Create a working life you love that fits around your family and works for YOU for a change by setting up and running your own Virtual Assistant business.

All my knowledge and experience (as well as my heart and soul) has gone into this DIY course which covers EVERY SINGLE THING you need to create and run a successful VA business and land quality, well-paying clients.

Stop thanklessly slogging your guts out working for someone else when you can do exactly the same tasks on your own terms for more money!

Exactly how to analyse your CV to work out your skill set, niche and services.

My guide on How to Get New Clients, example prospect emails and help to stay on track.


A private place to ask questions. I answer them all in a monthly video and then email you the link.


Every single document and template you'll ever need as well as a private Facebook group and the facility to ask me questions if you need to.


Are any of your other downloads and courses included when I buy this? 

Yes, you get all my smaller downloads and templates as well as my Guide on How to Get Clients. The first section is also the same as my 3-part series on how to work out your potential niche and services.  You don't get the Minute Taking course, the SEO guide, the CV writing guide, any of Luan's LinkedIn training or the WordPress course. 

Can I still be a VA if I don't have a PA or admin background?

Well my own background was actually hospitality and events so I'm living proof that the answer is yes! Although I had basic admin skills, the idea is that you provide virtual ASSISTANCE, which doesn't necessarily mean needing advanced secretarial skills. Most clients can do the admin themselves, they just don't have the time.

My personal trainees always came under two categories: those who had an admin/PA/EA background and those with a completely different working background such as media, marketing, HR, health, finance etc. The great thing about the second category is that you can provide admin as well as specialist business support to professionals in the industry in which you worked. You're valuable because you know their challenges, pitfalls, terminology and timeframes, as well as what needs doing, how, when and why.

Do I have any access to you?

Although you don't get any one-to-one consultations, I provide access to a monthly SurveyMonkey page where you can ask any questions you like. I then record myself answering them in depth and post the video privately on YouTube on the first of every month. The video link also goes on the course website (with all the past Q&A sessions) and I email it to you as well.

You also have access to a special trainee-only Facebook group. This group is more like a family where I set tasks, post weekly accountability goals, morning business boost articles and offer marketing advice. I'm very active in this group and I reply to every question I'm asked. 

Does the course expire and do I have to do it within a set period of time?

No you have lifetime access to the course so you can start when you like and dip in and out of it whenever you want. You can whizz through the course and get clients within a couple of months (many people do) but you can also take as long as you like. 

Do you offer a payment plan?

Yes, if you click any of the pink payment buttons, you'll see the options available to you. 

How do I access the course once I've bought it?

The course is hosted on a private courses website. Once you click to buy, you'll immediately receive an email with your login details so you can instantly access the site and start working through all the sections. Check your spam folder if you don't receive your login details within an hour. The login email will go to the email address you use to buy the course. 

Can I do this course if I don't live in the UK?

There are people from all over the world already on this course as the training is not dependant on you being in a specific location. The course is solely focused on how to get set up and find clients.

I'm interested, what do I do now?

Click one of the pink payment buttons and you'll be taken straght to my courses website. Choose the payment option you want, buy the course, login with the details automatically set to the email address you paid with and then start! 


"When I bought Jo’s DIY course I have to admit it was a “close my eyes and click” moment. I was pretty sure I wanted to be a VA but I wasn't convinced… until I signed up. Within half an hour of receiving my login details and welcome email I knew I'd made the right decision. The way Jo writes makes you feel like she's there in the room with you, talking you through every stage (and telling you off when you start to doubt!). She immediately instills confidence.

I had no idea what my niche was or what I wanted it to be and it took me about a week to get my head around it. The magic thing about the DIY course is that all the answers are in there, you just have to adapt them to your style and personality.

I followed Jo’s course to the T – I knew this was my time to shine and I wasn’t about to waste my money. Within days of completing the DIY course (I also bought the LinkedIn course) and publishing my LinkedIn profile I had my first client. To say I was shocked is an understatement. I already had a return on the money that I’d spent and it had only taken 6 weeks!

For some reason though, I felt like I wasn’t worthy of taking someone’s money to do something that came so easy to me and I had a bit of a wobble to Jo. She basically told me to pull myself together and get on with it, which is exactly what I did and I am now in a position where I actually don’t need any more clients for the time being. 

She will kill me for saying this BUT, I owe my new found confidence and my wonderful new business to Jo and her DIY VA course. I ABSOLUTELY wouldn’t have done this if it wasn’t for her. She’s a business woman, a mentor, a coach and a teacher and I am so glad I found her site!

If you’re in doubt, lacking in confidence or just going off track and need a supportive push in the right direction then take the course, you won’t be disappointed!"
