Sick and tired of not realising your potential?

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, and my mission is to love and play our way to profitable, sustainable and scalable business.
I’ve been running my own coaching and consulting company since 2004. After an 11-year fast track career with Hays Plc, as Regional Director in the accountancy recruitment division and then Operations Director for Hays.com online recruitment, my children were approaching school age and I realised how much I wanted a more flexible and fulfilling professional career.
After the usual rocky business start-up, I created my European Social Funded Women’s Enterprise Programme, which was instrumental in helping hundreds of women start up their own businesses across Surrey & Sussex. I founded a regional women’s networking group in 2005, created & ran a 100+ membership site for 3 years and launched dozens of online courses and group programmes over the past 13 years.
But in 2012, struggling with adrenal fatigue and hormonal imbalances, I was knackered from constantly launching new programmes and marketing campaigns. I wanted to play a bigger game but to enable my business to grow and for me to reach my full potential, it was no longer a case of “work harder”. I had to change the way I and my business worked. And it soon became apparent that my clients wanted this same change.
Through GID School, Momentum and The Academy, I’ve now created the framework and community to allow entrepreneurs, professionals, creatives and boutique business owners to simplify their businesses; to show them how to love and play their way to a profitable, sustainable and scalable business without the process impacting their health, wellbeing or family commitments.
This process is what I call Your True Profit Journey, a new way of doing business where it’s good to make profit and profit can be used for good, where we can have a business that centres around our vitality and values and we create the potential to scale and grow at a pace that fuels us rather than burns us out.

“What’s really interesting is that I am now getting LESS enquiries than I did before joining GID School but as almost 100% of people contacting me for a consultation are now saying YES to my newly priced programmes, my business is better than ever.”
Adele Stickland, Get Gorgeous
“Karen’s strategy and process has come from a holistic and universal view, which I love. Although I am obviously selling my courses, it doesn’t feel salesy and Karen’s teachings and support have helped me make webinars a critical part of my future business success.”
