For years now, business has left the geographic confines of the brick and mortar world and has ventured into the realm of the Internet. That shift has created a serious need for organized people who are loyal, skilled, and trustworthy to serve small businesses as Administrative Virtual Assistants, commonly known as "VAs."
Virtual Assistants are people who manage many of the details of small businesses, much like office managers do, only they do it all virtually from a remote location, usually their home. They also work on their hours, not by clocking in anywhere.
Educating For Success, Inc.
Once I identified the need years ago, I didn't know where to look for someone to hire. So I decided to train one myself.
|"I've been organizing other people's lives most of my life. My mom went back to work full-time when I was 12. Being the oldest child, I felt it was my responsibility to keep my three siblings on track. I made sure they did their homework, had a snack after school, and came home from their friends' house on time. I even tried to keep my brothers from harassing my sister. "I was glad to help my mom by making sure our house ran smoothly while she was away at work.
Now, I keep my own home organized and enjoy helping organize my clients' businesses.
"Being a Virtual Assistant is like being the hub in the center of a wheel. I continually support all the spokes (projects) so the whole wheel rolls evenly down the road. "My clients have so many wonderful business ideas. They use my expertise to make sure they happen by giving me the 'big picture,' then I work out all the details.
"I stay in communication with all the people involved in my clients' projects to make sure they have the tools and information they need to meet our deadlines.
"There are always bumps in the road of business, but when you have a good system of doing things, the wheel rolls smoothly and efficiently. My job is to make sure everyone around me has a positive, enjoyable ride.
"The best part is that I get to do this all from home! When my kids need my help, it's no problem. I can attend to their needs and then get back to my work later.
"If you are a detail-oriented person who enjoys seeing a project through to the end, being a Virtual Assistant is perfect for you."
My personal virtual assistant is Jo Dee Soles of Texas. She took this course in 2013 and now she is teaching it!
Here's what she says:
"I never planned to be a VA, and I never realized I already was (for my husband's business), but it was thrust upon me.
"I was able to do it, because:
She doesn't do bookkeeping or marketing. Essentially she is a manager that helps my team finish tasks.
And the perfect thing about a business like this is that she can schedule her work around her other commitments to family, homeschooling, church and community!
Here's What an Administrative VA Doesn't Do
Now We Have a Waiting List!
Since I've been singing the praises of having a VA to so many of my Internet-based friends, many of them would like to find someone like her to serve in their businesses. In fact, we have a waiting list.
And I just happen to know a whole bunch of homeschool moms and teenagers who would make great VAs for business owners!! So once a year, we offer this virtual class to provide you with basic training to become an administrative VA.
The duties aren't hard, they just require a responsible person to make sure everything gets done on time.
Some people are starters; some people are finishers. It takes both to create a successful online business. VAs are typically finishers who love putting all the pieces together to manage and finalize projects.
The course provides basic training for administrative VAs so anyone who likes organizing tasks and people can have their own home business and serve as many clients as they can handle. We'll also help you learn how to handle creative unorganized entrepreneurs!
Access Forever - We're offering a course for your family to engage in so they can learn from it and have access to it forever.
Self-Paced Modules - You'll learn the practical aspects of business that you need to know to assist small businesses with their daily needs in modules you can view at your own pace.
Live Interactive Sessions - We will also have several live online sessions for questions and any additional discussion.
Facebook Group - As soon as you register, you'll be added to a Facebook Group where you can communicate with other students throughout the duration of the course as well as after the course.
Everything is Recorded - Each session will be recorded and all the members of your immediate family will have access to them forever.
Entrepreneurs have such a hard time letting go of details. But once they understand how having a VA will benefit their business, they will kick themselves for waiting so long to make the decision.
When they transition from loner to working with a small team, there are several changes they must make.
During this call, we'll help them understand how they can benefit from working with a Virtual Assistant. By knowing the information we will give them, you will have a better understanding of the challenges they face in delegating control of the details of their business.
This course includes:
Can you imagine spending month helping a VA like my assistant Jo Dee doing whatever she does every day? Imagine the real life lessons you will learn.
Once the class is over, we'll begin your first month when you are ready. Just let us know.
During this time you will not be paid for your service. But, you will gain valuable experience that will serve you well forever.
This really is an amazing bonus. In the past, we have placed our VA students with some of my Best Friends who run very successful Internet businesses, usually ALL BY THEMSELVES.
Many of them are part of the elite group of folks who are known as "the Internet Millionaires."
Imagine helping a very successful marketer in his or her business for even one DAY. Well, we will give you the opportunity to work with one of my Best Friends for an entire month!
Many of our students have been hired by these clients but we are not claiming that you will be.
