See How Working With Me Has Empowered My Clients

Karen Graves singlehandedly transformed my business.

When I first started working with her, my sales calls flopped (the few I attempted). I didn’t know what to say to get clients to say yes. I was stuck. I wasn’t making enough money to even call my business a business. Karen’s insights and coaching helped my sales calls go from uncomfortable and awkward to enjoyable, engaging and profitable! Now, I know what people want and need to hear. I know what I’m selling and I am confident making my offers. Within in 90 days, I have 10 new clients, I’m making the most money I have ever made in my business and love what I am doing. Working with Karen was the best decision I ever made. If you’re thinking about working with her, my advice is to stop thinking and do it!

I am SO happy and excited that I now know how I can help women, what I can offer them and the coaching packages they can select from. I am nervous and excited to get out there over these next few days and start sharing my message.

You are a freaking remarkable, stellar coach and I am so lucky that I “manifested” you into my life.

“I am thrilled with my new direction and so happy I trusted Karen in this process. Since working with Karen I have begun believing in myself, that my genius has value, is needed and WANTED!”

When I met Karen I was struggling to get clients for my document formatting business. I had a dream that someday I would become a consultant, somehow related to helping employees to like where they work, but I wasn’t sure how that would look. I was convinced I needed to stick with what I knew how to do in order to earn money. As it was, I had difficulty talking to people about my document formatting business.
I knew my service had value, but was having trouble conveying its value to prospects. However through working with Karen I found the confidence to pursue my dream “right now”, rather than wait until “someday”. Karen listened to my dream and instead of settling with helping me to get document formatting clients, she helped me uncover what my real genius is, and expertly guided me to starting my consulting business.
Since working with Karen I have begun believing in myself, that my genius has value, is needed and WANTED! I am comfortable talking to business owners about how I can help them in their business, and have landed my first consulting contract, which gives 4x more revenue than one document formatting project. I am thrilled with my new direction and so happy I trusted Karen in this process.

Karen is a first rate professional and gifted business coach. When I was ready to take my coaching practice to the next level, I was looking for a mentor with a record of success, deep subject matter expertise, and a hands on, supportive coaching style. Karen possesses all of these qualities and then some! Before working with Karen, my typical outcome, after conducting a workshop, was gratitude for the content I delivered, but few requests for further conversation. Last week, 40% of my workshop attendees requested follow up consults. 40%!
As a result of working with Karen, I am not only making more money in my business than I have ever made, I am enjoying my business more than I ever have. I love my work again! I consider Karen a true partner and trusted advisor and cannot recommend her highly enough to fellow solopreneurs looking to grow their businesses in a substantive way.

“I feel much stronger and more in control than I’ve ever felt before”

When I started working with Karen I was sort of all over the place. I was trying to focus on too many things and doing a lot of passive marketing. Marketing was my comfort zone so I allowed myself to live there.I really needed to push beyond my self-imposed boundary in order to grow my business. I really struggled with “owning” my business. I was very comfortable doing the work but when it came time to taking charge, whether that was reining in project creep, or dealing with non-paying clients or saying no when the fit wasn’t right, I always struggled. Saying “no” was difficult for me; I felt like I was letting someone down.I learned to not make everything so personal. By taking that important step back, I’m in a much better position to run my business. I find that the right decision is much clearer and easier to implement.

Since working with Karen I feel much stronger and more in control than I’ve ever felt before which is very freeing. I’ve closed deals because I pursued the opportunity rather than accepting a non-committal response.

“In the past month I have landed a huge account, expanded business opportunities, improved my health, my relationships and made $13000 in sales to boot!”

Before working with Karen my sales were terrible. I was waiting for phone calls to come in so I could make sales. My self esteem was low and I was ready to quit. I was entertaining the idea of getting a full time corporate job.I felt like there were just too many obstacles and I wasn’t reaping any rewards.

In just the first month working with Karen EVERYTHING has changed. I went from questioning myself to being self assured, confident, and recognized as a top sales person and “go to” person in my company.

I am no longer waiting for permission to conduct business.

Karen has shown me that I can sell naturally by just being myself. I am having comfortable conversations where I am offering help as an expert. I listen and I offer solutions which leads to more sales that come easily to me.

In the past month I have landed a huge account, expanded business opportunities, improved my health, my relationships and made $13000 in sales to boot!

