Raised with a no limits attitude, Kathy Goughenour learned early on that she could do anything she wanted to do. Earning a Masters degree while working at a fortune 500 company, Kathy was motivated to branch out on her own and prove her worth after her boss tried to belittle and place limits her potential. 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 Virtual Assistant and Virtual Expert® businesses so they too can enjoy the freedom, flexibility, and financial security they desire and deserve.
Kathy and her Expert VA® and Virtual Expert® Training programs have been featured in Forbes, The Huffington Post, Good Housekeeping, All You, and The Wealthy Freelancer. For more information, visit www.virtualexpertraining.com.
