The fact is everything on your to-do list has to be done. Our goal is to show you that you don't have to do it all by yourself.
We believe if you don't have time to do your best work, you're handcuffing your effectiveness. We love seeing what our clients achieve once we start assisting them to reclaim that precious time.
We're passionate about using our years of experience as Executive Assistants in companies like AOL and Virgin to exceed your expectations, whilst supporting our families.
We work from home all over the U.S. and love the flexibility it brings. It's this flexibility that benefits you too - because you get our vast experience and skills at a fraction of the cost of hiring. We proud to offer only Virtual Assistants who live and work in the UK.
Time etc in numbers
Founded in the summer of 2007
10,000+ happy clients served
2,029,381 tasks done with love
It all started almost 40 years ago when Penni Pike, head of our Virtual Assistant team, became Sir Richard Branson's executive assistant. Penni remained Sir Richard's closest assistant for 32 years as he built the Virgin empire, working on his houseboat in London and even appearing in his auto-biography 'Losing my Virginity'.
When I met Penni, I was a busy CEO, struggling to get everything done each day. I knew that I needed help, but I didn't have quite enough on my plate to keep a full-time executive assistant busy.
Then it clicked! We could use Penni's extraordinary experience to build the world's very best network of part-time Virtual Assistants, and make virtual assistance available to everyone, not just those that want to hire.
Today, we've helped more than 10,000 people to save time and do their best work, as well as providing meaningful work to hundreds of home-based assistants.
I'd love to hear from you, my email is below.

When I listed all the things I had to do, my new VA left me a comment on the list saying "Take it one thing at a time and you'll get there". I loved her from that moment on because she got me. Like, she did what I've done for others - felt what they couldn't say and spoke right to that. I appreciate her support (in all the ways she provides it!) - thanks Dianna! #timeetc @timeetc

I love my team. Some of whom have been with me for a very long time. Recently I needed some very specific skills and I found a #virtualassistant on #timeetc who fit the bill and freed up more time to work on my business instead of in it. She makes me feel smarter already. #worksmartnotharder I have @secretsushi to thank for the suggestion. 😊
