Trusty Oak has proven time and time again to be a professional, reliable and responsive virtual assistant service for our small business.  We desperately needed help with invoicing, translating documents from English to Spanish, scheduling and social media posts but did not want to hire multiple resources to perform those duties.  Trusty Oak was the perfect solution to our problem.

It took a while to open to the idea of a PA – as a new business owner, I thought I could do everything. Well, I was wrong! Letting go of the things I don’t know how to do, or don’t do well at all and handing them to Trusty Oak helped me immensely.  They take care of my website and social media and much more, and leave me time as the business owner to do the stuff I’m good at.

Now I know TopMac and Trusty Oak have to go together.

Working with Trusty Oak has been an absolute pleasure. After several failed attempts with other VA firms, I have finally found a responsive, trustworthy, dependable assistant. Elisabeth is resourceful and creative, adding much more value than the bare bones inbox and calendar management I was looking for. If you’re looking for a fractional assistant you can trust from day one, I highly recommend you work with Trusty Oak.

3 Lessons for Leaders of Remote Teams: It All Starts With Trust

Last month, I had the opportunity to spend a full month away from Trusty Oak’s Austin, Texas-based headquarters and wow, was it an adventure!

I spent two weeks working remotely from Hamburg, Germany, one week working remotely part-time from Bali, Indonesia and capped off the trip by attending a two-day conference for leaders of remote teams.
