Does your Virtual Assistant / Virtual Business Manager empire need more clients?
Do you want to make your business your full time career?
Maybe you want to get to the point where you’re using associates?
Do you keep downloading all the free advice out there but seem to make little progress?
You’re in the right place!
My Private Members’ Club is for you!
Membership is just £35 a month
Run by me, Catherine Gladwyn, the Private Members’ Club gives you access to my private supportive Facebook group, exclusive training webinars, live audits, courses and resources to help you build and grow your business.
I’m a full time Virtual Assistant myself, so my advice is up-to-date and relevant in today’s business world!
I’ll never recommend anything that I haven’t tried out myself.
‘I am 100% certain that joining this group has elevated my growth. I was really umming and ahhing about investing in the membership (“how can I pay membership when I’m hardly earning myself?”). But it has paid for itself over and over again already. I’m now at capacity, I have upped my rates and am using associates. Best thing I ever did for my VA business’
‘I just wanted to say thank you for everything this year – your guidance has without doubt got me to where I am (£2k months) and I know I would be five steps behind if I hadn’t joined the membership. Thank you x’

My biggest achievement, since joining the membership, has been meeting and exceeding my initial goal of earning what I did when I was in full-time employment. This happened within 6 months of joining; Catherine’s continued support and guidance have certainly contributed to me achieving this.
My business has gone from strength to strength since joining the membership 12 months ago. I’m now earning 3.5 times the amount I was, I get such great advice & tips in there (while also having such a laugh in the process!) and I wouldn’t be without it for all the tea in China!
When I joined the group my monthly income was £264. Five months on it’s £1800 (that’s a seven times growth – 680%) and growing. I’ve attributed this to the members only live audit on how to write prospect emails.
Your membership group is amazing. I love being on the journey with you and all the other VA’s who are all at different stages of their business and that we all help each other along the way.
When I need some advice about what to do with a client I post in the group and get the best feedback that helps me on my way – I couldn’t and wouldn’t want to continue in my business without the amazing support of you and the group. You’ve done such a fantastic job to keep it so grounded, full of value, help, support and fun and laughter all at the same time.
When I first joined your membership I had a couple of ad hoc clients, was earning around £50 to a max of £250 a month (for the first 6 months). Now I have two big clients who keep me busy and my income last month was £2,275 (910%) – a HUGE increase (I still can’t believe it!!). I feel my confidence has grown, doing the packages challenge has been great too as it’s made me realise what I’m good at and what I enjoy.
I didn’t really have any direction & lots of self doubt before I joined the membership!
I feel supported, my income has increased which I think is down to putting myself out there more and taking on tasks I might have turned down previously and I feel I have more direction.
I’m part of a lovely community of VAs now which has helped me a lot.
I gained two new clients in the first month of being part of this supportive community
Since joining the membership I have learned so much, not only from Catherine but also the other members of the group. I have re-evaluated my business and marketing strategy based on everything I have learned (and continue to learn) and I am feeling much more confident in myself and in the future of my business! It is the only thing I need to succeed.
I’ve just listened to the ‘Don’t Give Up’ episode of your podcast and found it so inspiring!
I often feel like you describe so it was very reassuring! Thank you.
I was inspired (to join the Private Members’ Club) after our power hour and think this is perfect to help me through my first year and beyond. I am so looking forward to a new challenge!
How long will I have access to the online resources and Facebook group?
As long as you’re a paid up member.
How are the resources accessed?
Via this website, there’s a private members area.
Who is the group for?
Only people who are invested in the success of their Virtual Assistant business and want it to be their full time career. This ain’t no side hustle!
If your VA business is only a dream and you’ve made no commitment yet to start it, then may I recommend starting with my book. The Private Members’ Club is for those who are committed to building and growing their VA business and appreciate it doesn’t happen overnight.
I've already launched my business, is this group for me?
Yes, 100%! In fact, it was designed for you. However, if you’ve been in business 12 months or longer you might be ready for the Expert Membership. Have a look here.
Why is it a paid group? Am I not just better off joining a free one?
I’m a HUGE advocate of NOT giving stuff away for free. I wouldn’t want you to do it in your business. Would you be happy to work 20 hours paid a week and 20 hours unpaid? Running a group takes time, thought and the creation of resources. The free groups out there are lead generators to get you to either buy their products or services, or to get you to join their paid group. We all have to eat. Free content will eventually get you where you want to be, but you’ve got to decide what is going to get you there.
Have a read of this too: Should you invest in your business or just have the free resources?
What if I join and it's not for me?
Then I’ll get you in a headlock until you agree to stay! No, I won’t!
I’d be gutted to lose you as I really hope I can make a difference, but I also know I can’t please everyone. If you sign up as a monthly member, you can stop your membership at any time. If you opt for the annual fee and contact me within 30 days, I will issue a refund if you are genuinely not happy. The 30 days should not be seen as a trial period as the annual membership is for those with a genuine commitment to optimising the resources and learning. Please note that deductions may be made if you have signed up and received any free joining incentives (such as a 1-2-1 consultation, book, discount off any other products or services). If you choose to stop your membership you will no longer have access to any of the resources.
From my own personal experience of paid memberships it takes a few months to find your feet and get into a new routine.
How much time do I need to spend in the Private Members' Club?
You’ll get out what you put in. If you invest a couple of hours a week, you should start to make progress quickly. If you only dip in to the Facebook group and resources now and again your progress will be slower.
What if I cancel my membership and I've had / not had the 1:1?
The free 1:1 consultation is an offer made to members.
Annual members get a free 1 hour consultation. Should annual members decide to cancel within 30 days, you will be refunded your membership fee (subject to the terms in the point above) minus £40 if you have had the consultation.
Monthly members get a 20 minute free consultation.
If you cancel your membership before having the consultation you do not still get the free call, if it is booked for after your membership expires it will be cancelled.
What if I join mid year?
Your membership will run for 12 months regardless of when you join.
A bit more about that FREE call
The FREE call when you join (20 minutes for monthly members is so I can understand where your business is now, and where you want to be. This helps me to help you get there.
Sadly, it’s become necessary for me to write this extra bit… If you do not turn up for the free call / have given me less than 24 hours notice there won’t be the opportunity to re-book.
My time is just as important as yours.
In additon, if you leave the membership and return within 12 months you will not be eligible for a second free call.
