Learn the skills, strategies & tools you need to start a thriving creative virtual assistant business.
Close your eyes now (yep, seriously, close them!), let out that breath you’ve been holding, and get excited -
we’re about to start your creative virtual assistant businesses together.
What would happen if your business took off tomorrow? If that dream you quietly think about in the back of your mind, the one you sometimes allow yourself to dream bigger about, what if it was your reality?
What if you could take your love of design, and working for creatives - and turn that into a business.
What if you had the exact step by step blueprint you needed to start this business - and have support every step of the way.
What if, within three months from now, you had three clients - and were quitting your 9-5 job.
And the doubt you feel about pricing what you really want to price? That doubt doesn’t belong here.
That supposed “step-by-step” course you took a few months ago and that $37 e-book haven’t gotten you where you thought you’d be by now, have they?
Oh, and should we even mention the daily overwhelm? How many free downloads, Pinterest rabbit holes, and saved ‘3 STEPS TO 6 FIGURES’ Instagram posts have you collected, too overwhelmed to fully dive into any of them and put the shallow tips to use?
Stop spending hours searching for the right training.
Grow an in-demand creative virtual assistant business, that gives you flexibility and consistent income.
Imagine what life would be like if...
You had a complete A-Z blueprint + step-by-step action plan to get your business started, and set you up for long-term success.
You had a business you were proud of. I mean really dang proud of. That you confidently talked about to everyone you meet.
You were finally doing a job you loved, working for clients you loved.
You had financial independence and freedom. No more being stressed about making ends meet. Contribute to your household while still being there for all the little moments.
You had the option to work from anywhere - and not be tied down.
You had access to an exclusive community of other people in your exact same shoes, looking to build their business the same way.
You do something that makes you happy, keeps your stress to a minimum, and gives you the time and freedom to spend more time with your family. Or your pets. Or just binging more Schitt's Creek on Netflix.

Week Nine is our Group Coaching Call #4: Onboarding clients with ease.
I feel like there was an “Ah-Ha” moment in almost every module. So much of it helped me structure my business and eliminate all of those "how do I do ____?" so I really felt very prepared when I finally launched my business!
I just want to thank Adrienna for putting this program together. When I built my first business there was so much trial and error that took up so much of my time, and by going through The Creative VA Academy I felt like I just cut through all of that and get up and running so much quicker! I'm so grateful and so excited to launch my new business!”
The Creative VA Masterclass is the first of its kind that not only teaches you how to start a virtual assistant business - but how to focus on creative industries + creative services.
When I got started, I spent countless hours searching for the right answers. All I could find was information for admin virtual assistants, there was nothing out there for creatives like us.
Our clients are often small business owners themselves, who are wanting an amazing service, with fellow professionals and experts. And we often create deep and meaningful content, that goes beyond just spreadsheets and emails.
Teach you how to not only land your first client but keep them happy and coming back month after month for your services.
Show you how to budget for this journey, or how to allow it to replace your full-time job (or, a part-time side income!)
Set you up for a successful business that grows year after year.
Teach you exactly how to target, serve, and get clients in creative industries.
Bonus workshops include behind the scenes of real client projects, so you can see exactly how to do it. Video Workshops include Pinterest, Tailwind, Trello, Blogging in WordPress, Blogging in Squarespace, Canva, and more!
Each week includes video, clear step by step instruction, workbooks, templates and resource guides to make implementing easy. You also get a BONUS Week Nine: Mastering Client Satisfaction.
The entire program is available online, so you can do the work from anywhere!

Joining The Creative VA Masterclass has been unreal in all the best ways possible. I started out having no idea what a Virtual Assistant could even do and now I'm at the point where I can confidently launch my business and start bringing in clients. Every week I knew what we would be working on and what the goals were for each module. When I started my previous business there was so much trial and error, and a lot of feeling like I was alone while I was getting it off the ground. I don't feel that way this time and I'm so grateful to Adrienna for creating a course that has given me the tools to launch a successful business!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
The idea of becoming a VA was simply that - an idea. I didn't know where to even begin, how to open your own business, any of those important steps! But since joining The Creative VA Academy, I am currently growing a business that I know I will be able to be proud of! I am currently getting ready to plan out my 4-week launch strategy and none of this would have been possible without you and your education! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Before The Creative VA Academy, I was struggling with business structure and direction. I was kind of floating through, piecing the pieces together, but not really on a clear path. Since going through The Creative VA Academy, I now have a business I am proud to share with the world.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I started the VA academy with wanting to learn what being a VA is and where to start. This course is so amazing, everything I have done in my business has 100% came from this course. It has literally given me the courage to start my business and put myself out there! This is the first time I have been so excited and felt so right in a career when I decided I wanted to do this I had no idea how or where to begin. This course spells it out and makes it so simple to begin. So excited for the future and so happy I am apart of the VA Academy!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
For the first time in my life, I feel like success is possible and that I can face my fears of starting my own business without being overwhelmed. I feel like this course granted me unlimited freedom and possibilities for my creativity and the road ahead. I have finally said, "Yes" to me and giving my dreams a REAL chance. MAJOR! I'm so grateful. Thank you so much for pouring your heart into this course. I feel like you gave us SO MUCH content (way more than I imagined when I purchased it) and really made sure we were set up for success.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Before The Creative VA Academy, I had taken courses to learn skills. The courses talked about getting your business started but, they felt less involved. I joined The Creative VA Academy because I gained so much from your free, 5 Day Challenge, and I love how you stated the material in a way that clicked for me! Before The Creative VA Academy, I was struggling with the confidence to get started. I needed clarity in what I could offer and how the seemingly random choices I had would tie together into one business. I am moving forward finally!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Before The Creative VA Academy, I felt overwhelmed by the process of starting my own business. I had no idea where to go and I had no time to research as I had a 3 month old. It has sped up the process tremendously of starting my own business. It would have taken me at least 10x as long to learn everything I did with your course. It is so much better to invest your money in a course like The Creative VA Academy than to try to figure it out on your own! That will cost you SO much more money in time. The Masterclass has sped up the process tremendously of starting my own business.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Since being in The Creative VA Masterclass, I've actually taken the steps I know I needed to take (and some I didn't know). I've outlined services and know how to price them. I know more about how to market, pitch, network. I have a potential client in the works already! Another VA I connected with a few months ago sent her my way and I was able to confidently state my services and rate over a discovery call!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
No, I'm not the bride in the picture, I am the one putting on her shoes. Because when you own a business, it's not all glitter and gold. It's hard work!
