We had the good fortune of connecting with Jaime Nacach and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jaime, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
Even though I moved to the US at a young age, I always felt highly connected to my country of birth, Mexico, and wanted to find a way to give back. I volunteered with the local San Diego Mexican-Jewish community for 12 years, and then had the idea of building Virtual Latinos, a company that would allow me to follow my dream of building a business that would let me help people along the way.

When I launched Virtual Latinos, I set as my main goal to build a company that would become a 3-way service for all parties involved. A platform where clients would be able to save time and money by hiring professionals from Latin America, talent from Latin America would earn a better hourly rate than in their home countries, and our company would connect clients and VAs, building a large community with great social impact.
To this day, we’ve helped 400+ companies delegate time-consuming tasks and focus on their growth and we’ve assisted 600+ professionals in finding their dream remote jobs.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?

Here’s what I’d like everyone to know about Virtual Latinos. Our priority is to connect entrepreneurs and business owners from the US, Canada, and Europe who need to delegate time-consuming tasks to focus on growing their companies, with experienced professionals from Latin America who want to work remotely and earn a better income than in their home countries.
Currently, I’m very excited about the growth Virtual Latinos has had in a short period of time. We’ve grown our internal team from 28 to 41 members in just a couple of months, and will soon be hiring more people to join us as we continue to expand. I’m most excited about what that growth represents: we’ve helped over 400 companies hire Virtual Assistants and Virtual Professionals that help them grow their business and helped more than 600 professionals find their dream remote jobs.
I’m proud to say that I’ve had the opportunity to achieve my dream of starting and owning my own company. Whether the company failed or succeeded, it was a dream I had and I’m lucky to say that I’ve achieved it so far.

Of course, there have been challenges along the way.

My first company, Bloominari, was a marketing agency that didn’t grow to its potential. Still, all I learned in Blominari, plus my past job experience regarding clients, contractors, strategies, and mistakes I made, led me to create Virtual Latinos in a different and more successful way.

I believe that one of the most important lessons I’ve learned is the value of hiring the right team members. When you hire the right people, people that believe in what you’re doing, have the same passion and are as dedicated as you are, your business will definitely grow faster.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love San Diego, and this isn’t actually a hypothetical question. In fact, when friends who live abroad come to visit, I take them around town to see!

For a quick 1-day tour:

1. First stop would be Coronado Island. Walk around the ferry landing, then drive to the other side to see the open beach next to Hotel del Coronado.

2. Visit Downtown San Diego. Either drive or cross from Coronado to Seaport Village, walk around the shops, eat something and then walk around the Headquarters. From there, walk towards 5th Ave in the Gaslamp District.

3. Grab something to eat. I personally love Burger lounge downtown, so that would probably be one of my choices. Otherwise, we could just walk around and let them preferably pick a place they’d like to eat at, there are plenty of options.

4. Balboa Park. It’s a great and quick stop. We would spend around one hour walking around the park and gardens and going inside the botanical gardens. Then, we would also stop at the “International village” of small houses from around the world; it’s very interesting!

5. Hillcrest. Then, we would go walk around here to give them an intro to another part of the city.

6. Point Loma. Before dinner, we’d go to Point Loma for a spectacular view of the city.

7. Dinner/Sunset at Liberty Station. We’d probably finish the tourist visits here and have dinner. I personally love to eat at Soda & Swine

8. Little Italy. For Drinks and dessert!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to give a shout-out to someone that helped me with Virtual Latinos in the early days, one of our mentors: Steve Morley.

He provided free consulting for our business when we were starting. Steve helped us create our pricing models, figure out how to grow our team, what are the best ways to make payments internally, how to target the right clients, define the services we wanted to provide, and more.

Over four years later, I can assure you that Steven’s advice has been completely invaluable, and super helpful, and he’s someone that has directly impacted our company’s success!
