  • Springfield, IL (1888PressRelease) March 24, 2009 - With the economy in a slump, a growing number of companies are turning to virtual assistants to help meet work requirements without the expense of hiring new employees. Now more than ever, businesses must be able to set themselves apart from the crowd. This presents a challenge for the business owner, who is performing all the necessary administrative tasks but is not able to focus on growing the business. Springfield-based virtual assistant Kari Thevenot, founder and owner of Your Left Hand, is one of the virtual assistants whose business is growing as a result of the poor economy.

    Thevenot opened her virtual doors in 2008. Though she's based in Springfield, she is able to take on clients anywhere in the United States. Prior to opening her firm, Kari worked for 14 years at a large hospital’s employee education department, where she acquired much of her experience and expertise.

    More than secretaries, Virtual Assistants are professionals in their own right. They provide administrative support to business owners from a remote location - usually a home office. "The scope of services provided by a Virtual Assistant is vast - some are generalists, while others focus on niche markets such as real estate, web design, marketing or law," Thevenot said.

    Why hire a Virtual Assistant? With a VA, there are "no strings attached." Virtual assistants are available on an as-needed basis, whether for a one-hour project or up to 20 ongoing hours a month. There are many types of tasks that a VA can perform in an hour or less, but they are also able to take on large projects. Thevenot said, "Virtual assistants also help companies avoid the obligations of hiring a full or part-time employee - including employment taxes, workers compensation, etc."

    Thevenot offers data and customer relationship management as well as concierge, technical and creative services. Her experience in the education field gives her special expertise in the development of training materials. In addition to virtual support, Kari has also been a CPR and First Aid instructor through the American Heart Association since 2003 and has helped over 800 people in the central Illinois area learn how to save a life. She teaches public courses on a regular basis, but also works with companies who would like to provide training for their employees.
