Ever wished you could use a Virtual Assistant in your business but not sure where to start?

Wondered what a VA could do for your business and what you could delegate right now?

The answer is plenty.

Delegating tasks to a VA seems like it would be easy. But often, when you sit down to make a delegation plan, it is hard to find the tasks that you can let go of.

The GOOD news is, VAs are skilled and knowledgeable. You might not realise it, but they can take on a huge bulk of your tasks.

If only you knew which ones they were!

Don’t worry, you don't have to sit there stewing over it for hours. We’ve got you covered in this blog! Here are all the tasks you can hand over today.


Emails are meant to make our lives easier. But sometimes, it can feel like all you ever do is try and empty your inbox and make sure you reply to everything important.

Imagine if someone did all that for you! A GOOD VA can:

  1. Regularly review your inbox and make sure important emails are flagged with you straight away.

Whether it’s an important business meeting, a personal engagement or a special occasion that can’t be missed, making sure your diary is up to date is essential.
