“I love my virtual assistant because I only need her for a few hours each month. I pay a reasonable amount for a block of hours, and I share her with her other clients, so I don’t have to pay someone to sit around my office waiting for me to think of something I need help with” – says Ben from Futures Protected

Need help with your overflowing Inbox?
This is what Linda says:
“It was scary relinquishing my inbox to anyone. I felt I would lose control and miss something. I was forced to do this recently as I knew I would have no access to WIFI for 2 weeks while I was away on holiday. Carol and I had a chat about what I needed her to do and she suggested adding a few new folders to my inbox where she would file everything that needed attention and action on my return, and another where she would respond on my behalf and file anything I may want to read. I was amazed by the results. Not only did it take me less time to action urgent matters, I didn’t miss anything. All it did was make me more efficient and profesional. I have asked Carol to continue to ‘have my back’ and check my emails and action where necessary. It’s freed up so much time, I’m sorry I didn’t think of this sooner. Thank you”

Why use a Virtual Assistant?
Wondering how a Virtual Assistant can save you time?
Rob wanted help managing various tasks leaving him time to focus on his business.
This is what Rob has to say:
“Initially, our goal was to reduce my workload by 5 hours per week, but by delegating the related tasks to Carol, I actually ended up saving closer to 10 hours as well as strengthening the relationships with my existing clients and having the time to focus on additional revenue. Amazing!”
This is what Linda has to say:
“I’ve been using Carol’s service for 1 year now for various administrative and secretarial tasks at Executive Level. I run a small group of busy restaurants and am not always around during normal office hours, so utilising Carol’s service suits my needs fully.
I don’t have to take on another employee but can enjoy outsourced, confidential PA services as much as I need, paying by the hour.
Carol takes notes at our monthly Exec Meeting which takes place out of normal office hours. This has proved invaluable to our management team as she also follows up on any actions outstanding to ensure we keep on track.
Carol manages our diaries and my inbox and keeps our quarterly targets and spreadsheets up to date as well as managing the management holiday chart and other ad-hoc tasks.
Invoices are clear and show exactly how many hours spent on my business.
I can recommend Carol to anyone who is thinking of hiring a competent, highly efficient PA service to assist with their business.”
