The event is FREE and covers things like marketing, product development, finance and management. Kim is known for her no-nonsense approach and for setting up an efficient business. Though there is no charge for the event, registration is required.

The event is especially geared towards business women – whether a solo entrepreneur, business owner, or consultant. It can help businesses of all sizes. “This is a event we love hosting because we can help others make changes in their businesses, no matter how small.”

Flynn says women who attend will change their mindset to overcome disadvantages many Utah women face in business. These are things such as lack of peers or mentors at higher levels, not getting funding needed for growth, and fear of thinking big in their business.

One attendee said, “My time with Kim was super refreshing because it was all practical applications. She really helped me learn how to get things done, build a business and create a step by step process to achieve pretty much anything I want to accomplish. I had the best year of a 12 year career after working with Kim!”
The event is limited to 100 people. Once it is sold out, it is sold out.

Tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Register here.

The first 50 people will get a copy of Kim’s book, “Playing Big: The Unsexy Truth About Succeeding in Business” (affiliate).

Here’s another comment, from a woman who attended a workshop:

Kim Flynn is the real deal! She is no nonsense. She is not here to motivate you. But she will bring out the best in you as you learn and grow through her programs. – Amy

Salt Lake City Mission Launches Season of Hope Campaign

Salt Lake City, Utah – Salt Lake City Mission Launches Season of Hope Campaign Beginning October 1st, 2015; “No One Should Go Hungry This Holiday Season”, “Fight Poverty” with Salt Lake City Mission Today!


Hunger and poverty affects almost 50 Million Americans, including 16 Million children. The face of poverty and homelessness has changed from the long soup kitchen lines of homeless men living on the streets to even longer lines of men, women, children – the millions of working-class parents struggling to feed their families.

“More than 369 Thousand Utah residents live below the national poverty line” Says, Pastor Wayne Wilson, CEO of Salt Lake City Mission.

“Not only are we seeing more women and children coming for help” Says Pastor Joe Vazquez, Assistant Director at the Mission “But there is a new class of SUV poor”. People that have been pushed out of their homes because of rising cost, lay-offs or reduced to part-time employment. They own vehicles but cannot afford to feed their families. Two out of every three households dealing with hunger have at least one working adult.

Many people are struggling in this weak economy. Surely most could use some additional finances but, nearly 40% of these households have to choose between purchasing food, paying rent and utilities, or other cost. Even the Mission is experiencing the biggest fight of its life, financially! Thousands more homeless are coming to the Mission in crisis and in desperate need; One organization that fed the homeless was forced to quit because they couldn’t afford to do it anymore; costs are up higher than ever… more organizations are soliciting donations for other frivolous causes; Presidential elections are consuming donations at alarming rates while men, women and children are starving and dying on our streets … “We as a community need to do more!!!”, says Pastor Wayne “But the Mission’s resources are stretched way to thin”, “WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW!!!”

This year’s Launch of the “Season of Hope” includes many regular methods of help including food and clothing drives for which the Mission is known for. As well as, some new initiatives to “Fight Poverty.”

· Subscribe, advertise, or host Salt Lake Street News

· Host a food, clothing, or hygiene product drive

· Host a Meal Card Fundraiser

· Scan Away Hunger

· Volunteer at one of our many local outreaches

Salt Lake City Mission exists to unite the community to reach out and impact poverty locally. “No one in our city should ever go hungry or risk dying on our streets!” exclaimed Pastor Wayne Wilson.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.


Salt Lake City, UT,  — On January 24th, 2011, after a series of sexual assaults at York University, a member of the Toronto Police told students that “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized.” This statement caught the attention of local citizens who were tired of language like this being used to dehumanize women and to shift the burden of violence prevention from perpetrators to victims. They organized a protest called SlutWalk with the goal of eliminating victim-blaming and slut-shaming (slurring individuals, especially women, for their actual or imagined sexual proclivities) in law, culture, and the media.

Since the initial Toronto event, SlutWalk has gone viral. Marches and rallies continue to be held across the globe.

This year in Utah, SlutWalk SLC is holding their 5th annual march and rally on October 3rd, at 1:00 pm. Strategically held during Domestic Violence Awareness Month in response to comments by a politician this past legislative session who suggested it was okay to have sex with an unconscious partner.

