Members of the Introvert VA Club have been busy starting new businesses or expanding their current businesses. We have more members, training, and opportunities than ever before!
My team and I are working hard to provide the highest quality resources for our members based on our own experiences, changes in the online world, and frequently asked questions from our VAs. I’ve put together a list for you of everything we added in 2021. There’s even a sneak peek at what’s coming in 2022!

2 Year Anniversary
🥳 In April, we celebrated the second anniversary of IVC with an introvert-friendly party on Voxer, awarding the 2nd annual Sparkly Unicorn Award, a scavenger hunt for prizes, and a raffle for a free 1-hour coaching session with me
Open Office Hours
🦄 We had open office hours over Voxer where members got one-on-one time with me. This is something we plan to do again in 2022.
🙌 We have a Get Clients Fast Challenge that’s available in IVC anytime members need to find some clients, but in January we did a successful live version of the challenge that included group coaching over Voxer.
🌟 We shared 71 job opps from business owners looking to hire VAs. These job announcements come from our Hire a VA Service and are only available to IVC members. This is where a lot of our members find their first clients! We 💗 helping our members find clients!
Fun Community Update
🌈 Since our community is within the membership platform (and not on Facebook) I was able to add some fun badges and ranks. I like to think of them as stickers you earn when you interact with other members. Everyone raves about our supportive community!
A Sneak Peek at 2022
🔥 I like to release 1-2 pieces of new or updated content each month, so members always have something new to learn for their business or offer as a service to their clients. Here’s a list of new content coming down the pipeline in 2022:
