By now you have all the great ways that hiring a VA can make your life easier, from everything to managing your calendar to handling your customer service calls.

When it comes to being a virtual assistant or a client using one, the tools of effective communication are especially needed. It is one of the many parts of business and relationships that we take pride in. Here are the four most important elements of communication: Listening, Calculating, Responding, and Doing.