I am a former wedding professional turned virtual assistant. After 10 years in the wedding industry, working in both bridal, wedding planning and floral, and designing accessories, it was time for a change. I wanted a job that had more freedom, better hours, and allowed me to work from home. And while the pajamas are a huge perk, being able to work from anywhere, for clients I love, is the best experience in the world.
Getting into the wedding and creative industry isn’t easy. After 10 years, I have learned how hard it can be. Vendors want to work with people with experience, who know the industries they are in. They want people who can give them quality service, and work with them side by side.
Which is why I have created this course! I want to show you the tools you need to succeed. From the best applications to what your website needs to have on it, it’s in The Creative VA Masterclass.
GET TO KNOW THE FACE BEHIND THE COURSE
I know you might be thinking, "Oh, I'll just start later."
But what happens when that later turns into never?
While you are waiting to start your business...
... someone in the Academy just booked a new client.
... that girl you follow on Instagram just hit the $5,000 a month goal.
... someone offering the exact same packages as you just booked a new client for double what you charge.
I know how much easier it is to put something on hold than to jump into doing it. It's so much easier to just wait another day. But that day turns into another week. Another month.
The number one thing people say about this course? That they wish they had started sooner.
Are you ready?
join the waitlist!
Yes! We offer two payment plans. You can break the payments into three months, or two months - whatever works best for you!
Do you offer a payment plan?
The doors are closing June 21st at midnight - and will not reopen until Fall 2021. If you want to start your successful business before Fall, the time to join is NOW!
what happens when doors close? can I join again later?
Yes! What is so great about working virtually is that you set your own hours. You can complete the client work on your free time, around your current lifestyle.
Can I do this on the side while I work a 9-5 job?
Both! Not only do I share how to set up your business, but I also go over skills & services. I will share what industries require what skill sets, what programs they use, how to structure your pricing (both hourly and packages), give you walkthroughs on how to do certain services, and much more!
Are you teaching specific skills a VA can offer? Or just how to set up a VA business?
If you are starting your business from scratch, you should take The Masterclass first! This way you can have everything set up in your business, and be ready to take clients. The Pinterest Elective does not cover business setup - it focuses on the skills you need to offer it as a service.
I ALSO WANT TO JOIN THE PINTEREST ELECTIVE. WHICH DO I TAKE FIRST?
The Creative VA Masterclass is not just a proven framework that walks you through creating a successful creative VA business, but also includes group support, accountability, and expert guidance when roadblocks happen.
The course includes 4 Group Coaching Calls. Each call covers how to overcome roadblocks in your business, with the chance for students to ask questions and get 1:1 feedback from Adrienna on every aspect of their business.
Students attend the group coaching calls book out 3x faster than students who do it on their own.
what are the group coaching calls?
The goal of this course is for you to get clients as soon as possible! As soon as you have your business legally set up, you are ready to start booking clients. The Masterclass will help you offer services using the skills you have now, and get paid now!
How soon can I start getting clients?
If only! One of the reasons I created this course is because there is SO MUCH incorrect and outdated information online about how to start your VA business.
The Creative VA Masterclass, is constantly evolving and changing… do you want to use strategies from outdated blog posts with tactics that don’t work anymore … or do you want to use strategies from a newly updated course with proven results from 75+ other students?
Could I just find this information for free online?
I so get that. One of the reasons I created this course is because I KNOW how busy you are - and how many hours you can spend down rabbit holes trying to learn how to start your business. I have been there - I’ve watched every single video ever created about starting a VA business. This course will take some time - starting a business doesn’t happen overnight. But 78% of those who have taken the course also had a full time job - and were able to start their business!
It’s broken up into 8 modules, so if you tackle it in 8 weeks, that is 1 hour of training per week, 1 hour of homework per week. 2 Hours a week to get your business started!
Is The Creative VA Masterclass going to take forever to finish? I am so busy!
Yes! This is perfect for those who have started their business, but are unsure if they set it up properly, or are not getting the right clients that they want to work with. This course is for those who have started, or those who are brand new!
Can I Join Event If I’ve started my business?
