Are you good at math? Here's a simple calculation for today.

Virtual assistant manager salary \$257/month
Virtual assistant salary \$185/month
Internet cost: \$110/month
Electricity and some other BS: \$20/month

Work hours in a month: 45 hours per week times 4 = 180 hours per month per person

Don't forget the capital:
Rent a space: \$1030/year
A decent computer: \$412 each

Let's say you have 1 manager and 3 assistant.

The capital needed: \$1030+(\$412*3) = \$2266

Monthly cost: \$257 + \$555 + \$110 + \$20 = \$942/month

Also, don't forget once a year, you must give a bonus worth one month of salary.

So, how many work hours do we have?

4 person * 180 = 720 hours per month

Operating cost: \$942/720 hours = \$1.3/hour
-------------------------------------------------

Yes, those are real numbers, in my country. You can get hard working english speaking VA in abundance here. You can tell them to do anything, as long as not morally or ethically wrong.

What will you do with them?

What I can suggest is:

- find some really good one's, I mean really. You have lot's of choices to pick from, use it wisely.
- Differenciate between labour workers who do what you tell them by plan &
- people, who work with their creativity - give these people more freedom & inspiration. They will make you grow bigger.
- Spend 20% of all work forces to build on own ideas, developing products, etc.
