Why should I attend?
Everyone knows an event like this just doesn’t keep coming back over 20 times in a row if there isn’t a bloody good reason. You’ll learn strategies, tips, tools and mind-shift trends to help your VA business grow faster into the work-at-home empire of freedom, financial security and flexibility you surely deserve.
I have met many awesome, educated, savvy, engaging business professionals in my life who understand the way a Virtual Assistant works being I’m the market leader in the VA industry since 2003. During VAvirtuosos, I present a speaker stage of engaging Freelancers who currently run a successful service-based business or have in their past. Entrepreneurs who have already gone through the bumps and grinds of getting their business going and have figured out what works and what doesn’t work in their business to share with their peers. Who better to learn from? 😉
Should I attend even if I haven't started my VA business?
YES! It will inspire you to jump off the fence and start working on getting your new VA business up and running. Listen to what Joseph Holmin had to say about this…
As someone who is just now embracing the field of Virtual Assisting, I was wide-eyed and didn’t know what to expect. I’ve been studying virtual assisting for a few months now on my own. I attended the whole week, all 20 speakers presentations. I gained more insight and did more learning in the 20 hours of sharing that I had done in my previous 3 months on my own. The teachings from all the speakers were exceptional. If you didn’t learn something, you weren’t really there! I was able to get a VIP Ticket. So I have access to the notes, the recordings and all the goodies the speakers gave away! The amount of valuable, useful, applicable information was given… well, there’s just no way for me to put a definite dollar amount on that. So I guess what I got was INVALUABLE! I’ve already decided to make VAVS a mandatory part of my business model and ongoing education. Thank you to all the wonderful speakers and Tawnya at VAnetworking.com for the dedication to further the VA industry by any means necessary!
What if I've been in business as a VA for years, will #VAVS benefit me too?
Yes, whether you’ve been in business for 3 or 15 years, you will learn strategies that you can implement into your business right away. I’ve been in business for 20+ years and every season I have a notebook full of new ideas for my business.
Listen to what Alicia Jay who has been in business for years has to say about #VAVS
From the perspective of being a speaker (she’s spoken at our event 6 times now) as well as an attendee, VAVS is one of my absolute favorite events! Tawnya and her team do an incredible job of selecting topics that are important and timely for the VA community as well as keeping things running smoothly. Besides the actionable info I take away from each speaker session, the networking that happens in between is wonderful. There’s always info for new and seasoned VAs at this event. It’s such a cost-effective way to advance your business!
Paula Cole-Miller states…What you offer seasoned VAs like myself trying to enter this arena, is absolutely phenomenal! The amount of information and resources you so freely share is highly commendable! I feel like I have finally “broken through the membrane” of whatever has been trying to “railroad” my success and I know that my perseverance will absolutely pay off! I am so ready to go to the next level of implementation, even though I still have a lot of information to digest, but you have to start somewhere, right! I have begun to take advantage of the training programs that I became aware of through your site, as well as signed up for the Facebook page and the Linkedin page! I am ready to fully commit to being an active participant and a good protégé! All of my interactions with your organization have been positive and supportive, and that speaks volumes to me!
I can't attend LIVE, will the event be recorded?
Yes, we record all 20 webinars and if you purchase a VIP ticket you will get access to these recordings to watch when your schedule allows you to learn. Free Ticket holders do not get the recordings.
Beth Berry states…I always get incredibly useful information. I refer back to the various videos and my notes over the following months. It’s great to have a reliable resource to make sure I’m up to date as well as tips and information to refer back to when I need to add a client, update my skills or need some website tricks. Tawnya and Danielle are lovely people who seem to take great joy in the success of others.
I can't make it this time, when will you be hosting #VAVS again?
This event happens once a year usually in the Fall. If you can’t make this season then I encourage you to buy a VIP Ticket (with the recordings) so that you can watch them later on when you have time.
Attending your industry conference should be a part of every Virtual Assistant’s operations budget! Your business can’t afford to miss out on this yearly, affordable, online training geared for Virtual Assistants no matter what stage you are in their business.
How do I login and attend the Summit or access my VIP Perks
WATCH THIS VIDEO as in it I’ll show you how to login to access the Summit and find all your VIP Perks like the recordings or access to your Swag Bag, etc.
