Katy has been an instructor at Angelo State University in the Chemistry & Biochemistry Department for about two years. She loves her work but she is also an artist. Katy is passionate about painting. She has found that San Angelo is rapidly becoming a very popular place for the artisan community.
Katy decided it was time to start her own small business and met with Advisor Paul Howard of the Angelo State University • Small Business Development Center. Paul suggested Katy work on a business plan and also discussed how to register her business and where to obtain a sales tax permit.
Katy says, “The SBDC helped me with starting my business and learning about the Comptroller, bank accounts, taxes, websites and setting goals.”
