Motivational and achievement presentations
Karen started her first business at the age of 22 with no formal education, no family connections and an economy in the tank thanks to the oil bust of early eighties in Houston, Texas. She built and led a successful advertising agency, and later a litigation communication company, for over 20 years. She also started a dot.com she would like to forget. Karen knows what it is like to be rejected, humiliated, broke and scared to death.
Her stories of finding inner strength, becoming a fearless dragon slayer and being a resourceful entrepreneur are inspiring, motivational and full of life lessons. These messages apply to young professionals, volunteers, students, second chapter baby boomers and veteran business people.
