A Day in the Life of a Virtual Assistant

Good morning

It’s the start of a beautiful Friday which will, unfortunately be marred by a funeral.  Fortunately, being virtual, I can work around the funeral and not be affected. 

As a Virtual Assistant, I can take my work with me, or leave it at home thanks to the wonders of modern technology.  One of the most important items in my bag of tricks is a funky little program called TraxTime.  You can download a copy of it from http://www.spudcity.com.  It works as a time clock so that you can keep track of every minute that you work for a client.  It’s an invaluable tool and everyone should try it out.

Cheers until next time
