Local Business Spotlight: Lady of LETTERS, Inc.

When I met my friend and former boss Caren Trapp for lunch a couple years ago, we had both recently set out on new career paths. Between bites at P.F. Chang’s, we shared our excitement about where we were and where saw ourselves going.

Before that time I had never heard of a Virtual Assistant. She explained to me in detail the services Lady of LETTERS, Inc. offered, and helped me see the immense value of these services to organizations and businesses of all sizes.

For example, say you own a home-based business. You’ve started showing a positive cash flow, but it’s not yet big enough to hire an employee. This can be a hard hurdle to jump, because an increase in business means an increase in workload. You find yourself spread thin and operating on less sleep as you try to keep all the plates spinning. And as most who’ve ever owned a business know, employees are expensive and can be time consuming – and you still have to pay them even if you can’t keep them busy consistently.

This is what makes the concept of a Virtual Assistant so compelling. No payroll. No tax withholding/reporting. No scheduling. No absenteeism! You don’t need to worry about supplying office space, equipment, or supplies, because your project is completed off-site. And you only pay for the time Caren and her team actually spends working.

When chatting with Caren over morning coffee recently, I wasn’t surprised to hear that Lady of LETTERS is growing by leaps and bounds. Caren is one of those rare people who will go to any length to create a satisfied customer – a quality that has no doubt contributed to her company’s success.
