A Discussion on the Term 'Virtual Assistant'
The Gritty Virtual Assistant has quite the discussion going on a recent blog post that explores the possibility that the term ‘virtual assistant’ is no longer working for us. In the post Danielle states;
The term “Virtual Assistant” itself is at the root of many of the wrong perceptions and misunderstandings we are constantly having to disabuse clients of. Because the term is vauge and ambiguous, it creates confusion and leaves it open to anyone’s interpretation. And because it wasn’t well thought out and the branding not managed well or at all, it’s been coopted by anyone and everyone who thinks doing anything and everything virtually is Virtual Assistance.
If you’re a virtual assistant or someone who uses a VA, add your voice to the discussion!
