I KNOW YOU'RE BUSY.

I know you want to launch your business FAST and start making money for you and your family. The most difficult part of running your own Virtual Assistant is knowing how to START. 

Here’s the good news. 

I’ve successfully helped launch and grow Virtual Assistant businesses around the world, and I’ve developed my expertise into an easy-to-follow course.

ONLY A STEP-BY-STEP PLAN. AND A PROVEN METHOD THAT WORKS.

No more confusion about what you should do. 

No more frustration with researching for hours with no answers.

No more giving up and eating an entire plate of brownies in the corner by yourself in exhaustion.  

It’s the same method I used to launch my Virtual Assistant business and replace my income WHILE on maternity leave. It’s the method I used to have four subcontractors working under me so I could make money while I was out playing with my kids.

REAL STORIES FROM OUR STUDENTS

It’s the best feeling in the whole freaking world.

The community that started out as 1,000 aspiring VAs has grown to over 45,000 and every day I get to help people change their lives through starting Virtual Assistant businesses.  

  • I’ve helped working moms quit their 9-to-5’s to stay home with their kids.  
  • I’ve helped men and women start working while traveling the world.  
  • And I’ve seen HUNDREDS of students finally believe in themselves and know they have something powerful to offer.

The SavvySystem began in mid-2016 and now over 1800 students have used it to launch their own at-home business.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHEN DOES THE COURSE BEGIN AND END? 

The SavvySystem is self-paced, and you have lifetime access to the course! You can start now or this weekend. You can finish within the next month or so, or complete the modules over time as you grow your business. You may access the course 24/7/365.

WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT?

We recommend that you set aside AT LEAST 10 hours per week to work on your business. This works out to be about two hours per day, five days per week. This course will be the first step in starting your own business, and we recommend starting with at least one hour per day working through the modules and accompanying homework, in addition to working on your business. 

WILL I GET ONE ON ONE COACHING?

This is not a one-on-one coaching program. Honestly, we believe the best results are achieved when you are doing a program with others. The support of a group is JUST what you need when you are startng a business! An exclusive Facebook community group is a bonus with your SavvySystem purchase, and only SavvySystem students have access to it. Abbey and the rest of The Virtual Savvy team hang out in the group every single day and answer every question. You also receive unlimited email support and unlimited proposal reviews by The Virtual Savvy team. There is also a monthly group accountability call included as a bonus for the course.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BASIC AND ULTIMATE SAVVYSYSTEM?

The SavvySystem is The Virtual Savvy’s signature program that teaches YOU how to create and grow your own profitable Virtual Assistant business from scratch. The modules contain step-by-step instructions for creating a small business, including naming your business, choosing what services to offer, how to package and price your services, branding your business, how to set up a contract, how to invoice clients, paying quarterly taxes, and so much more!  

If you chose our ULTIMATE program, Lifetime Access to our SavvyVault Training lab will also be included. This is the premier place to acquire new creative and technical skills to expand your service offerings as a VA. Each month a new tech course is added. As long as you are a current member, you will receive access to all updates and courses. Click here to see all of our available courses.

ARE THERE ANY PREREQUISITES?

There are no prerequisites to become a Virtual Assistant - isn’t that fantastic news!? You can leverage your current background, education, experience, and skills to build the business of your dreams. Being a VA does, however, require you to be familiar with online processes. Things like sending/receiving email, researching through platforms like Google, understanding basic computer knowledge.  

WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?

I GUARANTEE the SavvySystem will WORK for your business. Yep. I am so convinced that you will LOVE the program that I'll give you your money back if you don’t. If you don’t see results you love within 30 days of purchase, we will give you a 100% refund. Click here to view our terms and conditions.

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

We accept all credit cards and debit cards. PayPal is available for full payments only (not available for monthly installment plans).

WILL THE SAVVYSYSTEM STILL WORK FOR ME IF I LIVE OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES? 

We have had several students who have taken the course who are not in the U.S. The course principles are designed to work no matter what country you live in. The only aspect of the course that will be different if you are outside of the U.S. will be the taxes section and legalities section.  

The contracts were created by attorneys licensed in the U.S. and they are based on U.S. law. While we do have several people who have used our contracts that do not live in the U.S., we recommend speaking with an attorney in [the country where the business is based] before using the templates to ensure that your rights are protected.  

We also advise all students to look into the specific tax regulations for starting an online business in the city / state / country where they live. As a part of the VA Toolbox included in the SavvySystem, you will also get the contact information for the attorney who created the contracts for you to ask specific questions about your unique legal situations.  


WHERE CAN I ACCESS THE TRAININGS FROM?

You will be able to access your trainings from almost anywhere around the world! All you need is a device connected to the internet!

Unfortunately, if you live in Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Indonesia, or Crimea, you won't be able to view the trainings due to your country's restrictions.
