.

You also have a high number of tedious low-income tasks that have to be completed, but certainly don’t need to be completed by you.

This is how you pinpoint your need for a VA - when your time is being wasted on menial tasks instead of high impact ones.

Should You Become a Virtual Assistant?

If you’re thinking about becoming a VA you have to ask yourself 3 questions first.

1. Do I have good time management skills?

2. Do I have a skill that businesses need?

3. Do I want to be my own boss?

If the answer to all of these are yes, then you’re a perfect fit to be a virtual assistant mentor.

A 2021 Businesswire study predicts that the freelance virtual assistant market will grow by $4 billion between 2021 and 2025.

There’s no better time to take your shot.

If you’re interested in becoming a VA or hiring one for your business, make sure to book a consultation.
