Former Administrative Staffer Offers Virtual Services by Contract
Gina Cozza, of Spokane, has started Invisible Business Solutions, a home-based venture she describes as a virtual administrative assistant service.
“A virtual assistant is an independent contractor who works remotely from their home office to provide a wide variety of business support services,” Cozza says.
Some of the services listed on her Web site are: data entry and transcription, bulk mailings, meeting and event planning, travel arranging, document scanning, supply ordering, technical writing, data analysis, accounting, Web site development, and environmental site assessment research and writing.
Cozza says she started the business because she was laid off last year after 12 years as an administrative professional with an engineering firm here.
She says she has retained six regular clients, and has done individual projects for other clients. Cozza says she is doing “basically the same type of work I did before,” but her clients don’t have the added expense of paying for her insurance, vacation time, sick leave, or taxes.
