    What are creative ways you have employed virtual assistants to make your life easier?

    What are the most common challenges and how did you overcome them?

    What advice would you give someone considering hiring a virtual assistant but hesitant to do so?

    In order to get a good VA you have to pay better rates - and for that there are other European countries you can hire from. I am not saying there aren't good, cheap VA's but from my experience it takes a while to find them. Task dependant too, of course.

    Language barrier can be difficult. I work strictly with Filipino VAs for this very reason.
