"I was excited to stop DIYing thing on my own, it wasn't getting me the results I wanted. Karen worked closely with me to understand my needs. Finally, I was able to launch a site that I love with ease. I’ll definitely be working with her AGAIN."

Before working with Karen I felt nervous about how I was going to pull off a beautiful and unique design with limited WordPress experience. I had some hesitation mostly I was intimidated by the cost. I felt like I COULD do it myself, but realistically knew I didn’t have time and ultimately it made sense to invest in some expert help. My business has already seen a positive impact. I have already made sales!
