Make More Money in Your Virtual Assistant Side Hustle with Kathy Goughenour

Ep. 270: Make More Money in Your Virtual Assistant Side Hustle with Kathy Goughenour

I learn something amazing from every single guest I have on this podcast… but every now and again I have a guest on the show that blows my mind, and today’s episode is another one of those transformative, mind-shifting, belief-changing ones that make me love doing this podcast and fundamentally shift how I’m doing things in my business.

My guest today is super passionate about training women to be the superheros of their own success.

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.

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.

Today we’re talking about:

  • Kathy’s journey to become a coach for virtual experts.
  • The realization Kathy came to when she felt her career was at a standstill.
  • How Kathy’s unsolicited marketing advice turned into her first client as a virtual assistant.
  • The importance of taking imperfect action.
  • Why Kathy decided to hire a coach and the best advice she got.
  • Why you should be raising your prices.
  • The #1 key to being successful in your business.
  • Her best advice for you if you want to sell a course.
  • Why you should specialize.
  • How your money mindset can hold back your profit.
  • What Kathy started doing differently to achieve her profit goals.
  • Why your website does not have to be perfect for you to be massively successful.
  • Her best advice for you if you’re struggling to get traction in your business.
  • The one belief Kathy had to change about herself to get where she is today.

My favorite quotes from Kathy:

  • “Once you learn how to build this (VA business) you can learn how to build any business you want”
  • “I’m passionate about training women to be the superheros of their own success.”
  • “I am somebody worthwhile and we all are.”
  • “The universe provides more than we can ever handle if we can open our minds and our hearts to that.”
  • “Take bigger risks.”
  • “Stop playing small. The universe needs you.”
  • “Hang out and learn from coaches who have been where you want to go.”
  • “Believe in myself enough to invest that money even though I did not have that money.”
  • “Get way out of your comfort zone.”
