If you’re looking for a virtual assistant, you may assume you need to give them larger projects to make it worth your time and money. However, it’s very easy for your to-do list to be taken over by smaller tasks that take up a lot of your time.

Think about how much time you could save by passing them onto someone else. The big benefit of a VA is you don’t have to commit to set hours each month, you can just pay for the work they do, even if that’s just an hour or two each month. A VA is skilled in many administrative tasks so will probably be able to get it done quicker and more efficiently than you could.
