    Virtual assistant?

    jones Newbie

      Hi everyone. I was wondering if someone could help me out?

       

      Recently I have been having several problems with my assistant right now, I guess that having her as full-time can get pretty boring sometimes. I am looking into some virtual assistants. I would like to know what people think about virtual assistants? I've heard some pretty great things about them and it's pretty much an hourly kind of thing. Has anyone ever used one?

       

      Thanks guys!

          Have you considered hiring someone who would work remotely or maybe that is what you are thinking of?  If so, you would need a detailed, clear job description for this new employee.  I have worked remotely for many years and enjoy working this way.  This involves a level of trust on both parties.

           

          Having meetings from time to time would be a must. I would think weekly at first and then see how things are going. It can work and can work well.  But both employee and employer must be truthful with one another.

           

          Communication is one of the keys and can develop into something you can be pleased about.
