Get started as a Virtual Assistant

I'll share with you what I've learned in six years of being in business, and give you the guidance, strategies, mindset work and support you need.
 

Learn the strategies, foundations and mindset that took me from supplementing my VA income with temp work to replacing – then exceeding – my previous professional salary. (While attracting your ideal clients, getting to do work you love, and building a business around your life and needs).

Make 2021 the year you discover the freedom of being self employed

Do you love the idea of being your own boss? Choosing what to work on, who to work with, and where and how to work?

Would you love to:

 

  • Work from the comfort of your home
  • Work around your needs (your mental and physical health, energy levels, physical environment, how much interaction you enjoy)
  • Use your skills (IT, systems, organisation, creativity, attention to detail, hyperfocus etc.)
  • Work in alignment with who you are 
  • Help others build their businesses and gain their freedom – while you gain yours

A little bit about me

Hi! I’m Amy Richards. I’m a tech VA and Online Business Manager.

I started my virtual assistant business in March 2015, after burnout made me unable to continue working as a high school teacher.

I’d been thinking about being self employed for years. But I’d always thought that I wasn’t the right sort of person, and didn’t have the right skills or knowledge to run a business or be my own boss. I’d always had a J.O.B. and the thought of going off on my own was pretty terrifying.

When I left my 12-year teaching career with enough money in the bank to last me for about four months, I’d never heard the term ‘virtual assistant’ (I thought for a while I’d invented the idea!) and was utterly clueless about running a business.

I’ve learned a hell of a lot in the past few years – and now I’d like to pass it on.
