An interesting thing happened while I continually searching for information on how I can develop my skill as a Virtual Assistant.

I like Mr. Ducker for his passion and talent to share his knowledge about virtual life most especially the life of a Virtual Assistant. He is not only a nice guy but a nice boss and mentor. I downloaded his podcast about Virtual Assistant and I enjoy listening to it.
Chris Ducker owns an Outsourcing Company in Cebu, Philippines where he trains young Filipinos to become effective, responsible, skilled and highly qualified Virtual Assistants. Because he knows that employers need to have a reliable VAs working for their business, his goal in business is to provide entrepreneurs the kind of VAs they need to work for their project and company.
If you are a business owner, manager, or project contractor and is looking for highly commendable individuals for your business and company offshore, you may as well consider Chris Ducker’s services offered in his Virtual Staff Finder website where you can know how and when to hire VA, what to know about the Filipino VAs, and why hire a Filipino VA?
