YOU’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR A CAREER TO DO FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR YOGA PANTS, AND SO FAR THE OPPORTUNITIES HAVEN’T SEEMED ALL THAT HOT.
It’s not like you haven’t tried. You’ve put in the elbow grease. And worked a few stints online. But….
MLMs? Wayyyy harder than that essential oils rep promised. Working from home full-time for a company? You’re still stuck to a schedule! And being a stay-at-home mom? You’re secretly too entrepreneurial at heart for that.
So after months of googling MORE work from home jobs telling you to “teach English online!” “Sell Isagenix!” “Heck, buy a silhouette machine and make some freakin’ T-shirts!”
— YOU’RE AT THE END OF YOUR ROPE.
Time-freedom is still a distant dream as you’re stuck in the weeds of working-parent life with kiddos or doggos. You cringe, asking your partner to foot the utility bills (again). Your boss is a strict no-laundry on Zoom calls kinda dude. And your newborn’s suddenly 2!! Weren’t these online gigs supposed to help you exit the J-O-B to be more present for the fam? How’d you miss so much of her life? Something isn’t working here…
Let’s face it, joining this whole “great resignation thing” happening across the world is sounding as spicy as happy hour right about now.
So you’re deffffffinitely in the market for something new.
Enter Virtual Assisting…
OO LA LA.
The prospect of it is freakin’ magical! Make your own hours? Charge WAY more than most day jobs? And work with clients you absolutely love — all while curled up on your comfy couch behind your laptop!?
Even better, it’s NOT another flashy pyramid scheme hiding their sellers’ *actual* penny-less income reports.
And you’re already dreaming of the day you afford extra childcare, join the fancy gym in town, and book local staycations over a long weekend cuz Thursday is your Friday.
There’s just one little (OK BIG) thing you don’t know: how to get started (and how to do it without spending thousands of dollars and hours).
Before you run back to that 9-5, worried you don’t have
“the skills” to be a Virtual Assistant
I’m laying out the IG-highlight version for you, here’s the sitch —
None of us are bursting with self-confidence when we first jump into the whole “become-a-VA” thing. If you’re like most success stories, I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re already imagining a long list of “what-if” scaries.
Ummm, have you met the two hundred eighty + alumni of this program (we lovingly call them Starters!)?? They’ve got some serious “my-confidence-is-on-the-struggle-bus!” stories. And are STILL charging up to $45/hour with plans to raise their rates this year. All because they took 1 step at a time, on the bite-sized roadmap I gave them.
And truth, you don’t need to “become” anyone different to see wild success.
And based on your million attempts to make money from home, I can tell you now — you have the skills. Or if today’s the FIRST time you’re hearing about virtual assisting? You still. have. the skills.
All you hafta do is let me show you how to transfer ‘em into the VA world. Oh and IF you need new ones, they’re easy-as-pie to learn. And I’ll show you how to learn them too.
“When I began THE START, I literally had no idea where to even begin with creating my online business. The program gave me the confidence and the leads to sign my first client. I even made $3k in my first month of business!
Today, I can confidently say that I have a solid foundation, and simple processes in place to keep my business strong and moving forward. I have successfully reached income goals that I didn’t think were possible (hello consistent $5k months), and I now have a community of like-minded entrepreneurs supporting and cheering me on. Without THE START, I would likely still be doing research to figure out where to begin.”
Virtual HR Support – HR Guru + VA + OBM
How to be a
who’s *actually* balanced,
and has money rolling in
EVERY SINGLE MONTH
IT’LL REQUIRE SAYING “NO MORE” TO STUFF,
- No more taking whatever laptop job will pay you (“your budget is $10 an hour? I’ll need to host a bunch of jewelry parties? Sure, I can do that!”)
- No more charging “what feels good;” it’s time for set-in-stone prices!
- No more side hustles that don’t ever get off the ground
- No more freebie-download-sprees, promising you the “4 Secrets to insert-something-biz-related-here!”— expecting that to put your VA business together
- No more clocking in to a buzzkill boss. No more answering to a manager who ignores the fact that you’re a freaking human being with needs. And no more being denied time off requests!
…AS ONE OF MY STUDENTS SAID, “AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!”
EVEN IF YOU’RE EYEING OTHER WORK-FROM-HOME OPTIONS,
Becoming a Virtual Assistant is the SMARTEST decision you can make if you want to fully own your bank account and calendar’s white space.
All those other options *cough MLM cough* take way more work, require way more up-front investment and take way more months to actually become profitable. And schedules are rarely flex.
Make money in your sleep? More like drain your purse without a peep.
I know, because I’ve tried most of them (oh heyyyy beachbody, yoga cert., health coach)
The woman I signed up to join beachbody with all those years ago? She just left her classroom job after replacing her salary with a VA business she started in my program.
