Susan Mershon - The Techie Mentor

I’m a no fluff, straight to the point person who will tell you like it is and be honest about what it takes to be successful. 

  • I truly believe that Susan's course is the best one for new business owners (VAs).

  • This program is geared towards creating "be-your-own-boss" minded people.

  • "Your Business, Your Choice" - It freed me to create a business I absolutely love.

  • I know that my business will continue to grow as a direct result of working with Susan.

  • I recommend this program to anyone looking for a no-nonsense program.

  • No general search-your-heart-advice, but step-by-step activities that I could use.

Does This Sound Like You?

You Want To Start...

But you are overwhelmed by all the information you've researched and are confused about what to do now. 

You Are Ready To...

Do the work - you're just not sure how to get started, what to do next, what to offer or how to get clients.

You're Fed Up With...

All the fluff + filler found in typical VA training courses and are tired of being left wanting more.

You Love Systems, Processes + Checklists

You crave organization + structure and are looking for a program that includes the same.

You Want To Attract Clients + Make More $$

You want to attract the right dream clients for your business so you can make more money.

What Are Your Objections?

  • I'm Not Ready Yet! I Still Have To Do This + That...

    Let me ask you do you want to be where you are today six months from now? If you're not ready now, when will you be? If it's important, you'll find the time otherwise you'll make excuses. Your success is up to you! What's stopping you?

  • I'm Already a Virtual Assistant

    This course is designed for ALL Virtual Assistants whether new or experienced who are not getting the results they want or need. If you're not getting results it might be time for a change!

  • I Don't Have Enough Time!

    There is always something that needs to get done - that's life. We're all busy. It really comes down to looking at how you're spending your time and asking yourself if you're just busy or are you productive? This program is broken into bite-sized pieces so you can learn something new in as little as 15 minutes. Plus it's all self-study - no deadlines.

  • I Can't Afford It!

    This course is for those who are ready to take the plunge; for those who are ready to invest in themselves and their future; for those who have tried other methods and found them lacking. This is the only course you need to finally succeed in the VA industry

  • This Program Is The Same As All The Others

    I have my own unique + fresh perspective on the VA industry and this is what I teach. You won't be getting the same regurgitated stuff everyone else is teaching. What I teach actually gets results and includes ZERO fluff, filler or hype. Don't waste time on courses that leave you saying, "ok, so what's next?" Get everything you need to know in one place along with the business skills, documents + mindset to help you reach your goals! PLUS you have access to me to help guide you along the way.

  • I Can Learn Everything I Need To Know From YouTube For FREE!

    Sure, but how do you know it works? And, how do you know what you are learning is legitimate? And where do you go if you have a question or need support? You can find just about anything online for free, but there is still a cost involved. It may not be $$ but it’s your time trying to piece the information together into a system or plan that you can actually implement.

Why Learn From Me!

  • I've Built Two Successful 6-Figure VA Businesses Myself...From Scratch

    I started my first VA business while working full time with an infant at home. And to be honest I had NO clue what I was doing. I don't have a college degree or any special business education but I hated my JOB so much that I channeled my anger into helping me figure out how to start + launch a 6-figure VA business. And I did! I took what I learned from that experience and used it to launched the Techie Mentor. So... I know how to build a successful, profitable + sustainable business, I've done it twice. What I teach is based on experience using proven systems that get results. 

  • I'm A Certified PMP + Worked As A Project Manager For Over 20 Years

    I used my years of project management + systems experience to create all of my training programs including this one. I'm a systems junkie and I wanted a program that was a complete end to end system for creating, launching + growing a successful Virtual Assistant business. So.. if you're someone who likes systems, processes + workflows you'll love my training.

  • I Know How To Teach - I Make Complex Subjects Easy To Understand

    I began teaching software way back in the 90's before the Internet and when Microsoft was just getting its start. I taught DOS, Windows, Access, WordPerfect, Microsoft Office and even Lotus 123 to professionals who needed to learn the software that ran the computer they just got at work. I know how to take complex subjects and make them simple to understand, use + implement. Bottom line is I know how to teach.

  • I've Been Supporting The VA Industry For Over 10 Years

    I'm not new kid on the block, I've been supporting the industry I'm passionate about for the past 12 years. I know what works and what doesn't based on years of experience.

  • I've Helped Thousands Of Newbies Build Their Online Business

    I've taught thousands of people just like you how to start, launch and grow their own VA business. Many like me, with no business experience or college education. What I teach gets real actual results. Don't take my word for it take a moment and read the testimonials on this page from students who got results from my training.

  • I Show You The Same Systems + Processes I Used Successfully

    The systems + processes that are taught in this course are the very same ones I used successfully in my own VA business. In fact, I still use the same key systems in my business now. These systems are the foundation of all online businesses - NOT just VA ones. These systems help you automate your business so you can enjoy life!

I have been a part of The Techie Mentor’s network for a year now and there isn’t a day that goes by that I can not reach out to the group members and not get an opinion or an answer – even Susan chimes in or if I have an in-depth question I can message PM or email Susan and she answers me back.
