The Virtual Latinos Team

Jaime Nacach
San Diego, California. USA
Founder and CEO

Virtual Latinos is made possible thanks to the great local members and Latino virtual assistants. 

None of this would be possible without the dedication, creativity, expertise, and professionalism of everyone who’s a part of our team. I invite you to learn more about our team, so you can get to know us better, and understand what we’re here for.

I’m originally from Mexico City, but live in the beautiful city of San Diego, California – which borders Tijuana, Mexico. Before creating Virtual Latinos, I did have a virtual assistant from Mexico – and then I realized how many other businesses and entrepreneurs I could help by connecting more people from Latin America with people in the United States, Canada and the world.

Tip for New Clients: Before you start hiring, write down a list of the tasks you need help with – all of them. Then think which you could outsource to a VA.

Tip for New VAs: If you want to stand out when you apply to work as a Latino VA, make sure you answer all of our application questions with detail, examples, and “show us” rather than “tell us” what you can do

Ezequiel Nacach
Los Angeles, California. USA
Vice President & Accountant

Hi, I’m Ezequiel Nacach. I’m originally from Mexico City, but have been blessed to call the United States home for over 15 years. I’m also Jaime’s father, and part of Virtual Latino’s strategy, business administration and accounting team.

I’m very excited to be part of the Virtual Latinos team, helping to build it and make it grow as a business. My goal is to take care of the time-consuming business administration tasks, so Jaime can focus on using his time to grow the business, build partnerships, build resources for our VAs and clients, and help it become an ever-growing community of amazing Latino virtual assistants for years to come.

Tip for New Clients: I recommend any potential customer to look at the problems other people are having when hiring assistants from the Philippines, India or elsewhere in Asia, such as the language barriers, timezones, and cultural differences, so you can value the option to hire virtual assistants from Latin America.

Additionally, our thorough process of screening and pre-vetting virtual assistants that are part of our community is one of the key factors of our client’s success. Why? Because by making the application process hard, doing 1-on-1 interviews and hand-picking the best virtual assistant for our clients – we can match our clients’ specific staffing needs and requirements with the best virtual assistants who can take care and complete tasks right away.

Think of our virtual assistant services, as boutique, higher-end recruitment and staffing services, at a fraction of the cost of traditional human resources and recruitment agencies. Our entire company works remotely (virtually, naturally), so we can all focus on what we do best – help you!

Tip for New VAs:I recommend all the VA’s to look at the many advantages of working with Virtual Latinos, such as getting better payment rates per hour, working in your same time zone, the ability to have part-time or full time work and more. You can usually start working right away, as our process to find to create the perfect match between customers and VA’s is fairly quick (Just 7 days), yet hand-tailored to our customer’s and VA’s needs, so both parties can feel comfortable working together.

Additionally, I suggest to prepare yourself, learn how to use more software programs and skills to improve the variety of work you can be a great fit more, and be able to earn more money.

Finally, keep in mind that we don’t make it easy to be accepted into VL, so if you are already part of our community, it means you can or will be able to leave your regular day-job now (or soon) and earn much more money than you do today by working through Virtual Latinos remotely. You’ll have the great advantage to be your own boss and work from home.

If you know anyone with great potential or the need to work as a virtual assistant, don’t hesitate to recommend them to join us, and help them get prepared as well,so they can also be accepted into the VL community.

GUATEMALA
Marketer and Head of Recruiting

Hi my name is Cinthya, and I’ve been working virtually from home for almost 2 years now, I started working directly with Jaime and then started helping him with Virtual Latinos when the company started working. For a long time I had the idea, that working from home doing what I love, was my dream job. So I was pretty excited when I got hired. I’ve been able to learn a lot of new skills from digital marketing to recruiting and much more. Before working for Virtual Latinos I had an office job for several years, and I can say for sure, I would never want to go back to an office.

I love working for Virtual Latinos, for a lot of reasons, but mainly because I believe that having an outsourced team and working from home, is not the future but the present. And I feel very proud of being part of this company, as one of the pioneers in Latin America. I also love connecting talented professionals with great companies in North America. It feels great to be part of such a tech-based but human-connected team. I really like to see the company growing and succeeding and I want to be part of that growth as a professional.

Tip for New Clients: Schedule a call and start the process, don’t overthink it. Latin America has great professionals eager to help your company succeed. So if you’re looking for a virtual assistant, this is the place to be.