VIRTUALLY ASSISTING IS ONE OF THE FEW CAREERS WHERE HAVING NO EXPERIENCE — IS NO PROBLEM!
Did I tell you most people who jump into the VA scene, start with ZERO experience!?
Yep, my students have ditched jobs like teaching, marketing, and barista-ing to triple their income as a Virtual Assistant.
And they’ve done it without ever skipping a soccer game, tapping into a 401k, or hiring a team.
So stop scrolling through Instagram, thinking you can’t be one of those WFH (work from home) rockstars you envy so hard just because your life thus far has looked different. There IS a business inside of you even if the hosting-gel-nail-parties idea tanked. You’re already an entrepreneur — there’s just no possible way you could see it yet!
Like any woman who’s gone before you, you have to start doing it first (the confidence won’t come ‘til later — that sneaky bish!)
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE THE NEXT SHARK TANK ENTREPRENEUR WHOSE
BUSINESS IS HER BABY IN ORDER FOR THIS TO WORK
TRUST ME, I STARTED A BUSINESS WITH A BABY — AND HE’S STILL MY MAIN FOCUS.
You already know you want to work for yourself. That. is. Enough.
You’re resourceful. People already come to you to “figure stuff out” like excel sheets! You’re a perpetual learner who probs get bored easily. You always found corporate careers to be #boringgggg anyway.
You’ve already got IT! You don’t need to run Facebook ads, create a digital course, or become a coach to work less hours than ever before while making darn.good.money.
You don’t need a 10k Instagram following (heck ghost IG for good and still have a successful VA business).
You don’t need a splashy, stamped VA certification to be booked out.
And lucky for you, there’s one cuts-to-the-chase system to follow…
TO TAKE YOU FROM 0 TO FULLY-FUNCTIONING VIRTUAL ASSISTANT IN 6 WEEKS FLAT.
(And no, you’re NOT too late to the virtual world party!) Every day, thousands of your potential clients start their businesses.The need for Virtual Assistants is growing RAPIDLY — and the last few years only set that need ablaze! The amount of opportunity for you… is astonishing.
Brick + mortar shops, consultants, coaches, and agencies are begging to team up with a savvy, right-hand VA—and that’s a tiny snapshot of the business types ready to pay you today with skills you already have in your backpocket.
“I AM GIVING THE START A 5 STAR RATING AND A ROUND OF APPLAUSE.
I can’t stop ranting and raving about this course. Everything was incredible, from the course layout & delivery, the homework assignments and added bonuses – Sara knocked this out of the park!
As a working mom of two little ones, I found it easy to incorporate these bite sized lessons into my daily routine! I entered this course doubtful and walked away confident and ready to take on the world!
During THE START, I booked 2 clients and in the final week of the course, I had 2 discovery calls! THE START gave me a confidence boost that I desperately needed. Today, I am not afraid to put my name out there and just do it. I went from an aspirant to achiever! When I began this program, I had nothing. Today, my business has a name, service offerings and most importantly clients.”
Owner, SLSmith Virtual Solutions
If this is as exciting to you as it is to me — then keep reading. Because what follows could be the PIVOTAL moment you look back on 6 weeks from now, when your first handsomely-paying-clients are funding your date night out.
“THE START REALLY HELPED WITH MY CONFIDENCE.
Sara helped me realize that I truly offer a high level service, and that I can charge more for that. I love the way Sara teaches. She’s so straight
forward and such a great business coach!
Since joining the course I’ve been able to raise my hourly rate from $30/hr to $50/hr. I now have all my clients on retainers! OH I also quit my job the first week in August because I completely replaced and doubled what I was earning at my part time office job. Going through THE START, being consistent on social media, and fully booking myself gave me the confidence to finally leave. I now make more and I’m home with both of my kids!”
Jackie Ceja Creative, Marketing VA for
Photographers & Online Coaches
Where will you be in 6 weeks?
BECAUSE ONCE YOU BUILD YOUR *BY-GOLLY-THIS-IS-FINALLY-IT!*
BUSINESS, YOU’LL HAVE THE POWER TO:
Cut through the OMG NOISE EVERYWHERE on the internet and go straight to the stuff that’s actually gonna build your VA business.
Quit that remote job you took with set times you have to do things (Ew, David) and swear off all pyramid-scheme-y side hustles with marketing tactics that feel icky.
Leverage your existing skillset to create a business you’re PROUD to tell your sister-in-law about at family cookouts.
Get paid GREAT money because you learned how to deliver quality work. And feel relieved knowing you can generate more revenue anytime you want.
Marvel at your waitlist! Aka the line of clients, dying to work with you.
Set your schedule so you can be a boss AND a mom/wife/sister/human-being with hobbies. There’s gotta be something left for you at the end of the day!
