Questions that I’m frequently asked:

1. What do you do?

It depends on what you need! I do general administrative work for some clients and other work I handle is very specific to a client’s business. What do you want to get off your plate?

2. Do you do a background check on potential clients?

I have an interview process and trust my instincts. I’m not a private detective!

3. Are you a franchise?

Nope. I own my own business and don’t have any employees.

4. Can you help with a project?

I provide long-term administrative support that includes work on projects and tasks. I’ve tried working on a pay-as-you-go basis and the relationship just isn’t as strong.

5. How do you keep everything straight?

I block out chunks of time on my calendar so I can focus on work for one client at a time.

Better questions to ask:

1. Does your business have a strong foundation?

Yes! I invested a lot of time and energy in setting up and developing my business. It’s important to me to have strong standards that are up-to-date. There are approximately 35 on my list.

2. Do you work with lots and lots of clients?

Having a big pool of clients doesn’t serve anyone well. I provide personable support to a handful of clients.

3. What’s your specialty?

I provide general administrative support that is customer service related. I love to interact with my clients and their customers (domestic and international)!

4. How do you start working with a client?

Once a client and I agree to work together, we prioritize needs and take off from there. I work on a retainer basis with a minimum of 10 hours per month because I want to develop a strong partnership.

5. How can you help my business?

A client’s success is my top priority! We work together as collaborative partners in an ongoing, long-term relationship. My support happens so seamlessly that people often don’t realize I’m a virtual assistant.
