We are passionate about providing you with a variety of services and resources to help you grow your business, no matter where you are in your journey!

Our consulting team has more than 40 years of experience and education to bring to you and your small business.

We have a holistic, generalist approach and believe that all problems are solvable, no matter how big or small. We specialize in root cause analysis and process improvement across all areas of business.

We believe in creative, unique solutions that fit you and your business, instead of forcing you into a predetermined solution. Thinking outside the box is our jam.

There is an abundance of information out there for entrepreneurs and small business owners, which can be incredibly helpful, or incredibly overwhelming.

Our mission is to provide an integrated support system - based on our Six Pillars of Business - that gives flexible options for business owners and entrepreneurs wherever they may be in their journey.

Happy thoughts from some of our clients!

I just met with Kristin and she’s really good at making new business owners feel like they’re ready to go! She is incredibly knowledgeable and knows how to point you in the right direction with your small business needs. Thank you Kristin for working with me today! Your services are amazing!

-Sharon D.

A partner and I chose Kristin of Catalyst Consulting to help us launch our podcast. We found her to be diligent, resourceful, full of ideas and a pleasure to interact with. In spite of the fact that we were a bit unfocused at the beginning, she never took anything personally and politely helped us to present ourselves on social media in the best possible light. Even when our contract ended she made herself available to answer any questions we still had. A gem.
-Jeremy W.

Kristin with Catalyst Consulting is the best! She genuinely wants her clients to achieve success and will do whatever it takes to help them reach their professional and personal goals!

-Jessica H.

Kristin is such an amazing person to work with, she is so good at taking all your jumbled up goals and dreams that you have for your business, and organizing them to create a realistic game plan that actually works! She’s been working with me for a few weeks now and I already see a huge improvement both with my online social media accounts and with my own motivation! She’s inspired me to tackle some projects I’ve been putting off because I didn’t know how to proceed. I can’t wait to see what the rest of our time together results in.

-Whitney V.

Kristin with Catalyst Consulting, encourages you to dream again. I was floundering because I was trying to succeed at a business model that was not using my inborn talents and abilities. By helping me figure out what I really love doing, and incorporating that into a viable business, she's got me on the right track. I've not been so pumped about where I'm going for a long, long time.
