    Hey, Shay! I love your post but I want to ask: Is there any company that hires virtual assistants worldwide? I see most of the companies only hire from the US, Canadá, and Europe. No idea why this might be but just wanted to ask you.

    Hi, Lashay. This is day one (minute one) of a search for the possibilities for a VA position for my wife. Spanish speaking native, pretty good English. Interior designer, works for engineering firm working with Power Utilities, worked for years with Coca-Cola corp in Colombia. Needs to work from home. Where would be a good place to search for opportunities concentrating on the Spanish connection?
