How to Work with a Virtual Assistant; Cultural Differences
In This Article
Working with a Virtual Assitant (VA) from a different culture is not always easy. In this podcast, I talk about my own experience and how you can benefit from this as well. Overcoming the Cultural differences is usually the biggest hurdle to take when it comes to working with a VA.
It’s not Powerpoint or Dropbox or any other technical platforms that will make or break your relationship with a VA. It’s the cultural differences that will. Pay attention to those and things will run smooth. If you don’t things could get a lot rougher.
