  3. 3. What’s A Virtual Assistant<br />This title is a common title which is used always on every Virtual Assistant ‘s Website., and each of us have a different definition, but we end up with the same conclusion. ‘WHAT’S A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT’.<br />My definition is not the same as another VA, “Action Jackson” a VA located in New Mexico. Her definition is: <br />A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an independent entrepreneur providing administrative, creative and/or technical services. Utilizing advanced technological modes of communication and data delivery, a professional VA assists clients in his/her area of expertise from his/her own office on a contractual basis.&quot;In a traditional office, they are known as Administrative Assistants, but in the online community, they are known as Virtual Assistants. VAs work from their own offices and use their own equipment Virtual Assistant&apos;s provide services to businesses, entrepreneurs, executives, and individuals. Assignments are usually communicated through e-mail, phone, fax, or mail.  Whatever the project, information is easily transferred between client and Virtual Assistant.<br />Copyright 2009 UNIQUELY40, LLC --Uniquely40 Logo™<br />
  4. 4. What’s A Virtual Assistant Cont’d<br />My definition is quite similar : <br />Virtual Assistants are entrepreneurs they are highly skilled in their profession and  are able to have a enormous impact on the productivity of those they work with.  We were traditionally known as secretaries, administrative assistants, executive assistants or bookkeepers. But with today’s technology the world is a much smaller place, and where more professionals are working from their homes or in satellite offices, the former assistant has become virtual and thanks to the Internet, worldwide. In today’s business world, a virtual assistant can assist you with Web design, accounting, press release, real estate, resumes, SEO, grant writing, networking, etc, etc.  The list is endless.<br /> <br />Copyright 2009 UNIQUELY40, LLC --Uniquely40 Logo™<br />
  5. 5. What’s A Virtual Assistant Cont’d<br />Virtual Assistants can be a long term collaborative partner with your business, a provisional solution to staffing or the per diem solution. We are the original outsourcers -- we are called upon to tackle assignments in our field of expertise.  We are not temps or employees; we are, however, business owners and professionals.  <br /> Virtual Assistants works independently away from an traditional office setting; almost every task that can be accomplished in the traditional office can be completed virtually.  They work from their own office, and provide home, small and large business, executives, entrepreneurs, solo-preneurs, and busy individual the back office or administrative support that they need.<br /> Microsoft Encarta Dictionary definition of a Virtual Assistant is, &quot;long distant assistant -- somebody who uses a computer and phone links to work from a distance as a personal assistant to somebody else&quot;.<br /> A Virtual Assistant can work from another state or another country, We are WORLDWIDE.<br />Copyright 2009 UNIQUELY40, LLC --Uniquely40 Logo™<br />
  6. 6. The Prefect Partner For Your Business<br />Copyright 2009 UNIQUELY40, LLC --Uniquely40 Logo™<br /><ul><li>You don't have to share your computer, or set up a second computer, for the assistant to use. A VA uses his own equipment and computers. In addition, you don't have to set up an extra desk in your office for an assistant.
  7. 7. Instead of having a fixed schedule of hours each week, with a VA you only pay for the hours you use.
  8. 8. You can hire a VA to work a specific numbers of hours per month on a retainer which guarantees availability. Some VAs work on a per-project or per-hour basis as well.
  9. 9. You can find VAs with specific skill sets, from certified QuickBooks specialists to those with graphic, internet, marketing, or technical skills.</li></li></ul><li>The Prefect Partner For Your Business<br /><ul><li>VAs own their own business, so they know what it's like to be self-employed.
  10. 10. A VA works as a consultant, not as an employee. Therefore, you won't have to pay employment taxes or benefits for your VA. (It's critical that you understand the government rules about employees versus sub-contractors; in the USA, check out the IRS website for the rules</li></ul>Copyright 2009 UNIQUELY40, LLC --Uniquely40 Logo™<br />

  14. 14. You Make Money When You Partner With A VA<br /> YOUR SECOND IN COMMAND<br />A VA will allow the Business owner the opportunity to spend more time negotiating for more business and also networking to gain more client. Think of a VA as your Aspirin that will heal your headache.<br />A VA can become the second in command for their clients. When the trust grows over time, the VA starts to work with the clients customers directly which in turns help their clients make even more money and allow them to grow their business. <br />Trying a VA may be the best thing for your business whether it is small, large or if your Entrepreneur, Solo-preneur, etc.. Your attention will be focus less on your usual busy work and more on growing your business.<br />Copyright 2009 UNIQUELY40, LLC --Uniquely40 Logo™<br />
