Under Kathy’s guidance, my confidence, knowledge, and skill set have increased tremendously

Preferred Business SolutionsBefore I hired Kathy as my business coach and trainer, I had pieces to a puzzle that I didn’t know how to properly put together. I struggled for a year trying to get my virtual assistant business off the ground. It was Kathy’s compassion and genuine interest of wanting me to succeed, regardless if I chose to to work with her as a business coach, during our free phone consultation that I knew  I would be in great hands.  After working with Kathy, my disarrayed puzzle displays a promising picture. Under Kathy’s guidance, my confidence, knowledge, and skill set have increased tremendously. Thanks, Kathy, for pushing me past my comfort zone. You ROCK as a coach! – LaNita Gordy-Pulliam, vapreferred.com


By the end of the training, I had 6 new clients and had earned back the money I spent on the training

TimeSavingVA TestimonialWhen I started the Expert VA Training Small-Group Coaching six-month program with Kathy Goughenour, I did not know too much about what a virtual assistant was, no less what my niche or target market should be. During the program, Kathy helped me choose my niche and start learning my new craft by subcontracting for another VA. By the end of the training, I had 6 new clients and had earned back the money I spent on the training and investing in myself and my company. I highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to be their own boss and make a great living as a virtual assistant!– Andrea Robinson, timesavingva.com


Kathy is there to help you over the hurdles

sticklervirtualassistant.comThe idea of doing virtual assistant work had been in the back of my mind for a long time because of the flexibility it offers, but I had no idea how to start. While attending a networking event, I met someone who had been successful at starting a VA business and they recommended Kathy to me. Kathy’s training has a solid lesson plan that walks you through every step to get your business up and running, but her real value is in her ability to be an encouragement. Building any business comes with a certain level of uncertainty, and as life happens, and it inevitably does, Kathy is there to help you over the hurdles. She understands the challenges of starting the VA business because she has been there. I would not hesitate to recommend her and her training to anyone wanting to start their own business. – Wendy Datskovskiy, sticklervirtualassistant.com

I thought I knew what I was doing in terms of starting my own business. I had my target market and niche decided, but wasn’t getting anywhere. Then I started Kathy’s step-by-step lessons which takes you back to the start. Even if you already have your business up and running, I recommend you start at Lesson One because you may surprise yourself. My business has taken a whole new direction, with a completely different target market and niche.

Kathy always gives the best feedback from years of experience and really takes a personal interest in all of her students. You can go through the training as slow or as fast as you need to. I will be relocating back to NZ soon and I know Kathy will be there for me, supporting me and my business, wherever I am in the world. — Jilanne Holder, oceanadminsolutions.com

Choosing this training was the best decision I made for me and my business

“When I met Kathy, I had supposedly been in business for 4 months.

I started my business not having a clue of what I was doing or about to embark on. I was drowning and hadn’t even noticed! During my free, 20-minute consultation with Kathy, I realized I had done everything wrong, from the name of my business to the market I was targeting, and I knew I could not do this alone and needed HER help.

Kathy was so energetic, enthusiastic, passionate and most importantly caring. She truly cares about making my business successful. Choosing Kathy was the best decision I made for me and my business, I know for a fact that I could not have done this on my own. She held my hand when she needed to and kicked me in the butt when I needed it. She made me believe in myself, when I doubted my own abilities and instincts. Her depth of knowledge about this industry is in my opinion unsurpassed, and I would hire her again and again if I had to.

I am and will forever be grateful that our paths crossed and I know I will never be able to thank her enough for all that she has done for me.” – Edie Clarke, VirtuallyinSync.com


Today, I am living my dream of working from home

“I’d been dreaming of becoming a virtual assistant for several years, and I didn’t know how to start the process. I signed up for Kathy’s Expert VA Training and my life has not been the same. Kathy taught me everything I needed to know to become a successful VA. She helped me prepare my website content.

By the time my formal training ended, my website was live, and I had a client base. In fact, one month after I graduated from Expert VA Training, I’d already earned (working as a VA) the amount I paid for the training. Today I am living my dream of working from home. Kathy’s training was the key to my success!” – Lorraine Castle, CastleVirtualSolutions.com

Each session has been masterfully structured and provides exactly what up-and-coming virtual assistants need.

Donna Patton“I could not say enough good things about Kathy’s passion for her work and her commitment and ability to motivate and educate her students. I would like to attest to the in-depth, hands-on instruction she provides to each of us—collectively and individually. Each session has been masterfully structured and provides exactly what up-and-coming virtual assistants need. Even before classes began, Kathy held a private brainstorming session with each student, to assist us in deciding on what our niche and target markets would be. Expert VA Training is not only developing the expert in each of us, but also helping us to build our own businesses, from the foundation upward. The entire process, thus far, has been challenging, yes, but certainly no less than AMAZING. And, I would highly recommend Expert VA Training to anyone interested in taking up a new career, finding a new job or improving their current business. Kathy, I could never thank you enough for all that you do in helping me to realize my potential in the self-publishing industry. I look forward to many great successes with each day that passes!”

— Donna Patton, Founder/CEO, Abrah-Cove Publishing, Expert VA, In-Training
