When you’re working for yourself, it can often be difficult to delegate tasks. While having a hands-on approach to business is great, doing work that could be outsourced leaves you drained with no energy to focus on what you’re good at. Virtual assistants (VAs) offer an excellent solution to task outsourcing. Working remotely, they supply their own network, personal computer, and their own office space.
