From my personal experience, I can tell you that having a virtual assistant can help you big time. At times people might be doing one thing, and there is no time to complete the spreadsheet or the daily activities for their business.

You can be that personal assistant and do small things for them and get paid for it.  It could be anything from sending emails to reserving a booking for lunch or talking with a prospective client.
