What is a Virtual Assistant and would you like to use one for a Free Trial?
A virtual assistant (typically abbreviated to VA) are self-employed and provides administrative, technical, or creative (social) assistance to clients mainly from home but can work on premises for specific projects. Because virtual assistants are self-employed rather than employees, clients are not responsible for any employee-related taxes, insurance or benefits. Clients just pay for out of pockets expenses. Virtual Assistants usually work for other small businesses but can also support busy executives as well.
