​30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success – Review of Gina’s VA Course — 9 Comments

  1. Stay away from Gina and the Horkey Handbook – NOT a value based training. You are given the modules and left on you own to figure everything out. + you have to pay her $97 a quarter for the privilege of belonging to her facebook group.

    Do your research as there are better options out there

    • Hi AJ,

      Thank you for your comment. As a VA and graduate of this course myself, I am a little baffled by your feedback; I personally found that Gina’s step-by-step framework sets a very detailed, clear path to follow. I am a long-time member of the paid Facebook group and I find it is well worth the price of admissions – not just for the client leads (of which you would just need to land one long-term client and you’d more than cover the price of admission) but for the office hours support, helpful interviews, and community.

  2. I liked the article and clicked on the URL for the free Jump Start Virtual Assistant course, but it takes me to a website to purchase templates:

    Do you know if the course is still available? Is this where you take the course?

    • Hello Erin,

      I’m really sorry about that. The offers and links were recently changed and I hadn’t updated this post yet.
      Gina now offers a free list of 150 different VA services to give an idea of the scope and possibilities of this career. The previous free email course has been enhanced and reformatted into a workbook which you will get more details about when you receive the free list of VA services.

      Hope this is still helpful for you in some way,

  3. Great article! I am interested in taking the course and becoming a VA. Is this a course/viable option for part time income that you still recommend. Thanks

    • Yes, Nate, you can make a part-time (or full-time if you want) income as a VA. It all depends on how much time you spend doing it, how many clients you take on and so on. Gina teaches the ins and outs of all this in the course. If you haven’t already, I would suggest you take Gina’s free Jumpstart course to get an idea if being a VA is right for you.

      Hope this helps!

  4. I really enjoyed reading your post on what sounds like a great work-from-home opportunity. I really like that you included a free training program, then gave the pro’s and con’s of that program. You also did a great job of breaking down and reviewing the paid training option. It is great to have a personal review.

    I was wondering though – do you know anyone who has actually done it and is making a career out of it?

    • Glad you liked it, Rachael. I think the pros and cons really give a picture of what you can expect to get out of it – I’m always particular to have them in my reviews.

      Actually I know a couple of people who have taken the course – both stay-at-home moms. So it isn’t full time work for them, but it is a real career that adds a steady amount to their monthly income.
