Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a Virtual Assistant (VA)?
A: A Virtual Assistant, also known as a VA, is an administrative professional who assists other professionals from a remote location. VAs are contractors, not employees.

VAs save their clients time and money by providing their own equipment, training, and office space.
