A Lightened Load: 35 Ways a VA Might Bring Relief

Business can be hard sometimes. But with the right team, it doesn’t always have to be. The beauty of working alongside a virtual assistant is gaining additional space to focus on what’s most important to you, having the margin to rest and reset, and having a reliable partner to build with.

Initiating a new virtual assistant relationship can sometimes feel daunting, particularly if it’s unfamiliar territory. But my hope is that this list of tasks will help you realize the potential of this relationship and provide a fresh perspective on the various items you can entrust to your assistant.
