Virtual Assistant VS Employee

There comes a time when a business owner will need help managing the tasks associated with running their business. When that time comes there are many decisions to be made which will include answering the questions: what projects or tasks can be delegated and how much of the budget can be allocated for staffing. The answers to these questions will help determine how much help a business can afford and what type  of professional they can hire to fulfill their need.  Typically the options available are to hire employees, Virtual Assistants, temps, or possibly get an intern.  Temps and interns are short term solutions, while employees and Virtual Assistants are more permanent solutions.

Some things to keep in mind when comparing hiring an employee to hiring a Virtual Assistant:

Additionally, a Virtual Assistant is CONVENIENT! A VA is available as the need arises in your business; their schedules are flexible and you only pay for the time they work on your projects. You can get help when you need it and pay online with your credit card.  A Virtual Assistant can ensure that the entrepreneur or telecommuters who is working in a home office has access to all of the support benefits enjoyed by a business person in the corner office of a major corporation- without having to hire any employees!
