What got you here, is not going to get you there

Hi, I’m Karen Skidmore. I know that whatever path you’ve taken already, it’s probably not the path you need to take for your next stage in your business growth.

At every stage of your business growth, you need to adjust, refresh and sometimes knock everything down in order to rebuild a bigger, better and more fun version of what you want.

And this is where I can help you …

One day with me and you’ll discover exactly where your leverage points are, what systems you can create and the team to build to achieve your business vision.

Discover your leverage points

The good news is that you probably have got everything you need to get the business you want. But you need help in seeing where the bottlenecks are and where to focus so you get the best results on the terms you want.

Design a business central to your vitality

It’s easy to simply work harder and push through but over time, your health and wellbeing are going to suffer. Let’s get you re-connected with your core values and focus on building your business that will fuel your vitality, rather than suck your energy dry.

Discover the simplest, easiest way forward

If you stare at your problem long enough, you lose all perspective and forget your bigger goal. Let’s cut out all your “should-be” stuff and focus on the easiest, quickest and simplest way forward. Less is most definitely more.

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.

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

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.

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

Joining The Academy has really made me up my game this year. I have been on a steep learning curve with my business marketing journey and having Karen and the rest of the group to help, support, challenge and motivate me has been invaluable. Simple things like critiqued a sales page, focussing on one goal and planning for the year ahead have all helped to make this year my best year yet. Since joining I have finally launched my signature programme "The Wardrobe That Works" (after 2 years in my head!); I have a realistic plan for my business growth as well as the support of a great team of colleagues who will give me honest and constructive feedback. Karen has a great knack of being able to find the right words and tactics to make your marketing work and attract your ideal clients. This is a Mastermind Group that will really make you think differently about your business and it's potential. Gail Morgan
