8 Skills That A Virtual Assistant Possess

by Jocelyn Fernandez in Admin Support, Services, Tips, Virtual Assistant, Website Management

Business often gives you too much work to do, especially if you are the owner of it. There are due dates to follow, data to be recorded, reports to be finished, queries to be answered and meetings to be scheduled and attended.

Doing all of these on your own? That will surely burn yourself out! You might not even be able to do some of it cause you might lack the expertise for that certain task. Even more, you might lose interest in it because of how boring the task is. As awful as it sounds, but you can’t and shouldn’t do everything all by yourself! You will always need someone to help you out, someone who can make the work faster, someone who’s able to give you the time to rest or can keep your mind at ease and lets you focus in the most important task at hand.

by Richard Cantrall in Admin Support, Services, Tips, Typography

I’m often asked to proofread a document only to find after wading through a mishmash of muddled text, that the document clearly needs a major rewrite. At other times, I’m asked to edit a document when it’s clear that only minor grammatical errors need correcting. Proofread or edit – which is called for?

Order Processing

by Jocelyn Fernandez in Services

Every business in the world runs on the idea that the customer is king, and in the process of doing business nothing is more crucial than being able to deliver what customers pay for.
