The step-by-step program for successfully launching your own virtual assistant business & landing paying clients—with no experience needed!
You could spend months researching how to start your own biz...
What services should I offer?
How do I set up a website?
What legal responsibilities do I have?
How do I package my services?
What price should I be charging?
How do I sign and negotiate contracts?
Where do I find my first client?
How do I develop a marketing plan?
but seriously...who has time for that?
A Step-By-Step Proven Method That Works!
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 4 subcontractors working under me so I could make money while I was out playing with my kids.
NO MORE CONFUSION ABOUT WHAT YOU SHOULD DO.
NO MORE FRUSTRATION WITH RESEARCHING FOR HOURS WITH NO ANSWERS.
NO MORE GIVING UP AND EATING IN THE CORNER BY YOURSELF IN EXHAUSTION.
Before, I used to worry about where my next client was coming from or I would scramble to find the next one. Now, I have set up my business to create consistent income, generate leads from social media and I know exactly what to do when I need more clients. I've been burned before by courses and this one has totally restored my faith in online programs.

Investing in this course was the best decision I have made for my business. The marketing trainings helped me land my first client within 30 days of starting the course, and my second and third quickly followed!
This course has changed my life! I had the itch to start my own business for a long time now (because I always knew I could do it and I wanted to work for myself more than anything), but this course gave me concrete steps to follow. I felt confident and ready to pitch to clients after only the first month! The methods are tried and true and THEY WORK. The best news? I just hit my first 5k month!

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?
An exclusive Facebook community group is included 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.
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.
WHERE CAN I ACCESS THE TRAINING FROM?
You will be able to access your training 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 training due to your country's restrictions.
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?
Abbey GUARANTEES the SavvySystem will WORK for your business. Yep. She is so convinced that you will LOVE the program that she’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.
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.
Want to be a virtual assistant but don't love design? We've got you covered with our logo and branding board templates, created specifically for Virtual Assistants. These templates will make branding your business a breeze.
