Many businesses hire Virtual Assistants to support their work and to free up their time. Because Virtual Assistants can help in a range of areas their services can be suitable for many different types of businesses. Virtual Assistants are hired by freelancers and entrepreneurs as well as larger businesses.
The clients that I am working with currently range from a relatively new business with almost 100 employees to individuals running their service-based businesses by themselves.
All businesses need help as they grow and delegation can be a key part of this. Delegating straightforward tasks such as scheduling meetings or answering emails, can give small business owners the time to focus on the tasks that only they can do - producing their product, coaching their clients, providing their consultancy service, etc. You might also want to look at this as freeing yourself of non-income generation work, so you can focus on the parts of your business that bring in profit.