YES THIS IS POSSIBLE. AND IN 6 WEEKS, THE “OMG, IS THIS REAL LIFEEEE?!” STUFF WILL ALREADY HAVE STARTED.
No extra certifications necessary. No need to build an empire tomorrow. Just the 10 seconds of courage it takes to suspend the self-doubt so when your kiddos look at you 2 months from now, they see a Boss Mama who STILL has time for play-doh.
If this sounds more like what you’re lookin’ for, we should meet.
Hi, I’m Sara!
And I walk my talk.
I’VE BUILT MY BUSINESS FROM THE GROUND UP… TWICE.
That might sound strange, but hear me out. This story has a happy ending for both of us!
One tear-filled day, I took charge of what I wanted my career and life to look like.
I was over the corporate grind and 24/7 emails. Mostly, I was over the anxiety of NOT being present in my baby son’s life.
I started my Virtual Assisting business so I could live life on MY terms. So that I could be with my son full-time and replace my corporate income working from home, 25 hrs or less a week.
When I first opened up my VA doors, the business grew FAST. Within months, I had a team of 8 VAs underneath me and the $10k++++ months everyone daydreams about. Wanna know what else I had?
Lots of trips to the therapist’s office, almost daily anxiety attacks, and a whole lotta working until 2AM. That present mama I had dreams of becoming? She was a distant memory.
You see, way too much people-pleasing in my newly created business had accidentally created a carbon copy of the corporate career I so desperately ran away from just months earlier.
Before I knew it, I was burnt out, overwhelmed, overworked, and wondering why I ever became an entrepreneur to begin with.
That’s when I lit a proverbial match.
I LET MY BUSINESS BURN BACK DOWN TO EMBERS. THEN GOT BACK TO BUILDING… BUT THIS TIME, WITH BALANCE.
I finally figured out what it took to create a truly thriving Virtual Assistant biz of my own… one that finally allowed me to be a dedicated mom to my little one, a loving wife to my man, and a nurturing friend to myself.
I tested my new thriving-biz-method for 2 years before I ever created my 6 week system to help Virtual Assistants build profitable and balanced businesses in weeks instead of years.
I’ve now helped clients get to consistent $2k, $5k and even $25k+ months.
I cracked the code on how to make great money while working 20-25 hours per week from home and creating loads of time for myself, my family and my health. Let me help you do the same.
THIS IS NOT:
… a one-size-fits all approach to building a VA biz that’s a carbon copy of whoever created it
… you being a single anonymous soul in a group of thousands who never gets coached by me, personally or our Support Coach, Erin
…a framework that requires you to build a team to hit financial milestones
And this is not you charging ahead at 40 hr+ work weeks, so you can burn out YET AGAIN.
This is a comfortably-paced, yet highly actionable approach to building a Virtual Assistant business that fits perfectly to YOUR preferences, YOUR boundaries and YOUR dream life. This is the same foundation that took me from $0 to $100k as a VA in 16 months.
AND IT ONLY TAKES 6 WEEKS TO GET YOUR START.
I was 3 months postpartum with my 2nd baby and so burned out from working as a nurse the last 10 years, I was dreading the idea of working my MLM gig in order to make somewhat of an income from home.
As someone who was a big newbie to the online workspace and virtual assisting world, I learned so much and never felt silly asking what I thought was a dumb question. The lead sharing part of Sara’s program is so valuable… I made my investment back within the first month of finishing the program. I have never had to market myself whatsoever outside of Sara’s referral system and even landed my first client before the end of The Start.
I am now fully booked in less than 2 months after being sent my first lead and have created a stable & dependable monthly income!
If you’re reading this and on the fence about it – just do it! Being successful in this is totally attainable if you show up, complete the lessons/worksheets and are motivated to get out of the box you’re currently in. There is a huge market for VA’s with the way the online space is growing… I even had to turn down 2 people in person during casual conversation when they asked what I do for work!
I’m seriously obsessed with this new work-life balance I have achieved with the help of Sara & Erin – I WILL NEVER clock in under someone else ever again or have to work on a holiday because my time off request got denied! Oh and did I mention my most recent client is paying me the same hourly wage I made as a nurse?! How cool is that?!
The Start is exactly that, a great start to a made for you career. You learn how to set yourself up for continual growth and the only thing in your way is YOU! The investment seems so great when you’re nervous about results, but I made back my investment twofold after just two months! The program was so easy to follow and fit into my busy schedule.
From NOTHING to THRIVING! I started as a very scared 9 to 5er nervous about the unknown and now I can actually say, I. AM. A. VA! I started receiving client leads as early as week 3!
By week 5, and only after my 2nd Discovery Call, I had a signed (PAID) client! By the end of that week, I had my 2nd client!
They are both dream clients that I never would have met without The Start. The program gave me such confidence and Sara gave me the encouragement I needed to keep pushing forward and not selling myself short!