I have been to loads of different trainings through the years and I can honestly say that I have never learned more than I did this week! Not only from the actual presenters, but in between when the speakers, Tawnya and Danielle would ask questions or just openly and freely share tips and ideas and anything and everything! I can honestly say that I came across VA Networking purely by accident–and I waffled for days about attending. It’s the best decision I could have made. I’m looking forward to being a VA Insider and cannot wait to see what else I can learn! Thank you to Tawnya, Danielle and all of the presenters AND the other attendees who share such great information!
Thank you, Tawnya, Danielle, and the Presenters for a fabulous Summit. I am on information overload. I kept thinking with each day, “This is incredible.” There was such an amazing amount of valuable content and business practices shared as well as tremendous motivation and camaraderie. And the Swag Bag! Wow! Thanks to all of the Contributors. Now to filter through everything. Digging in!
I am new to VA world and this was my first summit. Although I was attending these webinars late at night I still don’t regret not sleeping properly. If anything I am glad that I attended and learned so much. I join by chance and it gave me so many great opportunities to meet such great VAs and amazing panelists. Can’t wait to be here next time again. Thank you for an awesome week!
What a week! Amazing hosts and speakers, including pioneers and leaders in the virtual assistant industry. All highly accomplished, respected, and successful in their fields and niches. They presented a wealth of information on things marketing, sales, systems, finances, mindset, and more. Every session was relevant for all VAs – from aspiring to established – looking to improve, grow, and be happier and more successful in their businesses. I came away with enough to explore and implement for an entire year and beyond. Certainly until the next VAVS! I’m so glad I took the time to attend live; it was well worth the commitment. The Q&A, as well as the chats with the speakers, hosts and other attendees, were awesome. I made new and renewed connections. And now I have the recordings and speaker notes for replay and reference. Not to mention the generous speaker, host, and sponsor goodies. VAVS was invaluable, invigorating, and inspiring. Till next year!
I am truly enjoying myself, learning new techniques, getting updated industry information and reconfirming things I already knew. The speakers are ALL Excellent and Experts in their Niche. Thanks for Hosting the #VAVS Symposium Webinar!

Thank you for your hard work creating and facilitating VAVS. I was able to enjoy every day except Friday when other commitments made it impossible. The content was great as was the selection of speakers. Winning a prize wasn’t bad either!

I am writing this to say how much I enjoyed the #VAVS this year. Of all the presentations at #VAVS, The information was extremely informative, detailed, insightful, and highly motivating.
I just want to thank you for the awesome summit – again!! This is my second one, and I have never been disappointed. I already have it marked off in Oct next year, and of course, I plan it in my budget This is more than just business information, it’s like a family reunion!! I’m so sad today is the last day. You two get some rest over the weekend, you certainly deserve it!!
This is a FABULOUS event! The wide range of speakers gives any VA some new tools to improve his/her business. The 2020 event provided great ways to build your business through Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Instagram. There were also some excellent technical sessions on using Canva and WordPress. This is a must-attend for any VA.
The Summit is now over.
BUT for a Limited Time…
For a very low cost, I got an excellent amount of professional education attending the Virtual Assistant Virtuosos. This conference provided a fantastic opportunity to come together with other like-minded enthusiasts in the industry. To be able to hear from experts sharing their experience, leveraging their knowledge and apply the different methods to my business endeavor. What can I say, THANK YOU! All the speakers shared a tremendous amount of knowledge and presented information in a way that is understandable. I took away an incredible amount of info, that will genuinely assist in making my business more successful.
Angela Atanasio Medeiros
I am on day 2 and I have learned a great deal. I am looking at starting up in the new year and the webinars have answered many questions and made me look at things I had no idea about. The online side chats are amazing, especially when the experienced VAs provide tips, tools, and websites…thank you to all and especially Tawnya and Danielle
If I had to describe #VAVS in one word it would be WOW! I gained so much useful information during the week we spent together. The speakers were top notch and personable and very generous with their freebies. I appreciated the extra time they took out of their busy schedules to answer questions and to ‘hang out’.
I have so many takeaways! Following are just a few: think positive about my business, set firm boundaries and office hours, find a referral partner in the same niche but with different skills, it’s possible to have a successful VA business being an introvert, separate your personal and business expenses, start a blog, just start writing and write every day, a blog is the beginning of any successful social media strategy, so many new systems that I can’t wait to look into them all, what it takes to be a Real Estate VA, setting up Facebook Ads, passive income streams, focus and finish my website (Just Do It!) and so much more.
