What is a Virtual Assistant?

Virtual assistants are fast becoming an essential service, especially for busy smaller businesses who don't have the capacity to employ someone full time, and yet, are in need of an extra set of hands to run the business.

Virtual assistant services can vary from general administrative tasks to highly specialised services.

Check out this blog post which lists 20 things a Virtual Assistant can offer.

I need a Virtual Assistant for my business, How Can you Help?

If you don't know the first thing about hiring a Virtual Assistant, enquire about our VA Coaching.

Otherwise, search through the VA Directory and if you find a suitable VA, contact them directly to enquire about their services. 

If you're not sure who would be suitable for your business, contact and we'll reach out to the VAs on your behalf, free of charge.

What experience do I need to become a Virtual Assistant?

Virtual assistants ideally have previous experience in an administrative capacity and intermediate technical knowledge.

As a freelancer working for the health & wellness industry, having a keen interest and basic knowledge of the holistic health field can be beneficial in relating to your client and their services. 

Joanna studied health coaching at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition which many of her clients saw as a huge benefit, as she understood, and was aligned, to their holistic health values.

I'm a Virtual Assistant, can I join VA Directory?

The VA Directory is a bonus feature of The Virtual Assistant Toolbox.

Your Directory profile also includes:

  • Business promotion through The Healthy VA social media pages
