From Francis van Wyk

Your Marketing Success Mentor and Coach


Dear Aspiring Virtual Assistant


  • Do you want to start your own Virtual Assistant business but are not exactly sure where to start and what to do first, second or next?
  • Do you want step-by-step help to figure out what services to offer, how to get all your processes and procedures in place, how to determine your rates and how to start getting your first clients?
  • Do you have loads of questions, but no answers?


If YES…then I’m so glad you’re here!


Join Me For A 2 DAY, Action & Implementation Training Program to Get Your VA Business Started.

 20 & 21 March 2015

This 2 Day Start from Scratch Program is more than just training. It consists of virtual-coaching, action and implementation sessions and plenty of Q&A time.


I’ve completely laid out my entire business start-up plan in a step-by-step format for you, so that you know EXACTLY what to do and in what order to do it in.

You’re about to discover the quickest, simplest and most direct path possible to start your own business – whether you want to go into business  full-time or just want to test the waters by doing it part-time.

We’ll spend two days in a virtual training room, where you’ll get all the information of WHAT to do in a clear and straight forward step-by-step format. And be able to take ACTION and implement the steps immediately, so you progress faster and have your new business up and running in as little time as possible.


So let’s get you started right now……


I’m sorry…




A Successful Start-Up Requires 3 Steps

What I learned over the years is that there are really only THREE all-encompassing steps to starting your business and making it a huge success. These steps are:


  1. Take care of YOURSELF
  2. Take care of your BUSINESS
  3. Take care of your CLIENTS

When you take care of yourself, you will be able to make the right decisions, give attention to the things that matter most, know how you can serve your clients best and be motivated to keep on moving forward.

When you take care of your business, you will implement the right systems, processes and procedures that makes running your business so much more fun and…

When you take care of your clients, you will know where to find them, how to keep them and how to build long lasting client relationships.

All three of these: You, Your Business and Your Clients must be in balance to run a well-rounded business.

In the Start from Scratch Program, we will delve deep into each of these steps.


The Start From Scratch Program focuses on what you need to start your business successfully ~ from only having an idea to transforming it into a profitable business


The beauty of starting a VA business is that you can  do it part-time and build it into a fully-fledged business over time OR you can start doing it full-time.

However, whether you want to go into business full-time or want to do it part-time, it involves the same processes.



Joan improved her existing business to make it even more successful


“Francis, thanks so much – I’ve been in business for myself for the last 5 years, but listening to your videos gave me so much insight into improving my existing business as well as acquiring the added skills to be successful and make it happen in my VA Business. With so much trial and error, money wasted to try and get it working, your steps to a successful business explained it all so effectively. I thought everybody and anybody wanted my products, sending out endless emails and waiting for a reply. No wonder I am just getting by, waiting and waiting and then blaming the economy and everything else besides my marketing strategy. Thanks and thanks again!”

Here’s just a SAMPLING of what you’ll learn and do during the 2 days


Step1: Take care of YOURSELF

take-care-of-yourselfMost aspiring Virtual Assistants come from an office administrative background, and moving from a protective employee environment into business owner status can be pretty intimidating for many.

Common struggles include things like:

  • Fear of change – should I wait for a better time to do it?
  • Fear of failure – will I be able to do it? What if it doesn’t work out?
  • Fear of rejection – will I get clients, I’m not the marketing type?

And a gazillion other fears, false beliefs and objections that are keeping them back from starting out strong.

To cope and overcome these, it is extremely important to understand yourself, and TAKE CARE OF YOU, FIRST.

ONLY when you understand who you are as a person, what you are willing to do, what you want in life and why you want it, you’ll be able to create the business success you want. This kind of knowledge helps you change behaviors that don’t suite you. It also directs your thoughts, plans, behaviors and actions to achieve those things you want.

So, in the 2 Day, Start From Scratch Training you’ll…

  • Get to know YOU better, so you can feel much more confident about starting your new business and getting clients.
  • Get clarity on what you REALLY want – professionally in your business and personally in your life. This is important so you can become clear about your motivations for starting your business and creating plans for achieving your dreams.
  • Take stock of ALL your marketable skills so you can confidently decide what services to offer to clients.
  • Identify the skills you are good at AND enjoy doing – so you can convert them into profitable services.
  • Discover the best in-demand services that can lift your business up above the crowd.
  • Discover more than 120 specific target markets – people who use the services of Virtual Assistants so you can easier identify who you want to work with.


Step 2: Take Care of Your BUSINESS

Take-care-businessOnce you’ve made the decision to start your business, it’s important to get things in place to perform business effectively. It is also important to know what you want from your business and to create an action plan to achieve it.

  • Get your office and equipment sorted out.
  • Understand the legal and tax requirements for performing business.
  • Set up processes and systems for sending invoices and receiving payments
  • Understand how to take care of your financials so that you are in control of your income and expenses…and are able to grow your business financially from day 1.
  • Understand and work on the most important policies, procedures and systems you need to effectively perform business on a daily basis.
  • Avoid the most common mistakes people make when setting their rates.
  • Understand what people are really paying for.
  • Understand different factors that impact on how you set your rates.
  • Understand different strategies to charge for your services.
  • Determine rates that reflect your unique situation and return a profit to your business.
  • Create your own very specific and clear goals to take your business quickly, but effectively to the next level.
  • Plan your success so that you have a clear road map of when to do what in your business.


Step 3: Take Care of Your CLIENTS

take_care-clientsNo business can survive without clients. Knowing WHO you want to work with, WHERE to find them and HOW to reach them saves  countless hours of wasted time and a whole lot of heartache.

In the Start From Scratch Training you’ll…

  • Learn how to overcome those marketing obstacles  so you can market like a pro, from the start.
  • Learn where to start with  marketing and getting clients.
  • Determine who you want to work with.

Antoinette started out with no clients, no income and no idea how to build her business – but this program changed her life!


“Before working with Francis I was just starting out with no clients, no income and no idea how to build my business or market it. I received SOOOOO many actionable tools and ideas that I put to work right away. I now have the basics in place and got a specific plan for how to grow and market my business. This program changed my life! I didn’t even apply all the action steps yet, but I already feel more confident when doing business and talking to people, just because I now know how to do it right. I’m so excited about my future.”

Carjolein started her business part-time and had her first clients within 1 month

“Like a lot of people I had a ‘dream/idea’ of being my own boss but I never knew how to go about it or if it was possible. Working with Francis turned a vague ‘dream/idea’ into a workable plan and has given me confidence that it is achievable.

The skills and tools Francis provides has helped me to quickly and effectively identify and become clear on the steps I have to follow to plan my business, identify clients and their needs and promote myself in the most effective way.

I started my new business part-time and had my first clients within 1 month. I plan to have my business at a level where I can pursue it full-time before the end of the year.
