I loved working with Karen! She coached me as I was readjusting the primary focus of my business. When I started working with Karen, I was feeling very overwhelmed by all the different directions parts my business were going. Through coaching with her, I was able to define the different services I offer as a coach and facilitator. More importantly she helped me to clarify the relationship of these divisions under one business, and helped me understand how best to communicate to two segments of ideal clients!!! I finally was able to move forward with energy and enthusiasm in both areas. I really appreciated her ability to ask me just the right questions that ensured I was fully behind and owned my decisions. Our work together expressed a perfect amount of patience, while keeping me focused on my intention with action steps that were specific, powerful, and doable. This was just what I needed! It really feels great to move ahead with my marketing with confidence and clarity! I recommend her wholeheartedly!Mary S. Smith
Working with Karen as my coach was the best decision Id ever made for my career and lifestyle. Her ability to thoroughly listen to her clients, ask important questions, and uncover much needed answers is very skillfully used. Karens warm, optimistic personality makes you feel like youre talking with a best friend whom youve known for years. I really valued her high level of positivity and insight to help me uncover my innate strengths while creating a practical, action oriented path forward to live my best life.Ann R.
I began working with Karen to address some very specific work-related challenges I was experiencing. I was really struggling to meet deadlines, and had begun to experience a sort of dread when it came to many of my duties. After just one session with Karen, I walked away with, not only a sense of relief, but a renewed sense of excitement for my upcoming projects. Through our conversation, she helped me pinpoint the issues that were at the root of my challenges, and then helped me develop a practical plan to address them. Over the course of our coaching relationship, I have come to regard Karen as a friend and confidante. Through our ongoing work together, I have developed practical tools to aid in my productivity, become more motivated and inspired in my role, and developed a deeper understanding of what it is in my work that gives me meaning and purpose.Jessie
