Building a Virtual Expert® Business Featuring Kathy Goughenour

Building a Virtual Expert® Business Featuring Kathy Goughenour

After finding the courage to say “bye-bye” to her corporate marketing career, Kathy Goughenour built a 6-figure virtual assistant business from her tiny house in the middle of a forest. Today, she teaches professional women how to create their own work-at-home VA businesses so they can enjoy the freedom, flexibility, and financial security they desire and deserve.   

We discuss: 

  • Why you are not getting promoted [2:20] 
  • That’s called being a virtual assistant [5:14] 
  • The difference between a virtual assistant and a virtual expert [7:12] 
  • How to go from $15/hour to $75/hour in 30 days [11:19] 
  • Why you are never actually starting all over again [16:19] 
  • What’s keeping your target market up at night [18:16] 
  • A hidden gem of an industry [20:57] 

Kathy also offers VA Matchmaking sessions to business owners interested in working with Expert VAs®️ and Virtual Experts®️. Kathy and her Expert VA®️ and Virtual Expert®️ Training program have been featured in Forbes, The Huffington Post, Good Housekeeping, All You, and The Wealthy Freelancer.
