Employee to VA Transition Coaching

Considering opening a VA business?

A note from your coach…

Employee to VA Transition Coaching is for professionals who are ready to become self-employed by opening the doors of a VA business. They are new to the VA industry and to business ownership.

I coach, teach and train potential VAs on the nuances of the VA industry and how to build successful long-term relationships with clients.

These coaching programs are based on my experience and longevity in the industry. Virtual assistants and other virtual professionals are in high demand however much goes into the making of a professional and successful VA.

It is my desire that clients of Employee to VA Transition Coaching will exit the programs with an understanding of the VA industry, how to build a successful VA firm and a foundation upon which they will build enjoyable long-term VA client partnerships.
