That’s exactly what Hayley, VA Business School’s founder did when she become a Virtual Assistant 10 years ago. As an Executive PA for a Chartered Institute, Hayley was doing very well climbing the PA corporate ladder in London. When her job role suddenly changed overnight, she found herself seeking an out from the rat race.
Following 10 years of setting up multiple VA businesses, Hayley decided to put all her knowledge, experience and skills into writing a career course for aspiring VAs. VA Business School’s Virtual Assistant Certification course is an accumulation of all that Hayley did to become a fully booked VA within weeks.
“I loved being a PA but I was becoming increasingly tired of difficult work relationships, the lack of work/life balance and the 9-5. When I became a VA and left employment, I suddenly found myself earning a higher hourly rate, I could work at 50% capacity and work when I wanted too,” Hayley says.
It is no wonder that more and more Virtual Assistants are starting up with the demand for online business sky rocketing with recent events.
“Covid has been an awful situation for so many industries. If a plus can be found in any of it, it is that the demand for VAs is increasing. With online business traffic booming, the need for virtual assistance to support this has also.”
VA Business School’s VA career course is totally online, with 24/7 access and results in a certificate so graduates can say that they are a Certified Virtual Assistant. In addition to the main course content, Hayley has also included free bonuses such as her own templates that she used to become a fully booked VA.
