Florien started in a relative new market in the Netherlands, many entrepreneurs don’t know what a Virtual Assistant is. She has to explain what she does. On the other hand the entrepreneurs that do know what a virtual assistant can do for you, only can choose from a few good Dutch virtual assistants.
