Years ago before Virtual Assists were not common words I used the following on a no longer in existence website. It was back in the days before I worked with 1and1. A classmate of mine has a small business of designing websites etc for small businesses & local booster clubs, churches, etc. Troy was my coach for a few years and let me learn on his servers. Troy willingly let me take what I learned working with a corporate Intranet website including HTML coding & play until my heart was content..
What is a Remote Access Office Assistant?
The Small Business Administration (SBA) refers to Remote Access Office Assistant as a Virtual Assistant or (VA). By definition it is an independent contractor / freelancer & entrepreneur who assists you in taking care of the administrative & technical side of your business or life.
They assist you or your business on a contractual basis from a remote location. While most VAs perform administrative tasks they are more than just a home-based secretary. Before setting up their practices, most VAs held prominent positions in the corporate world. The Virtual Assistance industry comprises former corporate trainers, publicity agents, marketing executives, paralegals, executive assistants and many more. Virtual Assistants are the shining beacon(s)s over your shoulders, they may your burdens LIGHT! Virtual Assistants are not on your payroll!
