Katie Shmelinski: "The Everyday Recipe That Changed My Life"

We're taking a coffee break with Katie Shmelinski who founded The Everyday Kitchen when a $7 cookbook sparked a recipe that would help her overcome some difficult postpartum seasons and eventually change her family's life.

Katie shares with us how she became an accidental entrepreneur when her famous sourdough donut recipe took Regina by storm. While navigating anxiety to put herself in the public eye and balancing raising three young children, Katie and her husband Mark have opened the first sourdough donut shop in North America and already have a second location on the way. Katie shares her recipe for how she found success through cooperative values, investment in herself, creating her own roadmap and authentic support in the community. Finally, we he hear about how COVID-19 impacted their business operations only five months after opening and how they donated all of their profits to support local organizations at the beginning of the pandemic.

It's one that you donut want to miss. 🍩
