Tell me more about my new assistant

Every bilingual English/Spanish business and personal virtual assistant is highly skilled in administrative support. Though they are not physically present at your location, they can be reached from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. by using the internet, your phone, or any other etc. to support your needs, tasks, and projects.

Our virtual assistants aim to build a solid long-term relationship by getting to know you, your business, your clients, and/or your personal life. They can become your right hand and will act as your own employee when they interact with others.

Like with any new employee, the more you can share about your business, your customers, your preferences, and your way of life, the better they will be able to support your projects in a smooth and efficient way.

Your hand-picked virtual assistant/project manager works in well equipped office space, with state of the art office equipment and receives vacation pay and benefits. Our operating offices are located in U.S. Mountain Time, thus it’s easy to adapt to any Continental US or Canadian time zone.
