Who Can Become A Virtual Assistant?

Do you find yourself sitting idle for most part of the day after taking care of your elderly parents?
A long time friend of mine, is an experienced Accounting officer. She had to stay at home to tend to her sick parents. She is quite busy in the morning till 11.00 am. And then she is free till 04.00pm. She could no longer go out to work on a 8 to 9 hours job. I suggested her to become a Virtual Assistant. She was skeptical about my suggestion. But after looking at the way I work (3 to 4 hours everyday), she has started taking my suggestion seriously and asked me to help her to pursue this as a career. I am happy that she has started looking for jobs as a Virtual Assistant. Now she can make best use of her time by putting her accounting experience to work for her.

Are you newly married and in a new city?

From The Horse's Mouth

I requested my Clients to share their thoughts about me - Uma, the Virtual Assistant as well as Uma, an individual. They readily agreed to share their experiences with the Readers of my Blog. And they were all kind enough to spare a few minutes of their busy day to write a few lines here. I enjoy working with everyone of them. I am associated with some of them for more than five years.

Many of my clients referred my services to their friends and acquaintances. They keep giving me many opportunities to work with great Speakers, Authors, Entrepreneurs et al. I thank everyone of them for their continued support and trust in me.

Please read their comments below. Thanks - Uma.

How To Make the Best Use of a VA?

A Virtual Assistant can do the jobs that your Personal Assistant can do. Sometimes  a VA can also do the jobs that your PA can't do. 

Ever wished to have an assistant that could help you, while you go on a vacation?  Does your wife complain that you work on bed? Are you worried that you are not giving enough time to your kids? Do you find yourself working 24/7? Then its time to think about some solution. How about getting the help of a VA?

I am going to share what my clients felt and thought about hiring a VA, yeah, thats me, to help them. 

I work while you are on a vacation:

I am helping my client Alan Majer to move his documents about his GoodRobot to his dokuwiki page. And do you want to know where he is now? He is on a vacation with his family on the beach. And I would like to quote his words here, for you to get a feel of his vacationing: 

I am really happy that Alan could take time off, to be with his family. And he can be rest assured, that his work would be completed by the time he get back from his vacation. 

If you are planning to go on a vacation and if you still have some incomplete jobs, then please write to me. I will be glad to help you so that you spend time with your family and friends. 

I work while you sleep:

Most of my clients live in the other part of the globe. And that is a big advantage for me. Because I work at night (their time) and complete their job when they wake up. 

My Client Patrick Schwerdtfeger, the most inspiring Author and Speaker on Social Media Marketing, wrote," I provide instructions before I go to bed at night and then wake up to find the work complete."  Yes. It was a pleasure working with him. I worked at night (his time) so that he wake up to a mailbox swamped with many requests from followers. I have the greatest advantage of the time difference between, the part of the globe where I live and my clients' live. 

Do you have some compelling jobs that is depriving you of a good night's sleep? Send it to me and you have a peaceful night's sleep. 

I am the additional hands for you:

One of my client met with an accident while she was driving her bike and broke her wrist. She could still meet up with her clients and give presentations on her real estate business. But she wasn't able to customize her slides, so that she could give a presentation to her new corporate clients. I was glad to help her. 

Does your neck ache due to long hours of work? Go to bed and take rest. I can assure you that your job will be completed by the time you wake refreshed.

I learn new tools and tasks for my clients

Mark Peysha, Director of Tony Robbins Films, wrote,"She was always happy to learn a new skill and made sure everything she did was done in an excellent way. Highly recommended!”

Your may have to learn new tools to promote or to grow your business. But you also have to make use of your available time to concentrate on further developing your business. A VA can help you with learning new tools and promote your business for you. I am willing to learn new things and my client can vouch for it.
