As Seen In

 A Career with Endless Benefits

The VA Starter Kit is our signature course for both beginners in the online space and those who are ready to raise the bar and are tired… tired of applying to fruitless low-paid gigs on Upwork, tired of working with clients who aren’t committed to your value. We teach you the stuff that’ll set up you with strong foundations for long-term business success, whether you just want to work from home or want to travel the world!

Virtual Assistance is a profession that is ever-growing in demand, so whether you’re after more autonomy, uncapped earning potential, no max holiday limits or you just want a change from the desk view, this really could be your ticket to freedom.

What Students are Saying…

The VA Starter Kit, changed my life in less than two months!
I was a nomad teaching English online when I lost almost 80% of my students because of the pandemic. I didn’t know how to survive the next month when I found Hannah’s 5-day-VA challenge on Google. I signed up, and after only one week, I had grown so much and came out of my comfort zone. I even made some dear friends there. The investment I made after that, signing up for the VA Starter Kit, changed my life in less than two months! I am now a fully booked Virtual Assistant, already made the money back, and no more worries about making it through the next month.

The VA Starter Kit transformed my life.
By providing us the tools, the energy, explanations, examples of clients expectations and a clear understanding of the digital nomad world, The VA Starter Kit has helped me transform my life in a very short time. I am now visible online and am getting clients enquiries 🙂

The VA starter kit program has proven to be the best investment I’ve ever made.
Signing up for the 5 day VA challenge and later enrolling in the VA starter kit program has proven to be the best investment I’ve ever made.
It gave me the clarity and confidence I needed to start the online career I always wanted. After finishing the course and despite this Covid-19 world crisis, I managed to sign up my first contract with a big client.

Hannah is an amazing mentor and her VA training program is simply the best!

I'm already matching my income a few months down the line!
My contract as an employee didn’t get extended due to the pandemic so it gave me the kick up the butt I needed to take my business full-time and I’m already matching my income a few months down the line!

Elise Velkeneers, Virtual Assistant

I started out at zero income and am at $2000 a month now on a retainer.

It all came about from the original 5 day challenge in March. I followed through on sending out facebook messages and emails to people in my network asking for feedback on the new services I was offering. It worked out that one person responded saying they were opening a new company and launching a new product and could use all of the services I was offering!


Amber Daughn, Virtual Assistant

You never feel alone or in the dark.

Easily one the greatest investments you could make if you are looking to make the jump to virtual assistance. Hannah is a fantastic mentor and she’s created such an amazing network that you never feel alone or in the dark.

COMMUNITY & SUPPORT

Everything you need…

… and nothing you don’t.

The VA Starter Kit is the best place for VAs and digital service providers to find their feet and THRIVE. We don’t have anything in this program that is ‘filler’ content. We provide you exactly what you need to succeed as a VA/Freelancer. Including a kick-ass community that has your back.

We know that your success is based on you having a solid foundation and marketing plan for your business – often the easiest part is doing your client work! You can learn a lot by doing it for yourself as a business owner, and on the job.

Over the years we realized a very clear pattern, that most VA and freelance businesses fail due to poor business planning. This program focuses heavily on the business side of things, from how to find, communicate with, and keep high-quality clients, to contracts, setting boundaries, pricing and marketing yourself in an ongoing and innovative way. Our support community is a place where you’ll find endless inspiration and friendships that’ll be by your side at every stage.

This program is not only packed with everything below, but it’s also updated to include important additions as and when they become necessary, often by popular demand from the community, at no additional cost to you!

Live Q&A Sessions with Hannah
Every two weeks you get the opportunity to ask Hannah anything at all! These sessions are not only educational in nature, but often a really fun occasion for the group to come together.

Hannah is really an open book so not only do we cover VA and freelance business topics, but also the ups and downs of working for yourself. It doesn't get more real than over in the Inner Circle. Some classic Q&A moments: random hot seat invites from Hannah, Hannah falling in a lake live and cartwheel challenges!

👑 The Presidency 👑

Inside the Inner Circle we have an optional fun and educational experience for students. Members can nominate themselves, or another, for the 6 week Inner Circle presidency. During their presidency, the elected candidate has full reign to implement fun initiatives for the group, to support their peers and gain invaluable community management experience - resulting in a testimonial from myself and a platform from which you can make yourself known for collaborations and opportunities! The presidency makes for a unique, collaborative community where no one is left behind 🙂

Popup Co-working

The coolest thing about the Inner Circle is our members! They really take ownership of this community like no other. A recent addition to the group is the occurrence of digital co-working. This has proved insanely beneficial for many members who are getting way more work done with an extra layer of accountability. That's the fun part of being in this group, it's ever-evolving to meet the needs of members at any time.

Monthly Self-Care Sessions

Our resident self-care guru, Kim Gorchs, conducts beautiful, relaxing and restorative self-care sessions for the Inner Circle community. We know that when you become a business owner, it's easy to neglect your physical and mental health while you move forward with excitement. We have always encouraged a holistic move into a career by design, and in order ot fully embody this notion, Kim jumped on board and people LOVE her sessions. Expect yoga, meditation, breath work and plenty of different techniques to help bring you into balance.

And you get ALL of this at no additional cost.

We believe in the power of community when working online, and we are ready to welcome you in with open arms. We pride ourselves on being really community focused and ensure that the group is accessible, so no monthly fees like many other programs our there. We do have a voluntary contribution based-system that anyone is open to take part in down the line, which goes directly towards maintaining this super valuable group.  There's endless power in having this network, from job opportunities, collaborations and access to experts to answer your questions every step of the way.  

Real-life

Meetups & Events

The folks over in the Inner Circle have formed amazing friendships and professional collaborations in a short space of time – and they’re waiting to welcome you in!

In 2018-2019 alone, I personally met with DNK Starter Kit students 48 times – and that’s not counting the student-led meetups across the globe that occurred without me (how rude haha). From Budapest, to Bangkok, Mexico City, NYC, Lisbon and beyond – we’re sprinkled all over the globe. If adventure calls you, they’ll be somewhere to share the experience with.

If you’re after real, living people to support you on your VA and Freelance journey – but also people you could have hangouts and vacations with as you delve into the nomad space. We are your people. We look forward to a fully post-Covid world because the DNK crew like to have FUN!

I started my journey to become a freelancer in 2017. I have learned not to undersell myself in that time and by June 2019 I started making €7500 a month on a six month contract that has already been renewed twice I am feeling very valued by the company I work with and it feels much more like a partnership than a classic employer-employee relationship. It has also given me soooo much freedom to work from wherever I please The DNK community is very valuable to me!
