606 Kathy Goughenour: Virtual Growth

Finding the Right VAs for Your Business

The world of work is increasingly virtual, and I don’t just mean working-from-home during the Pandemic.

Remote gig work was a fast-growing trend long before Coronavirus hit, and as more and more businesses move online, it’s hard to imagine growing a business without a Virtual Assistant.

It’s not just that a good VA can help out with all the busy work: Many have specific expertise that becomes an indispensable tool in creating real momentum for your business.

Today we talk with  Kathy Goughenour, founder and CEO of Expert VA® and Virtual Expert® Training, where she trains and coaches women who want to build their own Virtual Assistant home-based businesses.

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. Kathy not only teaches professional women how to create their own work-at-home VA businesses, she 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.
