Thank you – I have been dwelling on this idea for my training for over a year. Your GID Programme has driven out more clarity of thought on the programme in the 4 or 5 weeks we have been going than in the previous 12 months, never mind all the practical stuff that I have achieved towards actually making it a reality.

I have been unable to sleep with the excitement and awe of how my sales page is developing and somehow me too and my relationship with my business. The GID Marketing Programme has transformed that overwhelm, uncertainty and stuck feelings in to joy, liberation and excitement. Thanks to you and the GID Programme, this whole process and experience has taken me off the country roads driving in a worn out car, to the motorway in an Audi Q5! And for this I am eternally grateful.

I have delivered a campaign that delivered increased sales for a particular product and it has opened up a communication channel with new potential customers that wouldn’t have been there otherwise. You have used simple language and given me deliverable actions ... not just a load of jargon!

We've addressed head-on some key weaknesses in our "offer" in an open and constructively critical way ... and came up with some concrete action points. You didn't shirk at all at the ground we had to cover in the four pretty intensive hours. You tell it as it is. Invaluable.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Profitable Products programme, it has exceeded my expectations and given me the courage and tools to take a leap forward with my business, which is exactly what I signed up for. This programme could not have come at a better time for me and my business. With plenty of encouragement, support, ideas and accountability this programme keeps you on track to get started and start selling your products with confidence. I love Karen’s no nonsense approach, her business experience and inspiring story.

Karen's learning programs are packed with content, and her style of delivery makes it easy to learn, ask questions and engage. The 90 minute class was terrific, and I was thrilled with all of the materials that she provided after the class. Karen is First Class!

Karen is simply fantastic to work with. She’s focussed, enthusiastic, energetic and a lovely person. Karen is very genuine and honest. If she doesn’t think something will work, she will make positive suggestions on how to improve it. I am looking forward to working with her on an ongoing basis to achieve my other goals. With Karen I know my chances are significantly higher.

I used Karen Skidmore to help me create a successful and profitable web business, with as many tasks as possible automated. Her skill in breaking down what seems to be a rather daunting task into extremely manageable bite size chunks. As a result you finish the session confident that it’s all very manageable. She has helped me formulate my long term goal and then get a monthly plan to move forwards towards achieving it.

I came to Karen because I felt I needed serious direction for my marketing efforts. What I liked best about working with you was your directness; your perspicacity about what is going and the clarity with which you give advice. Your advice is to the point which means you are not wasting people's time!
