Had my first $10,000 revenue month

I just graduated as an executive coach and I had an unstructured program that I wanted to get out there to more people. Through Karen's coaching I was able to gain clarity on how to structure my program and get it out there in a big way.

The reason I worked with Karen is that she's a group coach expert. And her style of coaching is to gain clarity and to move forward with ease and joy. She makes things simple which makes it easier to accomplish it and get it out there in a bigger way.

Karen is an intuitive coach so she is able to tap in and help me focus and prioritize. I was very green about launching my first coaching VIP coaching program. Karen guided and coached and helped through the unknowns to focus, prioritize, and organize this launch which was a success!

I gained confidence. As an entrepreneur, you get exposed to many ways of launching a business. Karen simplifies and breaks it down into pieces and makes it easy. Karen is trustworthy, amazing and is there for you in every way. She is in your corner which is why I continue to work with her.

In working with Karen, I had my first $10,000 coaching revenue month.

What I made in the first 3 months of coaching took care of my business expenses for the year

I had the opportunity to meet Karen in person during the ICF Italy Conference in Venice where she was invited as Keynote Speaker. I immediately felt her caring and supportive energy. She asked me a couple of tremendously powerful questions and gave me feedback as if she knew me for years and was able to see my true self.

I was already impressed at that stage, but it is only when I started working with her as my personal Business Coach that the “magic” happened! During the first month I closed my biggest contract ever for a Fortune 500 Company In the following 3 months that we worked together, I signed I signed a new VIP coaching agreement every week that took care of my expenses for the whole year. And the new business just keeps on flowing!

Karen says that “the clients you are seeking are also seeking you.” She helped me in identifying the limiting beliefs that I was holding and raising my awareness of what was possible for my business.

Karen’s authenticity and generosity in sharing her wisdom are unique! She is a true master in discovering the source of your inner energy and has the skills and expertise to best support you in utilizing it effectively. 

I tripled my annual income and have business in the pipeline for the next 6 months in addition to getting my MCC at the first attempt.

I feel free, empowered and confident as ever! My heartfelt gratitude, Karen!!

Started my executive coaching business from scratch

I'm so glad I hired Karen as a mentor coach! Her listening ear and guidance were super helpful as I started up my executive coaching business from scratch in 2016. I realized I was getting value out of the conversation within the first 20 minutes, which is how good coaching should be! Within four months, I achieved my monthly income goals -- which was two months ahead of my own expectation. Her coaching also helped me decide on pacing that worked for me. I really like her motto, "Success with ease and joy," because that has become my mantra!

Underestimated what is really required to go from employee to entrepreneur

I began coaching with Karen as part of the Executive Leadership Program while I was a manager at Ford. When I went on to start my own coaching business, I continued to work with Karen as my 1:1 coach.

Although I had been working very hard on mindset - I underestimated what is really required to transition from employee to entrepreneur. In preparing for my journey, I worked with several coaches over the last couple of years.

What makes Karen unique is she really listens and “gets me.” She knows exactly which thread to pull to unravel my own blocks that reveal the greatness I already had inside, and she always finds that missing puzzle piece that I need to take the next step.

My Virtual Assistant company was already successful when I reached out to Karen

It was growing so rapidly that, in less than two years, I had a team of eight people working for me. My problem was that I felt I was 'drowning' in the business and I was reluctant to take on more clients. Equally, I was concerned that my income would become stagnant and unpredictable.

I needed some help in examining, diagnosing, and finding remedies, so I could expand on my long-term vision for my business, without detriment to my personal well-being, and remain faithful to its ethics and integrity. Karen guided me in processes as to how to market and sell my services to my ideal clients and manage my business and myself with a flow and a mindset that has lessened the pressure and entirely removed my sense of overwhelm.

Thanks to Karen’s collaboration, wisdom, and special brand of 'magic,' I've expanded my capacity to be able to take on more clients, maintain the same high standards, and grow the business beyond what I ever imagined! Equally important, I'm also more present with my family and getting the best sleep I've had in months!

I received my first VIP client!

