If you are considering a career as a virtual assistant (VA), it is good to know the tools that can help you to be an efficient and effective worker. A great part of working as a VA is collaboration and sharing files with the members of your team and even your manager.

One great tool that you can use for synchronizing and sharing files is Dropbox. I've prepared a short tutorial on how to use Dropbox. 

This incredible tool takes the usb disk out of the equation by putting a folder in your computer where you can store your files, constantly sync this folder, and giving easy options for sharing your files. It allows you to create a Dropbox account, which you can log into to gain access to your files--wherever you can go online. Founded in 2007 by Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi, Dropbox offers both paid and free services, and each service has different options. A good come-on for frequent users is their additional storage space. With free service, you begin with a 2GB allotted space which can increase up to 8GB if you invite others to use it. 

Here is the tutorial. For better viewing, enable full screen view.
