By hiring a Virtual Assistant...
You SAVE almost $60,000.00 per year!

Although the Virtual Assistant's hourly rate is more than the employee's rate in the first place, you save the cost of benefits and overhead that would have to be applied to the new employee's wage. And, because Virtual Assistant's are usually more experienced, more efficient, and better connected than the employee, you'll need to devote far less time to the project to get the same results, only 480 hours a year versus 2,080 for the new employee.

**Remember, with a Virtual Assistant, you only pay for the time on task by the minute! No more paying for socializing, hour long lunches or frequent trips to the washroom.

Your employee's 8 hour day can be crunched into 3-4 hours with a Virtual Assistant.

Simply put, you should contract with a Virtual Assistant because it's more cost-effective and Virtual Assistants go above and beyond the normal assistant's duties to impact your own productivity. No task is too big or small for a Virtual Assistant to handle. Even if you only have 1 hour of work a month for a Virtual Assistant to do, a VA can (and will) do it.

“Laurie has done an amazing job on creating my marketing pieces for my Real Estate business.  She has done excellent work on establishing a great relationship in where she understands what I am trying to get across and the key points I am trying to promote on my properties.  I would recommend her services to anyone.”
- Dustin Henfrey, Remax

"I have known Laurie for several years and have found her to be extremely competent at whatever task she has taken on. Laurie has set high standards for herself and those that she works with. She isn't happy with "average" and seeks ways to go the extra mile. This is not a quality found to often in business these days. Above all, she has always been honest and straight forward with those that she does business with and I have never had to question her in that regard."

Glenn Devereaux, Red Deer, AB
