What people say about Karen Lawrence:
Karen’s Personal Message to You:
Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here!
Since I was a little girl, my mission has always been to help others grow. It just feels so good knowing I can actually make a difference in even one person’s life…and I’ve always held onto that feeling! I come from a family of teachers, caregivers, and leaders and have always known that it is also my calling to teach and lead…in a caring way. My first “supervisory” position in business was at the tender age of 17. It was my job to train and lead a small team of salespeople (about 15). I loved it…and, I was good at it! Life progressed, awards and accolades were received…and, I evolved, learned and grew.
Over the years, my passions tended toward human behavior, people/project management, marketing, and finance. Lo and behold…those are some of the key components toward sales and business success! Decades have come and gone and my passions remain the same. Now, I am honored to be able to share my wisdom, failures, and successes with you. Are you ready to learn the “truth” about business and personal growth…and how you can excel?
Your highest and best always!
Karen has operated and created multi-million dollar businesses and increased many clients’ net worth by hundreds of thousand of dollars…and in a few cases, millions of dollars. She has worked with celebrities, professional athletes, and multi-millionaires. Always high ranking in sales and management in previous careers, she was respected and admired by her peers and superiors. There have been many achievement awards awarded to her over the years for sales, service, productivity and her leadership skills. Karen is a proven leader.
