Lake in the Hills, IL (PRWEB) April 29, 2005 -
The technology boom and demands of modern day life have acted as catalystÂs in bringing to the forefront both the Virtual Assistant and the Concierge industries. Rapidly finding their way out of obscurity these two white-hot industries are offered in a dual capacity by TIME SqUARED a company that caters to small businesses and individuals alike.
ÂWork and life are so intertwined for many people that there is no clear boundary defining where one begins and the other ends. Even if an individual can identify that boundary, they may have difficulty routinely living within either realm,Â says Lisa Arvanites, owner of TIME SqUARED. ÂContributing to this dilemma is a never- ending list of personal and professional obligations to manage. We are an increasingly busy society.Â
Small business owners feel the pinch on their time in a way that is unique just to them. Virtual Assistant services address their needs. A Virtual Assistant is, simply put, administrative support for the 21st century. VA's effectively manage administrative tasks so that small business owners can focus on what is core to growing their business. ÂWe can sort email, field routine customer queries, develop correspondence, maintain a data base or handle basic accounting tasks. If our client is local we also offer courier services, mobile notary or fill in help for an absent employee.Â VAÂs are skilled entrepreneurs who provide support electronically from their own fully equipped office. They are up and running when needed and not generating costs otherwise. The arrangement is ideal for a small business owner as VAÂs do not require training, benefits or even a desk. As a client is billed only for time on task, they do not realize costs for coffee breaks, socializing or other unproductive time.
The Concierge industry as a whole is undergoing a major transformation. No longer regarded as a luxury service for the elite, businesses like TIME SqUARED are providing essential services to their clients. ÂOur clients want their lives simplified,Â says Arvanites. ÂHaving someone stock a pantry with groceries, pick up dry cleaning, have a vehicle serviced or schedule contractors does not have to come with a hefty price tag. And it creates a cache of time. I am currently working with a client to help pare down her schedule. By doing some basic organizing and routine shopping I will be providing her time to pursue career goals. And should she request dinner reservations or sold out theater tickets, it would be my pleasure to accommodate her. I can even arrange for a bottle of champagne to be enjoyed in the limo on the way.Â
