It was a part of a GMA series called “Take Control of Your Life” and this pieced focused on virtual assistants.GMA Margaret - Sept 2007.jpg(Virtual Margaret, left, and GMA Reporter Tory Johnson on Good Morning America – ABCNews photo)GMA Correspondent Tory Johnson reported, “Virtual assistants are a rapidly growing trend, driven by a few key factors: the desire of employees to maintain more control over their work styles, demand from businesses to lower costs and improve efficiencies, and the availability of technology that enables both sides to connect.” There is now even an International Virtual Assistants Association.You can also view the broadcast story of Virtual Margaret and her interview with Diane Sawyer on the video part of this website…the video is entitled, “Take Control – Work from Home.”
