I’ve been talking a lot about hiring virtual assistance, and this is very different than outsourcing to Elance or Upwork. This is about hiring people who you build a relationship with and become a part of your team. Which is why I wanted to interview John Jonas of OnlineJobs.ph. OnlineJobs.ph specifically works with people from the Philippines, which is huge for cultural reasons, and they way OnlineJobs vets their experts is really cool!! I am super passionate about this because it has helped my business so much… it honestly has taken our business to the next level!
So I started my outsourcing adventure like most people do, through websites like Upwork. I was having some success but it all honesty it turned in to a full time job having to manage all the different freelancers that we were hiring to complete work for us. In certain situations I felt like I was being taken advantage of, and there was a lot of inconsistency from job to job. I just knew that there had to be a solution. Through our experiences, we’ve found that the values of the people in the Philippines is in very line with ours as a company. So in this interview John Jonas talks about why the amazing people of this country are so incredible to work with.
John describes the qualities that exist in the Philippines that make them such an amazing group of people to work with. Their culture embodies honesty. They are some of the most honest people you will ever meet.

John’s best advice on why you should take the leap in hiring virtual help.
He has helped thousands or entrepreneurs succeed by teaching them how to replace themselves through outsourcing. They succeed as they stop doing the grunt work in the business and become the CEO.
While making a full-time living he rarely works full time. His team of 12 full-time Filipino virtual assistants do the work in his businesses, while he manages the process. They range from programmers, designers, and webmasters, to writers, researchers, a project manager, and just general VA’s.
John has made millions of dollars online directly from work that his Filipino workers have done for him and now teaches others exactly how to do the same thing.
