Tasks you can outsource to a VA today

45 Tasks to Outsource

A Virtual Assistant (VA) or Online Business Manager (OBM) are secret weapons in business. If you want to keep doing the tasks that you love and delegate the rest (like the tasks you don’t like doing!), engaging one is your ULTIMATE SOLUTION.

VAs are no longer just an administrative assistant and many freelancers are also considered a VA as they too work virtually.


Businesses engage a VA for three main reasons:

  • They are overwhelmed with heavy workload
  • They want to focus more on growing the business
  • They simply don’t have time doing the repetitive tasks

And because there are sooo many “hats” we wear when it is just us “solepreneurs” running our business, here are 45 tasks that you could outsource and stop the overwhelm:

  1. Bookkeeping
