Open Thread: Do You Use a Virtual Assistant?

ScreenshotWe’ve written about the benefits of outsourcing your chores, and we’ve covered the expanding field of virtual assistants. But though I’ve employed office staff in the past, I’m reaching the point where a VA might make sense. The problem is that I’m having trouble identifying chunks of work that it would make sense for me to outsource.

I hope that some of you WWD readers have stories of your own in this area to inspire me. So – if you use a VA of your own, how is it working out? How did you find your assistant? What sorts of things do you hand over to be done? And if you’re a virtual assistant, we’d welcome your perspective as well: where do you find you can help your clients the most?
