Podcast: Kathy Goughenour: Having a Million Dollar VA Business

This has been one of Kiri’s favorite interviews due to how open Kathy has been about her career and business. Kathy Goughenour is a force to be reckoned with, with her VA coaching business bringing in over a million dollars. Kathy is a longstanding VA who had the courage to say “bye-bye” to her corporate marketing career and 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. 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.
