The ultimate step by step programme proven to build a successful VA business
I’m Sarah Rugg, co-owner of My VA Business.
I’m on a mission to help you realise your potential and achieve a super flexible and rewarding work life giving you the opportunity to work from home on your terms.
Over 14 years ago I decided to set up as a Virtual Assistant and be my own boss. I made every mistake in the book on this journey and learnt the hard way. I now fast track others to VA success by teaching them what works and what doesn’t. I still run my VA business today (which has grown to a team of 20).
I LOVE the flexibility and balance I have…And this is where I can help you!
I’ve helped countless mums (and some dads) to achieve the flexible and fulfilling work life they craved.
I have developed 2 great programmes to meet most budgets and still give complete step-by-step guidance to building your own successful VA business whilst enjoying the benefits of working from home.
HERE’S SOME FREE VA TRAINING ON US
I’ve created a 1 hour online training session to help you decide if becoming a work from home VA is the right step for you. I’ll also give you essential tips and guidance to help you become a great Virtual Assistant.

Why I want to help you…
It was back in 2005 and I remember sitting in my kitchen with my head in my hands thinking, why is this so hard. I’ve got a wonderful family, lovely house and car but I’m not enjoying any of it because there are so many demands on my time.
I thought, that’s it… enough’s enough! It was at that moment that I decided to follow my dream and set up as Virtual Assistant.
Then about 5 years ago, people started to approach me to ask if I would help them to do the same – set up their own VA business and make a success of it. They asked for advice… which tools to use, how to get clients, and so on. To my initial surprise, from my decade of experience, I was able to give them what they needed. I became an unofficial mentor for many of them, and loved every minute!
I was helping people to leave the ‘Rat Race’ and set up their own VA business, working flexibly from home, freeing up precious family time and making a decent income where they were the boss. I was in my element.
I really connected with the people I helped – and they said the same. We wanted the same thing. We’d reached a stage in our lives where we wanted more control over our destiny. We didn’t want to answer to a boss and feel guilty if our child was ill. And family time was becoming increasingly important.
So I decided to make a living out of helping people set up successful VA businesses, and that’s how My VA business came about.
And I have some great news for you. If you have the right mix of skills and a ‘can-do’ attitude, you can build a successful VA business that’s 100% yours, run the way you want, working the hours you choose.

Here’s what some of our customers had to say…
On the flexibility of training while still working
I didn’t have the confidence to just jump away from my job and into something that was completely unknown, so I wanted to do something that was going to give me flexibility and let me do it alongside my current job until I saw that it was something that was going to work for me and that I could make happen and that I could then jump and make the transition when I was ready. You can do it in your own time, it gives you the flexibility, but it teaches you everything that you need to know as well.Katrin
On the Learning Platform:
I have found it to be jammed with information. So much more than I would have done alone. It is a super guide to getting started especially if you are feeling a little hesitant. It covers everything you need to know.Mary
On the videos:
They are extremely informative and break the course down into bite size manageable chunks.Ali F
Now she’s established
Honestly the best money you will ever spend …this has changed my life. I’m now able to work from home on a much better salary than before and fit it around the children – Sarah Rugg, is one of life’s inspirational people!Annabel
On the legal aspects of starting a business
What you are offering gives a background to how complex it is to start your own business, it has been an eye opener. Having you as a back-up has really helped with those guidelines.Linda
On finding the answers you need
My VA Hub literally answers everything, all of the answers are in there….the ‘Boost’ videos are really helpful as well.Kylie
On the videos:
The videos are incredibly helpful as they are essential to me too for keeping on track with the programme. It’s unbelievably helpful to have context along with the information on The Hub, to have points elaborated on.Hazel B
On the resources
All of the scary parts of setting up my own VA business have been taken care of; the legal templates, terms and conditions and guidance with regards to insurance policies have been so useful.Rachel
On Changing Lives:
I just wanted to say a massive Thank You for all that you have done for me with My VA business. You won’t know this, but this business has literally changed mine and my family’s life. My business is steadily growing thanks to all the help and support that you guys have given to me.Jacinta
On the Video Guided Support:
Love the videos. Really engaging & help keep me on track. Also find them really useful to get a quick overview which makes each section feel more manageable.Marie
On our Confidence Boost Programme:
The ‘Boost Programme’ gave me a completely new sense of self-esteem and confidence in my ability to do this.Martin
On the Whole Programme:
Totally supported the whole way along. Just literally following the program has been great.Alison
On the Members Facebook Community
There is a community there, we all help each other out, as that community is growing it is great because there are people posting questions that either I have thought of or maybe thought I can’t ask that question and then someone else asks it. You don’t feel alone you feel supported and we are all in the same boat, I think that is the great thing….. it is the personal support that I have really enjoyed and not feeling alone in it.Sarah
We’d love to hear from you!
