To the point, expert interviews

For interviews that are always packed with take-always and relevant conversations for growing my business, I love listening to the Healthy, Wealthy, & Smart Show! It’s not often you find a great interviewer. Karen shines in steering her guests to give listeners what they want. Highly recommend.

Walk 2 Wealth ,

Amazing show!

I’m so glad I’ve found this show. There’s so much golden information that I’ve been able to takeaway and implement into my life!

Corey Hiben ,

Endless PT biz knowledge

I can recall one class in my graduate studies for occupational therapy that talked about how to start a business. The other 99% was how to be a cog in a while.
If you're a healthcare professional and have ambitions to start a business. Karen has got you covered. From starting a business to selling a business. She covers it all.
