Thanks so much for your inspiration and wisdom!"

What other creatives are saying about working with me

"Karen Friedland is an inspiring and energizing creativity coach. She combines talent, energy, great personal warmth and marketing savvy. She has the ideal set of skills and experience for coaching creative people in their enterprises."
-- Brenda Becker, blogger/writer, http://ayearinthepark.typepad.com

"Concise, well-planned and timely. Nice agenda! Clear view of the business plan for creating your goals and dreams. Teacher knows her stuff! Great!Karen kept the group rolling & was open to 1-1 coaching when she saw frustration brewing. When I was struggling, she didn’t push me. Karen took a giant step back, observed and I felt like she was opening her arms to me. It was very tender, wonderful and impactful. A tender moment when I needed it. Bravo!"
--Lisa Zuecher, Writer

"Karen's workshop was a needed break to focus and re-focus my business priorities, while forcing me to get to the nitty gritty of how to get to my goals. It allowed me to tease out visions in a format more in line with how I choose to sketch out ideas--I mean this literally. For me, the medium was posterboard and marker(!) To hell with the spreadsheet. Karen's workshop covers a great deal of business to-dos in a short amount of time and lets you leave armed with notes, ideas, and momentum to carry them forward. My only complaint is that it wasn't a day or two longer..'
--Ronna Welsh, purplekalekitchenworks.com

“I would say that this isn’t a walk in the park. It isn’t an afternoon craft class. What it is, is the best kick in the pants you know you need. It’s a class in stretching your mind, your vision, your dedication and your time management and how that relates to your business. You will be stretched further than you ever thought you could be. You will come to conclusions about your business that you never expected but were pleasantly surprised by. Above all, you will be excited about your business. You will be motivated to make it happen. Instead of feeling like someone with little to offer in the way of money or business sense you’ll feel like someone who has enough business sense to make your dream happen or at the very least know how to acquire the knowledge to make it happen. Instead of feeling like someone who has no business trying to make it in a corporate world you feel like someone who has a great idea that will appeal to people you can hardly wait to meet. It will change your perspective for so many things in the best way possible.“
--Micheline Courtemanche, Betty and Bing Letterpress, www.bettyandbing.com
