Here at Get Ahead VA we are privileged to work with a wide variety of clients ranging from will writers to window cleaners, financial consultants to fashion designers.  All of our clients are motivated and driven business owners, with clear plans for business growth.  They recognise the value of outsourcing, passing onto others tasks that either they lack skills in, or tasks that drain their valuable time.  

Here’s 60 seconds with one of our clients Dan at Basemap who was looking for the right flexible resource to enable his business to achieve its growth objectives:

What situation was your business in when you came to Get Ahead VA? We were a small business with big ambitions.  We realised that some of the administrative tasks currently undertaken by the directors and staff could be outsourced, in order to free up staff time to focus on growing our business.

What problems were you experiencing? Admin headaches were removing focus on the important stuff such as speaking to clients.  Manual processes were not scalable in line with our expansion plans.

What might have happened if you hadn’t taken any action? We were in danger of spending less time on generating revenue than we needed to, to ensure our business grows.

How did Get Ahead VA help solve the problem for you? Get Ahead VA have provided highly skilled resources on a pay as you go basis - exactly the flexibility we need. 

Why did you choose a VA and not a part time member of staff? We chose a VA because it gives us the flexibility to switch the Get Ahead VA resources on and off, as and when we need them.  Taking on part time staff would be too much of a commitment given our varying requirements.

What has this meant to you and your business?  Using Get Ahead VA means that we can increase the amount of internal admin and other tasks we can outsource on a flexible commercial basis without increasing the risk to the business.  It’s a Win/Win!

Get Ahead VA’s nationwide virtual assistance services enable small business owners and entrepreneurs to get back to what they do best – growing and running their businesses.  If your business could benefit from our help please get in touch on 01483 332220 or email us at
