About John Jonas:

John Jonas helped thousands of entrepreneurs succeed in their business by doing outsourcing differently. He created the world’s largest website for finding Filipino Virtual Assistants,, which has over 500,000 Filipino resumes and over 100,000 employers from around the world using it.

John is an entrepreneur who’s not just dreaming of changing hundreds of thousands of lives, he’s actually doing it! He wants entrepreneurs and business owners to know how hiring Filipino VAs can help them accomplish time freedom. John had a normal "job" for 8 months after college and his biggest goal at that time was to be able to quit that job. He managed to quit back in 2004 and worked from home for himself ever since then. It was in 2006 that he first hired someone from the Philippines, he immediately knew he was onto something special.

What's really great about hiring Filipino workers is how it changed their lives as well. They get to work from home, earn above average income, enjoy a generally higher standard of living, and raise their children by themselves which is a luxury most Filipino parents don't get to do.
