What Is This Virtual Assistance I Keep Hearing About?

Ok. So I happened to be checking on my linkedin profile and came across this article that explains the term "Virtual Assistant" and what we do.  
It sounds cliché, but as an online business owner there really is never enough time in the day to get everything done that you need in order for your business to succeed and expand.
Sooner or later you reach a point in your business where you cannot do it all.
In order to expand and survive in an online world you need a team. Not just any team, a team of professionals that have a sincere interest in your success. Someone that shares the same drive and motivation you have as a business owner.
Virtual Assistance is taking the world by storm. It is the fastest growing legitimate stay at home business on the planet today!
Imagine what you could do with just 1 extra hour a day let alone multiple hours in the day? By delegating your daily time consuming tasks to a reliable Virtual Assistant (VA), you will gain back valuable time that you can now spend more productively networking and expanding your business, and ultimately your bottom line as well. Not to mention freeing up your time for family and friends that don't get to see and experience you as much as they would like to.
Are you ready to begin delegating?    Because it's exhausting being a team of one!
Teamwork
A VA can pretty much do any job you need them to. Some VAs only do general administrative tasks, while other VAs specialize in technology. These are the VAs that have taken the time to invest in their business by educating themselves with the different technical software programs that are used on a daily basis. It is possible to find a VA that can take on any given aspect of your business that you don't have time for, don't feel qualified to handle, or just don't like to do.
Virtual Assistants are entrepreneurs, sub-contractors, and business owners, they are not necessarily employees. There are no employee related expenses, and you end up paying only for the work you need done. There is no downtime. VAs are cost effective and typically work remotely from their own home or office so there is no need for you to find a space for them to work.
VAs are knowledgeable and proficient in many areas that you & your staff may not be. They are able to streamline processes and make your business run more efficiently.
