Virtual Assistants for Everyday People

Tim Ferriss' 4 Hour Work Week inspired me to at least try using a virtual assitant for a month to learn how to better manage people, and perhaps make my life a little easier in the process.

As much as I hate the smell and taste of apple cider vinegar, it seriously is a life saver when you have the flu. My mom swears by this stuff and (still) has to coax me into drinking 1 cup of it whenever I get the flu. Yes, I have thrown up after guzzling a cup of it, but I still woke up feeling 80% better than the day before! Seriously, the body aches and hot and ...
