Grow Your Business & Gain Your Freedom

Escape the cube farm and take back your life!

It's Your Time!

Seriously, aren’t you tired of working for someone else?

Feeling guilty about having to call in sick when your family needs you?

And… the worst part is having someone else own your TIME. It was for me.

Time is limited.

It's something we can't buy or add back.

It just keeps going by and it finally runs out.

How do you want to use your time?

Do you want to use it spinning your wheels trying to get your business started?

Take a moment to really think about it? How does it make you feel?

If you are really ready to make a change, then there is no time like the present to do it.

Trust me… If I was able to start and grow my virtual assistant business while working 50+ hours a week WITH an infant at home… so can you.

I didn't have any business training or online experience, but I had skills and I trusted I could put them to great use. And I did!

I was able to grow a VA business that allowed me to leave the cube farm behind and take control of my time and my life.

You Can Do It!

I’ll share more about me and my story in a bit, first I want to get an idea of where you’re at right now.

Do You Ever Feel...

  • Overwhelmed when you realize all the things you need to do to grow your business?

    If you’ve Googled “Virtual Assistant”, you know there is a ton of information out there about how to do one thing or another. But it’s hard to find a clear direction and strategy for starting your business that is in action size bites to keep you out of overwhelm.

  • Confused about how to start, or what to do first?

    When you listen to too many “experts”… it’s confusing! Each one has a different strategy or system for where to focus and what to do first. You can end up jumping from place to place to find bits and pieces of information but, how do you put it all together?

  • Stuck in analysis paralysis due to too much research and not enough action?

    You know, when you get lost in research making spreadsheets and to do lists to start your business and then… When you put it all together, you’re paralyzed because it’s too much information (TMI). There is too much to do, so you don’t do anything!

  • Nervous about selling yourself or stepping out of your comfort zone?

    Why does selling scare most people? I know it scared me for a long time until I changed my mindset and perspective on selling. If you love to help people, you’re doing them and you a disservice by not selling your expertise. Change it from selling to sharing and it’s not so scary.


I get it… I’ve been in each of these situations myself!
And, I’ve since taught hundreds of virtual assistants and freelancers who were once feeling these same exact things.

But... guess what?

There’s a way to get past these feelings, get unstuck and finally get the results you want.

Just Imagine...

The question is...

How Do You Get There?

When I work with Virtual Assistants & Freelancers,
we focus on 3 key areas...

  • Growing your business

    To grow your business, you need to get in front of the right people. Who are the right people? They’re your target audience, the ones you’re passionate about helping. They need to know you exist and that you can solve their problems. How do you do that? By focusing on giving first. Provide value, share your brilliance and prove you know what you’re talking about. This simple formula gets BIG results.

  • Growing your income

    Too many Virtual Assistant suffer from SOS (Shiny Object Syndrome) or TMI (Too Much Information), I know I was one of them. What do I mean by this? We watch the latest video on “How To…” or listen to too many “experts” telling us different ways to do the same thing instead of taking action. The key to growing your income is focusing on the things that make you money.

  • Growing your mind

    Becoming your own boss is a crash course in personal development and growth. You have to face your fears, move out of your comfort zone, learn new skills and create new habits… not to mention change limiting beliefs. Whew! Going it alone is a rough road and can actual stall your business growth. Being part of a supportive community to help guide you through these life changes can be a huge benefit.

Great... So Where Do You Learn All Of This?

And, how can you learn it using a proven system (rather than a series of overwhelming steps and strategies that you’ve collected that may or may not work when put together). So glad you asked….


The VA Business Academy

A membership site for Virtual Assistants & Freelancers, who want the right strategies, in the right order, to grow a thriving business that gives you the freedom and flexibility you deserve.

In the VA Business Academy you get the exact strategies and steps I used to build a six-figure VA business and grow into a leader in the VA Industry.

And the best part…

It’s a total one-stop shop. Instead of having to purchase two or three different programs, the VA Business Academy membership site is the one place you can find everything you need.


This program is incredibly robust. The amount of handouts, checklists and materials to refer back to is worth their weight in gold. I'm thrilled that I took the plunge and purchased it - this after other programs fell flat. I can always count on Susan putting out a quality product.

Here's how it works...

The VA Business Academy is an ongoing membership site.

Which means you get access to my entire library of business & skills training specifically designed for Virtual Assistants. As long as you remain a member of the program.

Susan, this program has been instrumental in getting me focused on where I need to be and what I need to know. As I mentioned before, I was all over the place ... going in circles and on information overload. It has been a huge relief. I have already learned so much. Thank you so much Susan!!

Okay, so what’s it going to cost?

On average my online courses costs around $300. And working with me on an ongoing basis is at least $2,000.

But, in The VA Business Academy you have access to all my business training courses, covering a whole range of topics that are vital to your success.

If I were to offer this as a course (which I did previously), it would be priced at $1,000 for all the training, tools and support you get inside the Academy.

But, I wanted to create something that would make the training accessible to more people and provide the ongoing support so many solopreneurs need.

So... you're not going to pay $1,000 or $500.

Because I'm making your membership in the VA Business Academy available for only $48.00 per month!

Or, if you want to get two months free, you can join for a whole year for only $489.00.

This program is awesome! If you're spinning your wheels trying to figure out how to get a VA business started, then this program is for you! Susan takes you through step-by-step. I would have been lost with out it. Thanks Susan!!

      Who Am I?

      I'm Susan Mershon... The Techie Mentor

      Hi, I’m Susan, someone who never thought about being an entrepreneur until life gave me an unexpected gift.

      I've been where you are. Trying to start a VA business in your off hours while still having a life.

      I built my entire VA business from scratch while working in a 50+ full time corporate career with an infant at home! If I can do it - so can you.

      There are specific challenges to starting your VA business while employed... I know!  I created a system that will help you quickly get started, get clients & stay busy so you can quit your job and start living the lifestyle you are meant to live!

      Sign up now - Enrollment closes soon!

          It's Decision Time

          Option #1: You could continue trying to figure this out on your own. I won't say this method doesn't work - it's what I did. But I wish I had found this type of training when I was first starting out, instead of using the trial and error methods. I would have been able to leave the cube farm sooner!

          This method is slower, overwhelming, confusing and much more painful! There are many who make it on this journey but there are even more who give up.

          Option #2: Or... you could join a group of like minded go-getters who are looking to make their dreams of owning their own business come true, leaving the cube farm, traveling, or whatever their dream may be.

          If you've dreamed of having a business that gives you freedom & flexibility to do what you want, when you want, then take this opportunity.

          If you're tired of another month or six months going by without seeing any progress, then I'll see you in the Academy.
