Thanks to the power of broadband and easy to use management tools, you can now hire an executive assistant/virtual assistant from anywhere in the world! These professionals usually work from home and help manage your tasks, schedules, and appointments.

They also help in making customer calls, fix appointments with vendors, sending thank you cards to potential clients, and even fixing interviews with prospective candidates. Gone are the days when you needed someone to sit right outside your office to assist you with your tasks.
