Jocelyn Reyes – Your Fab VA
Learn the ropes from a 20-year VA veteran.
It was June 28, 1997, just 2 days before my 33rd birthday. I’d just been laid off from my job as VP of a computer service company. The rent was due that week, and there was no money in my bank account. A stressful divorce had recently made me a newly single mother to three young kids, and my support system lived 3500 miles away.
I was feeling quite sorry for myself as I made my way home from the food bank on the city bus. (My car had been in an accident, and I couldn’t afford another one.)
The kids were tired and grumpy that evening, fighting and screaming at each other, and I couldn’t take the stress. I sat down at the table and started bawling.
I didn’t like feeling poor. I didn’t want to rely on the food bank. I wanted to provide my kids with nice Christmases and fun summer vacations. How was I going to find a job that would pay enough to cover the costs of childcare, rent and food, let alone extras?
My pity party was interrupted by one of my kids trying to console me, saying, “Don’t cry, Mommy. It scares me, and I don’t like seeing you sad.”
I made the decision then and there to take steps to change my situation. MY LOVE for those kids was the fuel I needed to move forward.
I started searching for work I could do from home to avoid the high costs of childcare while bringing in some money. While surfing online for opportunities, I came across a website for a Virtual Assistant. She was providing administrative assistance to clients virtually.
I had never heard the phrase “Virtual Assistant” before. But that was something I could do! I set off on a mission to figure out how to start my own VA business, which wasn’t easy.
At the time, there were very few (if any) books or resources out there to satisfy my desire to learn more about virtual assistance. Remember, this was 1997. There was no Facebook yet. Google hadn’t even been invented!
I eventually came across a couple of online communities for Virtual Assistants and they were a wealth of information! That’s where I was able to find answers to many of my questions about virtual assistance and where I would learn much of what I needed to know to launch my own virtual assistance business, Mediamage Business Solutions.
My business allowed me to use my administrative skills to earn a living from home.
Soon, I was making enough money to replace my salary and my ex-husband’s. I was there when my kids were sick, I was able to take them to their activities, and I grew that home-based business to six-figures.
In 2003, I launched the Virtual Assistant Network—an online community where VAs worldwide could connect and learn from each other. I LOVED sharing my secrets and answering questions so much that I just knew the next leg of my journey was going to be teaching others how to start a virtual business in less time and with less stress, in a more structured way.
I’ve enrolled thousands of students in The VAC $uccess System since 2003.
Hundreds of six-figure virtual businesses are operating today as a result of that program. Including the VA business that belongs to my daughter! Yes, she’s all grown up now and running a successful business of her own!
The curriculum in the Virtual Assistant Career $uccess System answers all the questions I had when I was starting my business and many that I wish I’d thought to ask at the time! Every year, the content is updated so the information is fresh and relevant.
I sincerely believe that anyone who follows my system from start-to-finish will be successful. And I want you to be one of those success stories.
Your six-figure career is waiting for you.
You want to grow your business to six-figures and beyond, but you have no idea how to do that. There’s so much information out there that you’re completely overwhelmed and don’t know what you actually need to learn and what’s fluff.
More than twenty years ago, I was a single mother with three young kids and I couldn’t afford childcare. I knew I had to earn a living from home somehow, but I had no idea how to do that. I stumbled upon the Virtual Assistance industry and figured out how to build a successful business that would support my family. Making six figures is possible and by following my program, you can get there.
The Virtual Assistant Career $uccess System has helped thousands of people take control of their financial destinies. Simply choose the investment option that best suits your goal, follow the modules, and take advantage of the coaching and support that comes with your program! If you stick with it, you’ll be golden.
Enroll now so you can stop feeling stressed about money, and start earning that $5,000 per month!
All you have to do is:
- Choose your package
- Follow the steps laid out in the modules
- Live your dream
And I can’t wait to cheer you on!

The KICKSTART package gives you access to me via Voxer (a free walkie-talkie phone app) for one question a day for a full month. I’m right there at your fingertips anytime you feel like you need some help and you can check in daily with a question about that day’s module!
In the ELEVATE package, you get two private coaching sessions via Zoom and those sessions will be recorded for you to refer back to as often as you like. We’ll book our first session when you start the program to help you get organized and make sure you’re on the right track, and a final wrap-up session when you’re finished! PLUS you’ll get access to me via Voxer for three months! Lots of accountability in this package!
Finally, with the DOMINATE package, you’re getting 12 private coaching sessions PLUS access to me on Voxer for a full year. Coaching is critical for hitting the six-figure mark as a freelancer.

