With the advent of the higher minimum wage laws, small businesses are not hiring as many administrative personnel as they have in the past. Often times you will walk into a business and “sign-in” rather than be greeted by a receptionist who would likely be doing administrative projects as well. Small businesses, CEO’s, start-up’s and other business owners find it more economical to pay for project based work rather than hire a full-time office worker. This makes for a ready-made target audience for new virtual assistant.
