Get to Know Mary Durbin

What can Durbin's Virtual Assistants do for you?  We will save you time and money! We will handle all of the tasks you’ve either been procrastinating doing or simply do not have the time to do.

As a Virtual Assistant, I can help you with everything from administrative assistance to marketing, website design, bookkeeping, transcription and the list goes on and on.

As a small business owner, did you know that trying to do everything yourself is costing you 40-60% in lost revenue?

If I could give you 5-10 hours per week away from your administrative and marketing tasks and allow you to use that 5-10 hours with your own paying clients - how much more money could you make each week? 

What would 5-10 hours of face time with your clients do for your business?

  • No insurance, 401k contributions, workman’s comp or other related benefits.
  • No office space required!
  • NO training required in most cases!
  • Have more time to spend on money generating activities!

Whatever your needs are we can help you.  If you can dictate it we can transcribe it!


Follow these tips to ensure a smooth, accurate, and cost-effective transcription process.

  • Check the recorder each time to ensure that it is working properly.

  • Replace batteries periodically. Weak batteries cause fluctuation in recording speed and volume.

  • Record at the recorder’s highest volume.

  • During interviews or conferences, balance microphones between speakers or directly in front of each participant so all voices are heard by the transcriptionist.

  • Micro cassette recording: record on 2.5 speed for best quality.

  • Digital recordings, CDs, DVDs: Indicate what format audio has been saved to, i.e., MP3, wav, dss, WMA, etc.

  • Tell us what the outcome of your project is so we won’t spend time and money transcribing any information that is not required.

Building your business, online or a storefront, is something of great pride to the entrepreneur. I know exactly what that means. However, it’s a lot to handle on your own. There’s so much to do. Much of it takes away from the very thing that you went into business for in the first place.

What you need is more than just someone who you can hand tasks and projects off to. What you truly need is someone you can also run ideas by, brainstorm with, and partner with to help you build your business to the level you’ve always dreamed of.  Someone with a heartfelt interest in your success.

If that’s the kind of relationship you would like to have with your assistant, then please call me today!
