Frequently Asked Questions
Got questions? You’ve come to the right place!
1. What the heck is a Virtual Assistant anyways?
A Virtual Assistant (also known as a VA) is “a highly-skilled, independent professional who remotely provides administrative, technical and/or creative business support services” (so says VAnetworking.com).
2. How can working with you save me money?
You’ll actually get stuff done – how novel! Instead of wasting time trying to figure out how to do stuff on your own, or wasting time doing stuff you don’t enjoy, you can instead partner with me and my team to get things happening. You getting stuff off your plate + actually getting some functioning systems in place that will bring in more customers for your business = more money for you, sweet! Plus you don’t have to pay for office space, holiday time, gossip time, holidays or benefits, or office equipment when you work with us – we are completely independent and we work with you, not for you.
3. How much will it cost me?
How much is your time and sanity worth? Are you ready to step it up and delegate? Ready to “move your business to the next level” as they say? It really all depends on what it is you’re wanting, but the majority of our work comes in nifty packages, easy peasy. Whatever works the best for your particular needs, we’ll design a custom setup that jives with everything.
If you want to see the specifics about how our billing works and all the itty-bitty details of our policies, have a look at our Policies page.
If you’d rather skip all that boring stuff and have a look at what we can do for you with all of our amazing virtual assistant super powers, hop on over to our Services page.
4. Can you do rush jobs?
Nope, not at all. When you work with us you will enjoy consistent work with attention to detail. We are super reliable, we run our businesses full-time, we will not flit off into the ether at the drop of a hat. You can enjoy a long-term business relationship with us. Piece-meal rush jobs are not a good fit.
5. Do you specialize in anything?
I’m so awesome I have two specialties actually…
First of all I am a Solutions Expert. What that means is that if you’re stuck and you’re finding that your business is getting held back because of it, you need to contact me and get “SMacked”! You can use me as your sounding board, you can get me to take your idea and make it real, you can let me craft the best solution for whatever it is you’re needing. I love figuring out the best way to get stuff done and I really love setting up systems to keep things rolling long-term that will help you stay unstuck for good.
Secondly, and this doesn’t actually have much directly to do with being a VA but I’m adding it in here anyways, I am a super fun dance teacher. If you are wanting to spice up your life, get fit, and have fun at the same time while learning middle eastern dance, and if you don’t mind the occasional snorting laugh, I’m your gal! Want to learn how to dance with your eyebrows? I’m the expert! Looking to hang out with some wonderful ladies? My class is the best! Don’t believe me? Better go have a look at my dance website to see what I mean.
6. Are you really as awesome as you say you are?
Don’t take my word for it, read the gossip yourself…
7. “Anybody want a peanut?”
As you wish. (Two of my favourite quotes, couldn’t resist sneaking them in here!)
8. Why only eight questions instead of ten?
It just so happens that 8 is my favourite number.
So what are you waiting for?
