Karen was extremely helpful in troubleshooting my personal hangups and barriers to effectiveness. She is a fast study, a great listener, creative, and articulate. Her Inner Fortune system draws attention to all major aspects of life and work and provides tools for increasing personal effectiveness, especially in sales.

Having the Inner Fortune journaling process before me has made me more attentive and reflective to the process and progress of my daily life and activities in various categories. For example, my dreaming–while hard to remember–has become more active and perhaps as a result of being more conscious of it. The various aspects outlined in the journal are a gradual process and Karen’s fine material will be an ongoing resource for me to become more organized and attentive to personal and organizational development. While I struggle with interpreting different aspects of life in the specific categories, it is opening up creative ideas for achieving my goals.

I am only partway in and I have already cried, laughed out loud, and felt inspired. I am so grateful to have this experience and the beauty and rawness of life shared so openly. This is inspiration to journal more, myself. And a reminder that being honest and focused on your inspiration will make you a very beautiful person, inside and out!
