What is VA Essentials?

VA Essentials is a ten week, online training program designed to teach women how to plan, create, and launch their very own businesses as Virtual Assistants.

Take back control of your career and live the life you love! Create a flexible schedule working with clients and projects you truly enjoy, all from the comfort of your own home.

This course teaches you how to:

  • Build a solid business foundation that will set you up for success as an entrepreneur.
  • Use common online software to keep up with project management, creation, invoicing, and more!
  • Be prepared to confidently work with clients the moment you graduate.

How does VA Essentials work?

There are five sessions of training, broken up into manageable pieces that are emailed to you over the ten week period. Each session has a written lesson, a training video, and workbook pages designed to help you take action.

You will also receive access to my private Facebook community where you will find support from me, daily prompts to get you thinking about your business, and interaction with other women who are also building their Virtual Assistant careers! The best part about this community? Once you're in - you're in for good! You'll always have access to my training materials, even after you finish the program.

You’ll never have to go this alone, I promise.

What people are saying!



"I've found this course very valuable! I'd heard of VA's before, but never really considered being one. This course has been helping me understand more of what Virtual Assistants are able to do and to start creating a plan for myself."

"This course absolutely met my expectations! I had no idea Virtual Assistants even existed until a friend told me about this course. The material is very encouraging and informative. Jamie-Lynn is easy to talk to and always responds to my inquiries."
