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. What is so great about our course The SavvySystem, is that it literally takes the guessing out of all the steps. We walk you through step by step about to get starting and make money!

About the SavvyVault
There are so many skills to learn as a new VA, and sometimes the new tech entering into the scene daily can seem overwhelming.
On top of that, there are VAs that know specific industry skills. What if I want to be a Virtual Assistant for Social Media Management or a Subscription Box company? Does that look different than being a VA for a Blogger?
That's what we're going to cover in SavvyVault.
It's a collection of trainings made by experienced VAs to teach you the industry and tech skills you need to succeed.
You get access to all the SavvyVault trainings (50+) as well as access to our amazing SavvyVault community and monthly events.
We release at least 1 new course every month!
While we don't offer 1:1 support, we do have a Facebook group where we are active every day as well as an amazingly supportive community who love to dive in and support other VA's!
Tech-It-Outs are a special feature for all SavvyVault members who need some live, hands-on tech support. While not all problems can be "fixed" in a Tech-It-Out, you will always walk away with a bit of clarity around what steps you need to take next. We meet via Zoom which allows us to share screens as we walk through your tech/system troubles.
Yes! We go live inside of the community multiple times a month with industry & tech experts as well as a monthly Open Office Hours where we help you troubleshoot your tech/system challenges on the spot!
We perform audits on our courses regularly to make sure they are still up to date with the current setup of the platforms.
