You can't rely on your job

The Solution: Virtual Assistant Mentorship Program

    “I was generally feeling really confused about what skills I have to offer as a virtual assistant, and the VA Mentors Program is helping me gain clarity. Working with Garland Coulson (aka Captain Time) is great, for he is encouraging and provides honest feedback. Love the website because it offers expertise on how to start-up, build, and secure business as well as step-by-step checklists and videos. I am looking forward to continuing my journey in the virtual assistant world with the help of the VA Mentors Program.”

  • Captain Time Training

    “As a new mom, with vast experience, I wanted to spend time with my new born, so I started my VA business but I was barely getting by, with almost nil results. Taking the Garland’s VA Mentorship course allowed me to clearly structure and package my business allowing me to have a better grip, clear goals, target clients and expected results.

    The course content and assignments equipped me with the necessary knowledge, experience and tools to be a more effective VA. Undertaking the process of creating resources for my business, in the course gave me more clarity, experience and confidence to narrow down my services and pursue my target clients with confidence and deliver excellent services.

    While, I am not where I want to be yet, taking Garland’s VA mentorship has put me on the right track, shown visible results and it’s just a matter of time before I get to where I want to be. Garland provided mentorship and coaching and was helpful throughout the course, by being available for questions, reviewing my proposals, tasks and sharing leads of potential clients.

    So, if you want to take your VA business off the ground, or expand your business or specialize your services, I highly recommend that you consider taking Garland’s VA Mentorship course. ”
