We’ve helped many people get started as VA’s
But don’t just take our word for it…
Testimonial – Annabel
On starting out:
I have been on hold up until now because I have been so overwhelmed with everything that is out there, I just didn’t know where to start. I have only scratched the surface at what I have looked at in the ‘box’, but it’s been worth every penny already. I also get a sense that I belong to a community, your team have been great, and I can’t wait to get started.
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 having access to an expert
Something which I hadn’t really thought that I would need was emotional support really, so when I call to speak to Sarah it is speaking to somebody who has done it before and who knows, who has been there, done that and just knows what can go wrong, has got the answers and can help and answer your questions and help you move forward and get you back on your feet.

On making a great choice:
I was dubious at first when I came across Vi-Va and the business in a box, but I can honestly say that I have been massively impressed with all aspects of the package so far. The 21-day foundation stage is easily doable within the timeframe and the amount of support not just from Sarah but also from Noel and the website team has been incredibly helpful.
On feeling prepared for success:
My feelings as I am reaching the end of the setup phase are that I would never have been as prepared starting up my own business as I feel right now and I love the logos and headers that have been created for me. I feel I now have the best possible chance of making my new business a success.
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 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. The brand and logo designing service is great, having all of the images resized and clearly labelled so that you can easily upload them to whichever site you need to is really helpful and saves so much time.
On the support
Sarah has given a lot of her time answering queries and never makes you feel like anything you ask is silly or pointless. The whole team at My VA Business are very enthusiastic which helps to boost your confidence when you come up with suggestions or ideas.
On the value for money
I think the package has been great value for money, after all, it is very difficult to put a price on the advice of someone who has been through the exact same situation as you are in and successfully come out of the other side and I would recommend My VA Business to others looking to set up their own Virtual Assistant business.

The FAB VA course materials are comprehensive and clear. They provide an insight into VA know how, professional requirements and best practice, for success. Sarah really understands the industry. The FAB VA course empowers students to both launch and establish their own VA business, with professional confidence, skill and awareness.Natalie
On the FAB-VA programme
I was highly impressed with the layout and clarity of the course, and Sarah’s huge fountain of knowledge.Anne-Marie
On the time saved
Thank you for the invaluable info. Saved me hours of looking it all up (in response to HMRC advice received).
On looking forward to a great future:
It has been a wonderful thing for me to find something that I can actually do and something I can see has a future for me, potentially one that will go well past retirement age for me.
On our Confidence Boost Programme:
The ‘Boost’ in particularly for me just gave me a completely new sense of self-esteem and confidence in my ability to do this. Martin
On her first big success
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the team behind the scenes. It has been a rollercoaster from time to time but finally getting there.
I secured my first client this week!!!
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, I didn’t realise the legality of it and what you had to do, having you as a back-up has helped with those guidelines.
On the need to get proper support:
There is tech help behind the scenes, there is help in all directions and you have got the 21-step plan which you can take at a pace which is suitable to you, but you need the back up, you really do. Linda
On starting out
“Thanks for this and WOW !! Just had a very quick read through the Start pack and absolutely love it !! Please tell Sarah & Rob that I am so made up I decided to purchase this and start my business with the support of great mentors! Love IT :)” Carole Johnson - VA
Totally supported the whole way along. Just literally following the program has been great. Everybody has been so supportive, no question is too small or too big, there is always a very timely answer and if they don’t necessarily know the answer straight away they will go away and come back to me, so it has been really great…. I can’t fault anybody, everybody has been really supportive.
The super coach calls with Sarah are extremely useful. You can ask questions whilst the call is live or message her separately. Should you be unable to join the session, they are recorded to enable you to catch up when the time suits. Sarah is extremely helpful and it’s a great way to learn valuable tips on setting up your own VA company. I would highly recommend this programme. Alison - VA
Love the SuperCoach 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- VA
They are extremely informative and break the course down into bite size manageable chunks. I leave the call feeling positive and ready to move my business onto the next step. Sarah is always available to answer my queries and happily shares her own experiences, good or bad! Ali. F - VA
It’s reassuring to know I can watch the SuperCoach videos when it suits me as I can’t make the live event times. I can also focus on the bits that are most relevant to me and re listen to those as many times as I need. Lucy M - VA
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. Since properly starting in May last year (after going through the programme), I have 4 clients who have been continually working with me every month, and I now have a 5th starting in Feb. When I had first started, I wasn’t sure that I would be able to get 1 client, so this is a huge accomplishment for me.
On signing up
Thank you; This has confirm to me that this is a positive move towards a change to my working life; the process so far has been really smooth, and has given me the confidence to ‘get on with it’.Emma Baker
On her brand new website
Thank you for this. I have looked at my website and think it looks brilliant. Please thank the Web developer for me. I look forward to the site being live and being able to share it with everyone.
On finding flexible work:
I am a mum of two, I work in a school and I found that the job had become more and more….I decided I needed to find a more flexible job, you popped up on my news-feed on Facebook and I thought this is something I can do.
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…The advice is worth the money for the business in a box.” Kylie
On the cause closest to our heart
Working with My VA Business really is a no brainer – great support to get started and I love that you’re supporting a charity so close to your heart. Emma
On expanding her team already
I got that big contract!! So.. I have been thinking that I really need to start working with a VA, so I would like to book a meeting with you next week to discuss the hows/what’s/hows of ‘hiring’ a VA!
On the real value of the support received:
I think that the support that Sarah and her team have offered has been fantastic. I don’t know if I would be as far along with my business as I am now, the fact that I have my website, I have got my terms and conditions, I have got clients on board, I have got spreadsheets in place, I think it would have taken me a lot longer….this just takes the edge off, it takes a massive edge off and allows you to structure your time and your energy… that alone is worth the money in gold!
On the My VA Business 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 - VA
You’ve been with me right from the beginning, I owe you and the team all my gratitude…you’ve been there with every step and you are all brilliant!
To a new member in the private Facebook group:
You’ve made an excellent choice. Viva doesn’t just sell you the best package to base your business on, they look after you too. A really lovely bunch of people. You’ll not regret your decision! Margo - VA
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 - VA
