Since I opened my business in 2000 there have been many changes in our technology and how we run our businesses. Especially in the last several years, technology has taken a huge upswing forcing businesses to make many changes to their current business structure. This includes the administrative area in their business.
That is where Virtual Assistants come into the picture of this ever changing world we are in. Virtual Assistants are business owners! Therefore VA’s have one step above your average secretary or administrative assistant – VA’s understand how important it is to run a business smoothly, timely, and worldly.
The need to have an in-house employee run the administrative side of any business isn’t needed as much as it once was and can be quite expensive for the business owner. Remember from above – Virtual Assistants ARE business owners too! VA’s understand the importance in running a business which means they understand YOU, the business owner.
What about skills and knowledge of Virtual Assistants? VA’s do more than your average secretary did over 10 years ago. VA’s can now be your project manager, social media manager, office manager, personal assistant, professional organizer – I could go on and on. VA’s are continually educating and advancing their skills and knowledge to stay up to date with the growing technology. Note: In-house administrative employees only do what is necessary to fill the current business needs of their employer forcing business owners to continue to hire more employees for skills that one Virtual Assistant can do for you.
To sum it up here – Virtual Assistants ARE business owners, they understand the importance in running a business the right way, AND continue to grow in their skills and knowledge of this ever changing world to help business owners grow.
