Got questions? Don’t worry, I have answers.

What is a virtual assistant?

A virtual assistant or VA is an independent contractor that provides administrative, creative, and/or technical support to business owners, entrepreneurs, and various other professionals. VAs work from their own offices and use their own equipment and software.

Why would I need a virtual assistant?

A VA can help with any task or project that is usually handled by an on-site employee. We can take care of smaller, menial tasks to give you more time to run your business, or manage larger projects so you’re not left micromanaging. You get instant support from a highly skilled individual, but only when you need the services. Using a virtual assistant cuts down on your overhead as well as any employee benefits, taxes, and insurance you would normally be responsible for. You pay only for the time we spend working on your project or tasks.

Would I consider you an employee?

No, you would not. VAs are independent contractors¬†that are only paid for the hours required to perform each task. That being said, you do not pay for breaks, lunches, or vacations. You are also not responsible for any employee-related taxes or benefits. Here’s a link that further describes the difference.

How much do you charge?
My general hourly rate is $35 per hour. As mentioned on my services page, I also offer retainer packages. Those rates can be discussed during a free consultation.
Who are your clients?

My client base spans across a number of industries, from business owners to event planners. I’ve worked with business coaches, authors, marketing experts, and professional organizers.

There are no bounds to the clientele that I accept, but rather the projects and tasks with which they need assistance.

How do we communicate and work together?

I make use of email, telephone, and Skype, which grants screen-sharing capabilities as well a video conferencing option. I also utilize a number of various project management tools that help keep track of all ongoing projects and tasks with the ability to add comments and reminders.

Upon entering into an agreement, we’ll determine the best methods of communication for your particular needs.

How do you ensure confidentiality?

Your privacy is very important to me and I make sure to take all necessary precautions to ensure that all data remains secure. All passwords will be stored using LastPass so that they are encrypted and remain safe.
