To answer both Terese and Eric..... A Virtual Assistant is preferrable to a full time member of staff, because they are brought in on an ad hoc basis. Being able to book a person's time only as a when needed is far more attractive than having to pay a person to sit around trying to look busy. In addition, the employer does not have the burden of all the red tape invloved in a full time employee (this involves many man hours a month), there are no benefits to pay and no annual vacations. Most VA's charge a little more than a full time employee would cost, but if you weigh the two, VA's are far cheaper, work faster and are far more versatile. I would not be without my VA (Patti Balch, Ryze member) - she is worth her weight in gold! Three cheers for VA's! :) A > Terese Strickland wrote: > >I am curious about this topic as well.

Althea mentions an important resource - virtual assistants.


What do members use VAs for...and, more importantly, what could you use them for?


What alternatives are there to VAs? What are the pros and cons of each?


For more info, check out the IVAA, the VA professional organization, and AssistU, which trains VAs.


Finally, any recommendations for VAs? I'm working out a partnership with someone from the Rocky Mountain VAs
