Kate believes entrepreneurship is the genesis of the American dream, and her attributes serve her well as a small business owner. Kate launched her personal property inventory business, Capital Counts Inventory, in 2016. Her experience as an entrepreneurial consultant, counseling and encouraging entrepreneurs every day, helped prepare her for her own venture.
Owning a business is part of her DNA and a life-long dream. Kate thrives in the entrepreneurial environment because she has a passion for community and sees the benefits of supporting local small businesses, economically empowering each other. A strategic thinker and a creative problem solver, Kate always puts the needs and concerns of her clients foremost. “Impossible” is not a word in Kate’s vocabulary.
She sums it up nicely by saying, “Entrepreneurs create jobs and make our nation stronger, more prosperous, and more secure. Innovation and generosity bloom, enabling the entire community to make a greater contribution to our families, to our communities, our nation, and the world.”
The home and business inventory industry fits well into her belief system and her personal vision. When she learned of business of inventory services, Kate was seeking a family business that she could pass on to her children someday. Diversifying her sources of income and also having a flexible, scalable business model, she is able to achieve these goals. The flexibility of the asset inventory industry fits well into her extremely busy schedule.
In her spare time, Kate enjoys gardening, writing, cooking, hiking, and photography. She loves to organize things, and develop new solutions for old problems. She reads extensively, from the Wall Street Journal to the Mother Earth News. Kate likes knowing what is going on in the world, and observing the ebb and flow of geopolitical events.
An interesting achievement is that Kate holds a Global High Score in Free Cell Solitaire…tied only by one gentleman in Southeast Asia, whose name she cannot pronounce.
