One of our favorite things to see at AssistPro™ is the growth that our clients’ businesses experience from having the support of their AssistPro™ Managing Assistant.  It’s proof that having the right assistant, delegating tasks to that person, and trusting them to hold up one end of the business, will always lead to significant business...
It’s busy season for most of our clients, and Thanksgiving is the last thing on everyone’s mind.  That’s why we asked our Managing Assistants to submit their favorite Thanksgiving recipes so that you don’t have to look far for that dish you’ve been asked to bring to your gathering.  Try not to drool on your...
We asked for your favorite Thanksgiving recipes, and you responded! We got pretty hungry as we compiled the list of all of the amazing recipes you all shared with us.

Today, LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Company released their study on the state of women in Corporate America, titled Women In The Workplace. In the study, certain markers of career success and personal happiness are judged based on input from many participating companies in various fields.

“So, what do you do?” It’s the typical first question you get asked when meeting someone. “I own AssistPro™, a virtual assistant solution for small business owners and entrepreneurs,” is my typical response. Inevitably, I get a blank stare or more questions. The concept of a virtual assistant is still relatively new and part of...
