Get you and your business flowing

Schedule a Catalyst Call today

Hi, I’m Karen Skidmore. For the past 15 years, I have worked with entrepreneurs and business leaders who are stuck, out of flow with their business or have hit an income ceiling.

If you want to do more, but you’re confused, overwhelmed and stuck.

If you know you want to step up and grow your business, but you feel you’re bouncing from one task on your to-do list to the next, with no idea on what your overall strategy or plan is, except to find the next lot of clients.

I can help you.

Let me take a look at the way that you currently serve your clients, what your future plans are and I can show you how to create the right business model, marketing systems and team in place so that your business flows with your communication style, energy, time and financial goals you’ve set yourself.

I’ll show you how to create a profitable, sustainable and scalable business … and without burning out in the process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where does this session take place?
There’s no travelling or need to get dressed up. This is a virtual meeting where we can speak via online conference, so all you’ll need is a headset, wifi and either a desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet.
What do I need to do to prepare for my call?
If I feel I need any documentation or information before we speak, I will contact you. However, this is rarely needed so don’t worry about preparing anything unless I request it. All you need to do right now is schedule the time you’ve selected in your own diary.

I’d recommend you create time to collect your thoughts at least 10 minutes before our call is due to start and grab yourself a glass of water or cup of tea/coffee. Plus schedule another 20 to 30 minutes after our call to allow you process our discussion and diarise the actions we decide you should take.

Finally, you’ll need a notebook and pen for taking notes and make sure you’re in a place that you won’t be disturbed. Don’t book this session while you’re travelling, for example, or working in a public place such as a coffee shop. This is your time to work ON your business, not IN your business.

How long is the session?
This one-off session is scheduled to run from 20 to 45 minutes. If we feel you still need further support or guidance, we can, of course, discuss how working in one of my programmes may be able to help grow your business. This is often how many of my clients come to work with me but there’s absolutely no obligation to take things further; especially if your plan turns out to be easy enough for you to execute by yourself.

The Momentum Team

A combined total of 30 years of small business mentoring and marketing experience from your senior coaches, Karen and Melina, and personal welcome and support from our Client & Operations Manager, Alexia, means that you are getting assistance from one of the most experienced business growth support team in the UK.

Karen Skidmore.
Founder & Creator of the Grow Strong™ business principles.

Karen has 25+ years' business experience and set up her first coaching business in 2004, after a 10 career with Hays Plc in various commercial and business director roles. She began to develop Momentum's unique growth project management and planning process in 2014 when she realised her clients were in need of longer-term strategic thinking to help them with their business growth plans.

Her talents lie in spotting growth opportunities and understanding the operational needs of the business; the marketing systems, business processes and infrastructure needed for a business leader and their team to work simpler and make a bigger impact, as well as deliver 5-star customer service. Described as a 'quiet storm' by some, she will always have your back and stretch you to think bigger and step into your full potential.

Melina Abbott, Senior Coach

Melina Abbott joined the Momentum team in 2019 to support the continuing growth of the community. Melina is a ninja sales queen and experienced coach, exceptionally brilliant at spotting patterns of thinking that stop many from achieving their growth plans. She helps Momentum clients implement all the different pieces of the sale process itself - ensuring they’re set up to generate sales quickly and with ease – as well as diving into the inner game where clients’ feelings around money value are reflected in the income they generate.  

Melina is brilliant at shining a light on these patterns and limiting beliefs which may have been holding clients back for years.  Once they’re seen she then supports clients transform and heal them so the right business opportunities start to flow; seemingly effortlessly.

Alexia Padgham, Client & Operations Manager

Alexia Padgham has been supporting Karen in her business since 2007 so she knows exactly what her clients and community members need to help them in their business growth journeys. She personally welcomes all new members into Momentum and ensures you know where to find all the resources available to you.

If you need your password resetting, times or links to any of the calls, she's here to help.

What My Clients Have Said

Don’t just take it from me, let my clients do the talking.

I love Karen's straight talking, no-bullshit approach.

Sam Pilling

Bite Me Marketing

Quiet the chatter and calm the creative whirlwind

“What I love about working with Karen is that she lives and breathes the KISS principle. She understands what each person needs for their business and guides them down the simplest and most productive path to achieve their goals. Her advice and counsel helped quiet all the chatter in my head and calm the creative whirlwind.”

Wendy Deyell

Wondrous Wanderers

I worked with 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.

Mary Waring

Wealth For Women

Perfect mix of down to earth advice, encouragement & kick up the backside

“The prospect of launching and promoting my first online product felt overwhelming, scary and lonely. So many new technologies to learn. Plus the prospect of writing sales letters filled me with horror. Karen gave me the perfect mix of down to earth marketing advice, positive encouragement, combined with the (gentle and friendly) kick up the backside I needed. Not only did the product launch successfully (without technical glitches), it also met sales targets.”

Mark Ridsell Smith

Vertical Veg Club

Karen gets to the heart of your business and business objectives with her great questions and ability to really listen. She will be ambitious for your success and really helps translate that into practical, actionable steps.

Frances Taylor

Sprout Coaching

Ability to laser in and identify precisely what needs to be done

“Working you has given me a new approach to marketing my business in ways I just wouldn’t have thought of. You really know your stuff and you’ve got an ability to laser in and identify precisely what needs to be done.You peel away all the stuff that we don’t need to worry about to instead focus on a targeted plan.”

Cory Chapamn

Professional Organiser

Working with Karen I was able to grow and expand my business awareness in a small setting with people I have got to know, and whom I trust. I felt we have pushed ourselves more in this environment, but it is also very supportive. It has also enabled me to make some big shifts in my mental attitude about things at work which I was avoiding and finding uncomfortable to deal with, and this shift has and will make a big impact on my business function and profitability.

I love working with Karen as she is tough but with silk gloves, she never makes you feel small but she also knows that you can do more than you are so, it encourages you to raise your game.
