Working with a virtual assistant instantly frees up more time to focus on the things that count – the things only you can do.
Identifying those tasks and distinguishing how much of your involvement is required can be a challenge.
So here are 27 tasks we do for our clients every day, to kick start your virtual PA to-do wish list!
Which of these can you hand over to a virtual assistant?
