The North Iowa Women In Business series continues, as we introduce you to Katy Flint of Social Impact. Katy is a go getter and a huge supporter of North Iowa.
When did you start your business?
I started my business “officially” in January of 2016, but had been working with clients since May of 2015.
What advice would you give a woman wanting to start her own business?
If you want to do it, just do it. Start where you feel comfortable, but be ready for the successes and the failures. Be patient because it will take more time and energy than you anticipate, but it will be completely worth it.
Who has mentored you through the process of building your business?
Sara of Social Connections, LLC has mentored me, as well as Donna Hup of Donnahup.com and Liz Nead of Nead Inspiration. Having strong business women around me has driven me to reach for what I wanted.
Do you belong to any business organizations, if so, which ones?
Tell us about your family.
I am married and have two amazing step-sons that are 12 and 16. We love camping, playing games together, and my husband and I love following all of our boys’ activities.
I have loved getting to know different business owners and helping them each achieve their goals through social media and blogging. I am always looking to meet new people and learn new things.
