Now as the premier coach for 50-somethings, she combines her diverse and extensive skills with her natural blend of creativity, enthusiasm and humor to help Baby Boomers make their fifties the gateway to the best half of life.
OK — that's the official version. Now, in her own words, this is how Karen got here:
A few years back, I was sitting in my nice corporate office contemplating a career path that looked incredible on paper. I had climbed the proverbial ladder of success, navigating through the practice of law and the executive ranks of corporate America. But as I rolled into my fifties, I had this nagging feeling all my efforts had landed me on the wrong ladder of success!
Turning 50 made me focus on how I wasn't living in sync with my life purpose and values, my creativity was stifled, my personal life was shoved into a corner and I just plain wasn't happy.
So with courage I didn't think I had, I headed off to discover what I really wanted out of my second half of life. My midlife crisis has been a "roller coaster ride" with lows like the devastating loss of my father, my mother's decline from Alzheimer's, divorce and my own serious health challenge to the highs of becoming an aunt for the first time and writing my first book, 50 Ways To Have An Amazing Life After 50!
Along the way, I found a wonderful life coach who helped me get through the roadblocks AND discover my own fulfilling career as a life coach. I now help 50 plus women and men get past mid life crisis symptoms with a focused vision and an action plan for an amazing life after 50.
And yes it's possible! My fifties have sometimes been a bumpy ride but I can honestly say that at this point in my life, I'm happy with where I am and, more importantly, with WHO I am.
