What makes The WFH Milspo Courses different
You have probably seen courses in web design, email marketing, and social media management out there before.
But the WFH Milspo Courses are different than those “learn web design in a day!” courses.
We teach a comprehensive course from start to finish. We take you step-by-step through branding, designing a website, and email marketing so that when you’re complete with our course you have a website of your own, fully designed and ready to go to start attracting freelance clients or to showcase your abilities to potential employers.
We work together to design a site from start to finish, and everything in between.
We don’t just tell you how to set up a web page. We walk you through branding of a mock company, how to connect that branding to the website, designing the page based on the company’s needs, and connecting the email marketing platform.
We do this for each of the 3 most popular web site platforms and each of the 3 most popular email marketing platforms, so you can come away with having expansive knowledge in order to meet your clients’ needs.
You have access to these videos for a lifetime, and you can go back and rewatch them or reference them as much as you’d like!
Access to our student Facebook group and office hours with me + resource handbooks.
Each student has access to our private student Facebook group where they can ask questions, get advice, or even share their latest project.
You also have access to me, no matter how long ago you took the course, through student office hours with me. If you get stuck on a technicial issue or have a task from a client that you don’t know how to do, send me a message and we will sit down and chat.
Each course also has it’s own resource handbook which is free to download and print on your own, or available for purchase in our printed versions. These resource books provide step-by-step instructions in every thing we discuss in our videos, screen shot images, and places for note taking while you complete the course so you can reference back when you have active clients without watching every video over again.
Partnership with Wise Advise Virtual Assistant Agency
The most important thing for me as your instructor and as a fellow military sposue to making sure you find work after completing my course.
That is why I partner with Wise Advise + Assist Team™, a military spouse owned and hiring-friendly virtual assitant agency. After you have completed one of my courses, you will let Wise Advise know in your application, and they will fast track you to getting started sooner.
I also offer a comprehensive list of other virtual assistant agencies that hire military spouses.
You can also join the private Facebook group, The Work from Home Military Spouse where I regularly post remote job opportunities in a variety of fields.
Client Organization Tips
In our Web Design and Digital Design Masterclass we discuss client organization and management using tools like Honeybook for contracts and invoicing, Calendly to set up client calls, and Asana for task and client management.
Business Formations and Business Taxes
The WFH Milspo also includes two guest experts, both military spouses, in business formations (LLC, sole proprietor, etc), moving your business to different locations, and business taxes to include write-offs and quarterly tax information.
Student-Only Job Board
Our job board will be for creative marketing virtual assistant projects and/or positions in web design, email marketing, branding, SEO, and more. Only students will be allowed to apply which means you are competing with less people and the job posters will know what skills job applicants have!
20% off future courses
We are committed to helping you grow and expand in your skillset. That is why we offer 20% off any additional courses you may want to take in the future like ebook design, digital product design, print on demand, and more.
Every new Masterclass student will receive a $5 Starbucks gift card to help them get started on their VA journey!
This course has helped me catapult my virtual assistant career.
Before taking this course I had applied to become a virtual assistant with various agencies, but none were interested in hiring me as I had no real VA skills outside of answering emails. But I found Lauren’s course in a spouse group and I decided to give it a try so that I could have the skills necessary to be a virtual assistant. After taking her course, I was hired within a week!
I have taken a decade’s worth of experience and learning, and created a course for military spouses just like you to learn the same skills with quick, easy, and fun video trainings.

Hey there, I´m Lauren, a military spouse, web designer, and business owner.
Throughout my time as a military spouse I have always been passionate about helping other spouses create careers that fit the military lifestyle.
I have been in the digital media space for over a decade. I started off as a freelance writer for publications like Military Spouse Magazine, Homefront United, Mothering, Daily Mom, and more. I was also the Managing Editor of Daily Mom Military, the Digital Editor of Military Families Magazine, and one-half of the military spouse duo, #TheDependas.
Throughout the past 10 years I have self-taught myself allllll the things concerning web design, email marketing, and other areas of virtual assistantship.
And now I’m passing on this knowledge and expertise to you.
Military spouses are like palm trees – because, like the palm tree, military spouses will bend, almost in half, in the eye of a hurricane.
But they don’t break.
