Freelancers, Virtual Assistants & Service Providers…

Are you ready to take back control of your business?

The PROVEN PATH to CONSISTENT CLIENTS in Your Service Business.

FIND THE FREEDOM to have and do whatever YOU want by generating the money to make it happen.




If you are like many other SERVICE PROVIDERS you struggle to get consistent CLIENTS to make money . . . and YOU keep running into roadblock after roadblock!

Does this sound like YOU?

  • BOSS of your own business providing services to multiple clients (you may call yourself a Freelancer, Virtual Assistant, OBM, Social Media Strategist, Web Developer, Copywriter, Bookkeeper, Coach, etc.)
  • Always worried about how you’ll find the CLIENTS you need to make the money you want.
  • Stressed out because you keep trying all sorts of things others tell you to do but nothing is working.
  • Feeling totally alone and overwhelmed trying to figure out how to make your online business serving clients work.
  • Losing confidence as you see other service-based business owners making it work but you can’t get any clients to sign up and work with you.
  • Getting desperate and trying anything and everything including doing work for reduced fees and even free !!! versus being paid what you are worth!

SO, what do you do at this point?

Well, a lot of people in your shoes join the GET CLIENTS Club with Certified Internet Marketing Business Strategist  > Tawnya Sutherland.

Because Tawnya has been in your shoes – and knows exactly how you feel.

In 1997… she had three young kids, was in the middle of a hard divorce, was laid off from her job, and living in a place where she had no family or community support. She made the decision right there and then not to have a pity party… and instead take things into her own hands.

She started her own service-based business offering Virtual Assistant services so she could support her kids and herself and do it in a way that would last.

BUT, Tawnya knew she couldn’t do it alone. She needed a community of like-minded entrepreneurs to hang out and learn with so she started up VAnetworking in 2003. But Tawnya didn’t stop there, over the next couple of years she created the Virtual Assistant Career Success System to teach her VA roadmap. NEXT, she gathered up enthusiastic keeners in the VA industry and put together a membership community for Virtual Assistants, where she could continually coach and teach others to find clients so they could have the same client success she had.

And 2 decades later, Tawnya continues to share her 25+ years of expertise coaching all types of service providers…

so they can experience the same feeling of joy from creating their own freedom and success.

The Get Clients Club (formerly VAinsiders Club) has been the go-to community for thousands since 2003.

3. CLIENTS in abundance waiting to hire you.

We are continuously expanding our training modules to cover a wide range of topics that are relevant and valuable for your client acquisition and retention efforts. Our goal is to equip you with the latest insights, strategies, and techniques to help you find and retain more clients successfully. Stay tuned as we consistently add new training modules on topics of interest to ensure you have the tools and knowledge you need for continuous growth in your freelance business.

Before joining the Get Clients Club I was suffering from paralysis by analysis. How will I get clients? How will I maintain them? What if they don’t like me or my work, etc?

The reality is, there are no secret strategies. There is no ancient long lost tome written at the bottom of some dead sea that you must find or some long lost pilgrimage you must take to be ready for this.

You can find instructions on how to get clients anywhere online. But finding a community like Tawnya Sutherland’s “Get Clients Club” who just gets you. Who just supports you. And who refers you selflessly… now that is rare… yet readily available to you anytime you choose.

I joined for the training but I stayed for the community. Tawnya and the others are like family to me and the interactive Zoom meetings kept me excited and sane throughout the past 10 years of me being a member.

I highly recommend signing up and allowing Tawnya to show you the way to bravely build your own fully booked, service-based business online. This is your year! Grow your business with the support you need. And with people who get you!

~ Kristin Lobdell ~

I recently joined and I found the group to be extremely welcoming and supportive right from the start.

I gained valuable tools and insights right away that I will be able to implement in my business.

Everyone here is so kind, professional and genuinely care about helping you succeed.

