Virtual Assistant – Do you need one?Written by Shannon Davidson
Continued from page 1
A Virtual Assistant is far more cost effective than a regular employee if you only need support on certain projects or at limited times. A Virtual Assistant will only charge you when they are working on your project(s). You will need to tell your Virtual Assistant what you need and want, and give some general guidelines. Generally Virtual Assistants do not charge you for this ‘training’ period. A Virtual Assistant should be set up as an independent contractor, never an employee. WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM THE SERVICES OF A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT: Any business or individual who does not have office support personnel, means of hiring in-house office support personnel, or need to hire in-house office support personnel. Perhaps most important thing a Virtual Assistant can do is relieve you of time consuming tasks that keep you from growing your business. As a business professional, your time needs to be spent growing your business by being in front of clients, making sales, following up on leads, or attending networking events. Their success depends on your success. A Virtual Assistant can become one of best assistants and business partners you've ever had. After all, they are business owners too.

Silver is commonest of precious metals. Fine silver is pure silver, which is seldom used for jewelry because it is too soft. Sterling silver is 925 parts silver to 75 of copper, alloy most often used. Silver weighs about half as much as gold, has greater flexibility, but is not as malleable, it has always been less expensive as well. A comparable piece of gold jewelry might cost four or five times that of a piece of sterling silver jewelry.
The current fashion trend toward black clothing has made silver jewelry more popular than ever. Silver likes to be worn; it stays cleaner & shinier through movement and friction. So sterling silver is a perfect accessory for today’s fast paced lifestyles. Much like gold, sterling silver needs to be cleaned.
