“The positivity of the course along with the support (nearly 24/7, honestly) was invaluable! I’ve been in other courses and online groups where the leader shared posts and questions that no one interacted with. However, the energy and positivity that Courtney brings as your driven and inspired VA Code leader make every post feel more supportive than the last! If you’re on the fence, but feel a tug to explore becoming a VA, this course will benefit you regardless of a final business outcome. This course is about digging deep and getting clarity about what you want to manifest in your life.”

“I am so happy and grateful that I was able to participate in the VA Code. My life before was stagnant. Once I made the decision to become a virtual assistant and invest in this program I began to move forward and I am never looking back! Now I have a business and my first official client!”

Frequently Asked Questions:

what kind of programs or software are necessary or helpful to have when taking the course?

You actually don’t have to have anything special for the course. All the programs I teach are free to use and can be used on phone and desktop. As long as you have a decent computer you’re golden.

If I am on the fence and not sure what the heck I want to do next (maybe not be a VA), do you think it would still be valuable?

There is so much value in this course whether or not you become a VA. Several graduates have gone on to grow their virtual business, but it has nothing to do with VA. Photographers, creatives, coaches and chefs. A couple grads have gone on to quit a 9-5 they hate and instead of becoming a VA, they have started working somewhere that LIGHTS THEM UP. VA Code is a holistic approach to living and working while feeling good and having FUN. And the inner work we do is supportive to EVERYONE. We practice yoga, tapping and meditation, which can bring up even more interesting questions than just memorization. It’s an experience!

Will I actually get clients?
YES! WE NEED YOU. The growth of the gig economy is a global trend and this trend does not show signs of slowing. For example, people are increasingly making a living through several sources and using their skills with different employers. Intuit and Emergent Research predicted that “the number of people working on-demand [gig] jobs will grow from 3.9 million Americans in 2016 to 9.2 million by 2021.” Read more of the research here or just take my word for it…the jobs are everywhere and I would love to help match you with the perfect client for you!
What happens after I enroll?

As soon as you enroll, you will receive a welcome email that contains your next steps and important program information, as well as access to the private community. You’ll also create your own login and be able to access some of the bonuses mentioned above!

What is a virtual assistant?
A Virtual Assistant (or VA) is someone who offers services as a contractor to other businesses virtually in exchange for an agreed upon fee.There are so many services that VAs offer and each VA is unique.
What services can you offer as a VA?
Some virtual assistants operate like personal assistants – handling scheduling, organizing files, checking in on clients through email and providing social media support. Others are more technical providing web development and server level support. There are customer support VAs, graphic design VAs, social media VAs, copywriting VAs…and the list goes on!
