Here we sit down with Karen, to know a bit more about her journey as a business coach.
What inspired Karen to become an entrepreneur?
Karen: My purpose behind my own story. I never wanted to be my own boss or become an entrepreneur. In reality, I was confused and distracted by finding purpose. For some time, I let things, people, and places get in the way. My niche was always in front of me. I think fear plays a big part in diving into your purpose. Three years ago, I made a commitment to build my purpose and make them alive. Motivation inspired me and dedication to who I really was.
How did Karen get started?
Karen: I got started in 2019, later that year. I started a podcast that implements my coaching habits and expertise. I eventually started writing my business goals and plans. Marketing became easy after a year and a half with practice and other professional peers. I went back to school to get certified and receive my diploma in Life accredited coaching and health/nutrition. I stayed consistent day and night getting the business built and still building and progressing every day.
What was your biggest startup challenge? What steps did you take to overcome it? What did you learn?
Karen: My biggest startup challenge was funding for all the resources I needed. I do recommend extra savings for trademarks and marketing systems. The most influential free marketing you can do is “organic marketing”. It is important to invest, and every little bit helps your business. I did in fact receive discounts from agencies because I purchased three websites and podcasting. There are discounts you can save on monthly business costs that will help your business grow.
What is the Most Memorable Thing Did Karen Done Since you Started your Business?
Karen: The most memorable thing I have done since I started my business was setting monthly and yearly goals. Planning my business and the structure I want to see come forth has also been a memorable source for me.
What is one book you recommend, and why?
Karen: One book I recommend is ” What on Earth Am I Here For?” by Rick Warren. It gives you everyday discovery to finding your purpose and why you should use it. Finding your path to lie is valuable not only to you but to others.
What are your top 3 favourite online apps, tools, or resources and what do you love about them?
Karen: Three online apps I like are Zoom, Restream, Calendly. I love these apps because it helps me with appointments and schedules.
In terms of legacy, what is the mark you’d like to leave on the world?
Karen: The mark I would like to leave on earth would be to love and find purpose on purpose. Everyone is unique and special in their own way, and someone needs to hear your voice.
In one sentence, what’s the best advice you’d give to someone just starting out on their entrepreneurial journey?
Karen: Things will not be easy but will be worth it in the end.
