HEY, I'M KAREN
Six-Figure Professional Crafter, Empowerment Coach, Michaels Stores National Instructor, Mindset Mentor
As a coach, I empower women to tap into their unique skills and talents to create the business and life they love.
When I first started my journey into the craft world, I had no idea what I was in store for. I THOUGHT I was just making things for fun and if I sold a thing or two that would be a bonus. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be right here, right now.
Going through this journey has given me a clear perspective on what it really feels like to be a creative, specifically a crafter in business. Often, I felt lost and confused about what my next move should be in my business. It was scary and lonely. I had no one to ask. I had to just figure it out.
Every day that passed without clarity in my business was another day of anxiety and frustration. I knew there had to be another way and that I was meant for more than this.
I have been an entrepreneur for over 25+ years. I've done all the things. From selling cars to beauty products. I have sold multiple millions of dollars in real estate, owned businesses and have been successful in more "traditional" businesses and companies. I had to ask myself why I wasn't doing the same things I was doing in the other businesses in my creative business. Why was it so hard to do the things I knew how to do and I knew needed to be done? Then it clicked.
I got serious about my business and passionate about showing people how to do the same.
I realized that although some business principles are the same, the business of crafting has some distinct differences.
As a creative we are very sensitive about our 'ish. It doesn't matter if we have a PhD in marketing and sales, if we don't have confidence in ourselves, we won't have confidence in our crafts. We won't do things we need to do to be successful, even if we know them. That was me, playing on Team No Confidence.
I started working on me. My environment changed and then my mindset changed. I started helping others do the same through my lives on social media and that is what led me to my purpose.
I wanted to create a platform that helped women really "see" the greatness within themselves and empower them to tap into their creativity and create the business and life they love.
I'm on a mission
I am determined to empower as many women as I can to use their talents and skills to heal themselves and to build a thriving business. I am transparent about my journey and personal challenges in hopes that it will inspire others to have the courage to make real changes in their lives. These changes can lead them gaining the strength that changes generations.
I believe that my mission is to empower women to thrive through creativity. I believe that women have the power to rise through any adversity. Sometimes they just need someone to remind them of who they are and that their gifts are worthy.
"What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals."
