Build Your Own VA

Create more time & less to-dos for your solopreneur biz using workflow automation

Automate your solo biz

Okay, let me guess… 🤔

You’re a creative entrepreneur who doesn’t even have time to be creative anymore.

You just want to create awesome shit, but boring stuff like admin and email keep getting in the way. 🙅🏻

Sure, you have some systems set up...but they’re clunky and you don’t even know where to begin streamlining them.

And yeah, you have 1 or 2 IFTTT and Zapier automations set up, but you know you should be using them more. 😬


Solopreneurship has started to suck. And that sucks.

Your business is growing fast, but you can’t even enjoy it because you’re getting hives over the extra work it means. 😬

Admin starts to take over your life until you’re working longer hours than when you were at a traditional 9-5.

And you’re drowning in to-dos so badly you can’t even see the bigger goals anymore. 🙈

But imagine something more like this… 🔮

What if you didn’t have to waste time on those business tasks that eat away at your soul? (You know the ones.)

You feel organized and on top of your biz all the time, instead of overwhelmed and drowning in it.

Your systems are #flawless (they woke up like this 💁🏻), and run whether or not you’re there to manage them.

You have automated systems that manage everything - even though you’re not techy at all, and they let you spend less time on admin and more time on creative, happy, fun times!


Build Your Own VA is a self-paced ecourse to help you put boring biz tasks on the backburner and set your systems on autopilot!

"Since setting up Zapier and IFTTT, all of my different business systems and softwares now communicate with each other, and do so seamlessly. It's as if they have been molded into one unique software for my business needs.

Working in a service-based industry, I generate revenue by working on my clients' projects, not my own. BYOVA has allowed me to save time operating and marketing my business, giving me the opportunity to take on another client without having to work longer days.

That means I earn more money without having to work more hours and, for that, I can't thank Brittany enough for creating BYOVA.

While I'm happy to save time, I've found the best part about automating tasks is not even having to think about doing them. Now I run my business and my business doesn't run me."

- Rae Targos, Productive Co.

BYOVA contains premium video tutorials, how-to articles, cheat sheets, and more to help you master the most important apps you need to automate your creative biz. 🤖

  • IFTTT: create simple one-step automations for your biz and personal life.

  • Zapier: get really crazy and automate full business systems and workflows (both beginner and advanced training available).

  • Alfred: launch any file or workflow from your Mac in a single keystroke.

  • Workflow: create your own iOS app in 5 minutes (ya, really) to automate your own mobile processes. 📱

We also talk about automation as a business strategy, so you get crystal clear on your goals for using automation, and build bigger productive habits for your new systems to fit into. 🙌

And did I mention the productivity audit that makes it super obvious where and how you need to save time ⏰ in your solo business.

All of the sudden, it becomes super simple to streamline your processes and systems and put them on autopilot.

You’ll learn how to…

  • "Outsource" blog admin and maintenance stuff so that you can focus on content creation.

  • Offload the most annoying and time-consuming parts of infopreneur admin, from managing customer service to tracking your income. 💰

  • Build automated freelance processes so you can spend more time on billable work.

  • Make any two apps talk to each other and build chain reactions of productivity! 🤓

  • Save money on outsourcing to VAs by saving only the most important tasks for your real, human team members.

  • Avoid tech overwhelm and learn how to use tools that work with the systems you already have. 🙌

"Before BYOVA, I struggled with creating systems that actually worked. The systems I did have involved a lot of work on my end, which took time away from more important things.

This taught me how to think outside the box and string together different tools to create systems that ran themselves. Such a huge timesaver!

I've actually put IFTTT and Zapier to use! Using them to create systems have saved a bunch of time, which allows me to be more productive."

"I love the idea of automation tools like IFTTT and Zapier, but they overwhelmed me to the point of paralyzation because of how much they could do. Brittany's posts have made these tools accessible and applicable to my solo business.

Soon after I read her IFTTT recipes tutorial, I set one up to get a Slack notification when a client email comes in. Now, I can shut my inbox down knowing that I'll still be alerted for urgent emails. It's been a gamechanger!"

