Resources To Start Your Virtual Assistant Biz
I Built My Biz While Backpacking Ireland
I was about a month into building my VA biz with my mentor when I was granted vacation time that I hadn’t had in YEARS!
A whole month (plus or minus) before I had to be back at work!
So I pulled out my wanderlust world map, thought of who I knew where, and decided to book a flight to Ireland.
…. And then I had to tell my mentor. #uhoh
I had to somehow explain to her that this vacation was SO important that I needed to pause building my virtual assistant business.
I was worried my laptop would get stolen, I was worried it wouldn’t be able to fully relax, I was worried this may be the last time I get a month to travel….
So, I mustered up the courage to break it to my mentor that I would have to pause the VA program and building my biz… it was a tough decision.
Her response was, “But Rebecca, isn’t this the exact lifestyle that you’re trying to build? The ability to travel with your laptop?”
She was totally right!
So I bought a new digital nomad backpack with a laptop sleeve, boarded my plane, and flew to Ireland.
I found little moments here and there to build my biz and apply for positions:
- A layover in the airport
- On the bus between Irish towns
- Near the fire in my hostel living room
I ended up completing THREE overseas phone call interviews and landing a 30-hour a week client!!
I would find quiet corners with the strongest wifi
I would call my mom back home first to test the connection
I would nap and stay up late to align the time zones
I remember so clearly when I learned I landed this client….
I was sitting at a pub by myself chatting with the old Irish men perched at the bar sipping on an Irish Coffee. I got the email on my phone and my jaw dropped.
It suddenly hit me…. I could quit my job.
I was officially a full-time VA #mindblown
This was it. This was the life I was literally working so hard to create.
I was doing it!

Quotes from Laptop Freedom Program Alumni
LFP was amazing and i did it all right after bringing home my sweet baby boy! I couldn't have become a Virtual instructor. She was there the whole way ...whenever I needed anything. So thank you LFP for the knowledge, motivation and changing my life!
Before I joined LFP I had no idea where to start, but I knew I wanted to work from home and have freedom. LFP gave me all of the resources, confidence and support I needed to get my business started!
My life has changed so much since LFP. I am the mama I wanted to be always and I am kicking ass in my business. Listen to the advice you are given and you will dominate in your business. Love you guys!
LFP was worth every single penny. The confidence, skills, and real-life experience I gained from this program were so incredibly valuable! Two Months in, I had my first client. If I tried to become a VA on my own, it may have taken me years to get where I am now.