In addition, this year SlutWalk SLC is announcing Sexual Assault Survivor Community Advocacy Training in partnership with the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault, to encourage survivors of sexual violence and allies to become more involved in the coming legislative session.

SlutWalk will be held October 3rd from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Participants will meet at City Hall, then march to the Capitol where they will be addressed by survivors of sexual assault who became activists. The rally will also feature musicians, and tables from organizations in the field of sexual assault prevention.

Charitable Giving in Utah: More Important Than Ever!

During the last few years – through this tough economic upheaval most of us have had to make certain adjustments in our daily activities, such as: cutting spending, lowering gas consumption, shopping at second hand or bargain stores. People of most economic levels have to make changes. People on the fringe or (paycheck to paycheck) are “trying to survive”. If they lose their job, or get their hours cut back, with no reserve, they’ll wind up in the street. This is happening as we speak. Those of us who serve the homeless are not in the position to cut back. We are seeing more people coming to us for help than ever! We are the net below the safety net. If we cut back, the people we serve will find themselves in extreme dire circumstances. Just last year alone 70 men, women, youth died needlessly on the streets of Salt Lake. Of the Seventy people that died approximately 27% were women and many were first time homeless. Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox said “What we do know is, with more access to affordable health care and housing services, these deaths can be prevented,”

Looking at statistics from the 2014 Utah Comprehensive Report on Homelessness. We see that of .47% 2,900,872 of the Utah’s population are homeless. There are more than 14,351 people across Utah who are homeless every night. More than 6,312 are individuals in families with minor children. Right now there are 12,171 homeless school children in Utah. 11,393 are doubled with another family or living without adequate facilities like cars, camps, etc. 778 are living in shelters or in places not meant for permanent housing. Sad to say, the fastest growing population is individuals less than 21 years old, they are homeless school children and they make up 29% of the homeless population. This group has increased more than 67% in the last 5 years. 38% of the homeless have no permanent place to live because of mental illness or substance abuse. 27% of these are veterans who have already sacrificed so much for our country and are suffering from PTSD.  Another 46% are families with no place to call home.


So who are the people we call homeless? They could be neighbors, friends or relatives. All of us know someone who has been touched by disasters, poverty, foreclosures, alcoholism, low income, injustice, substance abuse, death of loved one, or mental illness. Living in a tough economy today many of us could suddenly fall into these statistics. Poverty knows no boundaries, addiction knows no classes. People helping people continues to be one of the greatest resources in our country. Non-Profits spearheading local efforts to meet the needs of tens of thousands.

Thrift stores, food pantries and homeless service providers are seeing a major increase in shoppers to their stores and demands for their services. People are flocking to these businesses more than ever – People from more upper incomes than normally are also visiting consignment or thrift stores and food pantries – The only problem – the thrift store and pantry shelves are emptying fast because donating is way down. More people are holding on to items they might have otherwise given. We are in dire need of funds and donations of warm clothing, coats, blankets, hygiene items, etc.

Working together with local individuals, businesses, foundations, and churches the mission has saved taxpayers millions of dollars over its life span. One report calculated the cost of providing services for one homeless person accessing services in Utah was more than $16,000 per person, per year. With your help we have provided millions of meals and other vital services to tens of thousands of “neighbors” facing hardship.

Last year alone Salt Lake City Mission provided over $3,497,811 in Out-Reach, food, Clothing, Literacy, Education and other goods and services free to all of the greater Salt Lake region’s most vulnerable men, women, and children. 93.4% of every dollar given to the mission goes to program related expense. Salt Lake City Mission is an Award Winning 22 year old trusted GuideStar Gold Level Transparent Organization and great return on your investment on all levels. Most of all it is an eternal investment in the lives of our community.

The Salt Lake City Mission is a non-denomination Christian Mission Church offering services to anyone in need. The Mission provides the homeless, disadvantaged and chemically dependant people in the Intermountain area with long-term recovery programs such as The Second Chance Ranch and UpWord Motion programs for men. We also provide food & clothing, as well as biblical counseling, guidance and most importantly, A Way Out!
