“I found Janet while surfing the internet looking for someone who could help me get my thoughts across in a concise and effective manner – while also being upbeat and at times humorous. Janet has ticked all those boxes and then some. Janet has come to the rescue on deadlines, suggestions of what to write and also a gentle reminder that something was due. While I might have struggled for hours trying to get something just right, Janet takes the rough material, polishes it up and makes it stand out. I would highly recommend her!”
Pennie Mathers | Royal LePage Real Estate, Toronto

“I have worked with Janet over the past two years on projects with the Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade. In all my experiences, I’ve found she always brings a fresh perspective to conversations, and is well-read on current trends and how they will have an impact on the work she is doing.

In addition, her excellent writing and design skills are invaluable in developing communications materials that support the goals of organizations and help them find new success.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Do the hours in my monthly plan roll over?

The hours in your monthly plan do not roll over. However, you can downgrade to a plan with fewer hours the next month (48 hours before your renewal date).

Can I change my monthly plan based on how busy I am?

Since monthly plans are paid for in advance, you can downgrade or cancel your monthly plan for the next billing cycle, as long as you provide 7 days written notice.

Can I upgrade my plan in the middle of a billing cycle?

Yes. As your virtual assistant, I will be able to gauge how quickly you are using up your hours for the month. If I feel more time is required to complete the work before the end of a billing cycle, I will be in touch to discuss topping up your plan.

What are the financial benefits to using a virtual assistant?

When you work with a virtual assistant, you’re paying ONLY for the time spent on the required tasks or project. You don’t have to worry about payroll, vacation pay, employee benefits or sick days. There is no need to purchase additional office space, software or equipment, and no employee downtime for training.

Where is Boccone Creative located?

Boccone Creative is located in Pickering, Ontario, Canada, just 20 minutes east of Toronto. However, physical location is not a barrier to a virtual assistant, and Janet is able to help businesses worldwide.
