Top Tasks

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:

- Create a letter from this dictation - Call power and gas companies to switch off service - Create show notes from my podcast
