Using skills you already have.
Or by learning a few new ones?

We'll walk you, step-by-step through the entire process. From business foundations to selecting your niche to pitching clients. Throw in a little bit of determination you'll be up and running before you know it.
"Thank you for this wonderful course - I learned so, so much! Becoming a VA is new to me and your course taught me step-by-step everything I needed to know to become a successful VA. I don’t believe I could have found a better course (or teacher) to learn from. Everything was so detailed oriented and easy-to-understand.
I also want to thank you for all of the time and effort you put into the spreadsheets, worksheets, checklists, example letters and email responses, enhanced resources, templates and so on. So much valuable information! Seriously, you leave no room for excuses on why someone shouldn’t be able to become a successful VA." ~Tammy Knight, 30DOL Alumn
In early 2014, I (Gina Horkey) didn’t even know that working online as a virtual assistant was a thing. Suffice it to say, my entire world opened up when I found out!
I didn’t understand that people just like you and me were able to build sustainable businesses helping other small business owners from afar and get paid hundreds or thousands of dollars each month in the process.
You mean I could work from anywhere in the world (in my yoga pants) if I wanted? Without having to join a MLM, sell my soul or go back to school to get another degree?
Heck yeah, sign me up!
You see, I was desperate for a career change and to find some type of work that I was passionate about. But as the breadwinner of our young family of four I was a bit leery. Could this new-fangled online business schtick really work for me?
Could it really replace my cushy and dependable salary in personal finance?
Was it scary? Heck yes!
But that’s why I started my business as a side hustle first to validate the concept. And that’s what I’d recommend that you do as well.
Maybe you’re just looking to pull in a little extra income into your household?
That’s cool, this course will work for you too!
Did you know:
Make sense though, right?
With technology advancements, businesses are more comfortable than ever working virtually.
They’re open to (and in some cases prefer) hiring contractors, freelancers and the like. It saves them a crapload of money (think benefits, employment taxes, etc.) and time when it comes to training a new employee.
So why wouldn’t the need be increasing?
“I needed a VA to help with a product launch. I only had 2 weeks until launch and was looking for immediate help. Horkey Handbook came through and saved the day! I received multiple high quality applications – and hired someone within a few days. The VA I worked with was amazing… she kept me sane during my launch, completed all tasks AHEAD of time, and went above and beyond in numerous ways (including making insightful suggestions for my next launch). I can’t recommend Gina’s Virtual Assistant Finder enough!” ~ Sally Miller
"I got a paid interview for the VERY FIRST VA job I applied for, and within three days was awarded the position! Even though everything he asked me to do was new to me, he was fine with me learning as I went. It's a win/win - he gets someone he can mold and I get to learn new skills while getting paid! As a bonus, I'll make enough from him alone to basically make my monthly budget, allowing me to make extra money throughout the month or just pursue my own interests." ~Caylie Martin, 30DOL Alumn
"I finished the course late in the day yesterday. You’ve done an excellent job of educating, making sure we grasped the concepts by adding the quizzes at the end and giving us actionable steps to start our own VA career. Thank you doesn’t seem like enough for all of the obvious hard work you have put into your course to help people like me move forward. I have subscribed to other communities and courses in the past, but none have provided the “how to” like 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success!" ~Joan Garder, 30DOL Alumn

Have more questons? We have answers!
I'm embarrassed to ask, but what exactly is a VA?
Don’t be embarrassed! VA stands for virtual assistant and basically means that you’re helping someone out from afar. I.e. You have a service to offer, they are in need of your service and you make a deal to trade time (or task) for pay.
There are TONS of services that can fall under the VA or virtual assistant umbrella – including services like social media, email or blog management, graphic creation, accounting… the list goes on!
I have a day job - can I still build a VA business in the evenings?
You bet! Most tasks aren't time-sensitive, so you can do them on your time, around your current 9-5, your family, etc.
You might end up working with clients all over the world that are in completely different time zones. Both of my VAs are overseas right now, for example and it works great!
Will this course work for me if I don't live in the United States?
Sure! There are tons of students living outside the U.S. who have built successful careers after taking 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success. That's the beauty of virtual work!
One thing to keep in mind though, is that if you want to work with English-speaking clients, you should have a sufficient handle on writing, reading and speaking English too.
How long does it take to finish the course?
It really depends on you, your schedule and your work ethic.
Some students have made their way through the course in a weekend, while for others it takes a few months. The course is self-paced, with all of the material being available to you immediately upon enrollment, so it’s really up to you!
Can I really find success within 30 days?
You sure can!
I get emails each week from new students sharing their successes and how they just landed their first paying gig. And it makes me smile every time!
But success doesn’t come without effort...
In addition to reading the material, you’ll need to complete the action steps (each lesson includes at least one).
And while it may seem scary at first, putting yourself out there and asking to be hired via pitching (the freelancing term for prospecting) is what’s going to get you there! You got this!
