The word “VA” is a term that we will be hearing a lot more in the next few years, but most may not have heard this term before in business. A VA is a Virtual Assistant. In other words, a personal or executive assistant  that works remotely, very often from home, completing various tasks for businesses. Hiring a Virtual Assistant enables businesses to delegate time consuming and often boring jobs that the business does not want to or have the time to complete themselves.
