There is a strange phenomenon brewing in the Philippine community. Most everyone has that relative: the one who quit his job and turned towards virtual assistant work. Furthermore, a constant buzz runs on the internet about opportunities of earning a hefty salary in the comfort of home.

Organizations such as KOM Academy and individuals like Jomar Hilario (When in Manila) begin to gain acclaim as excellent gateways to the industry.
Should it be a surprise that Filipinos have been quick to grab this opportunity? After all, in every technological advancement, the Philippines has managed to set the world record.
