ABOUT KIM & KAT

FOUNDERS OF PROFITABLE IMPACT ACADEMY

In late 2018, we were happily doing it all. To name a few things, we were publishing weekly blog posts, writing and sending weekly emails, filming weekly Facebook videos. We were active on Instagram, Facebook, and in multiple Facebook groups. 

We were doing at least one coffee chat per week. We were constantly launching something new. 

We were hosting in-person events.  And, oh yeah, there was the client work and admin tasks for our membership club we had at the time… 

You’re probably not surprised to learn that we worked from about 7am to 9pm every single day – weekends included! 

Honestly, at the time we were okay with it. Business was fun! But we were clinging to the idea that we had to work that hard to get the money to come in. Only THEN could we consider slowing down. 

But in June 2019, it became very clear that something was going to need to change, and fast. Kim had a serious health issue arise and Kat endured a personal loss. With both of us needing to focus our time on family and recovery, we realized we couldn’t keep pushing so HARD to ensure our business was profitable.  

Through our revisioning, we built a successful, self-sustaining business and we realized that simplifying didn’t have to mean giving up income. In fact, the changes we implemented led us to grow into a multi-six-figure business over the following year alone, all while working a whole lot less.  

And now, these are the results we want to help you achieve by showing you how to implement our Impact Maker Blueprint into your business to give you more freedom and more profit.

I’ve spent a lot of my life on the road less travelled. I became a mom at the age of 14 and I am living proof that you can reach your goals and live the life of your dreams no matter what you’ve faced. I do what I do now because I know my own life story can inspire others to live their own high-impact life no matter what they’ve experienced, or where they are starting from. 

Since listening to my own inner voice that was telling me I was no longer cut out for corporate life, I have started 3 successful businesses, become a best-selling author and spoken on over 200 stages.  All of my experiences have led me to do the work I most love doing, in a way that provides me the time and freedom to spend as much time as I want with my awesome fam jam. 

I have a wonderful husband of 20 years, 2 kids that were born 20 years apart, an awesome daughter-in-law and a scruffy fur-child named Olive who lives her best life with us every day. 

When not with my family, I am a voracious reader and can hammer out reading a book in a day and I stoke a teensy stationary addiction that often has me seeking out fancy notebooks & pens to add to my collection!

Having grown up in Russia, I approach business and life with a unique perspective from most of those around me. After moving to Canada, I did what everyone else was doing and worked at a ‘solid’ 9-5 job doing tech support. One day, as I arrived at work, something came over me and like a two-by-four to the head, it hit me: I am wasting my life.  

I knew I was meant for more than working for some company that didn’t appreciate me, where I felt I was making zero difference in the world. So I quit my job and took a stab at starting my own business and I built a 6-figure marketing agency from the ground up in less than a year.  

I then sold that agency to step even more into my true passion – helping entrepreneurs start and grow a business that supports the lifestyle they desire. I can see people’s potential before they even believe they have any, and I use that to help them create a high impact life and business. 

In the last 2 years I have been on over 200 stages and generated over 1 million dollars of revenue through these stages.  

When I’m not on a stage, I can be found nerding-out on tech tools, smashing it on the squash court, traveling the world or curled up reading with my gorgeous cat, Blondie. 

Testimonials & Featured Clients

Kat Halushka has listened to me bigger than I thought I was myself. And because of her experience, just recently, I’ve landed my first $30,000 client for one year’s worth of coaching which has been phenomenal.

Michael Mushlin, Founder @ Increased coaching

Kim has helped me beyond words. I have broken barriers I didn't know I had and done things now that I only ever talked about doing. She has a positive, go get them attitude and is truly inspiring with her own story of things she has accomplished
