Tips on hiring digital assistant for 1-2 hours a day

What are good places to look for a digital assistant? I know there are services who act as the middleman in the transaction, has anyone used those successfully? Are there ones I should avoid? What questions should I ask a potential digital assistant?

I need someone who will keep a schedule for me, manage my to do list and do some data entry and possibly phone calls for me. I'd like someone who I could call during the day with info and leave a message on google voice, then they would enter it on my online calendar or google docs. I'd like to talk to them in the morning around 7 am eastern us time.
I did try one of those services in India as recommended in 4 Hour Week. There was a language and communication problem, they had a minimum of 4 hours each day and I didn't have nearly enough work. I need someone who knows English well and is familiar with US business practices.
