As far as huge businesses are concerned, they use the services of a VA for a purpose but the small business owner can use his skills completely. Since the small business owner is not in the position to hire a specialist for every post vacant in the office, he can hire the assistants virtually and get all the work completed from them. As the virtual office assistant works remotely it saves the small business owner a lot of money. When the VA is hired by the small business owner he does not need to furnish his office thus it saves the initial investment required when hiring a professional in the office. After all, the small business owner needs to save every penny and investing money on the employees would drain out all the money from the budget and growing the business further would become a problem.