During this month, you will not be paid. But what you will learn will be priceless. So consider this opportunity a gem in the world of business. You won't find it just anywhere.
Members of our online community communicate with each other every day to help solve each other's problems and provide helpful tips in our closed Facebook Group.
Members are also eligible for jobs that come from our joint venture partners.
Many Virtual Assistants don't want to go out and find clients. Even though they operate as independent contractors and not employees, many just want to work and get paid.
By becoming a member of our VAC Pool, VAs will get experience and will be able to work whenever they want to with limited commitment.
The VA Pool is managed by my assistant Jo Dee who tries to match VAs with suitable clients based on skills, personality and client need.
There is no guarantee that any student will be hired permanently for this VAC Pool but it is an opportunity available for students who pass the VAC Certification Course to apply for.

"I can honestly say that the VA class has opened up a whole new world for me. The computer skills you taught were very valuable, but even more than that, you taught me CONFIDENCE. I had accepted an identity about myself as someone who just was not 'computer literate,' and who did not have any skills to offer, outside of my family. I was so convinced of this, that when my apprenticeship began, I almost asked to be removed from the program before I even really got started, just because I thought I could never learn everything that was necessary! However, with your help, and the support of the other members of the class (who are always there to help answer questions), I stuck it out, and I am so glad I did! I now have the confidence to tell my client, "Absolutely! No problem!" and really mean it! And not even to mention that I am now making a contribution to my family's finances, as well. But the real value of the VA class goes way beyond money. Thank you, Denise!"
"I learned a lot in the VA Class. I found out that there are a lot of resources that help VAs. I signed up for one in August and in November my computer crashed completely -- no hope for resurrection. Because I had it, I was able to retrieve my information. It is a great blessing. Another thing that was great about the VA class was having the communication with other VA class members to help solve problems. Not having to find the solutions on my own was a huge help. You don't have to be alone in this process."
"I am SO thankful I found Rhea Perry's program for VAs! I am now working for a client out of Canada, and expect another client to be added in the very near future. Never would I have imagined I'd be doing the things I'm doing! I get so excited when I can not only put into practice the things I've already learned through the VA course, but add to my knowledge base all the new things I continue to learn. I want to thank both Rhea and Denise for all their knowledge, help, tips, thoughts and instruction. Thanks for this great opportunity in my life!"
"In November of 2018, I took the Virtual Assistant course put together and taught by JoDee Soles. It’s been almost a year and in that time, I’ve learned so much about this business. JoDee was so patient with me while I was still trying to apply everything I had learned and believed in me enough to teach me to do more and more things. This is a great course no doubt, but without this very special teacher, it would just be one of many."
"Jo Dee's Virtual Assistant Course is a great find. It's very doable in short bursts of time, as most of the videos are less than 20 minutes long. There is some homework. Generally, Jo Dee teaches about a subject and then gives you an assignment to try it out for yourself. The course focuses on many of the activities and programs that an Admin. VA would use in business. Jo Dee walks you through how to use Gmail and Google's other Apps (such as Google Drive, Sheets, Keep, Voice, etc.), sharing with you how she uses them in her own business. Even though I had used many of these apps before, I still learned quite a bit from the lessons. In fact, I still refer back to her Google Sheets video from time to time. Other programs taught include Survey Monkey, Mail Chimp, and Asana. I personally have found the course very useful. Because of taking it, I am more proficient with general admin. and tasks and best of all, have found a great way to handle all of those passwords! Thank you, Jo Dee!"
The course is complete and ready for you to start right away.
From time to time we may have live Q&A sessions that will allow you to ask any questions you may have in a Zoom Meeting.
The one-month unpaid apprenticeship with us will begin after you have completed the modules, you feel you are ready, and you have contacted Jo Dee to let her know you are ready to start.
After your apprenticeship with Jo Dee, and you are ready, we will find a client for you for an unpaid apprenticeship.
A class like this can change your life. In fact, depending on your skill level and aptitude, you may be able to recover the investment in this class in a month or two after you start working. We're basically offering you a way to have your own home business. Online training for courses like this can cost from $2,695 - $8,995. But because we want to make this opportunity available to moms and girls who want to work from home, we are offering it for a limited time only for just $597!
Members of Educating for Success can contact us for a discount code!
Compare it to the cost of college because what you'll learn in just two months can give you the skills you need to start your own business without spending 4 years and tons of money!
I want you to be satisfied with our two month Administrative Virtual Assistant Course, and I know you will be, so...
And if after participating in all the classes and two months of apprenticeship, you are not thoroughly convinced that this course is worth your investment, just let me know at the end of the last class, and your refund request will be honored.
Simply email us and verify that you attended every training session. We will issue the refund, take you off our mailing list and you will never hear from us again.
