Simplify, Clarify And Play A Bigger Game
Schedule a Catalyst Call today
Hi, I’m Karen Skidmore and I work with Game Changers; business owners who want to play bigger, change up how they make a difference and challenge me with their bravery to be seen.
The problem with changing up your game is that playing bigger exposes you. It can make you feel vulnerable and the crap that you believe about yourself allows you to doubt your true potential to make a difference.
And when you have no one to keep you accountable to that bigger vision and desire to do more, you shrink back and stay small and safe.
And this is where I can help.
The value I bring is the ability to see strategically how to design your business, where the potentially easy revenue opportunities and marketing systems are that flow with your communication style, energy flow and personality type, as well as the Sorceress gift of simplifying the complicated.
Once we have that vision and plan in place, my job is to keep people like you to account, to challenge you if I sense fear or vulnerability kicking you off course, as well as to keep a check of your energy flow to ensure you don’t burn out.
If any of this resonates with you or triggers a feeling that you’re keeping yourself small, then we need to talk.
Let me take a look at your business model and the way that you serve your clients and, although I obviously won’t have a magic pill to give you, I will be able to show you how you could make your business easier to grow.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where does this session take place?
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.

Introducing Karen Skidmore, Founder of GID School & Momentum
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.
Within 6 months of starting up, I had been awarded European Social Funds for my Women’s Enterprise Programme and Simply Marketing Workshops, 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 small 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.
What My Clients Have Said
Don’t just take it from me, let my clients do the talking.
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
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
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
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
