Project Description


A good friend told me about the success he’s had with Virtual Assistants from the Philippines. He currently has fifteen full time assistants and when he told me about the cost effectiveness (he’s paying $400 monthly for the services I need) and quality I decided to give it a try. The best part is everyone comes out ahead because the pay can be considerably higher that what is locally available in your area.

I’m looking to fill the position quickly.

I’m open to a VA being from anywhere so long as quality and service are superb, they are EASY to understand on the phone, and they have some availability during US business hours.

Thank You for reviewing this project.

SAN FRANCISCO - David Halberstam, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer who chronicled the Vietnam War generation, civil rights and the world of sports, was killed in a car crash Monday, his wife and local authorities said. He was 73.

Halberstam, of New York, was a passenger in a car that was broadsided by another vehicle in Menlo Park, south of San Francisco, San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault said. The cause of death appeared to be internal injuries, he said.

The accident occurred around 10:30 a.m., and Halberstam was declared dead at the scene, Menlo Park Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman said.
