Supporting you to make the seamless transition from employment into your own successful Virtual Assistant business, working from home!

Hi. 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.

Before I started my own VA business I was working 50+ hours per week in the corporate world. That was manageable in my twenties.

But then I had my two lovely kids and I knew something had to change. I’d returned to work part time and I was treated differently. I wasn’t able to put in the extra hours and in all honesty my heart just wasn’t in it. Life wasn’t just about work anymore!

So 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.

With my new FAB-VA programme I can help you to do the same.

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.



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.



On the videos:

They are extremely informative and break the course down into bite size manageable chunks.

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!



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.




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.



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.



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.






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.



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.

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.



On the Whole Programme:

Totally supported the whole way along.  Just literally following the program has been great.



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.