2. Lifetime Access to our Mastermind VAC $uccess Support Forum
In 2003, I built a forum for VAs, to give us a public place to talk about our businesses, our challenges, and to celebrate our wins. It’s still going today but now it’s private. This forum has more than a hundred thousand posts, which you can search to get quick answers to any question you could possibly have about being a VA! Ask any question keeping you awake at night and it will be answered by another member of our community. Best of all, unlike a Facebook group, there are no ads or distractions to derail you in our forum, and no matter what changes Facebook decides to make (and they have made countless changes since they came on the scene!), our forum will always remain a PRIVATE, trusted source of information to help you grow your business.
3. A Get Clients Club Membership
The Get Clients Club will help you further land the clients you need to be successful. You can join us on our monthly group coaching calls, access our core Get Clients training series, utilize a treasure trove of business templates and bonus masterclasses on the inside to help you find more clients.

You can be up and running with your virtual business in no time at all.

Jaime Lee Mann’s Story…
While on maternity leave with my first baby, it became clear that it would make zero financial sense to go back to working for $11/hour as an administrative assistant, given the cost of childcare. But we needed a second income.
A series of random events led me to the idea of becoming a Virtual Assistant… and to Tawnya’s VAC $uccess System. We were in pretty rough financial shape at the time, and the cost of the program was terrifying. I knew in my gut, though, that it was going to pay off. And my very supportive husband believed me. We scrimped and saved and did without some things until there was enough room on a credit card for the cost of the program. I was determined to prove that it was going to pay off.
I followed that curriculum like it was my full-time job. I spent every spare minute on the forum making connections, finding answers to my questions, and making notes in my workbook. I bought the Virtual Assistant Career $uccess System in February, officially launched that June, and was booked solid with retainer clients by July. The program paid for itself in my first month in business.
Fifteen years later, I’m still self-employed—now as a brand strategist and copywriter. I don’t work for less than $100/hour and I can honestly say I’ve never had trouble finding clients. I’m actually still getting referrals from people I met on those forums! If you follow Tawnya’s system, you’ll be successful. It sounds corny, but it’s true.
Investing in the VAC $uccess System was the best thing I ever could have done for my family and my career.
Tawnya’s program was exactly what I needed to get my business off the ground and growing. In the first week of the course, I landed 3 clients.

