Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is a Virtual Assistant?
A virtual assistant is a person who provides various services to entrepreneurs or businesses from a remote location. There are a host of things that virtual assistants can do, including Social Media Management, managing calendars, appointments, and emails, preparing reports, personal tasks like booking hotels and restaurants, simple digital marketing tasks, and more. In short, you’re like a personal secretary working for a client from overseas.

Will you refer me to clients after I finish the course?
Part of your assignments is to submit proposals through freelancing platforms with my guidance. My commitment is I will not leave you until you have your first client. We also have a training-to-hiring program for all qualified graduates.
How long will it take to get a client?
It varies. This will be the most realistic answer you can get. A lot of my students get hired before we even finish the course. But this doesn’t happen to everyone. Becoming a freelancer doesn’t happen overnight, so you would need to show constant determination in order for you to get a client. Others get hired after the course, others take months. But as long as you show your determination, you will get your client. And I will be here to help you achieve that, even after you finish your course. Again, my ultimate goal is for you to get a client.
How much will I earn in Freelancing?
Newbies (no background/no skills before taking the course) usually start at $3/hour. After taking the course, you can start with $4 since you will be learning many skills through our training. Others with existing skills can charge between $5-$10/hour depending on the services they can offer. You control how much you earn. There are full-time positions, part-time, flexible schedule, or project-based positions.
Is there a certificate after the course?
Yes, absolutely, as long as you finish the assignments within the given deadline. And you can use the certificate as your portfolio anywhere.
What is your recommended internet speed for the course?
At least 3MBPS will do. If you can get something faster, that would be better so you’re more prepared for your actual clients.
I have full-time work/class.
No worries. Our lessons are all pre-recorded and you can do them at your own pace, anytime and anywhere you are available. 🙂
I didn’t go to college. Will I still be qualified?
Definitely! Freelancing doesn’t discriminate against non-college goers. It’s open to everyone as long as you have the determination!
Do I need to be fluent in English?
No, you don’t. You only need basic English to be a freelancer 🙂
Do I need a laptop? I don’t have one.
Using a computer is recommended because you will have application assignments all throughout the course. I have students who work on their lessons and assignments in internet cafes and computer shops until they get clients. By then, they will have the money to get their own laptop.
Do I need a headset and a webcam during the course?
You would need a headset or a speaker to listen to our live coaching sessions. So if your laptop has a working speaker, you’re ready. You won’t need a webcam.
