Learn from my mistakes - don't try to do it on your own! I've gone through it all in my own biz and helped many others get clarity, discover their niche, and come up with a foolproof strategy to market themselves to success. Having a mentor makes a HUGE difference when it comes to starting up a small business or getting your biz to the next level of success. Having a mentor who's had incredible success as a VA and also has a masters in Adult Education would be priceless. Can you afford this?
A better question might be: Can you afford NOT to do this?

I have used YDV several times in the past few years. YDV has helped me to connect with potential clients while saving me hours of time searching for leads! I started my business on online platforms that took a percentage of my earnings and generally connected me to potential clients who weren’t a great match or easy to work with. Galena’s service connected me to potential clients who had a better idea of what they needed, were open to my contributions, and were willing to pay what I charge, all without paying any percentage of my earnings back to her - just a small, reasonable monthly fee. Because of YDV, I was able to increase the hourly rate I had been charging. This, combined with the time savings in searching for leads, means that I was able to enjoy a change in lifestyle due to my increased earnings and work availability. This service has been invaluable. Thank you again!!!
The Your Daily Vitamin VA job leads service was instrumental in getting my VA business started. I acquired 2 clients immediately from the leads I received from the Your Daily Vitamin when I first started off as a newbie VA. I had just finished Galena's Newbie VA MiniClinic course and was ready and excited to get started. Those first two clients also referred me to their colleagues and I obtained even more clients through their contacts, and their contacts... and so on! The YDV listings are effective and if you apply diligently, you will get clients fast! I even continue to subscribe to the Your Daily Vitamin even though I have a full work load. I never know when a job listing will call my name or when I might consider taking on subcontractors to build my empire. I am always open to receiving new clients!
The first time I talked to Galena was my first day in a new Facebook group. I asked a question, she gave me a thorough and honest answer to that question, and I've been working with her every chance I got ever since.
Her coaching style is great! She tells you what you need to hear and then she helps you figure out how to fix it. She’s helped me go from a soft spoken newbie VA to a confident, rock-your-socks off VA in a very short period of time.
The best part is that she’s a real person. She freely admits to the mistakes she made while building her business so that you can avoid them yourself. You can tell that it truly makes her happy to see others succeed.
I highly recommend Galena’s services to anyone starting a VA business, stuck in a rut with their business, and even to seasoned veterans who just need someone to bounce a few ideas off of. She’s a mentor, a coach, and a cheerleader all in one. You won’t be disappointed!!!
I can’t begin to express how grateful I am for the VA Clinic’s Daily Vitamin Job Alerts! I signed up for the alerts 2 years ago and immediately had more opportunities than I could respond to. Within a week I had 6 or 7 offers. I am still with the one I chose 2 years later. My client offers as much work as I can handle at $30 per hour or more depending on the project. I specialize in social marketing so the alerts are effective for specialists as well as generalists. As a solopreneur, the peace of mind knowing that I can always get work through The Daily Vitamin if I need income is a HUGE sense of relief. I highly recommend Galena’s programs to anyone who is looking for freelance VA or social marketing work. A++++++++++
I love your Facebook group for VAs! The involvement and input is amazing. Lots of helpful, informative discussion and the occasional wander off topic is what makes it fun and lighthearted, a welcome break in a heavy day. And Galena, you're great at keeping it all under control while encouraging and supporting everyone, thank you!
Everyone needs help in one area or the other - you can't become successful trying to do it all alone. Galena was surprisingly helpful when it came to coming up with a title and tagline for my company. She took my vision and key words to produce an amazing title that I never would have come up with on my own! Strategista and Femmepreneur Revolution are perfect for representing my brand as something that my ideal client will LOVE. <3 I just wanted to let you know that you are truly great at what you do and have an amazing talent. I would definitely recommend your services to any solopreneur struggling with finding the perfect name for their brand. Thank you so much!
To be perfectly honest, I wasn't really sure if having a coach was for me. I'm not a woo-woo type person, I'm more of a bottom line, give-it-to-me-straight kinda chick.
But Galena, I want to thank you so much for your wise counsel and willingness to share what you know. Your advice has been very helpful in finding direction with my business and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with you.
This experience has truly shown me the value of working with a coach! I plan on getting more more 1:1 coaching soon since I now know that having a coach is really what will push me to the next level. Thanks again!!
I have recently taken two training sessions from Galena and as always, her advice, opinions, and guidance are invaluable. Galena is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to training and educating VAs. Without a doubt, taking her training courses and being a part of her Facebook group has helped my VA business tremendously. On top of that, Galena helped me before AND after training. She willingly passes down her expertise & tips openly and freely in the name of helping others succeed. Galena is a name that the VA industry is going to know well as she is an amazing resource for ALL VAs - brand new, just getting going, or looking to move to the next level! Thank you again Galena for all of your help… You are HIGHLY recommended!
Probably the one thing everyone asks about when they talk about becoming a VA is: "How do I find clients?" There are so many ways! A major part of my system for finding clients is responding to RFPs (requests for proposals) and Job Postings. If someone's posting a request, you KNOW that person needs help and they know they need help! A big part of the battle is already won. But you can't get this client if you don't see their listing. Since I'm no longer accepting new clients except by referral, YOU can take advantage of my existing job alerts system. For just $19.95 per month, you'll have tons of VA job listings from people ready to hire headed directly to your inbox soon after being posted - the optimal time to respond. I even network with people specifically to create listings that aren't on the web - they ONLY go to this list! The average is more than 1 new job per business day. And unlike other similar services, you pay me no fee if the client hires you! What you do with the listings is up to you. Think of it like a daily vitamin for your VA biz. :)
