Ready your wallets because it's going to be open for a limited time
But it wasn’t always like that.
There was a time when I was literally kicked out of my apartment because I couldn’t afford to pay the rent. Just to be clear, this is not one of those movies when “love and friendship” overcame in the end, and I didn’t have to move. No. This is reality, and in my reality, I was given less than 48 hours to pack all my bags and evacuate the premises.
Luckily enough, I was able to stay in an apartment with my friend for a while.
So, here I was, incredibly homeless and supremely broke. I was so broke that I couldn’t even afford to buy toiletries (and I’m a girl).
To make matters worse, I was supposed to be studying to retake the Pharmacology exams that I failed.
Oh, about that, I was a medical student, and I had failed Pharmacology– the part of medicine that deals with medications and drugs. To retake the exams, my school needed me to pay $150.
So, with a little bit of motivation, I did
the only thing I thought would help:
I went on Google and started pounding in a gazillion searches per hour:
I went through pages and pages of Google and read articles upon articles. I had nothing else to do. I couldn’t go to school without school fees, and I didn’t have anywhere else to go. So I just made the most of my housemate’s WiFi.
By the end of the first month alone, I had read over 200,000 words on making money online and watched a least 100 hours of YouTube videos.
I tried everything! And by everything, I mean that I even fell for those ads that promise to pay you after you answer just a few surveys.
Then, in a series of eureka moments, I started seeing a few buzz words repeating themselves— words like
I discovered that people were getting paid to help other people grow their businesses. Essentially, there was an entire industry of businesses specifically set up and designed to support other businesses and business owners.
These “Virtual Assistants” — VAs, as they are called, were the online equivalent of physical personal assistants, except that they had a wider range of skills.
You can help your clients from any part of the world. Yes, some clients might prefer their VAs to be from a specific part of the world, but the majority of people out there don’t care, as long as their work is done well and on time.
A high school dropout has about equal chances as a college graduate. In fact, in some cases, clients prefer VAs with less formal qualifications because those VAs are still willing to learn and don’t think they know everything.
There is no “International Organisation of Virtual Assistant Certification Program” that goes around checking who is qualified to work as a VA. If you can do the job, and the client is willing to pay you, that’s all that matters. No exams or licensing fees to needed.
And there are many more reasons that convinced me to become a Virtual Assistant.
But I had just one problem
Since I didn’t have a clue how to get clients, and I wasn’t exactly the most patient person, I decided to ask for help. (Looking back, this is probably the only time where impatience was actually a good thing.)
So I entered a Facebook group with the most number of VAs I could find and then I asked a question that looked a lot like this:
Someone saw my post and was also looking for a new VA to hire. So she told me she would hire me.
This is where most stories say “and the rest is history”. But, again, painfully, my reality was VERY different from a “happily ever after” story.
If anything, my first client was the beginning of a very long and difficult tunnel. Lol. Working with her taught me a lot about the online space, work ethic, perseverance, persistence, tenacity, and a lot of other vague and deep words that later made sense in my life… But it didn’t give me money!
She paid me $150 per month (exactly how much I needed to retake Pharm), but that money came with some crazy working hours.
This was in 2017. I used to wake up at 5 AM and go to sleep at 2 AM the next day. There was no such thing as personal time, study time, resting time, or leisure time. Every moment my eyes were open, I had tasks that I needed to check off my to-do list — client work, not my personal work.
My housemate kept saying I was doing “modern-day slave trade” and we would laugh about it. But I didn’t want to stop. I wanted to make my own money and buy my own basic necessities. I wanted to have money to contribute to at least contribute 10% of the bills.
But that wouldn’t happen until many months later.
It was a real dilemma for me, and for a very long time, I just kept telling people that I was going to find something for them.
I sent links, recommended courses, referred to articles, books, and videos… But none of the resources I found could explain things from my point of view, and that was a problem.
You see, when people come to me, they don’t ask “how can I make money online?” They ask “can you show me how to make money online?” There’s a difference. In the first question, a person’s just asking to know what ideas are out there. But in the second question, a part of them wants to know how I did it: me, Belema, the formerly financially challenged AKA desperately broke girl.
A few years later, I had gone from making $150 per month, to signing on a $12K client,started paying my own rent; yes, that kind of fruit.
Now, that's a big jump!
People noticed my “overnight success” and started asking me for advice. Before long, I started getting emails, DMs, voice notes, comments, and even physical meetings with people asking me to teach them.
I had two options. First, I could give generic advice like “work hard, read a lot, and never give up on your dreams.” But responses like that never helped me do anything. I doubted that it would help the people I was speaking with.
With my business now somewhat successful and still growing, I had more day-to-day responsibilities. I had clients who were counting on me to show up to my commitments. I didn’t have the time to become a full-time online business teacher. So, my second option was to take just one person at a time one-on-one; or, at most, three people.
What criteria do you use?
So, after going over some ideas with my coach and some business friends, I decided to create an online course.
No fluff, no vagueness, and no weird and shady business. This course will help you start your business and avoid the silly mistakes I made when starting out so that you have your own “overnight success” at a much faster rate.

Total Value = $3,288
(Psst! Here’s a little secret. This course has not been fully launched to the public yet, so the price you’re seeing here is just for you. And every 2 weeks, the price goes up by $50 until it launches to the public at its actual launch price. In other words, this is the lowest price this course will ever be, and the last time it will ever be at this price.)
That’s an additional $600 value added to your bonuses!
So what are you waiting for?
This course is not the Golden Elixir of Wealth that everyone can drink and have everlasting success. No, it isn’t. There are certain people that what I teach will NOT work for, and so I don’t recommend they buy it.
You’re looking for a get-rich-quick scheme and not a real business
You think having an online business means you get paid to do mostly nothing all day;
You don’t want to build a business. You just want one to two clients and then you quit;
You’re not willing to put in a minimum of 20 hours per week - that’s less than 3 hours a day - to build your business; and
You want to be spoonfed with everything and you’re not willing to do any work, research, or assignments using the info you get to grow your own business.
In it, you’re going to learn everything you need to know to build your business the right way from the start, avoid unnecessary mistakes, protect yourself from the most common legal and financial problems that Virtual Assistants face, and create systems and process to ensure that your company keeps growing!

It takes on average about 3 months to set up your Virtual Assistant business and make your first $1,000 if you know the right steps to take. Now, life happens, and you may not be able to finish the course and implement as fast as you would like. So I’m giving you a whole year of access.

While I cannot make any guarantees, it is possible to make up to $10k a month by following the course step-by-step. The speed with which you hit these goals will depend on your speed of taking action.

As they say, “two heads are better than one” and you’ll have a lot of Virtual Assistants going on their journey with you, and of course I’ll also be in the group to personally answer your questions.
No. This course is not for people who are still kicking the tires and testing the waters. If you’re thinking “let me see what’s here, and if I don’t like it I’ll quit” then this course is not for you.
I have spent a lot of time designing this course so that it is perfect for people who want to commit from the beginning to their success. If that’s you, then you’re going to absolutely love this course.
