Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Virtual Assistant?
A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an independent business owner who provides various professional business support to clients in long-term collaborative relationships. Your Virtual Assistant provides the support you need whether you are in or out of the office. Even though not located physically in your office, a VA uses technology to be available to you and provide you whatever you may need. A Virtual Assistant gets to know you and your business so that you can free up your time and energy to focus on the things that only YOU can do in your business while they take care of other items you need assistance with.
What are your office hours?
I work at the times when I can be the most productive, which means that most of my day is spent working during conventional business hours. That being said, I’m generally available all day Mon-Fri and always get the job done when promised. If you have special needs regarding availability, let me know!
What is included in your service??
Packages are all inclusive which means that consulting time, necessary phone calls, and email support is included in the price. There are no hidden fees!

What is the turnaround time on assignments?
Most Virtual Assistants have several retainer clients that they work for each month and are adept at juggling multiple priorities. If you decide to partner with me, you’ll be asked about the deadlines you have for various projects and tasks. This way, I can prioritize and projects will be ready on time. If for any reason I’m unable to do something within the timeframe that you need, I’ll let you know up front so that other arrangements can be made.
Who would work with a Virtual Assistant?
Virtual Assistants work with smart, successful people of all kinds — anyone who wants to take their business to the next level but not sacrifice their lifestyle in the process. Generally, I work with solo-preneurs that may not be ready to take on a part-time or full-time employee or doesn’t want the hassle of having an employee in their home/business. Or, small business owners that needs a specific skillset to complement theirs. The benefits are enormous to almost anyone who’s busy and needs support.
Why should I outsource the financial pieces of my business?
Bringing someone onboard who is not only familiar with working with financials, but extremely well-versed in them, will help to move your business forward. I can create quick useful reports and can help to analyze the items in your business that you could use some help with. Stressing about how to create any type of financial plan for your business? Bring me on to help create your goals and put ease into your daily operations. This allows you to focus on why you started your business in the first place, and continue to grow your business without worrying about the mundane tasks that you may not particularly enjoy.
Why choose me?
There is no need for you to chase deadlines, I do what I say I’m going to do, and I care! If it’s not working out? There is no need to rehire me. That being said… you’ll always want to!
