Dear Client,

Welcome to INNOVATE!, an administrative resource for small business owners. INNOVATE! is a product of Cybertary, a professional Virtual Assisting company. In these monthly emails we will be giving you numerous resources and tips you can use in your business, your home, your office and your life!
It's starting to heat up a little around here. We hope you're also starting to enjoy some warmer weather in your neck of the woods.
In INNOVATE! this month, it's all about simplifying your life€€because, let's face it, we can never learn too many tips about that. In her "Simplifying Your Small Business Filing System" article, Patricia Beckman shares a bit of Cybertary's "special sauce" by letting you in on her super-simple filing system. Then we compiled "150 Ways to Use a Cybertary," which is packed full of ways in which hiring Cybertary can simplify work and life for you.
As we tumble quickly toward the lazy days of summer, we hope you find many ways to keep things simple in your life. That's what we're all about here at Cybertary, and we hope our monthly tips add a little sweet simplicity to your every day.



Simplifying Your Small Business Filing System

I admit it. I'm a bit of a Filing Fanatic. At any given moment, I like to know the exact location of all the necessary documents I may need. In fact, I don't like giving a single minute of my precious time to the task of searching around my desk. Instead, I love the feeling I get when I need a specific document and am able to make my move to the right file in one single, quick and systematic movement. Okay, so you don't have to get this excited about your filing system; however, as a small business owner, you should have a system that works simply for you. Here's a peek at Cybertary's simplified filing system that can work well for any small business.
So many of our clients have such complicated filing systems that they never find the time to maintain them and even avoid filing entirely. Instead of being able to locate a needed document easily, they spend time shuffling through mounds of random paper. This is not an efficient use of time.
Here's the problem: Oftentimes business owners create separate files for each vendor, customer, bank account, etc. Then they sort the file types alphabetically and end up with many folders with single pieces of paper and many others that are overflowing. When those files need to be cleared out periodically or archived, they either have to go through each file and purge the contents or start over from scratch.

Cybertary's "Patriot Policy"  
Cybertary Remains Loyal to U.S. and Canada
It is Cybertary's position and policy to hire only workers within the U.S. and Canada and to not send any work overseas. For the security of our clients and their confidential information, we believe this policy is a positive, proactive and vitally important one. Clients who work with Cybertary can have the confidence and reassurance of knowing that we keep our workers local and are able to thereby protect their best interests under the laws, insurance policies and identity theft protections that are in place in the U.S. and Canada. In addition, our clients can depend on the consistency of our highly skilled local professionals and the gained efficiency and time and financial savings that comes with hiring such high-quality support.
Cybertary was founded on the principle of being a way to support those who want the benefit of work and life balance. The same principle should be applied to both the administrative professional who wants a flexible work schedule while earning a worthy wage, and the overwhelmed business owner who wants to alleviate some of their administrative burden. Both parties should have the confidence that their best interests will be protected.
When working with Cybertary, our clients have the confidence that they are working within the infrastructure of a franchise system, complete with operating standards and legal agreements. Cybertary's policies and systems truly offer a win/win for all parties involved.

Tune in to hear about the emerging role of Cybertary in the workplace, how we are able to guarantee consistent high quality work through our diversely talented team, and how you might never miss a family function again.
