How did you get into this niche?
I created the company based on my own experience in online dating. I was consumed by my career as a marketing executive, and it was starting to kill my dating life… until one day it dawned on me. Online dating didn’t have to be a part-time commitment. I could develop a systematic process that any skilled writer could follow to set up dates on my behalf.

Is it a growth area?  Where do you see the industry going in the next 5-10 years?
I do think it is a growth area. This niche market is rather untouched, and as it is more accepted by the public I see the industry growing over the  next 5-10 years.

    A common problem with VA employers seems to be that clients want to pay very little for very high quality service from a highly competent VA, which pushes Westerners to Eastern markets, causing lack of English skills to be a main complaint. Clients who pay more for VA’s in their own countries or who at least have good English skills generally left more positive comments.
