Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs - Get Ready for the Holidays

Upstate NY based Virtual Assistant offers a helping hand for the holiday season.

Scotia, NY, December 01, 2007 --( It is reported that there are 1,302,672 small businesses and 930,238 self employed individuals in New York State[i]. That means there are, right now, approximately 2,232,910 people in NYS who are gearing up for the holidays and may not have the time or resources to take care of everything.

Thinking about all that needs to get done in a normal work day and then trying to add in the holiday related things can get very stressful. That is when a Virtual Assistant can “Save the Day.”

Virtual Assistants, aka VAs, provide a variety of business support services from their own home office, using their own equipment. Businesses hire VAs for many reasons. Some like the idea of having someone to do all of the administrative tasks for the business but not having to pay taxes, benefits or insurance. Others enjoy knowing that they have access to a professional who can complete special projects or seasonal items without the need to provide the office space or equipment. And still others want an expert to handle their finances, billing and invoicing without actually hiring a full time employee.

On a daily, weekly or monthly basis a Virtual Assistant can answer emails, field client phone calls, send invoices, pay bills and just about anything else a small business person needs done. For the holiday season, many VAs provide extra services such as addressing & mailing holiday greeting cards, gathering end-of-year tax records and even locating that “special” gift.
