Charlotte and VIP VA have been fundamental to my business growth.
After discovering the organisation after 6 months of going solo, my business grew from strength to strength and I wouldn’t be where I was today without the help from Charlotte and the VIP VA community. I’d recommend for anyone who is serious about their VA business to check out the community and see the potential for themselves – you won’t regret it!

I am often asked by new or aspiring VAs for my insight into how to get started and always suggest that, before they do anything else, to find APVA to connect with Charlotte and the amazing community she has created. I was introduced to APVA very early on in my VA journey and it made a profound impact on my business and general mindset over-night. Charlotte is head and shoulders above the rest of the pack in leading the way on transforming the VA industry and raising both the profile of VAs but also the standard that clients should expect. As a member, I am privileged to have even more access to Charlotte's laser-like business coaching, master-class tutorials on anything from GDPR through to imposter syndrome, there are client matching opportunities and incredible discounts on services, plus I get to chat, collaborate, share success and ask for guidance/support with some of the most inspiring, collaborative, intelligent and professional business owners I have ever encountered - I display my APVA Founding Members badge with pride and honour.

What Our Members Are Saying…
‘Becoming a VIPVA Mastermind member has completely changed my business for the better. The accreditation criteria pushed me to get certain parts of my business operations up to standard very quickly and the continued support and advice you get from the team is second to none. In the six months I’ve been a member I’ve gained three new clients thanks to the introductions made by team VIPVA and the business profile I have on the VIPVA website. I wholeheartedly recommend applying to be a member if you’re ready to take the next step forward with your VA business’
I just wanted to say a huge thanks to VIP VA. I had my first session today with the gorgeous new retainer client that you introduced me to. Also, thanks to you I managed to get on a fabulous presentation skills course which was totally amazing.
I found VIP VA and I am so pleased I did. I am part of the member community and everyone is so supportive and helpful. I had a successful business before being a member but I didn’t want to stay where i was i wanted more and VIP VA has given me that. Thank you Charlotte
Charlotte has created a fantastic place for high quality VA’s to hang out and be part of a bigger team. Her members group is by far the biggest asset to her business, along with the other amazing value she gives, such as webinars, accreditation, and coaching.
I wouldn’t be where I am now without VIP VA, and highly recommend anyone wanting to be part of a high level team, gets involved now.
You want support and nurture? You’ve got it and a whole host more.
Charlotte is a fantastic Business Coach and a driving force behind elevating standards in the Virtual Assistant industry. I’m thrilled to have become a fully accredited member of VIP VA and can’t thank her enough for her continued, invaluable support in helping me to build my virtual businesses. Charlotte’s VIP VA members’ group is fantastic community of inspirational Virtual Assistants, each with different backgrounds, skill-sets and personalities – it’s a great pool of knowledge and collaboration and life just wouldn’t be the same without it!
I’ve been a member of VIP VA since I started my VA journey. It is my go to community for help and support. The facebook group has a friendly and positive feel about it. I get a lot from the lives that Charlotte does on key subjects and how supportive she is. Would defo recommend to anyone thinking about becoming a VA and existing VA’s. Keep up the fab work team!
While I love being a VA, one of the down sides is the solitary nature of the role, being part of VIP VA enables you to link up with like-minded professional VAs who are proud of what we do.
I am enjoying being part of both the Members Club and the Hub, picking up hints and tips and interacting with everyone. Both Charlotte and Amanda are hugely supportive and I am very much looking forward to being part of the journey for VIP VA.
I have already recommended colleagues to the Hub and when Virtual Angels are in need of support, we won’t have to look very far to find great associates!
Although I’ve previously declined to join any other VA organisations, when I heard that Amanda Slack and Charlotte Wibberley were setting up VIP VA, I decided that I wanted to be a part of it from the outset. The key thing for me is the excellent online peer support – the job can be quite solitary, working in a remote office and sometimes not seeing anyone for several days. Sometimes I also need guidance and advice from other VAs, both new and old, as to how to go about solving a particular issue, whether it’s technical or resource-related. Hopefully I’m able to help others myself too. It’s just great feeling part of a community that’s focused on quality and support. When I’m looking for new top class Associate VAs to join my team, VIP VA will be the first place I’ll search! I highly recommend VIP VA
