Testimonials

What students are saying about The Creative VA Academy

“Before joining The Creative VA Academy, I was struggling with knowing how to start my VA business. I also struggled with getting clients, creating systems, and knowing how to price my services. Since joining The Creative VA Academy, I now actually have a business! I feel so much more confident about my services, business structure and feel like it is an actual business that I can start to grow. The courses were very clear. I knew what each week would look like and what to expect for the following week as well. One of my ah-ha moments was not only knowing my pricing but also knowing my value! Since joining the course, I have set up my website, and had a client double her hours with me because she loved my work style!”

Kara CahillKara Cahill

“Before The Creative VA Academy, I was struggling with business structure and direction. I was kind of floating through, piecing the pieces together, but not really on a clear path. Since going through The Creative VA Academy, I now have a business I am proud to share with the world. One that is structured, professional, and designed in a way to match my skills and personality. I am attracting my ideal clients and enjoying the work I do. The course objectives were crystal clear and actionable. There were objectives to solidify lessons, keep you on track, and keep you engaged. This course is jam-packed full of information, content, action steps, and examples! I recently sent my largest proposal since starting my business, and it was accepted right away!”

Leslie MazzeiLeslie Mazzei

“The Creative VA Academy has definitely moved me forward in my VA business. I have learned so many ways to organize and be more efficient in the work I do and how I manage projects. I had a ton of Ah-ha moments, like my client avatar, contracts, the way I charge for my services, niches, passion/drive, and task load! The course work was super valuable and is going to set me up for success. Joining the group is great too, because it is a place where we can ask for advice, bounce ideas off of each other or leverage each other's skill sets to help our clients.”

Kim DeGryseKim DeGryse

“For the first time in my life, I feel like success is possible and that I can face my fears of starting my own business without being overwhelmed. I feel like this course granted me unlimited freedom and possibilities for my creativity and the road ahead. I have finally said, "Yes" to me and giving my dreams a REAL chance. MAJOR! I'm so grateful. Thank you so much for pouring your heart into this course. I feel like you gave us SO MUCH content (way more than I imagined when I purchased it) and really made sure we were set up for success. It's structured in a way that at the end of Module 8, if we do the tasks - everything is in place to start our business with full confidence. Also, I'm in so many Facebook groups, but this VA Academy one feels personal and I love that. Joining The Creative VA Academy has impacted my business tremendously! I feel like every question was answered, a clear path was established and for the first time in my life it all feels doable and exciting! ”

Leah RugeLeah Ruge

“The idea of becoming a VA was simply that - an idea. I didn't know where to even begin, how to open your own business, any of those important steps! But since joining The Creative VA Academy, I am currently growing a business that I know I will be able to be proud of! Creating my brand board has been by far my favorite so far! To see the idea and MY business plan coming alive - it literally made me come alive! I couldn't even do any work that same day that really required a lot of focus because I just felt on top of the world happy! I have confidence in building a business now! I am currently getting ready to plan out my 4-week launch strategy and none of this would have been possible without you and your education! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!”

Krystal CassidyKrystal Cassidy

“Before The Creative VA Academy, I was trying to figure out how to help creative businesses. There was nowhere that I could find that was specifically teaching that. Also, there was just so much information out there, I didn't know where to start! I am so happy that everything about starting a VA business was packed into one resource. This course got me started and got me confident about running it right. As a person who is HORRIBLE with sticking with personal tasks and goals, I was able to push forward and make my business legit and legal. Now I HAVE to commit!”
