Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re not 100% satisfied with the program before your first 30 days are over, you can discontinue your payments for any reason. That means you can enroll today, and you don’t even have to decide if you’re in for good!

Take the full 30 days to explore the materials and experience the VA Academy and then...make a life-changing decision using the information you have, rather than the information you don’t.

There is so much information online that it is time-consuming and overwhelming to sort through all of it! The VA Academy guides you step-by-step so you aren't wasting any time. Our community gives you 24/7 encouraging support, so you aren't alone on an island figuring it out alone. And, best of all, we promote your services so you will get clients FASTER than if you try to do it alone. 

Plan on working on your VA business for about 5-10 hours per week. After you work through the lessons, you'll shift your learning time into working time as you get clients. As you work through the program, you'll figure out how to make this work with your schedule and your family, which is great preparation for working with your clients!

YES! The VA Academy will help you tighten up your systems so you can make more money in less time. You'll learn how to sell recurring packages at a flat rate and how to outsource work so you can add more clients without working more hours. You'll also learn more in-demand skills that business owners will happily pay for! You'll get recommended to clients and get a listing on the VA Directory!

VAs can charge between $25-$100 per hour, depending on your skills and abilities. The more specialized you are, the more you can charge.

Homeschooling already gives you so much freedom! You aren't bound by the school or bus schedule. You can be available for your kids when YOU choose. Being a virtual assistant means YOU choose when you work and which tasks you do for your clients. YOU are in control of your daily and weekly schedule! 

In the Academy, you'll learn HOW to get clients on your own, using networking, your website, and social media. You will also be matched to clients after you finish your VA Certification!

Usually service-based businesses need to hire a VA. They are busy doing the work of the business: they are seeing patients, clients, teaching, coaching, etc. They don't have time for bookkeeping, admin, social media, creating graphics, or editing their website. They need an assistant for data entry, spreadsheet management, emailing clients, or getting tasks done. That's why they will hire YOU!

No, this is not an MLM or a networking marketing program. We do not take a percentage or cut of any of your profits. You are creating your own business as an independent contractor.

You will need internet, a laptop, a smartphone, and a place to work. This can be in your bedroom, dining room, or in a spare bedroom. Even on your couch if you're comfortable! Most software or apps are free to start. You may want headphones or a nice chair eventually. You may already have everything you need to begin!

As with any business, there are tools you can invest in to make your life easier. But nothing is required to begin. You can build your website for free and website hosting is very inexpensive (around $5/month). As you grow, you can choose to invest in the Pro version of software, but nothing is required at first!

You will need to spend about $75 in start-up costs to complete the personality assessments, so we can match you with the best clients!

Yes! Absolutely. We have members in Canada and Mexico. We will work with you to ensure that you are set up legally and correctly for where you live. 

No, we do not. You are an independent business. We make money from the tuition from the Academy. We are not an agency and we are not in the middle between you and your clients.

Yes. You can work as quickly as you want to because you get all the trainings as soon as you enroll. You will not be held back or feel behind. Everyone works at their own pace!

After you are certified, you'll get access to the Agency Program materials to learn how to scale and grow even more.

Growing a business takes time. You can acquire a few clients very quickly, to make $1000 - 3000 per month. But getting to $5000 or more takes time. Time to learn the skills, grow your packages, and find clients. This may or may not be the best solution if you are in a desperate situation.

Yes! All of our trainings are on video and you can watch when it works for you! All of our live sessions are recorded and you can watch on your own time! Many members are working another job while they are starting their business.

YES! The best tools will help you build your business in the best way! You can use a desktop computer, but a laptop will give you the flexibility and freedom to work from anywhere! Having a Smartphone is essential, too! If you don't have a laptop, either a Mac or PC will work. You don't have to break the bank- get a laptop for about $400-500. Almost all of your work will be online so make sure you have good internet!

What sets the VA Academy apart is the personalized coaching. Most programs are a "membership," like Netflix, where you work through an overwhelming vault of information on your own. We use a Roadmap, so you know exactly what to do next. You also get private coaching sessions (which most programs do not offer to VAs) which tailors the whole experience to YOUR strengths, personality, and background. You will feel cared for and supported in a very encouraging environment!

Yes! Being a VA isn't about fitting yourself into a box. It's about building a box around your life! You can work when the baby sleeps, when Grandma has the toddler, in the middle of the night, on weekends, or whenever you have a little bit of extra time. If you know you need to do SOMETHING alongside being a mom, you probably love a challenge and love learning. This program and being a VA is a great option. You can keep learning and growing as your kids get older. And you can research while they play, nurse, or nap.

You don't have to use social media, but MUCH of our training utilizes the tools of Facebook and Instagram for both you and your clients. You can modify the plan for yourself, but be aware that we do believe that there are many benefits to using social media for marketing and connection!

YOU get to decide! There is complete freedom and flexibility when you own a VA business. You set the hours, you set the rates, you choose your clients, and you choose your services. 

In the VA Academy, you'll get help determining which services you should offer and how to set your rates so you're not just guessing.

You can work in the morning, at night, or even on the weekends! It's completely up to you.

You do have to be disciplined to own a business like this! You have to be self-motivated and organized to make it happen.

Can teens and young adults sign up for the VA Academy?

Yes! Motivated, mature, and responsible teens, ideally ages 16-19, are welcome to join our program! We have had many homeschool graduates join our program and succeed! NOTE: They must want to do this, be self-motivated, and enjoy being around adults!
