)-- “This is an opportune time for anyone who wishes to get into this very high-in-demand industry and become self employed as a Virtual Assistant,” states Quibell. Not that it’s going to be easy but with good research material and hard work anyone who wants to can start a Virtual Assistant Business.
Our current economy has forced many businesses to economize and reduce staff. This doesn’t mean the work doesn’t still need to be done. The big question business owners ask when faced with this dilemma is “How am I supposed to operate my business and look after everything else at the same time?”
“Hire a Virtual Assistant” says Carol Ann Quibell, co-owner of Lorac Virtual Solutions, a virtual company who provides administrative assistance and professional guidance to businesses and individuals across North America.
During the time Quibell started Lorac Virtual Solutions she found there was so much to learn and do, at times it became overwhelming. During the process she took courses, attended workshops, made contacts with other women, joined forums, and wrote pages of notes.
She has taken all of that material she spent months gathering and has put it together into an easy to follow guide for the reader to learn about this much needed business:

The term “Virtual Assistant” or VA is relatively new but is becoming extremely popular with business owners and individuals who require assistance without having the high costs of hiring employees, purchasing equipment or paying for office space.
“It’s not a secretarial service,” says Carol Ann. “You will become a self employed business person who partners with other businesses to help them succeed. When your clients succeed ~ you succeed! It’s a win – win situation for everyone.”
