Top 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:

  • Find out what happened to my order of upgraded whey
  • Investigate trading in my minivan for a truck
  • Transcribe the following spoken paragraph and send to X