Can’t I just figure out all this on my own?
Of course you can. And if you have time to spare, go for it! But if you’re serious about hitting the ground running sooner than later, with all of the right pieces in place, give yourself a break ?
I’ve been where you are and decided to give it a go on my own. There was no training program back in my day to help me start my Virtual Assistant business. It took me 2 years before I was making six figures from my high-paying clients, because I had to learn how to do it all the hard way. Without a roadmap on how to get started, I wasted major time and energy in the wrong areas figuring out how to make this business work when I could have been making money servicing clients. If only there had been a blueprint like this training program for me back then I’d have been up and running in 30 days (with a website!). TRUST ME…don’t waste your time figuring it out! I did that for you.
Why should I choose your training over others I see online?
I’ve been a leader, trainer, coach and spokesperson in the Virtual Assistant for over 20 years. Just Google me or ask around. I have a long and strong history of helping VAs get started and scaling their business into 6 figures. I’ve also been running my own VA business since 1997 so I walk the talk and who better to learn from than someone doing it? 😉
This question touches my heart because unfortunately, I have seen many “POP-UP” VA trainers/coaches come and go over the years preying on the vulnerable who want to get started as a VA. These instructors have never even run a successful Virtual Assistant business of their own yet. Simply put they are blowing sunshine up the backsides of people who just want to learn how to run a successful VA business. It’s sad but true and I see it happening every day … a flashy website, a lip-syncing Tiktok video, pearly promises, and a lightning bolt strikes another poor soul sucked into handing over their money for training that won’t help them.
You’ll get no smoke and mirrors with me as I’m an introvert (maybe like you). You’ll never catch me singing karaoke, ever! LOL! My sole mission over the years has been to help Virtual Assistants however I can. You can trust I’ve got your back throughout the lifetime of your Virtual Assistant career with me because I’m a nurturer at heart and get my kicks seeing business success with my VA friends.
So, I encourage you to do your due diligence when choosing a Virtual Assistant Career training program. Ask your other VA friends who have been in business for a while what training programs they recommend. AND remember, Google can be your best friend in finding out information about other training programs or instructors. That or the Wayback Machine can be used to figure out how long a company to do your due diligence. For example, here’s my VA website or my VAnetworking.com training site that shows I’ve been in business for years working as a VA. Who better to learn from than someone who has been doing it successfully for years?
How much time is this actually going to take me?
I’m not going to sugar coat this as it does take effort on your part to successfully launch a business but the effort is so worth it! To have the freedom to work when you want, wherever you want with whoever you want is priceless!
I’ve sold this training program to thousands of people over the years. Most people spend 3-5 hours a day and have a business ready to go within a month. My quickest startup was 7 days while others take 3-6 months. The training is built to work at your own pace as each person’s lifestyle is different.
Can you share more details about the coaching with Tawnya?
Since 2005, I’ve been working with Virtual Assistants (Freelancers and Service Providers like Graphic Designers, ghostwriters, social media managers, etc.) to help them clear the clutter and take revenue-generating ACTION! I’ve personally coached 1000s of Virtual Assistants over the years and I don’t hold anything back with my protégés. I give everything I have and then some. VAs who work with me get the full benefit of my skills, knowledge, years of experience and PASSION for helping entrepreneurs succeed online in this increasingly competitive industry. All of the packages in my VAC offer coaching with me. Read about my coaching in more detail by clicking here.
How up to date is the curriculum?
The training program originally started out in print back in 2005. Every quarter, the modules get an overhaul so that it always contains up-to-date information for your learning adventure. VAC owners have perpetual access to the modules. I have VAs who bought it back in 2005 still accessing it years later learning something new every time they log back into their member area.
What are the details about the website that’s included?
The website that’s included in the two higher-priced package options comes with:
– 6 or 12 months of free hosting
– Unlimited email addresses
– Installation of WordPress
– Basic Install of DIVI Elegant Theme with lifetime updates when hosting with us.
– Added Plugins: Bloom Email Optin plugin, Monarch Social Media plugin with lifetime updates when hosting with us.
– Learning Resource area for both WordPress and DIVI Elegant Theme.
– Website Forum area to ask questions and get support
– (Must be used within one year from date of purchase)
How long do I have access to your training program?
Having someone (Tawnya your VA Coach) there that’s got your back is going to make it so much easier for you to have a 6 figure income. I for one highly recommend the Virtual Assistant Career training program! Kathy Colaiacovo – 6+ figure business owner of Pepper It Marketing
If ever there was a perfect time to put a solid business foundation under your skills as a service provider, it’s now.
I’ve been an Internet marketer since before Google was even around. I know that I should be creating a sense of urgency here, to make you think you have to “sign up now before it’s too late!” To give you a good solid case of FOMO (fear of missing out). But I’m not going to do that because it would be a lie.
The Virtual Assistant Career $uccess System isn’t going anywhere.
I’m not going to create a fake deadline to try and manipulate you into investing in this program before you’re ready. That’s no good for anyone.
The reason I’ve put my heart and soul into this for close to twenty years, is because I care about helping women to make a good living from their hard-earned skills.
I have all the money I need. I can spoil my grandkids. I can buy whatever handbag I want. I’ve bought my expensive toys (like my new ‘gotta luv red’ Land Rover) and I’ll be travelling again as soon as it’s safe to do so.
I’m still here doing this because I don’t want you to struggle like I did.
This program will still be here six months from now, a year from now, four years from now. If you’re not ready today, come back when you are.
If you really can’t find the money to do this now, I get it. I’ve seen the inside of a food bank and I know what it means to have nothing more to give. But if it’s fear that’s stopping you, that’s another story.
The pandemic has changed the world. It’s changed the way we live, the way we work, and the way we think.
We don’t know what the future has in store. And there really is no such thing as job security. If you’re a service provider, you can be in charge of your own employment. You can make your own rules.
I want you to have the knowledge, the confidence, and the support you need to make a go of this.
AND I want you raking in those six figures as soon as possible. 😉
To Your Virtual $uccess,
Your VA Coach & Cheerleader
Get your VA business started:
- Choose your package
- Follow the steps laid out in the modules
- Live your dream
Because I can’t wait to see you raking in those 6 figures!

Tammy Rourk’s Success Journey…
I can’t say enough how being a member of the Virtual Assistant Career $uccess System has literally saved my business!
When I first started, there was, and still is, so much information! I felt like I was drowning and struggled to get air. Most of the information I found was classic text book do this, not that. There wasn’t any practical experience. I needed help from a living person, someone who has been through it. I’ll admit, even after I first joined, I didn’t realize the vast wealth of information Tawnya has to offer!
I was at my wits end, running a business without any clients. I followed Tawnya’s module on landing clients religiously, and even posted goals in our VAinsiders group to hold me accountable. Last month I signed on two long-term clients, and I have a few more I’m following up with now. Everything is looking up!! You don’t have to be alone on this journey. I’m learning from Tawnya’s experiences, and let me just say, I am very glad that Tawnya has made these resources available to help us grow our business!!
Investing in the Virtual Assistant $uccess System is the absolute best thing I’ve ever done for my business, Task VA!
