The Question Melanie Enjoys Explaining:
"Why you should hire a US-based staff?"
The US-based staff person is familiar with the laws of the US, they're familiar with the regulations, they're familiar with business practices, they're familiar with the currency, and they're familiar with the terminology.
If you want that person who just understands, is in your time zone, understands the culture of the US, and understands business practices and applies that excellence of service. That's why you should hire a US-based virtual assistant.
And I don't mean to take away from any foreign virtual assistant that is a unicorn in their field. There are gems all over the world. But for me and my company, I found our jewelry box in the US.
“I'm here to provide people who live in the United States a working wage and a work-life balance without having to worry about 'I need to work 84 hours a week just so I can put food on my table'." – Melanie Koerperich
