Karen Barno’ consult was a great start to finding my purpose in life. She has a direct to the point manner that I truly appreciated. I appreciate Karen’s no fluff perspective. I would recommend her coaching to anyone on their journey to self discovery and is one of the great coaches among us. – Thank you Karen

Karen Barno excels at getting to your core issues (personally and professionally), forces you to look at them and then shoves you forward. She guides from her intuition and utilizes the elbow grease knowledge she has attained from running her own ultra successful businesses! She is smart, witty and a pushy broad! I love her!
