A VA’s Journey

It was barely a month ago when I first encountered the term Virtual Assistant. A friend sponsored me to a Virtual Assistant Seminar and what I learned from it was quite a revelation.

Wikipedia defines a Virtual Assistant (typically abbreviated to VA, also called a virtual office assistant), is generally self-employed and provides professional, administrative, technical, or creative (social) assistants to clients from a home office. Common modes of communication and data delivery includes the internet, e-mail and phone call conferences, online work spaces and fax machine. 

The world has become smaller with the onset of technology. My husband and I regularly communicate with our family and friends in the US through the VOIP. If we use Skype, we can even see the other party! Email, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and other social media websites are largely used for marketing. LogMeIn and similar websites, allow someone from a remote place to look at what you are working on your computer in real time.

There is so much to learn and so much to explore from the buffet of knowledge available. Through this blog I plan to post write ups, tutorials and feature articles on Virtual Assistants.

I hope you will visit my blog regularly.  See you more often…
