Katie Blomquist

5 months ago

My pivot happened right when quarantine started in March. I had just created Katie Blomquist, LLC to teach people how to start or revamp their nonprofit but I never planned on it happening so quickly or running it mostly full-time for months straight. For the last 3.5yrs, I have been running, full-time the nonprofit, Going Places, where I am the Founder and Executive Director. We provide new, custom bikes to EVERY child at once in the low-income elementary schools in big, surprise bike reveals- so we are giving 400, 600, etc bikes at once! Once the pandemic hit, we came to screeching halt when it came to events and donations. I quickly realized with so much unknown, I didn’t know what the future held for us and if I was going to be able to keep making a salary. I knew I needed a new stream of steady income and fast. I launched my 7 month, online course where I guide people, month by month through video lessons and one-on-one coaching on how to start and grow or revamp their nonprofit. I quickly more than doubled my Going Places salary in the first several months of launching my course, “Start and Grow Your Nonprofit”.,,,
