Want an inside look?
Take a sneak peek of The Creative VA Masterclass!
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
One of my ah-ha moments was not only knowing my pricing but also knowing my value! Since joining the course, I have set up my website, and had a client double her hours with me because she loved my work style!
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 turned agency owner. 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.
Since starting my business, Ava And The Bee in 2018, I have grown from charging $30 per hour, to a team of five employees, hitting $190,000+ years, with a waitlist of wedding pros excited to work with us.
GET TO KNOW THE FACE BEHIND THE COURSE
Since starting my business, Ava And The Bee, in 2018, I have grown from charging $30 per hour, to a team of five employees, hitting $190,000+ years, with a waitlist of wedding pros excited to work with us.
But it wasn't easy. I made a lot of mistakes, spent countless hours up past midnight doing client work, and have definitely undercharged what I am worth. And I quickly found that there wasn't education for creative virtual assistants. I had so many questions, and no one to answer them!
I started right where you are - with a seven year old laptop, a comfy couch, and a dream.
Which is why I have created this course! I want to show you the tools you need to succeed.
I don’t just teach students - I run my own six figure business agency.
I don’t just teach ideas- I teach real solutions that I have exceeded myself in my own business.
I don’t just know the creative industry - I have owned multiple businesses in the space. From being a milliner (aka hat maker) and selling online, to owning a wedding planning + bridal boutique
This isn’t my first six figure business - and it won’t be my last. So while other coaches might be showing you some ideas, I actually implement these in my own business, every single day..
I started The Creative VA Academy in 2019, and since have taught and helped over 350 creative virtual assistants reach goals they never believed were possible.
First things first: There are a lot of interchangeable names. So whether you want to call yourself a creative virtual assistant, a social media manager, a freelancer… they are all the same thing!
A virtual assistant is a self-employed worker, who offers various services to clients. The tasks you can provide as a virtual assistant are endless: from social media, to admin, to website design, to graphic design. You can do ANYTHING you want!
But the best part? You can start making money right away - without a lot of clients! I personally was able to replace my full-time job with just 4 clients. You don’t need thousands of Instagram followers or an email list to get started. We teach inside the course a package-first mindset. So while you will have a starting hourly rate of $30+ per hour, we will walk you through how to make profitable packages (and more $$!)
Just hear it from Erin, a real student: “I booked 4 clients, just one month after I launched my business and finished the course. I made back what I spent on her course right away! I’ve already made more per month being a virtual assistant than I had been a teaching paraprofessional back then. This course is so worth it!!”
What exactly is a Creative VA and how much can I really make?
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.
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.
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!
Can I do this on the side while I work a 9-5 job?
The best part of being a virtual assistant is that you don’t need any prior experience! You can get started now, with the skill sets you have now - and add more services down the road as you learn them. In fact, I encourage you start with one or two services to start with, so that you can scale quickly.
But the best part? When you join us in inside The Creative VA Coaching Experience, you will also get access to THREE electives:
+ The Showit Elective (so you can learn how to build showit websites).
+ The Blogging Elective (so you can learn how to blog for clients).
+ The Pinterest Elective (so you can learn how to be a Pinterest manager).
Are you teaching specific skills a VA can offer? Or just how to set up a VA business? What skills do I need?
Nope! There is no selling random products, no buying up thousands of dollars worth of products just to get to the next “level” or texting everyone you have ever known about buying your product.
This is a real, and legal, online business. You set your services, make your own hours, set your own pricing. If you take home $500/month in services, you keep that. There is no one you pay just for starting. Now, you’ll have to pay taxes on it, but that’s a completely different topic for another day (and don’t worry, I’ll teach you all about that)!
There isn’t a hierarchy of people making money through you - this is YOU owning a business!
Is this a MLM or just another internet scam?
I know firsthand how it’s easy to start to feel imposter syndrome, or get stuck along the way. That is why you will have access to me (Adrienna!) for eight weeks. From our Facebook group, to our weekly coaching calls, you will have the support of myself AND all the other students!
How much support do I get? What if I get stuck along the way?
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?
The calls with take place every Tuesday at 11AM or 5PM Central (to allow for more people to join us!) If you can’t make it, no problem. We will ask for you to submit your question prior to our call, and all calls will be recorded and placed inside our Facebook Group so you can re-watch.
However, I highly encourage you to attend as many calls as you can. Students attend the group coaching calls book out 3x faster than students who do it on their own.
When are the calls? What if I can’t make the calls?
Yes! You can pay in full, or break it up into three payments.
is there a payment plan?
I started my business very part time when I had a newborn and toddler in 2019. I’ve grown my business according to how many hours I had available over the years and as childcare has increased. It took me 2 years to get to a full-time income, but this has always been a business I’m building specifically to fit around my family. If you’re serious about creating a long term business doing anything, then you need to invest in a program to help you.
For me, Creative VA Academy is something I refer back at least a couple times a month. I already had the start of a successful business starting in it, but it gave me more confidence, has kept me from quitting when things got hard & helped me move forward even more.
What just a few students are saying...
