What Business Owners Say About Virtual Assistants

Business owners are looking for some help but aren’t always sure exactly what they need. They contact virtual assistants but aren’t sure how a virtual assistant can help them. And many times virtual assistants find it challenging to educate business owners with information about how they can benefit the business owner.

However, there are business owners who have been able to define what they need from a virtual assistant. They may have had an unpleasant experience in the past and now have finally found the virtual assistant for them.

So instead of trying to explain to you, the business owner, how we virtual assistants can help you, I thought you might like to hear from these business owners who have used a virtual assistant.

If you are a business owner, I hope the comments from these business owners will help you more clearly understand how a virtual assistant can help you with your business needs. And if you are a virtual assistant, perhaps these comments can help you define to your prospects just how you can help them.

Excerpt from Successfully Start Your Business:

“For business owners with limited resources they are a great option as you can delegate a task to them with a deadline…no on-the-job training, no payroll taxes, no sick leave or unplanned absence – they take care of all this themselves. You get to define your problem, compare the solution you see with them, and let them take care of the rest.

“For somebody starting a business that needs a Business Plan, Sales and marketing Plan, advertisement, series of spreadsheets, a sales flyer or similar one off project, a Virtual Assistant can be a great option – especially if you find one that understands what you do and doesn’t need extensive training.”-Andrew Rogerson,  Successfully Start Your Business: Expert Advice from a Business Broker

Testimonials of Business Owners Who Finally Found the Virtual Assistant for them

“I just love having an assistant that is knowledgeable and gives thoughtful consideration to our projects. My only previous experience is with assistants that just did what I told them to, but contributed very little input and really didn’t add any value.”–”Yo Pal” Hal Elrod, Best Selling Author, Motivational Speaker, Life Success Coach, Sacramento, California

“I have had a really hard time finding assistants who can meet my high expectations. I never have to worry about projects getting completed accurately or on time because she always delivers. She has an excellent attention to detail and a contagious enthusiasm for her work. “–Stephanie Chandler, Author and Speaker, Sacramento, California

I’d love to hear your comments, both from business owners and virtual assistants.
