Who is Karen Skidmore?
If we’ve not met yet, my name is Karen Skidmore. 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 career.
I had high hopes in my first year and my bright eyes and bushy tail meant that I threw myself into my new life of self-employment. After a rocky start, I created my European Social Funded Women’s Enterprise Programme which was instrumental in helping hundreds of women start up their own businesses. I founded a regional women’s networking group in 2005, created & ran a 100+ membership site for 3 years, wrote my first book in 2012 and launched dozens of online courses and group programmes over the past 13 years.
But four years ago, struggling with peri-menopausal systems and adrenal fatigue, I was knackered from constantly launching new programmes and marketing campaigns. The stop-start was exhausting and I knew I had to get off the roller coaster.
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 my business worked.
I now work with clients to help simplify their businesses; to show them how to get profitable growth without it impacting their health, wellbeing, family commitments or core values. I firmly believe that with the right tech, team and systems in place, you too can create your own profit and growth on your terms, too.

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.
Rosie Letts, Nutritional Therapist
“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.”
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
If this feels right, you'll know. This call could be the catalyst that you need right now.
