Need Business Help? Win a Virtual Assistant

Elance contest - win a virtual assistantWhat would it be like to win an assistant?  Just think what you could do in your business or your life if you had some extra help.  You could: 

  • Free up your salespeople and/or you to actually sell instead of completing paperwork all the time
  • Issue invoices to get paid faster
  • Make travel arrangements
  • Help organize an important business event
  • Update the content on your website
  • Assemble and proofread your newsletter
  • Finish that marketing brochure — finally!

You could get help with these and many more activities, by winning a virtual assistant from Elance.

Now, technically you won’t “own” your virtual assistant, if you win.  But you will get $5,000 worth of Elance credits to hire an assistant — an excellent benefit.

To enter, all you need to do is answer one question: 

How would you use a virtual assistant to grow your business or improve your personal life? 

This contest runs through January 25, 2008.  Good news:  you do NOT have to be located in the United States to enter.

For full contest details and official rules, visit the Elance website and apply.  Don’t wait!

  1. Terry, it’s a terrific contest, especially with New Year’s resolutions coming up.

    I think every entrepreneur should resolve to find more time to spend with family and enjoy life more, by offloading some extra work to an assistant.