I found by making a 100% commitment to myself, my business growth and mastering sales I was able to change my mind about my own value and now I absolutely know I am on the road to success.

“In the first month and I’ve almost reached my three-month income goal!”

Karen has already taught me so much about sales in the short time we’ve worked together. I had no idea how to market myself or how to be a natural saleswoman. I always thought to be a good salesperson, you had to be pushy and aggressive, but that’s not my style. Karen is teaching me to bring out my own sales abilities, thus working with my natural personality. I can actually say I’m no longer scared of selling because I’m doing it in my own way.

Karen brought forth ideas on how and where to secure clients, pricing structure and how to change my website to reflect myself in the proper way. I’ve done so in the first month and I’ve almost reached my three-month income goal! My intuition said to work with Karen and I’m so glad I did.

When I started working with Karen I was on the edge of quitting. I had been burned badly by a “guru” expert program that took my money and left me with more fluff than substance. I had nothing left – no enough money, not enough focus, and really not even enough hope for me (and that is saying a lot once you get to know me).

I was not only ready to pack it all in . . . I was in the process of sending out resumes to traditional job opportunities.

Then one day I stumbled upon Blab. Karen’s warmth, attitude, and persistence caught my attention. Her willingness to invest in me with no expectations of a return gave me just enough fuel for one more go.

Karen sparked a new ability to open up and trust. She challenged me without crushing me and she pushed me without intruding in my journey. It was her insightful shares that helped me push aside my big buts, crawl over my excuses, and begin to not only see what she saw in me but to understand how to bring it to fruition.

Karen gave me the vision to see what was right in front of me.

The aha arrived and I believed.

I not only knew what it was I was trying to do or where it was I was trying to go, I believed in reality of what I knew. That belief allowed me to start doing in the areas I had only been dreaming.

Karen Graves can help IF you are looking for the support and encouragement to get going and to get doing. She will help you work through it, to break through it, to get through it.

When we met Karen we realized that we wanted to increase our sales and determine how to integrate the two arms of our business which are working with organizations and individuals. We were doing a lot of work and not necessarily seeing the amount of work pay off.We immediately noticed Karen’s high level of expertise in sales and her ability to understand what makes a woman-owned business a success. She has given us numerous sales techniques that we have incorporated into our business, and we have a renewed confidence when meeting with potential clients.When we began working with Karen we had too wide of a variety of potential client niches that we were exploring. “We have picked a horse to ride!” Through Karen’s expertise and guidance, we were able to narrow our focus and establish two key target markets, career coaching for women and career development services for non-profit organizations.

Since establishing our niche markets, we secured a contract with a local library and a partnership with a relocation firm that provides career coaching to spouses. Also, our individual client base has increased significantly.

We are excited about building a marketing strategy to continue to increase business in our target markets. Through our coaching sessions and workshops with Karen, we have discovered our true passion for helping people successfully manage their careers and be happy in their jobs.

Even though I have been running a successful Relationship Coaching practice for the past 15 years, I was ready to grow bigger. To do so I recognized it was time to refresh, reinvent, and expand my business in order to serve more people and make more impact in the world.I wanted to be able speak to prospective clients in ways that show my heart, authenticity, and the possibilities for their relationships. I didn’t want to sound insincere or mechanical. I didn’t want a formula approach to sales.Having been in several group coaching programs, I knew I needed a more personalized touch. I was ready to be handheld into greater sales mastery.When I first met Karen and heard her philosophy about sales, I knew I’d found the mastery I needed. I would get where I wanted to go in expressing my personality and showing my passion for what I want my clients to have in their lives in my own way.

In just a few short months, Karen quickly honed in on how I could speak in a more value-added approach. She gave me invaluable feedback on how to better handle concerns and fears that potential clients might express. As a result, I am much more relaxed when I have sales conversations. I am having more fun. I’m getting feedback that people are coming away from our conversations feeling clearer and with a renewed sense of possibility they weren’t seeing before.

Working with Karen has resulted in me booking 6 new clients in 6 weeks! And, I know this is only the beginning.

I’ve worked with coaches in the past who haven’t seemed to care about me or what I’m doing. Karen really cares. She takes the time to truly understand what my business and personal missions are and gives me just what I need.
