Who is Karen Skidmore?
After 14 years as a Business Director with Hays Plc, I’d had enough of corporate life. This is now my 13th year in business, having started up originally as a life coach when my eldest daughter started school in 2004.
I was a crap life coach; I struggled to find enough clients and spent the first 6 months getting more and more disillusioned and demotivated. The day I decided I needed to stop being a life coach and start being a business owner, was where it all changed for me.
Today I’ve achieved what most business owners feel is impossible; to create a profitable lifestyle business which enables me to run an international coaching business during term times only. My first breakthrough with my business was my European Social Funded Women’s Enterprise Programme in 2005; working in partnership with the University of Surrey and helping hundreds of women to launch their businesses. I went on to set up my own women’s networking group in the same year which ran for 4 years across 4 locations in Surrey & Hampshire, ran a hugely popular membership site, The Web Tech Club, for 3 years, wrote my first book “Shiny Shiny” in 2012 and launched dozens of online courses and group programmes over the past decade, ranging in price from £25 to £15,000. Growing and adapting my business around my family and my own health and well-being, has been integral to everything I’ve created.
So I hope you can see this session is NOT just going to be lovely chat! There is the wealth of experience being brought to you during this Simply Focused session.

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
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
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 either on the phone or via skype, whichever you prefer. All I do ask is that if it is by phone, it’s a landline number. And if you are outside of the UK, I can call you on skype.
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 for 45 minutes. If we get to the end of the call and you 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.
How do I pay?
When you click the “Book Your Call” button, you’ll be taken to an order form where you can pay either with a debit card, credit card or by PayPal. Once your payment is confirmed, you’ll be automatically forwarded to my online diary where you can then book a time and day and complete the short form. If you have any problems working through this process, call my assistant, Alexia, on +44(0)1427 607745 during UK office hours or email me direct at Karen@KarenSkidmore.com.
We will email you confirmation of your booking, as well so check your inbox for the follow up messages from me.
If this feels right, you'll know. This call could be the catalyst that you need right now.
If you still have a question before you book, then email me direct at Karen@KarenSkidmore.com or call my office number to speak to my assistant, Alexia, on +44(0)1428 607745.
