Outsourced Tasks

People are always asking me what I have my virtual assistants do. On average I request about 150 tasks per month, some by phone and some by email. Whether you are using FancyHands or Zirtual, here's some ideas of the things you can outsource:

- Change my mailing address for these bills
- Find an extra tall child gate
- Login to Airbnb and issue a refund for this reservation
