If you resonate with any of the above, don’t stress. You’re definitely not alone!


Most of the women we are helping come from traditional employment where they’re working up to 60 hours per week, struggling to find time to see their families, and with next to no work-life balance.  While they loved what they did, they were fed up with putting in so much effort to line the pockets of their employer.  They wanted more choice and flexibility, but it was next to impossible to achieve.


Some had even heard about Virtual Assistants but had shelved the idea because they realised that until they found the support and courage to break free and venture out on their own, they would always be trapped in the ‘slow lane’… working hard for someone else.

Well guess what? It doesn’t have to stay this way.

There is a way out.

Since starting VA Institute in 2017, we’ve helped over 700 women break free of their demanding corporate ‘shackles’ and become their own boss by setting up their own Virtual Assistant (VA) business.

Check out some of the stories below of other women who we’re working with right now.

Real women, real stories… all of them were unsure about how to get started, but now have successful businesses, and a lifestyle that actually works.
