Virtual Assistant SubcontractorA subcontractor is someone who works for either other independent Virtual Assistants or a VA agency. You like the VA work, but you don't like client contact or the hustle of finding and keeping clients. Or you could possibly be new to the VA world and are working as a subcontractor to learn new skills. A subcontractor rate is less than an independent VA because there is no client contact and you aren't tasked with finding or maintaining your client load.
