YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Maria Carras
CEO, Maria Carras Creative

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by -- and congratulations on taking the first step to creating a lifestyle you love and a business that fulfills you.

I started my career working in the film industry in London, managing PR and awards campaigns for high-profile films such as The Tourist with Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, Academy Award winner for Best Film The Hurt Locker and other box office hits such as Rush and Paddington. 

When life brought me back to my hometown of Athens, Greece, I left a thriving career behind to start anew in a flailing economy (it was the height of the Greek economic crisis and jobs were non-existent). After applying to numerous positions within the Greek film industry with no luck, I came to the conclusion that I had to take matters into my own hands and create my own job.

Researching options online, I came across the term 'Virtual Assistant' on a job board. I had no idea what that term meant, but a quick Google search revealed that a virtual assistant was someone who assisted others in their businesses in a variety of ways -- virtually. Looking at the job descriptions, I was amazed to see that these were all things I already knew how to do: data entry, google research, updating social media or blog posts -- and people were willing to pay me to do them!

The idea of working from home -- in my own time and in the comfort of my own space, setting my own hours, my own rates and choosing to do work that I actually enjoyed -- really appealed to me!

GOT QUESTIONS? I'VE GOT ANSWERS.
 

1. Do I need to have prior admin experience to be a Virtual Assistant?
Absolutely not. You can become a virtual assistant and start charging clients today for skills you already have. I'll show you how.

2. I won't be able to join all the live presentations. Will I fall behind?
If you can't make any of the live presentations, not to worry! There will be replays available of the presentations and the Q&A sessions. We will email these to you.

3. How do I access the courses and materials?
The presentations, worksheets and learning materials will be available within a password protected learning platform to access whenever you please. You will have lifetime access to these materials and all new materials added in the future.

4. When do classes start?
The first live presentation takes place on Tuesday 17 October. You will receive all learning materials via email on Monday 16 October to be prepared for the class the next day. All learning materials will be shared with you the day before the live presentation.

5. Can I get a refund if I find the classes aren't relevant for me?
I'm happy to refund students within 1 week of class starting on October 16 if they find that the content or my teaching style is not suited to them.
