Ready to Get Your VA Business Off The Ground?
Let's get this show on the road my friend.
Take the fast track to develop the essential skills & foundational pieces that
you need to become a profitable virtual assistant.
SELF-STUDY OR 1:1 SUPPORT - YOUR CHOICE!
Are You Stuck Setting up Your VA Business? Working for Peanuts or Struggling to Get Clients?...
I've totally been there, too.
When I started my business, I dreamed of a life filled with freedom, flexibility, and fun. Of supporting my family, being my own boss, and doing meaningful work that I love. I wanted nothing more than to be a successful Virtual Assistant and to have the easy, breezy, designer handbag lifestyle that goes along with being a highly sought-after Internet professional. That's why I started my business!
But that's not what happened. In fact, far from it...
Clients weren't banging down my door to work with me. In fact, it was crickets. No emails. No website hits. Nothing. Nada.
I didn't get it!
I had a great website, a catchy name, and mad skills! So, where were all those clients?
And then when I finally did get clients, the ones who weren't flakes or freebie-seekers, they wanted to haggle my prices or pay me peanuts.
Mine is your typical virtual assistant startup story...
I had the classic "Field of Dreams" attitude (if you build it, they will come)
Back in 2005, when I started my business, I admit I thought that as soon as I hung out my virtual shingle, I would be rolling in the dough. But it was a grind, man. I was undercharging, attracting non-ideal clients, and I had the classic Field of Dreams attitude about being a VA ("if you build it, they will come").
I wasn't making real money, doing work I didn't really want to do, for clients who didn't appreciate me. I was burning the candle at both ends - miserable but determined to be successful. I remember thinking, if only someone would tell me what to do so that I can make this VA thing work!
But the program I wanted just didn't exist.
So, I had to find success the hard way. I signed up for every single free workshop I could get my hands on. I read every marketing book, took every seminar, and made every mistake I possibly could. I made many MANY mistakes.
Is that where you are? Are you climbing that hill and wondering where are the clients? Where is the money? Why is this so dang hard?
If you are searching for clarity and a program that offers REAL results (not some outrageous claims made by someone who isn't even a VA!) then you have found the program you've been looking for.
I have created a program that will help you find your ideal clients, charge what you're worth, and not work yourself into the ground. This is the ONLY training program out there that incorporates information on how to start and market a VA business to your IDEAL clients using step-by-step instructions and how to EARN a higher income AND personal support.
Find your ideal clients.
Personal 1:1 support.
What's the Secret?
You may be thinking, "Why you and why now?"
I created this program because it's the program I wish I had when I was starting out. I sat there for months after I started my business wondering when these creative and fascinating people were going to hire me? Where were they hiding?
I know now that the problem wasn't ME. Want to know a secret? The problem was that I wasn't letting people know how I could help THEM. Once I figured that out, business boomed. I learned how to market in a way that I was attracting ideal clients - not the demanding ones or the ones who want you to do everything on the cheap so they can grow THEIR business on your hard work. (Yeah, that happens a lot.)
Since then, I moved on to become an online business manager and ultimately a marketing and automation specialist + Infusionsoft Certified Partner. Business has changed, and I have finally achieved financial success, but more important, I enjoy the total freedom, flexibility, and portability this lifestyle brings. If you are a fellow milspouse, you know how important that is! And that's what I want for you - to help you find whatever it is that you are looking to achieve with your business.
Whether you want to...
If I Could Just Get This VA Thing Off the Ground Everything Will Change...
I know you. You are determined to make this work. You want to be home with your children. You want your husband or wife to be proud of you. You want to have that flexibility to attend your kid's plays, band competitions, soccer games, or
wine coffee with the ladies.
You just need a little help and a guide to show you the way. You may have bought programs or training or ebooks in the past that were 'meh' at best.
This is different.
Not only is this program made FOR Virtual Assistants BY an someone who actually had a success virtual assistance practice, but you will you be getting rock-solid top-of-the-line information to help you thrive and 1:1 support.
Ready to Kickstart Your VA Career in Six Weeks or Less? Then I Invite You To “VA Business Essentials”
Here are the Virtual Assistant Business Essentials Training Program Modules
(YES! You get INSTANT ACCESS to everything when you sign up!)
- 1Setting the Foundation: There are many things to do, many decisions to make, and I want to make sure you cover your bases without breaking the bank. You'll learn why most VAs don't finish launching their business (trust me, this will not be you!), types of legal business structures and which one may be the best for you. Also, what you need to know about licenses, permits and other financial matters. But the jewel of Module 1, and what you will be using to map out your business, is my 45-day planner in which I break things down, what you need to do, week by week.