I love how The Start provided guidance around setting up the foundations for a VA business and having leads come in after week 3. I also liked that I was able to get homework feedback from Support Coach Erin.
Since starting and completing the program, I’ve booked 3 discovery calls and secured 2 new clients!
The Start is an amazing program no matter where you are in your business. I loved the worksheets! I printed all of them and used them for additional deep thought after the sessions. My confidence has grown significantly. I can see and feel the difference, but it’s also communicated to the clients because I’ve been booking more discovery calls recently.
Before beginning, I had clients and had a comfortable recurring revenue coming in, but in the past 6 weeks my business has transformed. I’ve been able to get in front of ideal clients, I’ve become more comfortable in posting on my own social media, and I have actually started posting more content.
I’ve also had 2 clients sign contracts that came from the matchmaking service and another call me back yesterday to move forward. These 3 clients alone added an extra $2500 monthly!!
When I first began The Start, I had no clients and was unsure how to start my business, but the program really helped me increase my confidence in my business. I especially loved the group coaching calls and leads through Sara’s matchmaking service.
During the program, I was able to book 2 discovery calls that converted to 2 paying clients! Within my first month of business I was able to bring on two additional paying clients.
The knowledge that I received as part of this course is invaluable!
The weekly lessons for The Start were easy to follow and so many resources were provided. I think the cost for the value was a steal! I loved the group coaching calls even though I couldn’t attend live. I even signed a client before the course was finished, and still have leads rolling in!
The program gave me the confidence to actually start my own business, encouragement to know I wasn’t alone and other people are doing this.
I could continue to sit on the sidelines or take action to make this business a reality, and The Start gave me the actionable plan that I needed.
I love that the content of The Start was easy to digest and the videos were concise and engaging. I also love that the Matchmaking Bonus is included in the course!
The Start helped me figure out the best pricing structure for my services and it has given me the added confidence to do what I love. In 3 weeks, I landed one dream client and had a proposal sent to another!
After completing the program, I feel like I have some tangible steps to move my business forward.
I loved the style and pace of The Start. It was a fast six week course, but the content was in small consumable bites. It was easy to set aside the time to work through the course and still have time to do the homework – keeping me on track through the six weeks. Sara really helps you feel good about where you are and making this work for you.
By week four of the program, I had already booked my first discovery call and by week six, I had booked two more.
By the end, I felt like I had so much information and I could confidently talk to potential clients, sign them, and manage my business. That was key for me. Making this business work for me and not creating a similar business environment to my 9-5.
AN EXPERTLY CRAFTED COURSE-MEETS-GROUP-PROGRAM DESIGNED TO TAKE YOU FROM 0 TO
FULLY-FUNCTIONING VIRTUAL ASSISTANT IN 6 WEEKS FLAT.
I’ve compressed all of the knowledge I’ve gained over 5 years both running my own 6-figure VA biz AND coaching women in their own virtual businesses. THE START is easily an entire year’s worth of business coaching for soon-to-be-VAs who…
- Are toying with the idea of becoming a VA but have no idea where to start
- Have already started their VA business, but honestly it could be going better
- Think they need to wait for some unicorn moment when they’ll feel more confident to give their dreams a shot (if that existed, Nike’s copywriter would be out of a job! #justdoit)
- Are tired of struggling to make decent money online
- Are ready to take a crack at this whole “work-from-anywhere dream life thing” by running the BEST type of online business there is
- Know they wanna ditch the network marketing world for good
THE BEST PART? THE START CAN BE COMPLETED IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES A DAY AND WILL LEAVE YOU WITH CASH AND CLIENTS. AND A BUSINESS YOU CAN GROW FOR THE LONG-TERM. YOU’LL EVEN GET LIFETIME ACCESS AND ANY NEW BONUSES ADDED IN THE YEARS TO COME. CAN I GET AN AMEN?!
Here’s what your next 6 weeks
look like inside THE START
Avoid Future Burnout with a Rock-Solid Biz Foundation
The biggest reason most new entrepreneurs work around the clock is because they didn’t set the proper foundation. In week 1, you’ll…
- Identify your core, foundational why so that you end up with a business that supports the life you desire (instead of one that runs you!)
- Decide which superpowers you ALREADY have that you can start getting paid for (hint: these will seriously set you apart from all your business competition)
- Create a clear, compelling, catchy bio so that it’s silly easy for potential clients to make a connection with you before you ever talk to them
- Use a SO THAT statement to tell potential clients who you are, who you serve and what result you help those people achieve (because it’s all about results, baby!)
