I would guess that real estate reality TV shows have done more harm to more investors over the last several years than any of us can comprehend. The thrill and excitement of watching a couple of regular guys buy and fix a property for $100,000 and (maybe) sell it for $125,000! “Wow – Can you […]

For years, I’ve used virtual assistants (VA’s) for small, mundane tasks that required very little skill. I imagine when most people think about using a VA in their business, it’s usually limited to very simple projects that don’t require much, if any training.
