Love From My Clients

Melissa approached me a couple of months ago about becoming a Virtual Assistant. I have been a PA for seven years & had never heard of Virtual Assistants but after doing a bit of research, it sounded like a fabulous opportunity!  I’m a single Mom & had been exploring different options as to how I could create a balance between bringing in a steady income & being hands on for my children. I therefore leaped at the Coaching Course on how to be a Virtual Assistant that Melissa presented to me. One cannot put a price on the information that Melissa has imparted on. Not only is she helpful, kind, caring and committed, Melissa has covered every possible avenue for setting up your own home office. There is information that I would not have even thought of & it won’t cost a fortune to start with. If you are considering becoming  a Virtual Assistant & are committed to hard work & opening your own business , then I would most definitely recommend this course and working closely with Melissa.  You won’t regret it!”

Kate - Gauteng, South Africa

“I have always wanted to go into the world of virtual assistance, but never had a clue where to begin. I tried to use many articles & resources online to try & set my virtual business up, but the more research I did, the more confused I got. I came across Melissa’s coaching profile & was immediately taken with the idea that someone would be with me through the entire process. Melissa has helped me step-by-step to set up my entire VA business & I am so excited to go on this journey, it has literally changed my future in ways I cannot explain.”

She helped me map out my 5-10 year business plans & I am so glad I invested in her coaching, it is more than worth it!”