- Learn how to name your business so that it both stands the test of time AND feels like your professional home
Uncover Your Offerings Even if You Think You Have None
Now that you’re catching the eyes of your first potential clients, here’s where you’ll nail down what you’re gonna get paid for. In week 2, you’ll…
- Learn the right and wrong way to approach niches (hint: this is HUGE and something most VAs get so wrong)
- Figure out exactly what offerings the marketplace is looking for right now so that when you officially open up (or re-open up) shop, you’re a perfect match for paying clients
- Know exactly how to use the skills you ALREADY have to leverage them in your Virtual Assistant business right now
- Set your virtual business offers that are in alignment with your skills and what business owners are looking for
- Understand the key to making your offerings work for you so that you end up doing work you love (instead of creating another corporate cubicle lifestyle where you do work you loathe)
- Join our first LIVE group coaching call where you’ll get customized support around creating your VA business your way. I’ll be pushing you towards getting those results ASAP!
Nail Down Your Pricing & Packages So You Can Start Getting Paid
After setting up your brand spankin’ new offers, here’s where you’ll nix all the pricing confusion. In week 3, you’ll…
- Learn what rate you can command as an entry, mid and high level VA in the online marketplace
- Understand the different pricing models you can adopt in your business (and which one I recommend 90% of the time to my clients because it nets them the most revenue!)
- Set revenue goals in your business, with steps to smash them every time
- Nail down your prices and decide on some packages!
- Put together your first Services One Page (a beautifully designed PDF document you can use to attract clients INSTEAD of a website. Phew right??)
- Get leads!! Yup, at the end of Week 3 you’ll get leads sent directly to your inbox. I’ve already shared over 289 leads with the women in my program. And that river isn’t running dry anytime soon!
Implement! Rest! And Join Our 2nd Live Group Coaching Call
Now that your offers are out in the world, here’s where you’ll take a break and get caught up! In week 4, you’ll…
- Give yourself the space to work through any stuck points
- Catch up on any missed trainings (don’t stress – it happens and we make space for it!)
- Buckle up for all of the amazing trainings to come around social media and sales calls
- Join our second LIVE group coaching call where you’ll get customized support around creating your VA business your way, pushing you towards getting those results ASAP!
Get Visible with Your Easy-To-Do Marketing Plan
Now that you have a solid handle on your new Virtual Assistant biz, here’s where you get visible so people can actually hire you! In week 5, you’ll…
- Pick the right social platforms to get you in front of your ideal audience (and give you the best shot at signing clients)
- Plan and write YOUR social content the right way so it’s clear to your potential clients
- Creating a sustainable social marketing strategy (and system) that works, without leaving you burnt out on the content marketing hamster wheel
- Look like a pro online (+ learn a rookie mistake that some VAs make so you don’t do it!)
- Add additional social platforms to your marketing strategy for max results, when you’re ready (I’ll let you know!)
Sell Your Services Without Selling Your Soul
At this point, you’ll likely have your first discovery call in the books!! Here’s where you’ll start converting them into paying clients while expanding your network even more. In week 6, you’ll…
- Leverage your existing personal and professional network so you can sign more clients
- Respond to #jobopps posted on social media (correctly!) so you can actually land the client
- Learn how to sell on social media without being sleazy
- Start managing all of your leads so nobody falls through the cracks
- Understand “buying cues” so you know who your leads really are (hint: you have more people ready to work with you than you realize)
- Convert potential clients into paying clients using my discovery calls process (and have a killer follow-up process for if they don’t say yes on the call)
- Join our third LIVE group coaching call where you’ll get even more customized support around creating your VA business your way before we lovingly send you out in the world to spread your wingsssss and flyyyyyy, baby!
“I WENT FROM FEELING
OVERWHELMED TO MOTIVATED.”
During THE START, I went from feeling overwhelmed to motivated. Sara really helped me get clarity on my purpose as a VA, and what I wanted to do with my business. I learned that it is possible to live and stick to boundaries that help me enjoy my job everyday. I loved the encouragement and would absolutely recommend The Start.”

Meet Support Coach Erin!
In 2021, I teamed up with good friend and VA/OBM business owner Erin Leslie.
Over the last 4 years, she’s booked out her word-of-mouth Virtual Assisting biz without a website or social media. And she did it all using THE START framework.
Which is why, you’ll get coaching calls and exclusive hotseat time with her.
Plus, she’s the lifeline for students to email those “Halppp! I’m a bucket-o-nerves, what do I do?” questions that naturally pop-up anytime you’re creating a business.
Yep, she’ll hit reply within 72 hours to answer your SOS.
You’ll get the chance to submit your homework to Erin via THE START course hub at the end of every week for feedback (she gets into the nitty-gritty with you).
Leads Sent to
EYEING THOSE STATS UP THERE, WONDERING “WHAT ARE LEADS SENT TO STUDENTS ABOUT??” WELL, IT’S EXACTLY THAT!
When you’re a student in THE START, I add you to my referral list. Aka, I turn to YOU anytime my extensive network says “Sara, I need a great VA!”
AND THAT HAPPENS MULTIPLE TIMES EVERY. SINGLE. WEEK.
