Are you looking for a more rewarding role?

Perhaps you're fed up with the daily commute and realise there’s more to life than working every waking hour?

If you’re organised, have the ability to prioritise and the right attitude, you’ve already got the most important qualities you’ll need to start your own Virtual Assistant (or Virtual PA) business.

So, would you like to build something for yourself which allows you to work from home and choose working hours to fit around your family or other commitments?

If this is you, My VA Business could help you on your journey as we show you how to use your existing skills to build your own successful Virtual Assistant business, working from home, with our complete step by step programme.

There's absolutely no self-employment experience required and you can create a business that’s tailored specifically to your own lifestyle and needs. Read on for examples of the services you might choose to offer, how much you can earn and how to access our webinar to find out more.

You’re probably wondering who we are and why we’re experts in our field?

We are My VA Business, an experienced VA training company, approved by the Society of Virtual Assistants.

At the helm is owner Sarah Rugg.

Sarah has run her own successful Virtual Assistant business Vi-VA since 2005, making the move from the corporate banking world after having her two children.

Sarah admits to making every mistake in the book and is now passionate about fast tracking people to starting their own successful VA business, without making the costly mistakes that she did.

Having mentored hundreds of people, Sarah knows exactly what works and, unlike many other VA trainers, running her own VA business means she’s still got her finger on the pulse when it comes to the latest trends in the VA world.

We're here to help people with the right skills to build successful Virtual Assistant businesses of their own. This is not a franchise - there are no ongoing fees and it's 100% your own business so you're free to run it your way.

We're straight forward, transparent and we offer ongoing support if you need it, as well as a community of other VAs to connect with.

What kind of work do Virtual Assistants do?

VAs can offer a varied range of services, and as your own boss, you can choose exactly the type of work you’ll do - you’re under no obligation to offer anything you don’t enjoy doing!

Some examples of VA services you might offer include:

  • General Admin
  • Diary Management
  • Travel Booking
  • Inbox Management
  • Project Management / Support
  • Customer Service
  • Research

And if you have specific experience, you might also choose to offer a more specialised service (and in some cases gain a higher rate), such as:

  • Marketing
  • Tech / IT
  • Bookkeeping
  • Transcription
  • Medical / Legal
  • Translation

What can starting your own VA business do for you?

  • More quality time with your family
  • Complete freedom over the hours you work
  • Financial freedom - VAs charge on average £27/hour
  • No wasted time commuting (work from home)

Why should you create your business with our VA programme?

We've helped hundreds of people change course and set up successful VA businesses, using their existing skills to build their own brand.

We feel passionately that you should have choice and freedom when running your VA business so that you can really make it your own.You choose your hours, you pick the work you do and importantly, you decide which clients you want to work with.

And there are so many benefits of running a VA business that's 100% yours - unlike a franchise model, we don’t charge heftyup frontfees or expect you to share a percentage of your ongoing income.

Our programme is low cost at just a few hundred pounds and packed full of value. If you consider that the average hourly rate for a VA in the UK is £27 and an average client might use you for 20 hours a month, you should get your initial investment back within just one month of working with your first client.

You're probably wondering how you'll get clients

Don't worry, we've got this covered - we’ve been doing it since 2005 so we know what works and what doesn't.

Getting clients is the main focus of our programme - we show you proven ways to get the right type of clients who'll appreciate you, and who you'll love working with.

So, what next if you think you have the makings of a great VA?

Our step by step FAB-VA programme provides all the guidance and video support you need to build a Successful VA business from scratch. All the guess work has been removed to help you save both time and money. Take a look at our website to see how others have found it.

The programme can fit around your current circumstances and you can continue to work until you've started onboarding your own clients. Some people even choose to permanently run their VA business alongside a part time job.