Tip for New VAs: I have a lot of advice, but mainly be very persistent, Apply and apply until you find the best fit for you, don’t give up. And also READ INSTRUCTIONS and focus on details. If you are detail-oriented and are motivated enough to make research, watch tutorials, take new courses and do whatever it takes in order to be the best, believe me, YOU WILL SUCCEED AS A VA.

San Diego, California. USA
Business Development Rep

My name is Yener Benaroya and I am originally from Istanbul, Turkey. I speak fluently English, Spanish and Turkish. I bring to Virtual Latinos (VL) my professional experience in sales and marketing that I have for over 20 years.

My main goal in VL is to guide clients to find the correct team member that they are looking for and need. I want to help companies understand and adapt to the new virtual working environment which is changing the dynamic of the world’s jobs.

I love working as part of the VL team because I believe in the mission that we have. We are the most customer-oriented and success-driven VA company in the market. This company is focused on bringing success not only to the companies but also to our great virtual assistants (VAs).

Tip for New Clients: The most important tip that I would give as a recommendation to a client before hiring a VA is to analyze in which area or tasks that you need the help to start with. Take everything step by step and trust that we will be there to help you find what you need.

Tip for New VAs: To all our fellow VAs, the most important message that I can give is that communication is the key. Many clients are new to the idea of hiring people remotely and so they depend on your communication skills. Make sure you create the best kind of link between you and the client.

HONDURAS
Admin Assistant

Hello!! My name is Roberta, I’m proud to say I belong to the team of Virtual Latinos.

I’m from, Tegucigalpa Honduras, and let me tell you, the first time I heard of Virtual Latinos I was impressed but mostly grateful. Grateful that there was a place where many talented Latin American people could have the chance to work with business owners from North America. And have a chance to shine and work very hard for them and their families from their homes. Since working remotely is not an option for many in their own countries, Virtual Latinos bring so many opportunities to many students, business people, talented people, and many more people eager to work and give their best.

I love working with Virtual Latinos because this doesn’t feel thousands and thousands of miles away even though we are, it feels warm, cheerful, and connected, it honestly feels like a huge family.
We try every day our best to be in communication with all our VAs and with our team and that brings us together in many beautiful ways.
Each personality brings something different to the table and that’s the diversity I much enjoy from Virtual Latinos.

Tip for New Clients: My best tip for a new client would be to take the time to train your VA on what you need, look at that time as an investment so further on they’ll become self-sufficient on the matters you need them to take care of.

Tip for New VAs: My best piece of advice for new VAs is to apply, apply, and apply for job offers. It might take you hours(if done correctly), but this is time invested in something that will bring you back so much more. Give your best in everything you do, and you’ll be rewarded.

COLOMBIA
Recruitment Specialist

I am Daniela, I have a BA in English and French from Colombia. I have experience working in different areas, but mainly in recruiting for the summer camp industry in the US. I joined Virtual Latinos because I saw an opportunity for professional growth within the community and because working as a recruitment assistant would give me the opportunity to work in what I love most, which is helping others find their ideal job.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Talent Aquisition Specialist

Hi, I am Julio. Proudly born, raised, and currently living in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Working remotely has been an amazing, beneficial experience! As the go-to person and sometimes first point of contact for job seekers when they start the application process, I aim to ensure the best caliber of future Virtual Assistants entering our platform, by screening them in the first stage of Recruitment, keeping communication with them, and providing support on further stages. I have developed most of my career in tourism-related businesses, but my background is actually a little diverse, including HR-related studies/job functions, and other industries like BPO and Retail.

What I love the most about this company is the emphasis on efficiency without letting this undermine quality, as well as the fact that this team feels like a family! Collaborative work is not just a cool business concept here, it is our daily reality! I am very satisfied with my contribution to connecting talented Latin people with US/Canada jobs, elevating both the businesses’ performance and the assistants’ professional growth.

Tips for New Clients: Someone who works virtually/remotely can be equally or even more productive than a regular employee physically based in your office. If you are still not convinced, the best proof that it works to have a Virtual Assistant is ourselves!! The Virtual Latinos staff members are located in different countries and work together to make this happen for you.

Once you hire someone (and even before) it is very important that you make time to plan, deliver, and adjust your onboarding process of this new team member, and follow up with them and with us (the agency) on a regular basis.

Tips for New VAs: Exercise self-awareness so you can capitalize on your strengths, manage your weaknesses, and sell yourself more confidently!

Also, by acting with integrity, keeping constant communication, and delivering what is expected from you, trust will flourish between you and your employer in a way that you will be surprised. So, never lose the focus on that. Trust is everything!
