Frequently Asked Questions
A Virtual Assistant (VA) can be any type of remote assistant who provides administrative, creative, or technical support services for online or brick-and-mortar business owners.
ABSOLUTELY!! What is so great about becoming a Virtual Assistant is that you can make it exactly what you want it to be. You can work part-time. You can work full time. It is all up to you! There are so many opportunities out there waiting to be found. Plus, with the shift the workforce is making to the online space, even more opportunities are opening up!
You do not. You can totally launch, grow, and scale your business without a course or a certification. BUT — we highly recommend our course The SavvySystem: VA Launch Academy because it literally takes the guesswork out. We walk you through starting your virtual assistance business step-by-step so you can start earning money from home and live your dream VA life!
Here at The Virtual Savvy, we believe that there is something for everyone. If you decide the SavvySystem isn't for you - that's ok! We do, however, believe that we have the most comprehensive VA course currently on the market.
