About V-A

Carmen Peters | Founder / Virtual Assistant
My entrepreneurial motivations lead me to leave the corporate world where I worked as an Executive PA and Event Planner to pursue the world of online. It was on this entrepreneurial journey where V-A started.
My mission is to help and support SME’s with their admin needs and assist in growing their businesses.
Technologically savvy and a fast learner – I have the ability to focus on the details while still being able to see the bigger picture. I bring a wealth of experience having worked as an Executive P.A and Event Planner/Coordinator. My initiative, organized approach and ability to prioritize tasks will allow my clients to reach their objectives. I am a creative thinker and great at finding solutions to problems. I have both a personal and professional background in social media. I own and manage an ecommerce business, so I understand just how valuable a business owner’s time is.

WHY V-A

V-A’s reduce your labor costs! Virtual assistants are independent contractors which mean you don't need to even think about payroll taxes, UIF, annual leave, sick days, worker's compensation and employee benefits etc. Virtual assistants work around your schedule to provide you services whenever you need it. Think of them as your 'on-call' go to person. No need to hire part time employees and hope you have enough work to keep them busy for the hours they work. With a virtual assistant you only pay for time spent on YOUR project. Virtual assistants take on those every day essential tasks you don't have time for allowing you to grow your Business. There's no need for an actual office if you don't need one or work from home. You don’t have to pay agency fees. V-A’s save you money! A virtual assistant may have skills that you don't, desperately need but don't have time to learn. A virtual assistant cares about her business - it's her livelihood - she wants you to call her and she wants you to tell others about her services. This translates to superior service. A skilled virtual assistant is your collaborative partner to take on all those administrative tasks that distract you from your job of growing and running your business.
