The VA Help Desk – VA Training Academy® is a monthly membership site for Virtual Assistants who want affordable yet practical support to build and grow their VA business. 

I know what it is like to be a VA at home, trying to build and grow the VA business, when really all I wanted to do was brainstorm issues with other like minded VA business owners, instead I felt isolated.

Often you have left your corporate job / job in the ‘real world’ to set up on your own in order that you have a ‘better work / life balance’. But the reality is very different when you spend all day working ‘IN’ your business supporting clients and then have to find the time to work ‘ON’ your business to build and grow it.

It is highly likely you have the great transferrable skills of being a PA or an EA but don’t know how to position those skills to attract the right clients to your VA business.

The systems that you implement for your clients are not there in your own business and so your business growth slows.

Does any of this sound familiar? Do you know what I understand.

It’s how and why the VA Help Desk – VA Training Academy® was created!

What do you get as a VA Help Desk – VA Training Academy® Member?

Training Webinars

Each month, a new training webinar will be uploaded into the Membership site; when these are guest webinars they will also be run live and Members will be able to ask questions of the presenter.

In these classes, you will learn game-changing skills, tip and tricks from experts in all areas of the business that you can apply to your own business but also that of your clients.

These training webinars are aimed at stretching your knowledge, skillset and developing your business. So they will cover things like: goal setting, marketing, from social media to blogging and SEO; client management, services, product launches and PR to networking, to name just a few.

Actionable Practical Workbooks

Each of the Training Webinars come with work books and checklists, all with actionable, practical activities, giving you step-by-step ideas with examples to put into practice immediately in your VA business.  These are all focused on business growth.

Resources and Bonus Section

In the Resources and Bonus section, I will share some helpful lists, guides, videos, audios covering mindset, productivity, business templates, social media and marketing tips as well as anything else I think will help.

Keep checking back, you never know what you might find here!

Support Group

You will love the members only support group – I’ve designed it as a place where you can brainstorm, ask for support and feedback, share ideas, celebrate your successes AND do business.

This is the place where we will run occasional challenges and do activities that stretch our businesses.

In the Members only group you can work directly with me, as well as network with other VAs trying to grow their business. Have questions? We’ll answer them.

In addition you also get:

  • Access to me every day in our private Facebook community so you can ask questions and get support
  • Weekly accountability check-ins with me via the group to ensure that you achieve your goals
  • An awesome community of Virtual Assistants who all want to build and grow their business
  • Instant access to online training materials that cover different aspects of running your VA business in the form of webinar videos, PDF documents and templates.
  • Monthly group live training calls and get the summary notes for each call.
  • Discounts on my workshops, packages, programs and stand alone courses (from me and my partners)
  • Online group coaching call (Live Q&A Call) to eliminate any sticking points in your business

Running your own VA business can be hard work

Running your own VA business can be hard work, there is so much to do supporting clients to earn an income. It can feel like we are permanently juggling or walking a very fine tightrope and one small knock, well it doesn’t really bear thinking about – does it?

I often describe a Virtual Assistant as someone who is used to be in service we are so used to someone asking us to fix something and us doing it that to suddenly have to learn and implement the running of our business takes time, effort and energy.

You may be feeling overwhelmed or as if you don’t know which direction to turn to next.

The original idea behind becoming a VA was so that you had a work / life balance and you don’t feel as if you do. You are supposed to be able to manage running a business and having a life. If you have other responsibilities, like a day job or family or both it can feel harder again.

I totally get how you are feeling I felt like this too and so do most other business owners, not just VAs. So please, be reassured you are not alone.

Let’s be honest here, the VA industry is virtual and there is no-one sat opposite you or in the next office to ask questions of, bounce ideas around, or even share your experiences. So whether you are a new VA or an experienced VA who wants to take their VA business to the next level, working with a mentor and a peer group can help you get to the next level in your business.

As part of the VA Mastery Course, I offered a group private support group and the VAs who were part of that described it as a great caring, supporting and sharing knowledge place. I was asked to replicate that group environment, while helping them with continuous professional development and so the VA Help Desk – VA Training Academy® was created.

The VA Help Desk – VA Training Academy® – a monthly membership site is an affordable way of working with me on a regular basis, but it is aimed at established Virtual Assistants. 

(This is not a cheap way of getting start up Virtual Assistant training.)

Our members can support one another, gain insight into other business models, share resources, build a community and get advice in real time from people who not only understand but who have been there too.

Need a shoulder to cry on about struggling to find a client or losing that all important contract you will have them. Would you like a few cheerleaders as you prepare to step outside your comfort zone for a new service offering, FB ad or networking event you will have them. Have a success that you need others to congratulate you on but no-one in your non-VA world really understands you will have them. A group coaching program offers all that, and best of all, with a community of like-minded members, the help and support is actually, well, helpful.

Here’s another win for ’The VA Help Desk – Monthly Membership Site’ – it is an affordable way of working with me on a regular basis.  It is £400 per annum or £40 per month so effectively £1.10 per day. 

Are you ready to invest in your VA business? I know I am, so let's do this together.

You can pay annually or monthly – whichever suits you better.  There is a discount equivalent to 2 months membership if you pay in full.
