"Taking the coaching course with Karen was exactly what I needed.  I was on the fence about my business idea; she helped me really think about my "why", and to start getting specific about who my customers will be.  She was able to answer all of my questions with her broad knowledge base.  Highly recommend!

"Karen is an OG who is invested in the next generation of designers, brands, and is really setting herself at a value to help them. I love her heart and level of interest in my doings when I bought her coaching calls. She was able to think with me, for me, and help me understand design, mft'ing, and branding on a pro level for launch.."

As someone who is new to managing my own brand, I knew I needed expert guidance. That said, I also brought a lot of my own skills to the table. Working directly with Karen allowed me to communicate what I needed and what I didn't, and she flawlessly adjusted her approach to meet my needs. She gave me multiple pieces of practical advice that I could act on immediately and helped me map out a plan for the future. As we met I didn't feel like I hired a consultant, I felt like I had temporarily added an expert to my team. Her impact on my project grew with each session we had, and I expect to be buying more consulting time in the future - for the time being I have too many things to work on from our initial sessions!

I just finished KAREN'S COURSE (Setting Prices For Your Apparel Brand) and i am so happy that I took the time to purchase the full course. I have gained so much knowledge about the garment industry that I had no idea existed. Karen's course was so easy to follow and comprehend, very clear and concise information and some extra tidbits. I highly recommend getting the course . I plan to review and use this wealth of information for the foreseeable future .
