Welcome to Horkey HandBook!

I’m Gina Horkey – since 2014 I’ve been helping people start and grow their own freelance writing and virtual assistant businesses by openly sharing my own journey.

Why? In May of 2014, I decided to start my own side hustle offering writing and email management services. And within a few months I was earning $4,000 per month (in addition to my day job income!), working full-time and raising 2 toddlers.

It wasn’t much later that I gave my boss the “pink slip” and became a full-time webpreneur. You too can start living the life you want, without having to be filthy rich or waiting to retire.

Student Success Stories

Debora Cavett


“Once I started the VA Foundations course, the fire within me was lit. The thought of having my own business, managing my own time, being my own boss and creating something I was truly passionate about kept me going while working a 9-5 job I didn’t enjoy. The day I went full-time with my VA business – just 8 months after finishing the course – was one of the happiest of my life. I love working with my clients from all over the US and in all kinds of different niches, giving them valuable time and energy back for doing what they love and want to do. Thank you, Horkey HandBook, for helping me create a life where I like to go to work every single day.”

“I’m freaking out right now – I wrote one case study on email management and woke up this morning to a new client lead in my inbox. Gina, if you were next to me, I’d be squeezing your hand SO hard right now!”
