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:

- Order me ID tags for my dogs
- Unsubscribe me from these 6 postal mailings
- Tell our Vet our new address
- Send me research on the technical aspects of cold brewed coffee
