Zirtual Suspends All Work With No Notice PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 10 August 2015 18:49

 

My advice? Take back the reins!

Zirtual, a virtual assistance service connecting primarily U.S. home-based virtual assistants with clients worldwide, has suddenly "suspended" service yesterday, with no indication to employees or clients when (or even whether) work will resume. Zirtual is not a traditional VA referral organization, but in fact hired, as employees, assistants to service clients virtually. Though Zirtual is willingly connecting the assistant directly to the clients if they ask for such a connection, they still have no idea if they will continue to have the health insurance or whether they will get paid for the most recent work completed. From what I have seen from many VAs posts on social media, they were completely blindsided by this announcement. As Denise Griffiths, of Gotta Go Virtual Now (www.gottagovirtualnow.com) said, "This is why you need to promote your services and build YOUR OWN VA practice."

As an entrepreneur who jumped directly into my own practice with both feet, I agree wholeheartedly with Denise. I have never felt it was wise to put all of my eggs in one basket, so to speak, and for that reason built and retained a significant and broad client base, ensuring that should one or two move on, I would always have plenty of work. Understandably, to many people, the need to provide a stable income, together with health insurance and other promised benefits, this type of employment situation is very attractive, particularly because it comes with health insurance, but comes with significant risk. Whether the closure is temporary or permanent is still to be seen, though it seems unlikely that with the abrupt closure of all resources with no notice that clients and/or employees will come running back should they opt to reopen.
