Virtual assistant proximity
How necessary is it for my virtual assistant to live near me?
Not only is it not necessary for a virtual assistant to live near you, it's very unlikely that such will be the case. By definition, this relationship doesn't require face-to-face management, since work is delivered and communication is conducted via the Internet, email, instant messaging, fax, phone, courier and snail mail.
An important part of any professional virtual assistant's job is to make you feel comfortable with the working relationship regardless of the physical distance between the two of you.
