This multiweek program will walk you through steps required to launch your own virtual assistant business. This will be a hands on, highly interactive, full commitment required program. Attendance will be limited due the personalized individual attention you will receive. This will be a COLLABORATIVE program, NOT competitive! My goal is that by the end of the program, you will have laid the groundwork to begin earning an extra $500-1000 a month.
Please note that this first group will be a beta group, which is why this program is being offered at a VERY reasonable cost. If I ever offer this program again, it is very likely the cost will increase.
I will have a private group set up where we can interact on a daily basis. There will be weekly assignments and biweekly webinars on Saturday mornings from 8-10 am central time. The bi-weekly webinars will include an education component and a hotseat component where you report in on your progress and we brainstorm solutions for challenges facing you. If you are unable to make the live webinars, they will be recorded, but I strongly suggest you plan to attend.
PLEASE NOTE: There are no refunds after the mastermind begins.
What we will cover:
Logistics of setting up a home office, selecting a business name, etc.
Understanding the roles you will need to fill as an entrepreneur
Identifying a unique niche for yourself, based on your own experience, education, passion and interests
Creating a business plan
Identifying your ideal target audience

Attendees will be provided access to the live webinar series as well as the link to the recordings for at least 30 days following the completion of the mastermind. All attendees will receive a copy of any PowerPoint slides used during the biweekly webinars.
