Why now a great time to learn how to become a virtual assistant
More people than ever are working from home. This means that people don’t have access to traditional administrative services in the way they used to.

How to become a virtual assistant
I am normally a huge advocate of freebies or bargain deals but when it comes to pretty much anything. However, when it comes to training for a whole new career, I truly believe that you get what you pay for. I have scoured the internet for the best virtual assistant training course and I have found one which is incredibly comprehensive and has been compiled by someone who really knows what she’s talking about.
Here’s a brief run down of the course, as written by the creator:
Are you new to the VA world, or toying with the idea of becoming a VA?
This eight-part course is designed to take you from the very beginning of your journey to badass confidence in all aspects of your VA business.
Not only do you receive lifetime access to the full course, you’ll also receive eight weeks of email access to me, so that you can ask all the questions you like throughout the duration of the course.
The course is run by Jemma – I first encountered Jemma when I read this article about her. I was blown away by her accomplishments at such an young age. I don’t think there is a person better qualified than Jemma to create a course on how to become a virtual assistant.
I love how the course covers everything from getting started, legal/regulatory responsibilities, finding clients, setting prices – it really is a one stop shop for everything you need to know. I have invested in quite a few online blogging courses over the years and I would have saved a lot of money if I’d been able to find one course that covered everything. This course does that. Don’t wait until the market is flooded by other people looking to get into the virtual assistant realm, click here to sign up for the Becoming a Badass VA course.
At £497 it isn’t cheap but I can’t think of another profession you could enter at such a low price. Plus, apart from having a laptop the ongoing costs of working as a VA are so low as you are working from home. One you are up and running with your new business the cost of the course will be covered by your new earnings quickly.
