“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”Annabel (VA)
Hi, I’m Sarah Rugg, co-owner of My VA Business.
I’m on a mission to help you to be a huge success. I’d like to help you realise your potential and achieve a super flexible and rewarding work life.
Whizzing back some 14 years, I was career-focused, in the corporate world, working 50+ hours per week, age 30-ish. I was mostly living off caffeine, stress and adrenaline. I spent my working days going from one meeting to the next and then doing the actual work outside of office hours. I didn’t plan for my life to be like that, but climbing that corporate ladder of “success” doesn’t come without sacrifices right?
Right! And that was manageable in my twenties.
But then I had my daughter Kate. Then my son Dan came along, and I knew something had to change. I’d returned to work. 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. My priorities had naturally changed. Life wasn’t just about work anymore!
I missed the kids, I hated having to pack them off to nursery but I needed to earn money. I set up my own VA business over 14 years ago and now have a team of around 20 Associate VAs and I love my working life…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.
“This isn’t a get rich quick scheme. It’s not something you can do overnight. But if you are serious, put in the effort and follow my complete step by step guide you like so many people I’ve helped can have a rewarding, flexible VA business delivering great returns”Sarah Rugg (COO)
What’s driven people to make the change and set up with us?
For some it was their circumstances…
☹️ Lack of time with family
☹️ No flexibility at work
☹️ Lost time spent commuting
☹️ Increasing demands from bosses
☹️ Issues with co-workers or office politics
☹️ Experiencing depression or anxiety
☹️ Worsening back problems
☹️ Changes in priority due to separation
☹️ Suffered a bereavement
Others were seeking…
🙂 More time to support family
🙂 Flexibility to work when they choose
🙂 Work that fits around their family
🙂 Home working
🙂 To be their own boss
🙂 Freedom to work their way
🙂 To achieve their full potential
🙂 Rewards for their extra efforts
🙂 To manage personal affairs without guilt
With FAB-VA you’re in control. It’s 100% your business.
You decide when to work and when not to. Whatever your reason for shaking up your working life…we know you’ll absolutely love it.
“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 (VA)

“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 (VA)

Escaping the Corporate World
Starting out as a VA I had huge concerns. Can I do it? Have I got the skills? Can I really run my own business? Will I end up back to the corporate world with my tail between my legs?
Up to then, I’d always had a regular salary and although it nearly broke me earning it every month, leaving was really going to take me outside my comfort zone. I didn’t feel I had the confidence to do that on my own.
Meet my Business Coaches
For many years now I’ve been coached by professional coaches Michelle and Anna. They’ve helped me achieve things I never thought possible.
Some of the photos on this page are taken during a dream holiday that I’d thought was totally out of reach. Michelle reminded me before I went ‘Remember when this was just a dream? When you get there, I want you to stand on that cliff top, give yourself a moment and reflect on what you’ve achieved.’
So I did. That was quite an emotional moment for me. Especially given the lack of confidence I’d felt in the early days.
Benefit from Michelle and Anna’s Coaching
I can’t bear to see people who would clearly make an amazing VA, but their lack of confidence holds them back from that dream.
When I developed this programme, I knew if I could get Michelle and Anna on board it would make FAB-VA the complete VA business package. It would be another thing to set our programme apart from others out there. So I was delighted when they agreed to be part of it.
The FAB-VA programme includes their full video guided Confidence Course – BOOST – to support the success of your VA journey.
“My VA Hub literally answers everything, all of the answers are in there…the ‘Boost’ videos are really helpful as well”Kylie (VA)

❓ How will I get clients?

❓ Will I be able to manage the financial side of running my own VA business?
We’ve made this side of things as simple as possible. Having Chartered Accountant Noel as co-owner, his financial advice in the programme is invaluable.
❓ Is this only for PAs or is it available to other people?
We do get lots of EAs and PAs signing up for our programmes but we also get people with other skillsets who make great Virtual Assistants too. I personally came from corporate and I’d never officially been a PA, but I was competent at general admin, organised and had an eager attitude.
❓ How quickly can I complete the programme?
Because this programme is fully flexible, you can pick it up and make progress in the spare time you have or you can go full pelt and complete it much quicker. The speed is entirely governed by you and how much time you dedicate to it but many people can be set-up and ready to take on clients within a few months.
❓ Do I loose access to all of the content if I don’t set up within a certain timeframe, say 12 months?
No. You can take as long as you need and course access remains open as long as you need it so you can always refer back or revisit information for guidance in the future.
❓ Where is the programme held and how do I access it?
It’s held on our learning platform called “The Hub’. Once you’ve bought the course you will receive full access instantly. You’ll see a welcome video from me and then you can work through all the learning material in order. The step by step format is so simple and well organised so that you don’t miss anything. You’ll have a unique username and password to log-in and every time you do, you simply pick up from where you left off last time. Simple.
❓ Can I buy this programme if I live outside of the UK?
My program is generally designed for people working as VA in the UK as part of the marketing covers local face-to-face networking and the legal agreements are for UK law. However, there is plenty of other content you could take and use if working from another country.
“The ‘Boost Programme’ gave me a completely new sense of self-esteem and confidence in my ability to do this”Martin (VA)

HERE’S WHAT SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS HAD TO SAY ABOUT OUR PROGRAMMES…
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.
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 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 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

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

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:

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