Join the Waitlist!
The next cohort begins Summer 2023
THAT SOON-TO-BE SUCCESS STORIES ALWAYS ASK BEFORE THEY DECIDE THEY’RE DEF IN.
CAN I TAKE THIS COURSE IF I DON’T CALL MYSELF A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT?
You bet your bippy! Online Business Managers, Social Media Managers, Project Managers, Launch Managers, Podcast Managers and every other done-for-you service provider will learn SO MUCH in THE START.
The program is designed to give you everything you need to build the solid foundations needed to create a profitable and balanced service based business.
How is a VA business different from an MLM?
Welp, for starters you’re NOT selling a closet of low-ticket products, squirm-texting girlfriends to host parties, or launching your own Facebook group before you make even a dime.
This is a real online business where you set your own prices, make your own hours, and package your services so your business is designed with your needs and lifestyle in mind.
The turnover is lowww, which means you don’t have to constantly be on the lookout for your next client. And growth-minded businesses only want to increase support from a VA as they scale, woop-woop!
OH and there’s no need to leave the house (like ever).
I’ve started and stopped so many side hustles and never followed through. How will I know this time will be different?
I can give you the names of 50 students who can all list 21 things they started and stopped, before they found the thing that stuck. I bet, deep down, you knew none of those things were “your thing.”
But they gave you dang good practice. And prepared you for what’s about to come next.
And with what’s coming next, you’ll actually have an easy-to-follow, proven system, and the support of a coach. Bet you didn’t have that last time, did ya?
Straight up, Sara, I’m scared….
And to that I say, of course you are! I’d be shocked if you weren’t a teeny bit, my love. Any time you move out of your comfort zone of what is familiar…
those uncomfortable feelings rise up (good!).
This is proof you’re already moving away from that work-sitch you’re so desperately trying to escape from.
So remember, I take you one step at a time, lit-er-ally one day at a time. Until you’re firing up your laptop in 6 weeks sipping your oatmilk latte at the kitchen counter beginning your day at noon, if you choose.
NO, BUT FOR REAL. I’VE EVEN SIGNED UP FOR COURSES LIKE THIS, THEN LIFE GOT IN THE WAY, SO I NEVER FINISHED THEM.
Which is why the time commitment from you is less than 30 minutes a day.
I literally don’t know of another program that has such a tiny time commitment, and can still turn your career around within such a fast time frame. But truthfully? If you can’t commit 30 minutes a day, this business might not be the right fit. But what else would be? Seriously — give me all you’ve got in those 30 minutes and things will shift FAST.
CAN I TAKE THIS COURSE IF I’VE ALREADY STARTED MY BUSINESS?
Abso-freaking-lutley. If you’ve started your business but don’t feel 100% solid in your foundation, this is the program for you. Whether you’re a baby newbie or you’ve been in the online biz game for a hot minute, this program will give you a rock solid foundation so that you can grow your business from a place of success, profitability and balance (because isn’t that the point?).
Is it true? I need to become a coach, start my own program or hire a team to be successful?
RED FLAG! Oh, heavens NO.
And run far, far away from anyone who tells you that you must do this to see a steady stream of clients, cash, and time freedom in your Virtual Assisting business.
No, you don’t need to run Facebook ads either.
Sure, if you want those things in the future, that’s an option. But don’t let bro marketing make this harder than it needs to be while stealing more of your hard-earned dollars on stuff you don’t need.
WILL I REALLY GET CONSISTENT CLIENTS AND INCOME FROM THIS?
Yup! Here’s the tea with Virtual Assisting. You…
- get booked out quicker (which means you’re profitable sooner)
- stay booked out longer because turnover is wayyyy less than other business models
And when you combine those two things, you get a business that’s wildly sustainable long-term. Not to mention we LOVE to send leads to our students. Stick with me, I got you!
CAN’T I JUST GOOGLE HOW TO DO THIS?
You could! But if you’re frantically consuming every “5 Secrets To Some Blah Blah Blah About Virtual Assisting” article — there’s no way you can go from 0 to paying clients in just 6 weeks.
Also, the info you find in Google will be missing something: YOU.
In THE START, I specifically help you create the VA business you want to run (that takes into consideration your actual priorities). Not many systems will encourage you to put family and free time first like mine does.
Oh, and one small (ok big) problem with those other systems?
They’re missing a super important ingredient: ME!
You’ll get walked through and coached through all of this in a way that no other program is offering. It’s one thing to read someones’ content but to REALLY have a mentor? That’s priceless and the ticket to moving forward FAST.
I SEE OTHER PROGRAMS TEACHING IN-DEPTH VA SKILLS. WILL WE BE DOING THAT HERE?
I could have built the program that way, but what if you don’t want to just work with digital course creators? (which are the skills a lot of those other courses teach).
