By becoming a virtual assistant... in 30 days or less!

You've got skills... right

Right! I don’t mean nunchuck skills or bowstaff skills like Napoleon Dynamite, but hard-core marketable skills like: 

  • Time management
  • Email management
  • Project management
  • Content production and more!

If you do, then 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success will show you how you can turn those skills into cold hard cash!


As Seen In:

FACT: Successful entrepreneurs can't do it all on their own.

They think they can, but then realize... they can't. 

It's just too much for one person to handle.

They need help. Help from somone like YOU. 

You - who is smart, savvy and armed with marketable skills that business owners will pay good money for.  

But how do you take these skills to market and start to get paid for them?

Glad you asked!

It's the reason why I wrote this course, 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success. 

More on that in a second...

First, I want to tell you that it's not just about having the skills entrepreneurs and business owners desire, it's about learning how to create, market and sustain your own virtual assistant career.  

A career that I will guide you through creating in this course. 

Maybe you're just looking to make some money on the side doing VA work? That's okay too. 

Regardless, this course can help you achieve your ideal career and work/life balance. 

How am I so sure? I've achieved that dream and now I'm going to teach you exactly how I did it in 30 days or less. 

Read on to learn more about the course and feel free to watch the video interviews with current and former students to determine it's a right fit for you.

Student Interview: Esther

While taking the course, Esther was able to land a VA job with her dream company - one that she'd been admiring for years and that inspired her to make her own lifestyle changes!

After just TWO WEEKS her new client sat her down, asked her five year plan and wanted to know how they could incorporate her into their overall business strategy. Crazy, right?

This course helped Esther:

  • Gain an inside look at the world of VA work.
  • Start her VA side hustle on the side of her day job.
  • Write custom pitches which helped her land clients.

We'll help you build a foundation for your VA career.

Isn't Esther's story great?

By simply implementing what is taught in the course she was able to turn her passions into a paid position with an up-and-coming company. And after just two weeks secured herself a long-term spot on the team.

You can do the same. 

At the end of each lesson, we've provided at least one action step to show so you know exactly what you need to do to get closer to launching your own VA business. 

Other courses we've seen simply tell you what to do, but don't necessarily show you how to do it. They leave students wondering what to do next. 

But not here. 

Because we've found that the best way to get results is to readily implement what you've learned. And we've tried to make it as easy as possible for you to do the same.  

Take Esther, she's found her dream job. One that she would have never thought to pitch without taking 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success.

Maybe you're not looking for your dream job. Maybe you just want some extra cash or to dip your toe into the world of virtual assistant work.  

No problemo, amiga!

We have two convenient payment options to choose from to help you get started ASAP.


"I love this content – it's clear, actionable and it's even helping me sort out what not to do! I really relate to your "voice," the friendly, comrade cum expert, walk alongside tone. Thanks Gina!" 

~Diane Zimmerman, Student 

Hold up - Who’s teaching this course anyway?

Definitely not Kermit the Frog!

Hi, I’m Gina Horkey, author of 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success, a course that’s sold over 1,000 copies and counting.

I built a successful freelance writing and virtual assistant business from scratch in less than six months (while working full-time and being a mama to two toddlers).

And I was able to earn more than $4,000 in a single month – just as a side hustle.  

Freelance writing was my first foray into working virtually, but it wasn't too much later that I added virtual assistant (VA) services to my repertoire.

Now VA work has been a part of my overall freelance business for more than two years. And before that, I was part support person and part advisor to a large financial planning practice for 6+ years.

I know a thing or two about this type of work and what it takes to succeed.

And honestly, it’s pretty rad.

Seriously though, I’m just a gal from rural Minnesota who works her butt off to be a successful VA, writer and webpreneur. Heck, if I can do this, so can you!


Student Interview: Rob

Rob is an alumni of 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success who found the course through a Facebook group post and was excited to confirm through taking it that he already had great skills that he could put to work in return for pay.

He also figured out:

  • His top three VA service offerings. 
  • How to repurpose his customer service and management skills.
  • That he was actually good at research! 
  • That freelance writing and VA work go hand-in-hand.

Rob started by dipping his toe into VA work and decided to allocate more hours once he felt confident he could make this whole VA thing work. Not only that, he's branched out and is taking on writing clients now too!

So... how does this course work?  

Once you hand over your money er, sign up, you'll get immediate (and lifetime) access to the course. 

It's a self-paced format with all of the lessons being open for access ASAP. Each lesson is succinct and actionable, encouraging you to implement what you’ve learned immediately. And every lesson ends with a tangible action item or two that you should complete to build your business, before moving onto the next one.

There are 12 modules in all and each module contains somewhere between 3-7 lessons. After you go through all of that module's lessons, there's a checklist of the action items, plus a quiz to make sure the content sinks in.

Since you determine when to advance to the next module, you could take the entire course in as little as a few days or stretch it out over a few months – it’s up to you! But if you consistently make time to work through the material, by the end of the 30 days, you will have built a solid foundation to launch your VA business from!

Gina, what makes YOU qualified to teach ME?

All jokes aside, I've built a pretty darn successful freelance writing and virtual assistant business over the last few years. And in the beginning, I did so while being the breadwinner (without corporate benefits), working full-time and having two littles at home.

I've continued to remain the breadwinner after leaving work behind at the end of 2014. I know what it's like to build a business from scratch, to start it first as a side hustle and to make the leap to full-time freelancing.

And I’ve been able to more than quadruple my earnings since going full-time.

So... I kinda know what I'm doing. 

And I'm also pretty transparent - check out my first year's freelance income below or click here to read my income reports.

Student Interview: Erica

Erica was one of the first students of this course! And she actually helped me to revamp it post beta and put out the product that we have today (which is phenomenal!). 

Even though the beta looks a bit different than what we currently have, Erica was super excited when it initially came to market, because it had everything she was looking for. (And now it has even more!)

In addition to landing me as a client after taking the course, she:

  • Landed her day job employer as a social media client.
  • Gained increased confidence from going through the material.
  • Grew her network and her VA client base!

Virtual assistants ARE in demand!

It's true - check it out:

Did you know...

  • There has been a 95% increase in demand for VAs in the last three years? 
  • The average North American virtual assistant earns $35 to $50 per hour (with some going as low as $25 per hour and others as high as $100 per hour)? 
  • A recent survey by Elance shows 69% are happier freelancing than working in a regular office-based position? 

Perhaps you're wondering: "Is this course for me?" 

Well, let me tell you: 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success is ideal for brand new VAs.  

It's for people that want to make money helping small business owners virtually and are willing to work hard to get a new web-based virtual assistant business off the ground inside of a month (or two).

30DOL to VA Success will teach you the fastest, most effective and most reliable process we know of for building a profitable freelance VA business while having the flexibility to work from anywhere. 

In short, it's a proven method of success for starting your own virtual assistant business from scratch – either as a standalone freelance business or to supplement your part or full-time job. 

Others in your position have gone through the material, implemented what they've learned and taken their business to the next level. 

If they can do it, so can you!

"This course provided a clear look into the world of VA work. Each lesson was easy to understand and had specific and actionable steps that I was able to implement immediately. By the end, I revamped my resume, decided what services to offer and finalized my VA hire me page. I’d recommend this course to anyone interested in becoming a virtual assistant!"
