This is My Story...
When I was 7, I began writing stories. I wrote about the puppy I kidnapped from the neighbor when I was 5 , how the leaves on the willows came to life after I got glasses, and how to catch and gut a fish like my dad taught me.
My favorite part wasn’t the writing, it was standing in front of anyone who’d listen and reading my stories out loud.
One day in second grade we were assigned to write an essay about something we did on the weekend.
That was the weekend I got to meet my cousin Ray Bourque, famous defense player on The Boston Bruins and the whole family went to the pre game hockey practice.
After practice he came out of the locker room and as I looked up at him.he said You must be Karen,” He crouched down, shook my hand, and then kissed my cheek.
I raced home and wrote down everything I remembered from that moment and I read it to the class on Monday and everybody started giggling.
And then at lunch a song emerged ... "Karen and Raymond sitting in a tree"
After that I kept all my stories for my diary
At 15 I dropped out of school got a job, and moved out of the house
It wasn’t until I was a mom at 25 that I thought about how much I loved writing and sharing in front of people so i went back to school.
In English we wrote lots of stories and it felt so good My teacher commented on one of my assignments and said “ you possess the skills, talent, attitude, and personality to be a successful writer. I will always scan the shelves for your publications”. I beamed
Then a shift in government cut my financial support -I had to get a second job - life got bananas trying to juggle it all - single parenting at the time- so I quit school again and then the only thing I was writing was my grocery list, and copy for pa announcements at work.
7 years later I’m walking on a beach vacationing with my husband Barry my son Jake, my stepdaughter Cassidy and our brand new rescue dog named Whiskey
In the corner of my eye I see a police officer approaching us - Are you , Karen Abel?
Is your mother Maria? Yes….“ I’m so sorry.. Your Father Gordon passed this morning. I reached into my pocket for a smoke before I remembered I’d quit a year before…
My Dad’s dream was to see the success of his children… but I’m not done making you proud Dad
For the first time in my life I felt like I had no choice but to get my butt in gear, with a new awareness that time is the gift I can no longer take for granted.
Today, I’m not just writing daily and in the midst of finishing a book, but I’m also supporting and guiding Entrepreneurs moving their ideas into action and helping them feel their dreams coming true
Hi! I’m Karen Wilson
A little more about me...
My intrinsic intention has always been to help people step into their desired zone of fulfillment.
When I started on my entrepreneur path, getting my big vision, my idea to come alive I didn’t really know much about tech, I didn’t even have a cell phone that I used for anything other than phone calls.
At times it felt like I was throwing spaghetti at the wall like something had to stick at sometime…. The problem was that most everything was sticking and that made decisions even more difficult on what I should COMPLETE first.
When I learned the skill of looking inward BEFORE looking outward everything began to change. And then I hired a Mentor to help me stay focused on my vision
Before that I felt programmed to figure out how I was going to get my "what" in place- you know the tech side instead of actually DOING IT!
I wondered why I struggled so hard, when every single fibre of my being my entire life has been helping OTHERS make choices, stay in their lane, and walk the pathway to their desired outcome.
And then I experienced the quiet. With my Mentor's help I committed to become my training The more ideas I let rest, the more my desire zone came to life. Then the more lively my clarity and confidence became.
I know overwhelm, idea overload , information overload and uncertainty launching ideas in motion can bring.
Everything I do for you and with you is designed to free up more time and energy for you to go out and do the things that no one but you can do.
“The way we feel about ourselves inside and out is a gateway to so many possibilities”
From time to time I may recommend programs, products that also have affiliate links. I only promote things I know, have used, and would continue to use with or without affiliate-ship.
My background is in customer service and sales with over 25 years of experience in several different industries. When I started a small online business in 2013, I dove in head first to learning online marketing strategies and began blending the two together.
Since 2016, I have been working primarily in developing educational materials such as online courses, websites, landing pages, marketing funnels, etc.
In all of my previous positions, I’m consistently recognized for my positive energy, my attention to detail, dependability and mapping out what’s to come in the form of checklists and processes.
I’m passionate about helping dreams come alive and creating systems and through lines of implementation strategies with my clients.
I also love the outdoors and my Great Pyrenees, Tula and I agree that a daily hike in the trails keeps us energetic and happy.
If you have an online business looking to scale through automations, course creations, website building and creating online foundations to support your big ideas, or you are building that first online platform, we could be a great fit!
I thrive knowing I’m helping contribute to something bigger than myself.