THE START is designed for you to make money now using whatcha already got. You have so many skills from your past experience that easily transfer into the VA world. Why not start getting paid for those right now, rather than spend your first 4 weeks, learning skills you’re not really interested in?
And honestly? We’ll actually teach you a bunch of new skills, platforms and technologies inside the program because we show you how to set them up for yourself. And once you know how to do it for yourself, well… now you have a new skill you can charge for!
BUT SARA... I WANTED A FACEBOOK GROUP INCLUDED IN THIS PROGRAM!
I hear you, but right now what you need is to get expert advice on starting your business ASAP the right way, not input from a bunch of other (well-intentioned but not totally knowledgeable) women who are at the same place as you are. That’s why we purposely DON’T include a Facebook group with THE START.
You don’t need more noise, more questions and more uncertainty (not to mention to be spending your precious time on ANYTHING other than building your mini-empire).
And we’re making it easy for you to put blinders on and get this business going yesterday.
WILL I GET 1:1 SUPPORT IN THE START?
Yep! We offer three (3) LIVE group coaching calls inside THE START. During your hot seat time, it’s all you baby boo.
People use their hot seat for everything from getting feedback on their list of services and hourly rate to getting support around the fear they have showing up online as a newbie. But no matter how they use it? They say it’s one of the most valuable parts of the program (and the gold NO other program like this offers).
Plus, you’ll have opportunities to win a BONUS 1:1 session with Support Coach Erin. That’s 45 minutes entirely focused on you, your new biz, and any confidence wobbles holding you back. Plus, during the program you’ll be able to submit your homework to Erin for review so you stay on track.
HOW DOES THE START WORK?
Each week you’ll receive a daily 5-10 minute video training where Sara will quickly break down every necessary step you NEED to take in your business to make it profitable and successful.
In addition to the daily video, you’ll get daily worksheets and resources designed to help you go from idea to reality, ASAP. There are also three (3) LIVE group coaching calls to help you work through your stuck points and keep your online business ball rolling straight to the top. You’ll also get access to client leads AND you’ll have opportunities to unlock new bonuses inside every module just by doing your coursework.
HOW LONG WILL I GET ACCESS TO THE MATERIALS IN THE START?
You have lifetime access to ALL the materials and coursework included inside The Start. That means when we make program updates and add new bonus materials, you get those too!
What if I can’t swing the payments right now?
I gotchu! To make this program even more accessible I’m offering 2 FREE THE START™ Scholarship spots each cohort.
Plus up to 5 folks will receive a partial scholarship to the program based on financial need.

Okay... but can I really do this?
We get it – it’s scary when you’re first starting out! That’s why we pour SO much into our students during this program – having that extra support makes all the difference. Creating the work-from-home business of your dreams is way more possible than you think… but don’t just take my word for it.

“I’M BOOKED OUT, ONLY WORKING 10 HOURS A WEEK.”
After doing The Start I had all the foundations I needed to build a business that suited my life. Sara’s lessons were GOLD to me, they were short and sweet and packed with so much value.
Now after putting everything into practice, I’m booked out, only working 10 hours a week with super aligned clients!
I recommend The Start 100% with no doubt! It is life-changing.

THE START IS YOUR ANSWER TO CREATING A BUSINESS THAT HANGS OUT AT THE INTERSECTION OF “PROFIT” AND “BALANCE”
Want to set up a business that allows you to:
- Pick up your kids every day at 2pm?
- Go to pilates class three days a week?
- Have extra disposable income without needing to high tail it back to corporate?
- Take off for a mental health day, rando holiday, or 2 week long vacation?
- Only work with businesses whose missions make you rah-rah?
- Support whatever lifestyle you’re daydreaming about?
THE START IS WHERE YOU CREATE ALL THAT.
“THE START REALLY HELPED ME ALIGN WITH MY GOALS AND DREAMS.
Through the course, I became very clear on what I wanted and the type of people I want to work with, based on the type of employee and person that I am. It increased my knowledge in social media and sales, and also boosted my confidence going out there and talking to people and reaching out to potential clients. I felt pretty capable on my own, but The Start really helped me learn how to be capable in the right areas.
When I started the course, I only had one client. By week 4, I had signed another one. Now, in the final week, I have 4 total clients and am almost booked out! I was able to get off of unemployment, double my income, and get the perfect puppy coworker to help since I’m working full-time from home again. I also had my favorite journal company (BestSelf Co.) ask me to be an ambassador for their business to share my journey.”

STILL NOT SURE IF THE START IS
PERFECT FOR YOU?
You’re about to be a business owner’s secret weapon REAL soon if…
- You’re brand new to Virtual Assisting and you want to skip the entrepreneurial burnout by setting up the RIGHT foundation. No late nights, tinkering to figure sh*t out. You’ll take straightforward direction, delivered to you in 30 min chunks daily.
