Live your life on your own terms ...

Let me show you EXACTLY how to start and scale your very own successful Virtual Assistant business in 2021, the way I did!


Hi Lovely, thank you for visiting my website …

My name is Melissa and I am a top Virtual Assistant Coach to South African and Global ladies who are desperately wanting to create a life on their own terms. I coach and mentor these queens and show them EXACTLY how to ditch their 9-5’s, how to set their Virtual businesses up from beginning to launch, earn 5-6 FIGURE INCOMES and become CEO’s of their own Virtual empires, in under 90 DAYS OR LESS… the way I did!

Does this resonate with you?

  • Are you tired of being chained to a desk?
  • Wish you could be more?
  • Are you tired of asking permission to take time off work?
  • Wish you could earn more?
  • Are you tired of missing out on your kids growing up?
  • Wish you could build your own empire?
  • Are you tired of sitting in hours and hours of traffic?
  • Wish you could work flexible hours?
  • Are you tired of running errands after hours?
  • Wish you could travel?
  • Are you tired of compromising your health and fitness due to lack of time?
  • Wish you could schedule your days just the way you wanted to spend it, instead of having to go to work?

Love From My Clients

“Melissa has opened up a whole world of opportunity for me. I now have the tools to be able to successfully run my own VA business. Her services are extremely reasonable and she is committed to helping you succeed. I believe she cares about her clients and wants them to do well. If you are looking to start your Virtual Assistant business, this is the lady for you!”

“I finished my coaching with you in January 2020.  What a journey it has been for me.   It hasn’t been easy to get my VA business going.  You NEVER gave up on me. When I felt like giving up you motivated me to keep going.  I felt that the breakthrough was NEVER going to come.  But it’s just like you said – you just have to reach the peak and then the business will come streaming in.

It is now 3 months later and I am delighted to tell you that May 2020 was that breakthrough for me!!  I signed up 3 clients in 3 weeks and there is more business in the pipeline.

I want to tell the rest of your ladies not to give up, even when it seems they are getting nowhere.  KEEP GOING!

You are an excellent coach and I am proud to call you my friend.

“Towards the end of last year I was in a position where I needed to set up my business urgently. This included website design and studying of all the modules literally within 6 weeks (a 3 month course)!

Melissa was amazing! She obviously made it clear to me that we could only reach my deadline if I put in the work and dedication.

Within 5 weeks through lots of blood, sweat and tears my VA business was launched. This was the middle of October which was not the ideal time of the year to find clients as most people are already in holiday mode by then.

I currently have 5 retainer clients by following Melissa’s workbooks step by step! Her support, motivation & knowledge has gotten me to where I am now (and still growing).

Yes, it hasn’t been easy, but it’s not meant to be. No great achievements come without hard work and dedication.

My business is growing rapidly and I am so grateful that I took the first step! Melissa is amazing at what she does. Thank you darling!”

KZN (South Africa)

I urgently needed change in my life, I prayed and God sent you on my path at the very perfect time and I’m so grateful!

Being a perfectionist with very high standards, I never thought I would meet someone that would be able to help me and exceed my expectations the way you did!

The best of all is, we even became friends because you have such a loving and caring personality! Thank you so much for supporting me and encouraging me, you are such a valuable asset that’s been added to my life!”

“Melissa Nicolson is a powerhouse! From my initial discovery call right to the end of my coaching, she’s proven herself to be consistent and dynamic. She is a catalyst for women empowerment and is determined to watch you succeed. She is extremely knowledgeable and is eager to share her wisdom to ensure you are a success. What sets her apart, is her tenacious work ethic and complete willingness to share her experiences (failed and successful) in order to pave the way for your success. I cannot thank her enough for her determination and always accommodating my busy corporate schedule. She is tech-savvy and knows how to navigate through the transition from corporate to Boss Lady independence.  Thank you Melissa, Thank you!”

“I cannot express how much this e-course has broadened my horizons. I can literally do what I love doing and earn twice as much. Being a VA doesn’t limit what you can do, it also allows you the opportunities to learn things you never thought you’d do, and actually love it…"

Gauteng (South Africa)

“If I had to do The VA Coach® 12-week program again, I would not change a thing!  From the outset, Melissa was friendly and professional.  She was always on-time with our Skype meetings and met every deadline she set out.  She was encouraging and supportive through the processes, shared her knowledge and gave valuable advice.  Her workbooks are very informative and set out methodically.  Melissa was an integral part of launching my business – in fact, I will consult her on some aspect and she has always been more than willing to assist me.

She also built my business website which I absolutely love

Melissa knows her stuff!”

Gauteng (South Africa)

"Melissa contacted me at a time in my life where I really needed the change she was about to help me achieve. I had no idea what the term “VA or Virtual Assistant” meant and she has done everything in her power to help me know what I should know to be able to be a success. I received an income this month because of Melissa’s enduring and teaching spirit and she has even touched my heart on a personal level. She really goes out of her way to help and gives a lot more than you bargained, or even paid for. I recommend her fully.


Western Cape (South Africa)

“I have worked with Melissa over the last few months, she is my VA coach and took me through the process of setting up my own small VA business which included the set up of my website. My experience with Melissa from day 1 has only been professional, she was always on time for calls / meetings and never missed one. Melissa is extremely dedicated and passionate about the service she provides you, she always went the extra mile with everything and never hesitated to assist where she could. Melissa set up my website and I could never be happier, her IT skills and knowledge are amazing, I trust Melissa 100% and would never asked anyone else to help with this except her.

I would highly recommend Melissa with any of her skills, you will not be disappointed.”

Eastern Cape (South Africa)

“When I came across Melissa’s training it was a no brainer for me to sign up straight away. If you are serious about starting a virtual assistant business there really is no one better than Melissa to guide you and I truly believe that she is an absolute pro at teaching the fundamentals of starting your own VA business as she breaks each step into manageable tasks.  

Not only is Mel an amazing coach, I can happily say I have gained a wonderful friend. If you are struggling to believe that you could start your own business or suffer from a lack of self confidence, Mel’s positive can-do attitude and kindness will inspire you to believe that you can! I can’t recommend her enough!”
