Save Time using Virtual Assistants

In the book, ‘The 4 hour Workweek’ by Tim Ferriss,  it explains how to create and maintain the life you want while still making a decent living. One of the points he made is to hire a virtual assistant. I know, sounds crazy but he made some interesting points. These assistants are located overseas so they’re cheap. Once they are trained, they will do everything from ordering your mother flowers to inputing products onto Amazon. There’s an assistant for everyone- some are more expensive than others while others will charge in 5 minute increments. Ferriss made a great point: Why waste your time doing meaningless work that will cost you pennies to outsource, when you can be working on the bigger projects that will make and create more room for more money.

Here’s a list of assistants given in the book:
