We often get puzzled looks when we say “I’m a virtual executive assistant”. What is that, people wonder – “Is she a robot? An AI? What the heck is a virtual assistant?”
(Que scene from Pinocchio when the Blue Fairy glitters in, waves her wand and turns Pinocchio into a real boy – ta-da, better yet, if you are old enough to remember the “take on me” music video…. ).
A virtual EA (VA) is a real, live person dedicated to providing top-notch administrative support. In a world where AI options abound, we real-life VAs bring something special to the table – the personal touch.
