Virtual Assistants are taking center stage as more small business owners become comfortable with freelancers and remote work. The VA industry is exploding, so it’s no longer hard to find clients and be fully booked. So, how are YOU doing?
Do you feel like your Virtual Assistant career isn’t going anywhere? Are you tired of potential clients haggling with you over your rate? Are you looking for someone to help you bridge the gap from $1k months to $5k months? If so, then Virtual Assistant Coaching and Training is the answer for you!
VA Industry Superstars
In this blog post, I’m introducing you to the three most popular coaches that can help you scale your successful VA business: Abbey Ashley, Esther Inman, and Gina Horkey.
All three ran a Virtual Assistant company before creating a course and training program. So, it’s no surprise that each has had great results in helping thousands of women start as VAs themselves.
Plus, these ladies have stellar core values:
- Great VA’s provide value first – you need to represent the industry well and treat your clients right!
- Get paid your worth – don’t lowball your rates, or worse, do something crazy like work for free!
- Being a soloprenuer doesn’t mean that you should isolate yourself – make a reasonable investment in yourself for training and group coaching when starting your biz
- Your business should complement your lifestyle and family circumstances – the whole idea of a home business is to create work-life balance
- Start your business the right way legally—use the proper client agreements, pay your taxes and don’t cut corners
Abbey Ashley started her VA business while pregnant with her first child. She scaled her VA biz into a six figure agency (Ashley Assistants) before becoming a business coach and course creator.
Abbey’s blog posts, You Tube channel, tech membership, and courses fall under The Virtual Savvy umbrella.
Forbes Magazine has featured Abbey on the Next 1,000 List as an “upstart entrepreneur redefining the American dream.”
With Abbey Ashley, you’re getting a seasoned coach who has been through each step and teaches from personal experience. I love Abbey Ashley as a mentor because she has plenty of experience running an agency with a team of subcontractors working for her. When she talks about scaling up to $10,000, $12,000, or even $15,000 per month, you can trust her advice.
I immediately enrolled in the Savvy System after discovering Abbey in 2018. You can read my review of her signature course The Savvy System here.

While working in the world of financial planning, Gina Horkey knew there must be more to life than a career that left her paying day care bills and feeling unfulfilled. She was desperate for a lifestyle that would allow her to spend more time with her two babies. She thought freelance writing seemed like an opportunity worth exploring.
As the breadwinner for her family of four (now five!), Gina needed a consistent and predictable income before leaving her 9-5. She went from Freelance Writer (where earnings can fluctuate wildly month by month) to Virtual Assistant.
I love Gina because she understands the “messy middle.” She launched her biz slowly while juggling motherhood with a high-salary, high-pressure job. She was working from her cold basement couch at 4:30 AM, while nursing a baby…. before showering, putting on a suit, and running off to work. Yikes!
Today, Gina is fulfilling her dreams as a VA coach. Her mission to teach others how to start a money-making home business. She launched the #FullyBookedVA System and the rest is, as they say, history!
Gina is also the author of the best-selling book Make Money as a Virtual Assistant.
