    Craig & Tiffany!

    THANK YOU for sharing your story Tiffany, and thank you, Craig, for sharing with the rest of us. I have been a long time admin, and currently working in customer service for the past several years. I am sort of where Tiffany was, where I knew my stuff….as an admin….but moving into the VA arena, I was having trouble visualizing how my work/life experience would translate. This video has given me the confidence to jump in and immerse myself! I am trying very hard to make the May session happen!

      Thanks for sharing your story Deb! It sounds like the timing is right for you to transition to the VA field. We would love to have you apart of our community but don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions!


    Hi Deb, Thanks for sharing your story. Yes, one step at a time. I have to say the classes at VA Classroom and the support from the group have helped me immensely and have given me the confidence to grow in my business. This is a group of serious professional VAs here. Craig, his wife and the other VA mentors have been in the industry for a while and they provide solid advice and support. Going full-time and working from home, is a transition and I look at the VA Classroom and the group as like my office headquarters. 🙂 Good luck to you and hope to see you and connect with you in the group when you join.

    Hi Tiffany

    Thanks for sharing your story. I also started my VA journey in full time work and have now transitioned to a successful VA business. It just shows that with hard work and the right mindset it can be done.
