What Students Are Saying...

Emma Collier
Virtual Assistant

I was blown away by the quality of information and attention to detail DNK provided, as well as the incredible community of people it connected me to. In just 5 days, I became a lot clearer about what I had to offer my clients, and how to ask for what I was worth. I joined their paid program after the challenge and, within the first few days, negotiated a great deal with a former employer to do VA work for them!

Easily one the greatest investments you could make if you are looking to make the jump to virtual assistance. Hannah is a fantastic mentor and she's created such an amazing network that you never feel alone or in the dark.
