The BEST Investment I've Ever Made in My Business! By: Lori McLean @ Tandem Business Group
I was very excited to have the opportunity to learn directly from a leader in the VA industry, Michelle Mangen. Instantly I was amazed by how approachable she was because in my mind, she was practically a celebrity! We had a small class, but we really bonded during that 6 weeks, and continue to do so nearly 6 months later. During the course, Michelle assured us that no question was silly and she went into great detail in answering them. I truly am grateful for the ongoing relationship we share and although the course ended months ago, I don't hesitate to reach out to Michelle for support, advice, feedback or whatever. I consider her to be my mentor and she has been invaluable to my growth in this industry. If you are serious about having a successful, long-lasting business as a Virtual Assistant, you MUST take this course. I promise it will be the best investment you can make in your success!
Get in on the Jump Start By: Mary Lisa Irizarry @ Thrive Virtual Business Solutions
This class was the best money I could of spent for my business. Anyone starting a VA business needs to take this class. I spent countless hours trying to do it on my own, and I was all over the place. It was very overwhelming. The ebook was full of everything you could possibly need, and added bonuses. Michelle was fantastic. She put everything in perspective. In what order you should do things, how to do them, and a bunch of great tools. Michelle is so genuine that you want to engage, and find out all you can, and you gain confidence that you can succeed. Most of all she shared her experiences which got her to where she is today. Another great part of the class is you gain a whole new network of VA "friends". Everyone is always willing to help the other out. If you get the opportunity you should take this class. It was very informative and a great experience. Thanks Michelle, and everyone in the class.

Another valued aspect of taking the class is the interaction you not only have with Michelle but with your fellow virtual assistant in the class. By far, a highly recommended class.
Virtual Assistant Jump Start with Michelle Mangen By: Carol Trauthwein @ Essential Business Solutions
This six-week comprehensive program is well taught by Michelle Mangen! The information she shared is proving to be invaluable to this newbie in the virtual assisting business. I have 20+ years in the bookkeeping and administrative arena, however, all of that time has been spent in a traditional office setting. One of the areas Michelle spent a lot of time on was educating us on the social media aspects of running your own business in today's electronic world, along with the value of using various social media avenues to garner and assist your clients in growing their businesses. Michelle created a climate of support among herself and the student group by offering a private facebook group and sharing of resources through Google Drive documents. Even though this class is officially ended Michelle's support goes on as she continues to make herself available! This class will give anyone who takes it a confidence that is necessary to seek this exciting avenue of virtual assisting!
Excellent! By: Jacqueline Roche
I thought Michelle was VERY informative in her delivery of the class. She gave plenty of resources (sometimes overwhelmingly) but this is not a bad thing. She always gave adequate amounts of time for question and answer. The only drawback was the annoyance of the technology as it was buggy. But that is our world today. I highly recommend Michelle for future classes!

Become A Virtual Assistant Jumpstart class By: Kate Edgar @ Supporting Your Success
More than a resource (as the prefix here suggests), the Virtual Assistant Business Jumpstart course with Michelle Mangen is based on VAF's book, Become a Virtual Assistant. This 6 week course is chock full of so many tips, suggestions, resources, web links, and great guidance for starting out as a virtual assistant. Michelle is one of the most generous, upbeat, and dedicated people you can imagine and she just also happens to have one of the most successful VA businesses around. She is knowledgeable about everything to do with working virtually; it's quite mind-boggling what she knows! Thanks Michelle for giving us our start and continuing to be a resource, supporter, and friend!
Magnificent Michelle Mangen! By: Alice Victory Spencer @ Added Hours
I want to be Michelle when I grow up! This class was awesome. Michelle's experience and expertise were extremely helpful in getting my business set up.
I loved having the small class and being able to get to know my lovely classmates was wonderful.
Michelle went above and beyond what I had expected, not only did we have weekly live classes, she took the time to regularly interact with us, answer questions and provide suggestions, via email and private forum.
Even now that class has (sadly) been over for a few weeks, she checks in on us regularly and is genuinely interested in our successes and lends a sympathetic ear to challenges.
The investment I made in Michelle's Jumpstart Class was well worth the money. I encourage all new VA's, or even those who need help with their business to seriously consider taking this class. You won't regret it!
Virtual Assistant Business Jumpstart with Michelle Mangen - Course Review By: Valerie Alba @ Valerie L. Alba Virtual Assistance LLC
The 6 weeks of online instruction, the Become a Virtual Assistant eBook and 35 editable sample contracts, business templates, and worksheets are invaluable assets and are well worth the cost of the course alone. But to have the expertise, advice and tips from an established six-figure VA is priceless. Michelle is very knowledgeable, friendly and outgoing. She spoke in a manner we could understand but did not talk down to us. She took her time addressing and answering all of our questions, even if we went off topic (which we did at times)! She was very patient and covered every segment of the course and was respectful of our time.
The additional support and camaraderie we received in a private Facebook group was the greatest bonus. We all felt like we made new friends and mentors and now have a small group we can share ideas and just vent with if we have a bad day or feel unsure about our choices.
This course definitely helped to "Jumpstart" my business!
What are you waiting for? By: Kayla Williams @ The Support Hive, LLC
If you're hesitating to start your VA business, or you're looking for some advice as a newbie, I can not recommend this course enough! Not only are the course materials worth every penny of the cost, but the relationships you build with Michelle and the other participants are invaluable resources you'll carry with you for your entire VA career!
Michelle is an enthusiastic, real teacher. From the beginning I felt that she is sincerely invested in my success and wanted me to be my very best. Learning from her helped me avoid some of the pitfalls start-up VAs face. After taking the class, I feel more comfortable in my own ability to succeed.
Working from home and starting out can make you feel very alone. Taking this course opened my eyes to the wonderful community of support available here on the forums.
Review VA Business Jumpstart with Michelle Mangen By: Steph Ritz @ Virtual Lefty
This course helped me build a strong foundation for business ownership. Michelle makes class fun and exciting, while still effectively passing along skills and knowledge. She’s a great teacher with real life experience, and has a talent for making concepts understandable. The time & effort the instructor dedicated was pretty extraordinary. She gave us a wide range of tools and helped us to implement them successfully.
Jumpstart Class - Five Stars!! By: Patricia
This class is a valuable investment in your business. Yes, a lot of this information can be found on the internet. How much is your time worth? Just like we tell our potential clients, my time can be better spent focusing on the aspects of my business that only I can do than spending hours pulling all of this information together. To have an experienced VA like Michelle basically hand you the foundation of your business all in one place is invaluable. Real life experience, templates that you can modify to suit your needs, information about proven applications that are used in her business...seriously.
‘Jumpstart’ is not an exaggeration. As if this weren’t enough you get one on one communication with Michelle. She will be your biggest cheerleader! It is also so reassuring to have contact with others in the
class who are learning along with you. This can be an isolating career choice and it’s wonderful to be part of a ready-made group to bounce things off of and share your fears, dreams and accomplishments.
