I'm Ready

But let's get real. Right now, life might feel a bit like this


✖️ Broken by your daily commute and crazy expectations at work.

✖️ Exhausted of workplace politics and petty gossip

✖️ Bored to the back teeth of doing a job you don't care about

✖️ Sick of asking for holiday leave and having to fit round everyone else’s plans.

✖️ Desperate to quit your job but terrified of not making enough money to survive.

✖️ Working stupid hours and missing out on precious family time that you just won’t get back.

✖️ Guilty about dosing your kids up with Calpol so they can attend school or nursery because you just can't miss another day of work.

✖️ Dreaming of the freedom and independence that comes with self-employment yet feeling like it's an unrealistic dream. 


 âœ–️ Working so hard that you deprioritise exercising, hobbies and even sleep. Your physical and emotional health have never been worse.

✖️ Snapping at your partner, kids and family because no you're continuously exhausted by the juggle.

✖️Downloading every freebie you see and hoping they will magically solve all your problems.

✖️ Simultaneously envying and admiring other self-employed people. If only you could be like them!

✖️ Having no idea what services to offer and whether people would even want to hire you in the first place.

✖️ Flummoxed by the idea of how much to charge potential clients (and terrified they wouldn’t pay you anyway).

✖️ And above all, you’re ready, (so, so ready) to make a change but don’t know where to begin.


You know something needs to change, but you’re just not sure what. Or how!


This is me. I'm in!

“I could not be happier. Steph is so supportive and always on hand to answer any, and help with, any questions or issues”

- Caroline


I know exactly what your going through 


It frustrates the 💩 out of me when being a VA is sold as an ‘easy’ way to make a living. Some ‘experts’ say that all you need is a laptop and smartphone to make a living and find financial freedom. 

But that’s a load of rubbish.

Being a high-quality virtual assistant is hard work. But it’s also immensely rewarding if you get it right. And trust me, to get it right you need more than a laptop! 



I’ve gone through the process of becoming a VA, supported the VAs in my agency, and mentored virtual assistants at the start of their careers. And I’ve seen the same things time and time again. So believe me, there’s very little that surprises or shocks me.

Truth bomb - you’ll face a whole lot of bumps in the road when you become self-employed. 


When I first started out there was almost no help and I made a LOT of mistakes. Things were definitely not plain sailing. It was a lot of fun, but I’d have grown more quickly if I had had the right support. It could also be isolating. I didn’t know many other VAs and it wasn’t as if I could reach out to ask my clients to tell me what I should do!

The Timpi Essentials programme is my way of bringing these learnings to life - sharing the mistakes I made when setting up my own business, all at an accessible price and on a complete-at-your-own-pace timescale.
