Simplifying Business

Realising your true profit with the right tech, team and sales and marketing systems About KarenSubscribe to my newsletter

Sick and tired of not realising your potential?

There’s no fun in working long, hard hours only to end up with profits more suited to a “hobby business”. You feel your business is too complicated, you lack clarity and focus and you’re fed up with being stuck in a rut.

Flip Flop Marketing?

You’ve flip flopped from one marketing strategy to another based on the latest advice or new media marketing tool. It’s costing you, you’re beginning to wonder whether you’ll ever get your business to work and you’re now confused and lost on what to try to next.

Hi, I’m Karen Skidmore – business catalyst, online marketing expert and founder of GID School

I specialise in simplifying business for experts, coaches and trainers so that they can realise their true profit and potential for growth.

After a 15 year career with Hays Plc, I started my entrepreneurial journey in 2004 with my European Social Funded Women’s Enterprise Programme to help hundreds of women start up their own businesses. I founded a regional women’s networking group in 2005, created & ran a 100+ membership site for 3 years, wrote my first book in 2012 and launched dozens of online courses and group programmes over the past 12 years.

Growing and adapting my business around my family, as well as my own health and wellbeing, has been integral to everything I’ve created so that I’m able to run an international coaching business, working term times only. And with the right team and systems in place, I firmly believe you can create your own profit and growth on your terms, too.
