UPDATE: This is a correction to a post I wrote this week called, “Outsourcing Site Zirtual Goes Bye Bye…Don’t Panic.”
Great news…you really don’t have to panic…
Zirtual is BACK!
Yep — just like that.
In the blink of an eye all those annoying tasks you didn’t want to do yourself — can be outsourced to a Zirtual assistant again!
I’ve rarely had to cover breaking news on this blog — I reserve that for my day job as a TV producer. But I’m excited to bring you this up-to-the-minute update.
I heard from the CEO at Startups.co, which bought out Zirual after their payroll snafu. Wil Schroter wrote via email:
We bought the company and are operating as per before. Your article is inaccurate. Happy to answer questions.
I didn’t realize they had gotten operations up and running so quickly.
Well that’s fabulous and that means you need to get going on that to-do list you’ve been putting off. And by get to… I mean give it to someone else to do!
Outsourcing is your friend.
Sometimes Productivity Falls Through the Cracks
I have to admit when I got this email from Wil my heart sank. I thought, “oh no! I got it wrong! I let my readers down.”
You see — as a producer working in news — “getting it right” is something that is really important to me — really it’s the only thing that matters.
I’m sorry I got this one wrong. When I published that first post — the Zirtual blog still said it was in limbo and to stay tuned so that’s what I went with.
As soon as I learned about the update though — I preempted the blog post that was supposed to run today so I could bring you the most accurate information.
Sometimes productivity and accuracy does fall through the cracks. We are all human — remember not to be too hard on yourself today.
Thanks for understanding about my oversight and I hope you’re just as excited as I am that Zirtual is back!
