It’s common to fall into your career accidentally. You get one job that leads to another that leads to another and before you know it, you’re pigeonholed in that industry for the rest of your working life. 

You spend your day counting down the hours until home time, scrolling job adverts, moaning to your friends and family. You can’t see how to take control of your life, of your career or how to shake it up. 

This course can help...

You see, there is an answer.

It's in the back of your mind all the time.

But you're intimidated, you don't know how to make it happen.

The answer is to be your own boss.

Run your own business.

Control what you do, when you do it and who you do it with.

It sounds like a fantasy, and if you don't do anything that's what it will be.

BUT I'm here to tell you that you can make it happen.

You just need a little bit of help.

...and here's how👇🏻👇🏻

Let me properly introduce myself...

I’m Amy Lester, Start-Up & Virtual-Assistant Mentor. I live just outside Birmingham, UK in a tiny village with one shop.

With over a decade of experience in Business Administration, Operations and Marketing, I’ve seen it all. I work with my clients on regaining their time so they can focus on taking their business to the next level. 

I've been in a job I ended up hating, hitting a glass ceiling and wished the things in this course were handed to me when I first started out. I’ve designed this course to share my experiences with you and help you from making the mistakes I’ve seen. 

I’ve seen the pros and cons of start-up life and have lived through what works, and what doesn’t.

This course is a goldmine for knowledge, worksheets, templates and plenty of tips that I've learned along the way!

You'll also get advice from these experts...
