I like to ask my virtual assistant for feedback before making big decisions regarding my online business.
Since he has worked with me very closely since the beginning of one of my major online projects, I know I can trust him with his judgment when I ask him for his judgment when I asked him about anything.
Recently, I came across a seemingly great online service. Of course, it was not free. I fell for the charm of many of its sales letters and was just about to make a major purchase online.
Fortunately, I asked my virtual assistant for a final check-up on this. Sure enough, he researched the topic in depth. He quickly found out that many of the review pages are, of course, from the affiliates of this online project. But after he researched some more, he found a forum where they discussed the product controversially.
For my information, he also researched some alternative reviews from the competitors of this service. What I liked the most about the review that my virtual assistant wrote for me is that he provided all the links to the research for me to look into if I wanted some deeper insights.
But because he knows that I’m short on time, he always wrote something like “but if you are pressed for time, don’t read this. Read this resume.” And then he condensed all the information down to a compact size which was easy for me to read in 5 minutes.
In other words, my virtual assistant researched for me worth 10 hours, saved me money worth a hundred bucks per month and I needed to invest a time of about 5 minutes.
It was not only efficient, it was almost magical.
No, I’m not trying to exaggerate here. This was a very wise decision. I’ll be sure to ask my virtual assistant for his advice the next time I’m about to do a major online purchase.

by: JomvieSometimes we have the tendency to be clouded with our judgment especially when we are blinded from its sweet offers and shiny perks. And it’s always good to ask for a second opinion from a neutral person. 😀
