Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly IS a Virtual Assistant?
I am a freelancer who works remotely to provide expert administrative and project support on an as-needed basis. All of my services are pay-as-you-go, billed in six minute increments. There are no minimums, retainers, or contracts… you simply pay for the time spent on task.
How do you work remotely?
I use basic technology such as email and phone, as well as cloud storage services, screen share, and task management applications to communicate and exchange information with my clients. Usually, however, I find that email alone is more than sufficient to work productively.
Will you be my employee?
No, I am not an employee. I am a professional services provider. (You will not even need to send me a 1099 at the end of the year, as my firm is an S-corporation.)
Is the information I provide to you secure?
Absolutely… security is one of my highest priorities. Your personal and professional information will never be shared with anyone, for any reason. I also use multiple, secure backup systems, password encryption, as well as the latest in virus protection.
I take the privacy of my clients EXTREMELY seriously.
