How to Find and work with a virtual assistant

Wouldn’t it be great to have an assistant at your beck and call? All you’d need to do is hit the intercom on your desk, and like a flash, they appear!  Unfortunately, that’s beyond the means of most small business owners. Many of them work out of their home.
