Useful Tools

Part of being a Virtual Assistant is helping others make their lives easier and helping them to find ways to improve the way in which they work.

Here are someof the useful resources I have come across during my career as a Virtual Assistant.

Wave Accounting Software

This FREE accounting software is what I use to do my business accounts on. I can raise my invoices, receipts, track expenses and reconcile my bank statements all in one place.

KS - Virtual Assistant Support Group

Launched in December 2019, the Virtual Assistant Support group is focussed around the Mission of KeyStorkes. To help women gain more confidence within their skills and perhaps use them towards their own business.


This FREE time tracking software is a useful tool for keeping track of hours worked and projects. Its a good way to keep an eye on what you and your team are working on. And yes its FREE. But paid upgrades are available. But I havent found that they are needed.

The Society of Virtual Assistants

This recognised award goes to those VAs who go that extra mile to carry out their work for their clients. You have to meet a set criteria before you can display this on your website.


This FREE software is amazing. I use it everyday within my business. To create Facebook posts. And I even used it to create eye catching images for my website. You can upgrade to the pro version if you wish to get more features. But the FREE version is just as good.

MIBA Aberdeen

I am the Aberdeen City and Shire Co-ordinator for MIBA. This is a fantastic support group for Mums who have a business and are looking to connect with like minded ladies. We share support and advice along with access to amazing training opportunities. And the added bonus of a monthly Networking Event - Which is child friendly.
