Over the last 6 years, Karen has privately coached small business owners who are 5-10 or more years in business by supporting them in growing or scaling their businesses. With the presenting credentials of Certified Creativity Coach, Karen lectures on four areas: “creativity as a concept”, “meaning work”, “art as a calling”, and “creating after 40” for academic environments and conferences with this niche group in leadership, innovation, career transition, and creativity.

Karen Baker brings a unique blend of expertise that has put me on the path to building a more successful, profitable business.
Her 24 years of entrepreneurship and her deep theoretical understanding of design thinking, makes her the perfect business advisor. Karen’s ability to toggle between strategy and creativity, analysis and execution, helped me create a plan going forward that shifts me from freelancer to true entrepreneur. She has an ability to ask the right questions that drive towards desired actions (and more importantly outcomes). She left me with a framework for not only thinking about the current state of my business but also how to regularly diagnose it going forward.
As a result of Karen’s consultation, I am designing my own leadership model. After 15 years of designing and teaching for others, I am designing and teaching my own materials! Tiffany Quivers
