Well... I have finally entered the world of blogging! First post ever and not quite sure what to write about. I guess a good place would be to tell you a little about myself.
I am a stay at home mum to a 2 year old boy, with another one due in August 2012. My husband and I have been married a year in May and live in Tauranga, New Zealand.
A few months ago Hubby and I were talking about what I could do from home to keep my hand in the working world, while still staying at home to look after the little ones. After a lot of thought, came up with a Virtual Assistant business that would mainly focus on 1 man businesses and small businesses who would love a PA but haven't quite got the funds to stretch to hiring one.
Basically 1 Stop VA - Virtual Assistant can help with all the admin tasks that you find annoying! Typing up minutes, setting up and sending out newsletters to your clients, new business card design, mail merges, PowerPoint Presentations, anything you can think of that a PA would normally do for you. You email me the files you want done (scanned handwritten copies are fine), I type them up for you, send it back for your ok and then we are all done! I can do as much or as little as you need. I charge a flat hourly rate and then any time after that.
The beauty of having a Virtual Assistant (VA) is that you don't have to worry about hiring new people then training them up, sick leave, annual leave, on going training and you only pay for the time spent on the task - no hidden extras.
So if you are thinking of trying out a VA, now is the time! Look me up on Facebook or flick me an email email@example.com - we can work out what you need.