"I have seriously learned *so* much from Brittany's productivity advice! IFTTT has helped everything that comes with scheduling and sharing a blog post a whole lot easier and less overwhelming. I never realized how much time I was spending on the little tasks, but they really add up! I'm now getting a whole lot more bang for my buck each time I publish and share a blog post."

BYOVA is perfect for you if:

  • You’re a solopreneur who can’t start new projects because you’re drowning in day-to-day maintenance. 📆

  • You’re a freelance creative that stresses over landing new clients because of all the boring (and unbillable) admin involved in onboarding.

  • You’re a rockstar infopreneur whose admin has taken the passive out of passive income. 💻

  • You're a VA who wants to take on more work (oh hey, retainer!) without working more hours maintaining your clients' email and social media.

  • Your solo biz is slaying so hard that your VA needs her own VA. You’re working longer days than when you had a traditional 9-5. Ugh!

  • The number of apps and tools it takes to run an online biz makes you want to breathe into a paper bag. 🤢

  • Your systems are kiiiinda there, but they’re scattered and you’re not totally sure they’re real systems. 🤔

By the end of the course, you’ll…

  • Streamline systems until they’re totally on autopilot. 🚀

  • Save money by outsourcing only the most important tasks, not low energy admin.

  • Build habits that make it feel natural to be productive in the future.

  • Avoid tech overwhelm by prioritizing tools that work with the systems you already use. 💻

"I have always battled with inbox overwhelm but Brittany's advice and tools recommendations about how to automate email have been a life-saver (or should I say, sanity-saver?!). The advice she shares isn't just fluff but stuff she actually believes in and uses.

Also, her ideas about tricking yourself into saving more money have alleviated the pressure and stress of paying my quarterly taxes. And we all know how stressful that can be!"

I'm Brittany, and I'm here to show you how to use automation to take back your day from the dreaded, tiny admin tasks that eat up your time as a solo business owner.

I've spent years optimizing and automating systems in my business and personal life - from freelance client management to buying groceries (because #lazy...or smart?).

Now I save hours each week automating the very tasks most solopreneurs complain about most. And you can have my secrets.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a human VA. Why would I automate things?
How would you like it if you and your VA suddenly had an extra few hours a week? Automation is a win/win for both of you because they have more time to work on harder projects for you, and you're not paying them for the simple stuff a robot can do! Ta-daaaa!
I already use IFTTT and Zapier. is this course for me?
Of course! Sure, this course goes over the basics of those apps, but it's so much more. I'm handing you hundreds of automations and recipes ready to customize and start using immediately, cheat sheets so you don't have to spend hours browsing each site, and explain the more advanced features a lot of people don't even know about!
What's included?
BYOVA includes 6 modules, broken down into lessons containing both video and text (gotta show love to the word nerds!). Each module also has a matching cheat sheet or workbook. Plus, I'm throwing in a free copy of The Productivity Power-Up Workbook, one of my other products to help you get shit done, and a bunch of other bonuses.
How long do I have access to the course?
Um, forever. I know, it's great. After you sign up, you have unlimited access to all this goodness, and any new content that gets added to the course in the future. I've got your back. 😉
In the words of Outkast, "for ever, ever?"
For ever, ever. ("Forever doesn't seem that long until you're grown...I'm sorry Ms. Jackson!")
What if I'm unhappy with the course?
If you're sad, I'm sad. I would never want you to be unhappy! If you've gone through the course, implemented some of the strategies, and found they're not saving time, contact me through the course platform and we'll work something out.

"I learned how to use the tools I was already using in smarter and more efficient ways. The automation tips alone will give me back several hours each week that I can devote to the things I enjoy doing (and not the mind-numbing, repetitive tasks that I hate).

I've known for a long time that automation could help me, but I just wasn't quite sure where to begin. Brittany gives concrete information and examples that show you exactly what to do to maximize your productivity.

I went from "This task sucks..." (and thus, procrastination) to "This task sucks... how can I automate it?" (so I never have to do it again!). I'm getting so much more done in so much less time."
