Top Courses for Virtual Assistants and Bloggers
So you have decided to become a Virtual Assistant and Blogger, or you are one already and want to become even more kick ass!
Way. to. go!
I relied heavily on Pinterest and the trainings from other Bloggers and Virtual Assistants when I started out and had to look in 100 different places.
That's why I wanted to pull a bunch of the top courses for Virtual Assistants and Bloggers together here, so you can find them all in one place.
Time is typically of the essence, especially if you are a busy mamma (like me) trying to run your V.A. Biz with kiddos running around.
Hopefully I can save you some time!

How to choose courses for Virtual Assistants and Bloggers
This is just a word of advice, it probably relates a little more to paid courses, but is still applicable to free courses since you want to make sure you are getting information from a reliable source! I want you to have access to the best courses for Virtual Assistants and Bloggers.
What I mean is that, if you are considering taking a course on Pinterest, make sure that the person teaching it has a huge following.
Also make sure to actually look and see how popular their pins are.
If they have 20,000 followers but have very little re-pins, something might not be quite right!
Make sure to check out their actual blog board.
This is likely the very first board they have listed and should have pins from all of their blog posts.
This will give you a huge indication of how much people like their content and how well they do on Pinterest.
The same goes for the other social media platforms.
Just remember, when choosing courses for Virtual Assistants, make sure you are getting them from a reliable source.
Free Courses vs. Paid Ones
I have taken a lot of free courses for Virtual Assistants and Bloggers and I have also taken paid ones. With that experience under my belt, I just want to set some realistic expectations for you.
You won't go from zero to hero with free courses.
The point of them is to give you a good starting point and they are usually provided as a take off point for a paid course.
The paid courses I've included here are being recommended because I have either paid and taken the course myself or they are administered by a top notch expert in that field and therefore I trust them.
Something you should really look for when purchasing a course is the refund policy.
I haven't had to ask for a refund yet, but it's good to know it's there in case you really don't feel like you learned much in the course.
It's nice to know your investment is protected.
My Course Strategy
I know it's probably going to be tempting to jump at a bunch of courses at once, especially the free ones.
Can I make a suggestion?
Take one a time and give them your full attention. Once you have completed one and applied all of the tips and tricks, then move on to the next one.
Taking a bunch at once will flood your inbox and make it a lot less likely that you will really retain the information.
Not to mention, you will probably be very busy with clients and at least for the time being, that should be your number one priority.