As a solopreneur, I needed a community of like-minded professionals that understand the specific needs of a VA that I could meet with regularly for support. I am so happy to say I’ve found it!

I would even go so far as to say that the membership has paid for itself in only one meeting!

I’m now feeling more hopeful and confident that I have the resources I need to ensure my success. Thank you Tawnya and friends, I am so excited to continue this journey with you all!

Lourdes McCombs, Business Consultant ~ I wanted to let you know that I got a NEW CLIENT by responding to one of the RFPs posted on the Job Board.

The fee for the project that I charged my NEW client needed covered the cost of my membership here.

Chinenye Erikowa ~ As a newbie, the resources available in this membership, have made me understand clearly what being a business owner entails.

Being part of the group coaching has CONNECTED ME to like-minded people who are willing to support and ensure I am successful in my new journey.

Gina Koran, Virtual Assistant ~ Before I invested in this club, I was feeling lost on where to begin in my VA journey.

With Tawnya, I found a COACH WHO ACTUALLY CARES about my progress, helps me through the stumbling blocks AND celebrates the victories with me.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know this club is for me?

This monthly membership is perfect for you if:

  • You’re a Service Provider struggling to hit your revenue goals in your business.

Definition of a Service Provider: An independent business owner offering their services (administrative, creative or technical) remotely.  A few examples: Virtual Assistants, OBMs, Freelancers, Web Developers, Graphic Designers, Copywriters, Accountants, Bookkeepers, Social Media Specialists, Coaches, etc.

  • You are exploring the idea of offering your administrative, creative or technical services to clients online and want to do it right
  • You need coaching, accountability, community and support to reach your goals
  • You value your time and are sick and tired of wading through Internet search results
  • You dream of financial freedom as a self-employed service provider working from home
  • You need a full client base
Is this membership for brand new or seasoned service providers?

We have members here at all levels in their careers as service providers. Some have been in business for 10+ years and love the COMMUNITY with their peers and friends they’ve had for years here. Others joined just to find CLIENTS and visiting our job board is their main mission each morning with a cup of tea.

Everyone loves the COACHING options and knowing someone is out there and has your back when you need it and rely on our monthly sessions and access to our Private Forum for Q&A.

How long is the core Get Clients Series training and how does that work?

The core training is in one-hour video format (15 modules). I truly feel you need to sit down, set aside 2-3 hour blocks of time and focus on implementing what you learn in the modules. You’ll find better results focusing this way than trying to fit in 10-15 minutes of learning here and there.

As you watch and implement each module you can mark it complete and automatically see the percentage you have left in the training.

Tell me more about your pricing options, guarantee, canceling and refund policy?

I know you’ll love the Get Clients Club and make it a monthly staple in your business expenses (that you can write off at tax time). Saying that I do offer a full money-back guarantee on yearly plans only within 30 days from your purchase date. SO, give us a try for a month, you’ve got nothing to lose and plenty to gain (Coaching + Community = CLIENTS). PLUS if you pay upfront for one full year you’ll get over 2 months for free. Each year your yearly payment will be automatically renewed until you cancel with us which is easy to do just email or phone us to cancel.

There is also a recurring monthly pricing option if you aren’t yet ready to commit to a full year yet and just want to check us out. Cancel at any time. There is no money-back return if you pay monthly.

How many clients will I get and how long does it take?

The course curriculum’s goal is to get you fully booked with clients. And booked solid you’ll be if you implement what you learn in the core training series. You’ll also have access to our job board and receive a business directory listing at our popular client-attractive website to further help you find clients.

I’ve had students get their first client the very same day they joined the Get Clients Club. How quickly you get your first client or get booked solid really depends on you and how quickly you implement what you learn in the program. Everyone learns and works at different paces but on average every member gets their first client in the first month.

The pricing is in USD and wondering if this is suitable for those located outside the USA?

