What you also get when working with me is something you don’t find with any other VA Training Provider in the UK and that’s the personal touch. The program and the support you receive gets personalised to each person undertaking the training.
There are a lot of VA training and coaching courses out there, with so many of them being impersonal and fully automated courses. You get sent a vast array of information and left to do with it what you can (sometimes nothing). The information is cribbed from snippets they have picked up here and there, then cobbled together from what they learnt on their training courses, perhaps prepping you on the general tasks and skills that are required to become a VA. Your questions go unanswered, you feel unsupported and you are left floundering. Not good!
Well when you work with me – it’s the complete opposite, I am here with you inspiring, challenging you and supporting you to be an “Awesome” VA Business Owner.
Our new Kick Start Your VA Business – 12 week Programme is an affordable, inspiring and challenging programme designed to support you through the process of setting up and launching your VA business in just 12 weeks or less.
