Brittany quit her day job within 1 month of completing the course!
Maria has absolutely amazing trainings!
It is never too early to start investing in training, and this training is 200% worth it. You will start your business off in the right direction, on the right foot.
Hannah earned her investment back 9x over in 1 month!
I started out not knowing which direction to go with my virtual assistant business. After having an hour strategy session with Maria I knew which way to take my virtual assistant business. With Maria's guidance I have gone from zero clients to a team. If it was not for her advice, encouragement, and, sometimes, a little tough love I would not be where I am today. She knows the right questions to ask to get you to your goals, through your goals, and beyond those goals. She is hands down one of the most amazing people in the industry.
Course & Coaching Student
Michelle started working with her ideal client 2 weeks into the course!
Maria is incredibly talented and a natural coach. Her guidance challenged me to get out of my comfort zone, look beyond the day to day and focus more on building a business that would incorporate all my passions and strengths. Her knowledge and willingness to connect me to her network garnered me my first client within our first few weeks working together. Her uplifting, positive, and fun personality make her easy to open up to and wonderful to work with. She has not only been an amazing coach but also a caring mentor, and the lessons she has provided have inspired and motivated me to live a life aligned with my values and passions. Maria is truly one-of-a-kind, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an intuitive, sincere, and deeply passionate coach.

Your new biz BFFs are waiting for you! 👯♀️
Hello, hello! You're probably wondering why I'm the best person to teach you how to be an awesome VA. Well, here goes...
I started my business as a virtual assistant back in 2012 and eventually turned my one-woman show into an agency, Maria Carras Creative supporting coaches, creatives and online educators with their admin, marketing and copy needs.
I've worked with lots of different clients all over the world in a variety of different industries and I've learnt loads along the way.
Now I'm sharing everything I know in my private membership, The Inner Circle, including what it takes to build a business that supports your family and the lifestyle of your dreams.
Over the years, we've helped dozens of virtual assistants find their ideal clients and have matched over 200+ businesses with virtual assistants from The Inner Circle.
