We've been there

Here's real world education for the next level.


We can't wait to guide you

DCA isn’t over yet, but I've made 4200 so far and officially made my investment back this week!!! Wooo!! When I get fully booked out I should be making 4500 a month off of client work!!


YESSS! Quit my corporate job the month I started DCA. I have not only made my DcA investment back, BUT also have gotten back the investments made with the Digital Millennials Masterclass , the 60 min. strategy call, your PDF Guide, the small courses I bought in between AND saved money on top of that. My mindset now has been opened up to seeing the possibilities I didn't know were possible.

okay you guys! i just got my first client! i’m getting paid to work online and it’s week two! whaaaat?! it’s actually happening!


I was trying to DIY being a VA and not making any traction with clients. Between the modules, coaching, and guest speakers, it felt like a secret sauce that unlocked my potential for my business. My first reel after starting DCA got me client inquiries, and I had posted several before. in week 10, I was able to resign from my teaching job for the next school year!


I was able to quit my 9-5, replace my corporate income and make MORE, grow my confidence within my work, meet new people, make amazing connections and it really opened my eyes to the possibilities and growth that I can see in myself and my business. It was entirely worth the investment and the best thing I have ever done!

DCA has truly set me up for the rest of my life. I know that's such a huge statement but it's true. Being apart of DCA took a distant dream of mine to a reality and completely changed the course of my future for the better. Being confident when I say that I'm SUCCESSFUL and I LOVE my job is the biggest win of my life so far.

I was very hesitant to invest in this program because I wasn't sure if I would follow through with it and if it would be worth it. But I have no regrets!! it was so worth it. it's honestly amazing and I think it’s the best route to take if you want to invest in yourself and start your business online. seriously, a life changing program.


Desk job burnout to digital biz maven

jess hawks | coach

Growing up in a small town, I never questioned that I would graduate high school and move straight into college. Reality hit when the allure of finishing my degree wore off and I dropped out, knowing exactly what I didn’t want to do.

I stumbled across the role of a Virtual Assistant in a late-night scroll. Job flexibility and working with whatever clients you want? It felt too good to be true... Honestly, I also didn’t have anything to lose. I took the plunge and created a Virtual Assistant business for wedding creatives and in half a year, I was hitting $9k months.

this is not for you if…

You’re ready to dive into the Virtual Assistant industry and want a solid roadmap for scaling your income sustainably.

You’re looking to invest in a quality educational experience that hands you every tool you’ll need to get started.

You’re a self starter with a bold drive to leave your career comfort zone and expand into a new job.

You’re looking for live support, direct 1:1 feedback and a peer group giving you accountability.

You’re looking for a low-investment education that allows you to dabble in committing to a new career idea.

You struggle with procrastination and don’t feel driven to leave your current job, even if it means more income. 

You’re already a pro at working online in a niche VA industry and have solid skills in business software and sales.

Our last round of DCA has officially closed BUT there's no need to worry! Our team is working behind the scenes to craft a new blueprint that you're not gonna want to miss 👀

What’s the format?

This is a 10 week live course with 1:1 coaching and group classes. You’ll also receive chat support M-F in our private Slack channel.

What is the difference between this education and Digital Millennials Masterclass?

This is a 10 week intensive focusing on live education with in depth trainings and 1:1, personalized guidance. Digital Millennials Masterclass is also live education, but it’s a 4 hour training focused on the fundamentals of becoming a virtual assistant and finding your niche.

Who are the guest educators?

Guest educators are hand picked for their industry expertise, approachable teaching style and depth of knowledge.

When does enrollment open again?

Enrollment is open for the next round! Hop on the waitlist and you’ll get notified. If you secure your spot for a future round of DCA and a spot opens up in an earlier round, we'll be reaching out via email to move you up!

How can I show my parents/partner the value in investing in this career switch?

Ultimately, the value in building a career on your own terms will always come back to the freedom it gives you and the people you love. It’s not just the ability to grow your income beyond your hourly wage at a 9-5, it’s the freedom to create your own schedule, to travel and enjoy life outside of work. 

Do I need to have a specific background in order to be a successful VA?

Not at all! From Starbucks baristas to entry level corporate roles, our graduates have come from all sorts of backgrounds. The big benefit in your unique background is that it can truly help you in finding your niche in the VA industry.

Can I do this course on my own time?

You’ll have lifetime access to all class recordings, but we strongly encourage you to attend live if you can to truly get the most out of your experience. But we've had students working 9-5s and getting degrees while taking DCA!

What’s the refund policy?

Like most online, live education, this program is non-refundable. Not sure if it’s right for you? Drop us a line at to chat.
