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.

My two core qualities are innovation and passion so I don’t care about following the same-old industry rules. There’s every chance your market place is too noisy for you to be heard and if you are trying to do the same as everyone else, it’s keeping you on a treadmill. It’s exhausting, isn’t it?

I believe that everyone has the potential to do great things in their business but, to achieve this, you need the right revenue streams, systems, team and plan in place that fuels you and the way you serve your clients. If you want to up-level your thinking and want a fresh, out-of-the-box perspective on how to market and grow your business, but lack the know-how, time or confidence to take action, then we need to talk.

Is the bird song louder?

Is the bird song louder?

As I write this, it’s the end of the fourth week of lockdown here in the UK. And the question over whether the bird song is louder than previous years is one that I’ve been pondering on for the past few days. I took a break from my hour exercise today and sat on the...
