Let’s just say, she’s in the business of helping small businesses.
For Attorney Kate Hynes nothing is more rewarding than helping small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs alike to start or grow a business venture. From formation to succession and everything in between, she’s working hard to help clients turn their entrepreneurial vision into a full-fledged reality.
And that’s just the beginning.
Have a big brand idea for your business? Kate can help with that, too. She’s racked up plenty of experience handling issues like intellectual property and trademarks, and she’s not stopping anytime soon. Whether you’re looking to launch a new brand or protect an existing one, trust her to get you just where you need to go.
But wait, there’s more. Here’s what Kate had to say:
What does being a successful female entrepreneur mean to you?
Being a successful entrepreneur means learning about the needs and desires of the community that I serve. I focus my efforts on understanding the struggles, risks and triumphs of the community entrepreneur by assisting businesses with legal challenges that they face in their daily operations. By serving my community in this capacity, I help other entrepreneurs in our community thrive.
What would you say was your biggest challenge in building your own entrepreneurial success?
Not being a native of York County, it has been a challenge to have the confidence to put myself out there as a trusted advisor in a new community. Even though this has been a new experience, I have found getting to know my fellow community members greatly rewarding.
What advice would you offer to aspiring female entrepreneurs?
Never doubt your inherent abilities and that you have a voice that is essential to the conversation. Celebrate the differences you bring as a homogenous environment is the enemy of ingenuity.
In your opinion, what does the future of entrepreneurship look like?
The future of entrepreneurship is bright. Millennials are often the butt of pop-culture jokes, but I see my generation as a group of individuals with a thirst for creating.
