What exactly is a Virtual Assistant?2019-06-24T10:59:55+00:00

“Official” definition:

A Virtual Assistant (VA) is a highly-skilled, independent professional who works remotely to provide administrative, technical and/or creative support services to other businesses.


In reality:

A Virtual Assistant is the one who:

  • Deals with the 5,478  unread emails in your inbox (and then unsubscribes you from the 2,846 mailing lists you really don’t need to be on!)
  • Takes the bag of coffee-stained receipts you found in your glove compartment and turns them into a perfectly itemised expenses spreadsheet
  • Schedules your social media posts for the next 3 months, accompanied by beautiful, on-brand graphics
  • Calms you down when you accidentally hit “Reply All” to that group message – then helps you word the “damage control” email to go out afterwards!
  • Enables you to take your first holiday in 4 years. One that doesn’t involve bringing your laptop and trying to answer customer queries while you’re sitting in the departure lounge.

Sounds good, right? And that’s only a small sample of ways I can make your life easier!

Why should I work with a Virtual Assistant?2018-03-28T14:07:08+00:00

As a small business owner, you may not have the requirement, the infrastructure or the budget to employ somebody in an administrative capacity. Working with a Virtual Assistant gives you flexible access to high quality, professional support, as and when you need it.

How much does a Virtual Assistant cost?2020-05-19T14:46:33+00:00

Ah, but the *real* question is… how much do you value your free time, the ability to focus on helping your clients and doing the bits you LOVE in your business, rather than drowning in admin – not to mention the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have someone there to support you in taking your business to the next level.

Priceless, yes?

Okay, it’s not priceless – everyone needs a budget to work with! Price will vary depending on the type and level of services you choose, but to give you a rough guideline – my rates start at €40 per hour.

I also offer project rates, if you need an extra pair of hands for a busy event or to help you tackle those one-off jobs that have been stuck on your To-Do list for far too long.
