KST Telemarketing – Kat Sloan

Kat started the company to aid small-medium-sized businesses in their business growth by offering services that will ease some of theirKat Sloan Profile time and stress.  Many business owners do not have the time to make their own cold calls, maintain their database lists, etc.  In fact, many suffer from "Phone-aphobia" and would rather do anything but get on the phone.  So at KST they take on that responsibility, providing exceptional customer service for your business while creating and maintaining databases, setting appointments, designing websites, creating web videos, and much, much more.

When she was a little girl, she used to dream that she had her own business.  She would set up her bedroom like an office and pretend her stuffed animals were her customers.  Now that dream has been realized.

It was her experiences working for other people that finally gave her that final "push" to go out on her own.

Honesty and integrity are number one with Kat, especially after seeing what was happening in other businesses that she worked for, so she determined to be very tough-minded about this one and hold her standards high.

As a natural people person, Kat finds that telemarketing is a breeze for her, and she absolutely loves doing it.  Kat says that when we are deciding to go out on our own, we need to be totally passionate about what we are doing for our business, so we never tire of doing it.

She specializes in:

Appointment Setting; Database Creation; Virtual Assistant Services; B2B Cold Calling; Web Design; Website/YouTube Videos; Photography; Training Manual/ Business Guide Creation; Email Campaigns; Seminars; Phone Training/Workshops.

Triunity Martial Arts Studio – Mitra Castano

Mitra Castano was born in Shawrude, Iran and escaped in the late 1970's when the Islamic revolution started.  The family packed oneMitra Castano - Gloves Up suitcase between the five of them and left for Bangkok, Thialand never to see their home land ever again.

Mitra's family lived in Thialand for about four years as refugees and then moved to Canada as immigrants in the early 1980's.  Her father wanted her to change her name to a christian name, but even then, at a young age, she fought for things that were important to her and fought to keep her given name to retain her heritage.  Reflecting back Mitra said, "I guess you could say that because of my past, and having experienced many things starting from the age of 12, I became somewhat of a fighter and survivor.  I fought to adapt and to fit in with my new surroundings.  It was not an easy transition from my own culture and then to the Thia culture and then again to the Westernized way of thinking.  Yet I learned to live and cope in Canada."

Nine years ago Mitra embraced the martial arts and made it a way of life.  The positive change that it had made in her own children's lives was more than enough to convince her that this was an important investment.

When her then instructor left the school that they were originally members of, Mitra and many others left as well.  She soon realized that they needed their own place to train, and her then instructor was out of a teaching position, needed a place to teach, so Mitra offered her garage where they ended up training for many months.

Through the heat of summer and the cold of winter, kids from all over came to train at this location.  It was no frills and no belts, but just hard training and a passion to learn the martial arts.

The "Garage School" kept growing and Mitra realized that they needed a bigger space to train in.  The idea of starting a school called Triunity Martial Arts Studios was conceived and it wasn't long until all of the "garage orphans" would have a fully equipped place to train, sweat, and have fun.  They finally had a place they could call home Triunity Martial Arts Studios.

Martial Arts is in Mitra's heart and is her true passion.
