The VA Coach

Online VA 6-Week Certification Program

Hi Lovely, thank you for visiting my website …

My Name is Melissa

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!

What you will achieve with this course ...

A-Z Steps

Everything you need to start and succeed as a Virtual Assistant are included in this course. Everything from branding, right the way through to finding clients.


While you are completing the program, you have the option to be added to my communication platform where you can ask me any questions you may have.

Market Knowledge

I have been in the VA market in the South African and International VA market space for a decade, which is the knowledge that I share with my clients.

What the course is about

This program is specifically for ladies who do not have the time to do my 1:1 Coaching with me, due to work or a heavy personal schedule. This program is broken down into 12 modules and each module contains a video and a worksheet pertaining to that particular module. This program can be done at your own pace and in your own time. You have full access to the content at any time.

Having been an International Virtual Assistant for 6 years and an online business owner for 8 years, I know the online and Virtual Assistant market exceptionally well. Without having the support, tools, money or resources when I first started out, I know exactly how it feels to want to start a business, but have ZERO clue how to go about doing it. The only difference is, I had to make mistakes in order to learn what to do and what not to do to be successful in a business, which cost me a lot of time and lost money. That is why I am here to help you on your journey right from the start.

Have Questions?

Totally natural girl!

I am here for you! Don’t feel afraid to email me any questions you may have. No question is silly or too small. Whatever questions you have just click the button below to drop me an email and I will be in touch with you soonest.

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.
