Langley, Canada (PressExposure) November 05, 2009 -- Our current economy has forced many businesses to economize and reduce staff. This doesnât mean the work doesnât still need to be done. The big question business owners ask when faced with this dilemma is âHow am I supposed to operate my business and look after everything else at the same time?â
âHire a Virtual Assistantâ says Carol Ann Quibell, co-owner of Lorac Virtual Solutions http://www.loracvs.com , a local company who provides administrative assistance and professional guidance to businesses and individuals across North America.
The term Virtual Assistant or VA is relatively new but is becoming extremely popular with business owners and individuals who require assistance without having the high costs of hiring employees, purchasing equipment or paying for office space.
A VA can take care of things such as scheduling appointments, managing e-mails, correspondence, writing business plans, newsletters or web page content. They assist their clients with web page design; make travel arrangements, provide business start up assistance or take care of day to day general office support as needed. All of this and more can be done virtually via the internet, using email and the telephone.
Clients of VAâs include business owners from all business sectors such as the transportation industry, realtors, human resources, coaches, trainers, contractors, doctors, lawyers or even job seekers. Lorac Virtual Solutions offers its clients a wide variety of services and are associated with a large network of other VAâs they can recommend if necessary.
âItâs not a secretarial serviceâ says Carol Ann. âConsider us your partner â we are here to help you succeed in either your business or personal endeavours. When our clients succeed ~ we succeed! Itâs a win â win situation for everyone.â
