Work With Me

Scale your business, without breaking it.

It may hurt to admit it, but executing on your vision is actually getting harder, not easier.
Growth is great, but you’re coming to a point where your success has outpaced your internal operations.

Ready, already? Let's get started.

How I Can Help

I help business owners get clear of the chokepoints that throttle their business. Things like:

  • Operations overhauls (when your existing operational practices need an extreme makeover)
  • Team & Org chart optimization
  • Revenue forecasting, cost accounting, budgeting
  • Metrics, dashboards, KPIs – and knowing how to put these to good use
  • SOPs, onboarding, documentation
  • Software choices, automation, systemization

My goal is to move you swiftly and steadily to a place where your business can sustainably handle rapid top-line growth.

How We Can Work Together

Your business is at the stage where cookie-cutter offerings just don’t make sense. I’ve found a loose structure is best, and we customize our work together to fit your needs and your budget.

I’ll assess your current practices, help you build a prioritized ops roadmap, and then work closely to problem-solve and advise as you and your team implement.

A typical program runs 3-6 months and includes a series of hour-long Zoom sessions weekly or bi-weekly, and progress monitoring in-between calls. Sessions are designed to include a healthy mix of coaching, consulting and education/learning.

Apply to see if we’re a good fit together.

I’m a hands-on, high-touch consultant. I leverage frameworks I’ve developed over the years, but I don’t throw templates at you — so I can only work with a small number of clients at a time.

To see if we have a match, apply for a strategy session (and make sure you take the 7-Figure Ops Assessment).

You've worked hard to build a strong business and a strong brand –
it’s time to bring your internal operations up to the same level.

Karen has been a trusted advisor and A-level executor in my business. She created the operational infrastructure that allowed our company to scale to 7-figures — reducing team burnout and overwhelm in the process.

Karen helped us run our launches more smoothly, as well as analyze the results to make better decisions for the future. She also overhauled internal systems and replaced them with stronger ones which positioned us for fast and sustainable growth.

I’m forever grateful to Karen for transforming our company.  Thank you Karen for helping us scale to 7-figures!

Senior VP, First National Bank of Sioux Falls

Karen is an extraordinary leader – tough, bright, and the type of one-of-a-kind person you need to be part of those critical teams and events that have to get things done.

First, she has tremendous professional chops. She manages teams and projects with great acumen, is a razor sharp analyst who can see opportunities before they become problems, and can decide and execute even when the logistics are hard. Karen loves people, cares deeply for them, and will give the shirt off her back for her team.

Second, she cuts through the noise. Karen has an ability to see the signal in the noise and then get to the signal effectively and efficiently. It’s a rare talent.

Third, Karen tells truth to power and that takes guts and bravery. It’s hard to recommend someone professionally and personally more highly than I am recommending Karen.

As a service-based business owner, its challenging for me to work on client projects and still make time for opportunities and strategies that will grow my business. For over 4 years, Karen was an integral part of my business growth by helping me create streamlined, repeatable processes for the services I provide. Our partnership allowed me to scale without sacrificing my sanity.

Karen is one of the most creative and resourceful professionals I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is collaborative, focused and highly competent. Her intellect is keen and she is a total team player.

She listens to her clients needs, and uses well-honed analytic skills to create some of the best curriculum and content I have seen. She is an out-of-the-box thinker and and one of the most innovative, inspirational and powerful instructors and teachers I know.
