Hello, my name's Kerry Lummus, and I'm a virtual assistant (VA) and proofreader, running Lummus Virtual Solutions.
Running a business is hard; it's easy to find ourselves pulled in different directions and 'wearing many different hats'. It becomes all too easy to lose sight of our goals, spend less time on fee-earning work than we'd like and to let the calibre of service we provide to our clients slide.
Have you ever thought you could use an extra pair of hands, eyes and ears but couldn't afford it? Think again.
I work with small business owners, coaches and other busy professionals. They utilise my admin services as little or as often as they need, allowing them to concentrate on their core business - the stuff that actually brings in the money.
One of my services is proofreading. My clients are keen to ensure their written material portrays their business in the best possible light. Content may well be king, but proofreading is essential to ensure credibility isn't lost through poor grammar or punctuation.
A great virtual assistant (VA) or virtual PA is so much more than a professional administrator. A great virtual assistant is also an ambassador for their client's business - not only in the way they represent that business, but they may also add value by introducing you to useful connections and by spotting opportunities for you. A good virtual assistant can also be a great sounding board for ideas or when you purely need to think aloud.
I like to think of myself as my clients' wing woman, in fact.
If you recognise the value in outsourcing some (or all) of your admin, but you're not sure where to start, this blog might help. I also offer a no-obligation discovery call where we can discuss this further. Please feel free to book in here.
