So, you think that you might want to start a virtual business...
Well - you're probably right!
I did this almost 4 years ago. I launched Your Essential Assistant, my virtual assistant business, as a way to supplement my income. In 2018, I walked away from my corporate America job (and haven’t looked back since) and pursued my business as a full time venture!
I can help you build, launch, and scale the side hustle to end all side hustles (Or even to leave your 9-5!)
Be Virtual Today is the passion project of Michelle LaVine. She is the owner
and founder of Your Essential Assistant, a virtual assistant company founded in 2015 that provides strategic, administrative, logistical, and back office support to small business owners, entrepreneurs, and start-ups.

What's included in the program?
It's all in the custom roadmap built for your business's launch
No two virtual businesses are the same. That’s why the path for each business owner will look a little bit (or a lot) different. And this is a good thing. You want to stand out from the crowd online.
In order for you to stand out and become a client magnet, we need to build a brand for your business – not just workflows, strategies, and sales call scripts. Here’s what we’ll work through together inside the course:
- What services you’re best at and whether you’re going to market yourself as a generalist or a specialist
- How to position yourself in order to book high-end clients
- Branding your business so that you are recognizable and viewed as an authority in your niche
- How to set your rates as a virtual assistant or other virtual specialist
- Protecting yourself legally: Trademarks, contracts, agreements, and more
- Social media strategy for your business
“I had been thinking about becoming a VA for a long time, but felt I needed real-world advice from someone walking the walk. After meeting Michelle in a woman’s business Facebook group, she graciously agreed to a phone call about starting a VA business. She generously offered up amazingly useful advice that got me from the idea stage to launch stage. Her enthusiasm and positivity makes anything seem possible.”
“I’ve been fortunate to work with Michelle in a one-on-one capacity since before launching my VA business in 2017. Michelle’s advice, coaching and accountability have been instrumental in my success. Without Michelle, I would not have had the confidence or insight to pursue my own business. She has been a true asset as a coach and I would recommend her programs to anyone, without hesitation.”