- You’ve already started your VA biz, but you’re STILL not seeing the glorious “rolling in money and time freedom” reality others talk about on insta. Instead, you’ve got inconsistent clients who steamroll your “I don’t work after 5pm” rule.
- You’re excited about the profit potential building a Virtual Assistant business affords you. And you’re extra excited knowing you’re following the exact steps I used to go from $0 to $100k during my first 16 months.
- Even if you recently felt tempted to believe you weren’t cut out for starting something on your own — you’re ready to forgive yourself for the temporary moment of disillusion. Especially now you see how most success stories had ZERO experience.
- You feel confident knowing you have 14 days to test it out. Either you do the work or you decide that after 1 coaching call and 2 weeks worth of videos, you don’t *actually* have the strategies to build your biz from the ground up. So you show us your work, and request we hit undo on this whole dream of yours. And while that will bum me out — I always want what’s best for YOU. You’ll see that hands-down in this program.

Have To Say
This program will give you everything you need to get started as a Virtual Assistant ASAP.
During The Start, I became more confident in pitching myself because I felt like my business was real. Because of that, I booked a paying client while I was still in the program.
My plan was to use the tools I learned in the program to set myself up for success from the beginning and make this business my full-time career.
Within a month of finishing the program, I officially left my 9-5.
And now just 6 short months after beginning The Start I have a booked out roster of clients, just had my biggest month in business yet at $8K and have Discovery Calls still rolling in. I’m in the process of hiring my first intern to keep my business running while I’m on maternity leave.
I am so glad I decided to start my VA business with the support of The Start and 100% recommend it to everyone I know.
The Start helped me to build a foundation for my business but also helped me learn all the details along the way. I have a better understanding of what it takes to work and a plan to develop what I need to grow my business.
Thanks to The Start I have booked my first official VA role!
While in The Start program I realized that I was charging too low for my done for you services.
Sara provided templates for us to literally explore our reservoirs of skills, experience, and passions. With this information, I was able to formulate high-ticket service offerings that brought in ideal clients that had no problem paying top tier rates.
I can say without hesitation that Sara has a way of empowering you with both information and motivation. If you take The Start you’re literally handed the tools to have a successful done-for-you service, but often the mind-fog gets in the way of you actually succeeding or even executing. Sara (The Start) debunks the limiting myths that we so often tell ourselves and empowers us with tools to “see it” for ourselves. While I’m grateful for the content, I’m most grateful that I now have the absolute confidence that I can have a very successful done-for-you service that works for me completely.
The Start provided me the confidence I needed to build a strong foundation for my business.
I was able to create a bio that sounds confident, personal, and explains how I can assist a business owner with back-end support. I would definitely recommend The Start to others!
The Start truly helped lay the foundation for my business. I had already been in business for over a year, but The Start showed me all of the things I had skipped and needed to revisit. Sara feels like a true friend and her guidance was invaluable!!
Since participating in The Start, I have a streamlined onboarding process, a clear social media strategy, clarity on my service offerings, and a renewed sense of confidence in and passion for the business I am creating. I also have a new client signed from the matchmaking service!
Sara teaches that as long as we take action- even when it’s messy- we have the power to create the life and business of our dreams. My business is now a well oiled machine! I am no longer stumbling through but rather proceeding with full confidence! I LOVE Sara and this program. My business is forever changed!
I love how approachable The Start is. When going through the program, I didn’t feel overwhelmed, and the support is so obvious and genuine from the very beginning.
Since completing The Start, I’ve booked three new clients, and I’m in touch with several additional leads. I also feel like I have a solid base to grow my business from, even if I decide to make changes later on.
My Services One Sheet is so much better looking now than my first attempt at one too! I truly feel so much more confident and at ease about building my client roster and reaching my goals.
The Start gives you everything you need to confidently start your own virtual assistant business – the tools, the mindset, the documents. My favorite part is how the course is structured with all of the content being split into one different lesson each day over the entirety of the 6 week program.
After completing The Start, I have the confidence & know-how to build this business from the ground up and take it as far as I want it to go! I have a great social media account with a clear & actionable bio, a one sheeter for clients, a dubsado account set up, an asana account set up, a great new daily planner ready to roll.
I have a workflow, a legal contract, an invoicing method and several other documents in place AND I have had or are scheduled to have a total of 12 discovery calls in a two week time span!
I literally started my business because of The Start. I loved how easy it was to follow and to fit into my already busy day. Sara also allowed me to see that I can truly do this!! I have more years than I’d like to admit in marketing and event planning, but she helped me see how that translates to the online space.
Since completing The Start, I’ve already landed 2 clients and one of them just asked if she could send me a referral. Big win!!
I have also already made back my investment. This program was/is a game changer for me and I cannot wait to see where I go.
