I’m Karen Revell, a Business and Money Alignment Coach.
What does that mean?
I help you build a business from the inside-out. One in alignment with your natural gifts, your values and your lifestyle goals.
And I help you transform your relationship with money as this is a key area that holds so many good-hearted, talented people back from making a real difference in the world.
I spent over 20 years in a successful corporate career as an accountant, project manager and senior leader in the financial services industry. I was driven to achieve financial independence.
At 18 years old I had a boyfriend who wanted me to get married and settle down. I hadn’t even left school! He gave me a guilt trip.
Once out of that relationship and starting work as a reconciliation clerk I loved the independence I had from earning money. And I was lucky. I had a boss who recognised my talent and encouraged me to study to become a professional accountant. That started me on my career.
I was driven, not by ambition, but by the thought of how different my life could have been. How dependent I would have been on someone else. I knew I never wanted to be in that situation ever!
So I worked hard – very hard to climb that corporate ladder. For the most part I enjoyed what I did, but in the end I found myself in a situation of compromising my values, burning out and questioning if this was worth it.
So I quit to do something more rewarding and fulfilling, and that would allow me greater freedom and balance in my life.
I trained as a Personal Performance Coach and a Career Change Coach to help others find more rewarding work. However, over the years I found other small business owners coming to me for business advice. I was also always being told to teach about money.
I wasn’t really interested in doing this until I started studying the psychology and beliefs around money that many people have.
Now I bring all of my knowledge and experience together to help other small business owners – especially those in the transformation space, such as healers, trainers, coaches and consultants, to uncover their true wealth -their talent and genius; transform their relationship with money and follow strengths-based strategies in their business so they can achieve their goals with more ease and flow.
