Martha's SOS


The Virtually Anywhere Apprentice

My name is Martha Christie and I am the proud owner of Martha’s SOS. I came across Virtual Miss Friday a couple of years ago when I was doing research on becoming a Virtual Assistant. Back then I thought her website was amazing and it was at that point my dream began. I never visited her website again, and went on my way creating my business.

My business wasn’t very successful, but it was enough to keep me going along with a full time job. It wasn’t until I was made redundant that I took the leap to being my own boss – But my company wasn’t doing great and I would never have survived. I was inevitably looking at failure.

In 2010, after a lot of soul searching, I found a blog. This was a blog run by Michelle Dale a.k.a. Virtual Miss Friday – I instantly thought WOW. Here was a Virtual Assistant offering amazing advice and tips to other Virtual Assistants on how to make a success of their business. Then I saw that she was running a VA Apprentice (Ah, I thought….The Alan Sugar of the VA World lol). After reading about it, I thought that it was too good to be true however, I applied for a place on the course. This was the Beta version and Michelle was running a competition. I kept my fingers crossed and hoped that I would win a place. I barely slept for a few weeks until that all important email hit my inbox – I’d won my place. At that point I thought all my Christmases had come at once. I’m not going to give away any details of the course, you’ll have to join to find out how awesome it is, but I have completed it and achieved my accreditation.

I began my business as a struggling virtual assistant, with some clients who treated me like their office administrator instead of a business owner. Now that I have completed the course, I no longer have those clients and the clients that I do have treat me like a business owner and listen to my advice.

Michelle has totally changed my life, honestly. And it is all down to the VA Apprentice. Michelle is an awesome mentor. Her advice is honest, factual and it works. Going through the course there were times when I had my doubts if it would work but……It does. I was struggling to work out how anyone could find a clients on Twitter – I’d barely touched it since I’d registered. But one evening I sat on Twitter and made a start. That week I won 2 clients. What I am trying to say is, IT WORKED! My client intake has increased and my income doubled last month (my website was only launched for a week). It’s hard work, but it’s worth it.
Michelle is dedicated to the course, visiting the forums daily, offering advice and pointing everyone in the right direction. From the very beginning of the course to the very end, Michelle is with you 100% of the way. I have never met anyone like Michelle before and I seriously do not think that I ever will again. She is so kind, warm hearted, considerate, professional, a dedicated business owner and is genuinely interested in helping Virtual Assistants achieve the same success that she has.

My last word needs to go to Michelle – I thank you from the very bottom of my heart for giving me hope, knowledge, THE most awesome website and the ability to do something that I love and that’s helping people! I am honoured to call you MY MENTOR!”

The Virtually Anywhere Shoestring

My name is Martha Christie and I am a virtual assistant – I started following Michelle Dale a few years ago and completed The VA Apprentice Training Program (not to be missed). I have also joined The VA Passport (you need to join this) and more recently The VA Shoestring.

The work that Michelle does for the virtual assistant and online industry never ceases to amaze me!

Having just completed The VA Shoestring, I can honestly say this is a seriously awesome course that will get you up-and-running in no time at all, even if you want to do it part-time!

The VA Shoestring is a DIY Course for setting up your business in 30 days. All I can say is OMG, this is seriously content rich, full of systems, processes, tips and tricks to get you on your way to becoming an online business owner – The best thing is… You can do it almost for FREE!

In a nutshell, Michelle provides you with “the inside scoop” on some of her business techniques for gaining clients, there are tutorials on how to set up your website, develop the content, the best way to get networking and there is even a ‘live’ client consultation! I could go on and on about the content, but you’d be better off seeing it for yourself.

As a virtual assistant just setting up, or if you are looking to start your online business or even if you just want to take on board more learning (like I did), then The VA Shoestring is an absolute “must have” – I even learned something new!

Thank you Michelle – For being my inspiration!”

The Virtually Anywhere Rockstar


"Before I started the VA Rockstar Training Programme I was struggling to obtain what I would call ‘high profile’ clients. Yes I had a lot of clients however, during this course, I found out that a lot of these clients were actually costing me money rather than making me money. I did a lot of soul searching during the VA Rockstar and it made me look at my business in a whole different light.

Since taking the training course, my business has gone from strength to strength. My marketing has changed direction, I am now pulling in clients that want to work with me and in the past couple of months, clients are coming to me rather than me looking for them. Which is what every business owner wants, right? I work very hard in my business but doing the VA Rockstar has made things simpler for me and I now have more time to either take on more clients or indeed spend it doing something for myself.

The way the course is presented, the interviews from the experts all go hand in hand with the learning process. I have clear goals in place, I now take the SMART approach and I’m achieving my goals. I no longer feel overwhelmed with everything and my days are planned to perfection. My client consultations have turned a new corner, as since doing this training program all my consultations have turned into clients!

What I also found valuable during the program, was a phone call with Michelle. Man that call is great – Once you have been through the programme, you have the opportunity to discuss your goals and your plans with Michelle who is absolutely wonderful at guiding you in the right direction to make it all happen. Michelle is an extremely talented woman and a person who I have utter respect for. This program (along with all the other programs that Michelle has) turned my business from zero to hero in a matter of months. Thank you Michelle Dale and the AWESOME VA Rockstar."
