When Karen became an entrepreneur in the mid-90’s, she says she felt like a "trail blazer."

"I left the security of a full-time position as the first Eau Claire Market Marketing Director to start The Marketing Edge. The Calgary Herald actually wrote an article called, “Even the boss may help you strike out on your own.” Unlike today’s downturn, it was uncommon to see someone abandon a job for the unpredictable world of entrepreneurship.

The world of entreneurship has been good to Karen. The Marketing Edge Ltd. was only the start of her interest in limited companies.  She partnered and pioneered Cattle Boyz Foods Ltd (1998-2009) and Dougco Renovations Ltd (2002+),building their brand and business client base.  In 2014, she struck another new company Hopeco Ltd. to build a high-end duplex with Dougco Renovations.  Today, Hopeco Ltd. owns and manages duplexes valued at $2 million.

Karen uses her diverse background to mentor start up and small-medium sized companies that want to know how to improve their marketing skills and programs.  She is a highly experienced marketing plan writer who can teach or write a plan.  Her background as a marketing director for various Alberta shopping centres helped to perfect her abilities.  In 1995, she won a Gold Award Masters of Marketing Award for the marketing plan she developed and implemented to launch Eau Claire Market in the mid-90's.

A passionate and entertaining speaker, Karen speaks on a variety of topics relative to entrepreneurs and people who have aspirations to be an entrepreneur.  Her mission is to help entrepreneurs learn how to become "marketing savvy business owners" that have more wins than losses.

She offers some pre-prepared topics that are all customizable with examples to a specific industry.  Topics can be delivered within a short speaking slot or expanded to be a seminar, educational talk.