The training and resources in the membership work globally no matter what your location is. I actually live in Canada and for that reason alone the templates and resources were built to work globally no matter where the service provider lives. The resources will teach you how to get clients anywhere in the world. The templates in the vault are universal and nothing contained in any of these templates shall be construed as legal advice. You are encouraged to seek the advice of an attorney in your location before entering into any legal contract.

What if I can't attend the scheduled Group Coaching Calls?

If you can’t attend the group coaching calls because of other time commitments you may have you can always listen to the recordings on your own timeline. If you have a question or challenge you would like answered you can submit it before the call and it will be answered in the recording for you.

Don’t forget you also have access to the Private Forum area where you can post any day or night and I’m in there answering questions daily. It’s a private area to voice your questions or challenges if you hit a roadblock when you can engage with our community experts (and me, Tawnya) and ask for help. No more sharing your struggles publicly in Facebook groups where your clients may search and read about them.

Tell me more about the job board and what it's all about?

I’ve been promoting this Job Board to my business colleagues online since 2003 so it’s got quite a following for entrepreneurs wanting to outsource their business tasks. I even pay my affiliates to send jobs to it. We get jobs from all across the globe with 75% of them located in North America but being virtual you can work remotely anywhere in the world. We do our best to vet these jobs to keep out scammers. We don’t accept any jobs under $15/hour with most being $30+/hour. 

It’s much easier to land a client at our Job Board because our membership is smaller and not as competitive. You aren’t competing with 100,000s of other freelancers for the same job. Typically it’s 1-3 applicants for each job.

What's inside the Resource Vault?

Inside the Resource Vault, you’ll find 100+ business templates like checklists, worksheets, client letters, contracts, tutorials, and ebooks all focused on the topic of why you are here > to help you find and retain clients.

The categories of resources for you to instantly download:

  • Working With Clients
  • Customer Service
  • Business Admin
  • Marketing Resources
  • Contracts, and Legalese

Edit and use for your own personal business use to help you get booked solid.

Can you share more details about Tawnya's coaching background?

Since 2005, I’ve been specifically working with Virtual Assistants (Freelancers and Service Providers like Graphic Designers, ghostwriters, web developers, coaches, bookkeepers, OBMS, social media managers, etc.) to help them clear the clutter and take revenue-generating ACTION!  I’ve personally coached 1000s of service providers over the years and I don’t hold anything back with my protégés. I give everything I have and then some. Business owners who work with me get the full benefit of my skills, knowledge, years of experience and PASSION for helping entrepreneurs succeed online in this increasingly competitive industry. Read my full BIO here.

Do you offer any certification once I complete your training series?

Nope. There is no reliable testing process online to certify that you completed the program as anyone could have completed it for you online.

What I can tell you is that you’ll walk away fully booked solid with clients if you simply follow the program, implement the training and utilize the support found in this club.

Why should I choose your program over others I see online?

I’ve been a leader, trainer, coach and spokesperson in the Virtual Assistant for over 20 years. Just Google me or ask around. I have a long and strong history of helping service providers get started and scaling their business into 6 figures. I’ve also been running my own VA business since 1997 so I walk the talk and who better to learn from than someone doing it? 😉

This question touches my heart because unfortunately, I have seen many “POP-UP” trainers/coaches come and go over the years preying on the vulnerable who simply want to get started in business as a service provider. These instructors have never even run a successful business of their own yet. Simply put they are blowing sunshine up the backsides of people who just want to learn how to run a successful business. It’s sad but true and I see it happening every day … a flashy website, a lip-syncing Tiktok video, pearly promises, and a lightning bolt strikes another poor soul sucked into handing over their money for training that won’t help them.

You’ll get no smoke and mirrors with me as I’m an introvert (maybe like you). You’ll never catch me lip-syncing on TikTok, ever! LOL! My sole mission over the years has been to help service providers however I can. You can trust I’ve got your back throughout the lifetime of your business with me because I’m a nurturer at heart and get my kicks seeing business success with my online Get Clients Club friends.
