I love finding articles that simply and easily describe what a Virtual Assistant is and what they can do for you and your business; if you have one. Virtual Assistants can really free up a great deal of your personal and professional time. Once you know what you want to off-load, the right virtual assistant or team of assistants, can help you clear cluttery tasks that away your time from more valuable efforts.
I enjoyed Stefan’s article and thus I am sharing here. Stefan tends to use oDesk as his article indicates and it has it merits, but from a VA perspective versus a client needing a VA, I prefer and have 5 star rating on Guru.com. I find that on Guru.com the VA providing services is able to manage better their bids and income. On oDesk.com and Freelancer.com there are upfront membership fees regardless if you get a job. On Guru, you only pay them, if you get a job and get paid. I also really like their escrow program. I have never experienced a problem getting paid as I have with other sites.
I hope you will take a quick read of Stefan’s article, I almost couldn’t have said it better.