- 2Online Presence: Choosing your market will set the platform for many of the things you'll do in your business and it will guide your marketing plan. No one said it would be easy, but don't worry I'm here with you every step of the way.
Lessons include choosing your market, marketing strategies, attracting ideal clients, and I even show you do's and don'ts so that you don't make common marketing mistakes. Once you finish this module, you'll have a huge piece of your business structure and plan finished.
- 3Money, Rates & Pricing: Many VAs are surprised to learn that they have a choice when it comes to setting their rates. Many of them think it's a foregone conclusion that they will charge by the hour and have built their revenue models around this fact - but once I show them the different pricing models, they get really excited about the prospect of making more money while working the same amount of time!
My goal is to have every VA do what she wants to be doing and be paid handsomely for it. If you think that your role is relegated to making less than your clients, think again because I'm going to show you that it is possible to have a lucrative career as a VA.
- 4Working With Clients: This is my favorite part of the course because now that you have the foundation set up, general idea of your marketing plan, rates all ready to go and a plan of action on that, it's now time to actually get out there and get clients. As you can imagine it's the scariest part for many VAs at least I know it's that way for me when I was starting out.
Module 4 goes over all things Clients. How to attract them, where to find them, how to work with them. I go into great detail about how to build your Ideal Client Profile, where to find clients that are most ideal for you, how to do an effective client intake and consultation, and I even give advice on dealing with problem clients. Trouble with setting boundaries with your clients? This will never be a problem again after you finish this module.
"The information you provided in this training is truly gold... Any newbie and established VA can put your recommendations to good use. Well done."
"Lisa is very warm and articulate and is an excellent communicator. Her course content was exactly as promised. She provided valuable information and then she explained exactly how to implement it using real-world examples. I landed my very first client this week and I know her coaching played a very significant role in making that happen. I couldn't have hoped for a better outcome and look forward to working with her again soon!"

"Before taking this program, I was not clear on the basic fundamentals I would need to start my business. Lisa walked me through the steps to get started and shared her personal insight on the day-to-day operations of running a VA business. I particularly appreciated her straightforward tips on interacting with clients, setting prices and developing packages."
TIFFANY M. PATTERSON
"I was happy to have found Lisa's program. It is chock full of helpful information and is very well organized into easy-to-follow sections. Like most online courses, you get out of it what you put into it. Every module has a minor homework assignment to complete, I highly recommend you complete the assignments. Some ideas that were discussed ranged from making your website more professional looking to dealing with difficult clients. No matter where on your business journey you are at-- all can learn something from this course. If you just need the basics this class offers that and is much better presented than those "getting started" classes that are offered around the internet. I appreciate that Lisa is willing to offer her expertise to help businesses succeed in the online marketplace. Highly recommend hiring Lisa as your online business teacher."

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I complete the program in less than 6 weeks?
Yes - the entire course is available to you once you enroll. Since the content is NOT dripped at specific intervals, you can go at your own pace.
Will this program work for me even if I don't call myself a "VA"?
Because the term "VA" is more about the industry and not so much a title, this program is geared towards service providers, freelancers, those just starting out, and those who want to add some structure to their 'virtual' business.
Should I know my target market or what I want to specialize in before I enroll?
When I started in 2005, my background was IT and software support, hardly something that I could leverage at the time. So I started with what I knew, which was general administrative things like PowerPoint presentations. Then I knew I needed to niche so I fell back on my commercial real estate experience combined with my expertise in marketing and decided on “real estate marketing assistant” then learned quickly I didn’t like doing this. So I switched to working with coaches because I really liked working with that group. So you see, you may change your mind along the way and that’s totally ok.
While having a target market or niche isn’t necessary to get started since you’ll have lifetime access AND chances are that you most probably will change your mind at some point, it’s something that you do want to have settled before you start looking for clients, investing a lot of money in a website, etc.
How does the e-coaching work?
As soon as you enroll in the program, you'll have access to submit private questions. I've invested heavily in AccessAlly and Infusionsoft so this integration is not only powerful, but easy and seamless. You can ask questions from within the modules, no need to use e-mail, and the only person who sees these questions is me. You get access to this benefit for 2 whole months. You can submit any questions you like, anytime you want, 24/7 and I will respond within a day or two during normal business hours. This is a super valuable benefit and is the only program out there with 1:1 support at this price.
