You need to hire a Virtual Assistant but are wondering what a VA can do for you. Instead of dragging your feet or sticking your head in the sand avoiding the process, begin to figure out how a VA can best serve your business.
Last week, I asked our Priority VAs to share how they were able to serve their clients. The response was overwhelming, so I thought I’d take 15 very practical tasks and share them with you.
