There is an interesting discussion going on at ZenHabits.net about using a VA and the differences between using a professional, versus someone who doesn’t have the same experience or skills and therefore charges cheaper. If you’re interested in joining in, why not go pay a visit?
I recently joined a new yahoogroups forum (do I really need to belong to another one?) about the Four Hour Working Week. It’s funny that this book is about a lot of things to help people make better use of their time and yet everyone I hear from has zoomed into the VA versus cheap labour thing. Is that all the readers are interested in?
By the way – for those who don’t know. I’m in Australia and use the Aussie/UK version of the written English language. So if a word I spell looks like an error to you – it’s probably not. We tend to spell words ending in ‘ise’ instead of ‘ize’ and ‘our’ instead of ‘or’. That’s something that many VAs learn when servicing clients in other countries – the differences in the written language, but also the differences in meanings of words.
