Why Help Is Essential When Starting Out

This Can Be Scary

Trying to set up this business on your own is SUPER scary, trust me, this was me too. When you don’t have a clue what to do, in which order or what on earth the VA market is about, this can scare you senseless, but not to fear … I am near!

This Can Be Overwhelming

When you are trying to set your Virtual Assistant business up as quick as possible, but are stuck on Google and reading blogs, trying to piece this together, the overwhelm WILL take you over. There is no need to search any more girl!

This Can Be A Mess

If you are trying to set up your Virtual Assistant business, have no idea who the target market is, what the market pricing is, or how to even find clients, a lack of a proper set-up could be fatal and that’s why I am here to guide and support you.

I cannot thank Melissa enough for her assistance, advice, wealth of knowledge and lastly, an absolutely amazing VA course and website!

I signed up for a VA course with one of these online platforms, but the content was very Americanised and one course only covered one item, which meant you needed to enrol for other courses as well.

That being said, Melissa’s VA course is so detailed and professional. She covers so much and is always available to answer any (and lots) of questions. She always provides constructive and open-minded feedback. She works WITH you and helps you to reach your full potential and more.

I always wanted to do a VA course with someone who is a) South African and b) is/was an actual VA. She has first hand experience of exactly what a VA business entails, what you should and should not do, what will work, what to be aware of etc. Her course not only incorporates her wealth of knowledge, but also her lessons learned, her previous mistakes and how she improved on that and continued to be successful. Melissa is a realist and she provides very useful insight.

An added bonus is that she also has a VA Website package which assisted me with my full website design, text and set-up. I only had to tell her once, exactly what I was looking for in terms of style, design, colours, etc., and she delivered! While she was designing my website, I was in the middle of moving to our new home and also finishing up at my then corporate job. I had very little time to liaise with her, and when I eventually could, we were days before I had to go live. She did everything perfectly! The feedback that I get from my contacts, family and friends, is that my website is amazing!

Melissa is professional, in touch, she is honest, reliable and she delivers. I always knew that I was in good hands but she has most definitely exceeded all of my expectations.

I am grateful to have crossed paths with Melissa as she has provided me with all the tools, knowledge and advice to ensure that I start my VA business in the most professional, most impressive and “with a bang” way.

Thank you, Melissa! Everything you have done for me is greatly appreciated.

What is your contingency plan?

Not a back-up plan, but. a future plan

You have to have one sis!

We are living in uncertain times. We cannot just rely on corporate jobs (in case something happens and you get retrenched), perhaps you have already lost your job and can’t find another one. Having a Virtual Assistant business helps sets you up for the future, and helps guarantee that you will secure your finances and future.
