Dr. Katrin Schmidt

Veterinarian Dr. Katrin Schmidt


Katrin Schmidt


Veterinarian, practice software consultant, Simcoe Veterinary Hospital, Coldwater Road Animal Clinic, Huronia Veterinary Emergency Clinic


Goslar, Germany

Current Location:

Barrie, Ontario

First Job:

Waitressing at a golf club. Later, grooming polo ponies.

The best invention in the world is:

The smartphone/tablet/Internet—tools to get jobs done from anywhere.

I’m most inspired by:

Achievement (work-life balance). Those people who do everything—and gracefully on top of that.

The best decision I ever made was:

To become an entrepreneur and work with other people instead of for other people.

The wildest goal I’ve ever set for myself is/was:

Every goal—if you ask the team! But it doesn’t seem to be so bad once you get there.

My biggest advice for new entrepreneurs is:

Figure out what you want to do and what you like to do, and how to put those things together. Then fill in the blanks, start with the end in mind, and work backward to figure out the beginning.

In ten years, I will be:

Doing more of what I’m currently doing, hopefully with greater ease and efficiency, having more platinum Free Days*, more cash, continued great health, and freedom to be, do, and have.

*Free Days™ are part of the Strategic Coach® concept, The Entrepreneurial Time System®. A Free Day™ is a 24-hour period free from all work-related thinking and activities.