Although I am on the quieter side, a true introvert, I especially enjoyed the discussions, both on topic and off, with the other VA’s. I can’t tell you how happy I am that I took the time and joined #VAVS it was time and money well spent! Tawnya and Danielle are the best!
Vicki Langberg Strategic Solutions
I truly believe that you have outdone yourself! I attended my first VAVS in October and thought, how much more could I hear that I haven’t already heard, but, I HEARD PLENTY at the next VAVS! Not only did you and Danielle put together another flawless conference, but, all the speakers, EVERY ONE, gave us phenomenal information, insight and the desire to learn more and more! I especially liked the “Homework/Accountability Sheet”. It’s a ‘keeper’! The Chat Area enabled us to meet and greet one another, as well as have some good laughs! Thanks again to you, Danielle and all the wonderful presenters. It was well worth the time and money!
Just wanted to say how much I totally enjoyed your event this week. I can’t imagine how much work goes into this! YIKERS! But I really had a blast. I didn’t realize how much I miss these.
First, thank you for being so generous and allowing us to enjoy the entire 5-day VAVS Summit at the Silver level for free! It was an information packed week. I loved how you all worked as a team to deal with the challenges of technology and “life” issues to keep pressing forward. I not only left with a wealth of information but with new colleague contacts from all over the world as well. I also appreciate that I had an opportunity during the week to upgrade to Gold level to receive access to the Swag Bag and recorded videos. Thank you and I look forward to next year!
The summit has been excellent- a wide variety of topics, and great speakers. But the genuine niceness and sense of family/community/uplifting others by Tawnya is perhaps the best feature of all.
This summit was great! Thanks so much for offering the Silver ticket! Without that I would not have been able to attend and learn what I did. I truly enjoyed the “5 Stages of a VA Success Journey” It clarified some things for me. Your summit has added value to my life, given me a few more pieces of the puzzle to put in place to find the best me I can offer. From the marketing seminar I have ideas of services I can add to my general offerings. Kristy’s session at the end was amazing!! I learned so much about myself, she helped me get into the right mindset. She was interesting, thorough, methodical, excited and helped me connect the work that has to be done on myself – putting into words – my vision, my mission, my goals and expanding that to my business vision, mission and goals, seeing how it all fits together, now I can go back and do the work to start my VA business off the right way. Thanks so much for putting this together and being such an incredible host and authentic person.!! Looking forward to continuing to learn and grow!
This was my very first virtual conference ever – what an amazing introduction!! I learned so much and was so impressed with the quality of the presentations. The people I “met” through the chats were so helpful and friendly. It really was so worth the price! I am so thankful for all the hard work Tawnya puts into these conferences.
Just want to say for the past 2.5 years I’ve enjoyed all the relevant knowledge at #VAVS from your membership and will continue to do so for as long as I can. Thank you VA Networking and ALL your staff.
The experts that spoke at the conference this season were superb! Many kudos to each one who presented such information-rich presentations. The only thing left for me to do after such a great conference is put all the tips and tricks to work! Thanks to you, Tawnya, for creating a great way for VAs to connect. Yea, Tawnya! You are awesome!!
Fantastic week. #VAVS was the best ever week of presentations of any kind that I have ever taken. Well worth the price. Love the speakers. Love the presentations. Love the Speakers’ offer. Love love love the chat.
Thank you so much for putting on a great event! I learned a ton from the speakers I’ve watched so far. And these gifts are extremely helpful, too! Thank you!
This was my first time and it was filled with an overwhelming amount of great information and inspiring speakers. I loved how everyone is down to earth and is wanting to do what they can to help each other succeed. I could not watch the live webinars but I wish I could have as the relationship building is so important. Next time for sure. Thank you to all the speakers, Tawnya and to everyone who helped make this event a success. I look forward to the next one!
Thank you for everything this week. It was totally amazing. Every speaker brought their A game. I can’t wait for the next one and would love to speak.
THE SUMMIT IS NOW OVER
BUT for a LIMITED TIME…
The Speaker schedule line-up and/or topics may change at anytime during the event for reasons out of our control (illness, technical issues, etc.). We promise to replace that speaker with another great speaker or topic geared toward Virtual Assistants. Thanks for your understanding.