During our coaching time together, Karen had been encouraging me to ask for a higher coaching rate. Wouldn’t you know it, a potential client just happened to call me out of the clear blue sky? Sure enough, I requested (and received!) my premium VIP asking rate. I was elevated to a level I’d never been before.

Karen helped me expand my business model, as well as to create different ways to reach and connect with more clients. Karen took me from a more limited mindset and helped me expand my awareness and belief to be open to the higher amount of value that I offered.

And that’s when I received my first VIP client, and I continue to operate and receive from this elevated space. Karen is a wonderful “Coach’s Coach.”

I highly recommend working with Karen, as she brings a powerful combination of her spiritual essence and her strategic business guidance to expand and strengthen your coaching practice.

Significantly expanded my corporate and executive coaching business!

I knew I would receive value through my work with Karen, but I never could have dreamed it would translate to thousands of additional dollars in income. This is what Karen does - she takes what you already have and she helps you to expand that in ways you had not considered possible before.

With her seamless professionalism, vast experience in the business and coaching worlds and ability to focus on her clients like a laser beam, her coaching is nothing short of transformational.

If you are open to learning what you didn't know that you didn't know, and then taking action based on that new knowledge to create something truly exciting, you are ready to work with Karen Cappello.

Karen helps me take my business where is deserves to be!

Found my way forward from orthodontist to coach

I reached a point where I was in a transitional state in my professional life. My profession is that I am a dentist and orthodontist. I had taken a sabbatical from dentistry and I was a bit confused as to where I wanted to go.

I wanted to get coaching to get clarity about where I wanted to take my professional life. I also felt drained physically and emotionally because I was in a turmoil as to what to do. I had a coach in the past for a brief period. I wasn’t sure if it would help me but my husband Taymour is a professional coach. He had been trained by Karen and she came highly recommended by him. He was absolutely right and we were a very good match.

We had a great connection right from the start. I trusted Karen. She is a coach and also trusted advisor. During our coaching sessions I felt she was non-judgmental and she provided me with a safe environment to think and express myself and get clarity on my way forward.

Karen’s caption is “with easy and joy.” I really feel it is true and it resonates with me. She is very authentic and it comes across in her style of coaching.

During our coaching, I really understood and applied the importance and philosophy of self-care. By learning to apply self-care I realized that investing in my self-care gives massive returns to me with respect to my personal and professional relationships.

From our coaching, I received clarity in the path I want to follow, more confidence and a realization of where my own coaching niche would be in the coaching business with my husband.

Now that I am moving to coaching, I am looking to Karen as a mentor in developing my coaching practice

Coaching with Karen has been, and continues to be, a joyous and enlightening journey. I intend to continue with long-term coaching, as this is what is necessary to get the greatest reward.

Realized actions I can take that give me great benefit right away

Karen is exactly the right coach at exactly the right time for me!  During our VIP Day she created such a safe and supportive environment for me to really dig deep and explore some issues around building and marketing my coaching business. 

Karen  walked alongside me to realize actions I can take that will give great benefit right away, within my budget, in a prioritized way.  With so much to learn and so many bright, shiny objects, it’s important to have a partner like Karen to help facilitate self-awareness about what is realistic, what feeds my passion, and will help me get there – as she puts it – with ease and grace. 

I walked away excited to tackle my action items, and they’re already paying off.

Karen helped me remember how much I love the work I do

Karen has an amazing way of inspiring, while guiding me to gaining new perspective. She has been artful in helping me to see my self-imposed limitations and also see the possibilities in a much bigger way. She gave me a confidence boost. She helped me remember how much I love the work I do and the value I offer to my clients.

My first five-figure month and six-figure year

When I hired Karen, my core challenge wasn't strategy, but rather stress. I was a strategist at heart and my business was already starting to take off, but I often quickly shifted between confidence and total overwhelm, struggling to work in a vacuum and make important creative decisions. I knew I needed help or my business would be sustainable. Or, I'd somehow reach my goals, but I would be totally exhausted and stressed!

Hiring Karen was the best thing I could do to bring my business more ease, joy, and growth. Not just that, but she revived my relationship, as before working with Karen, not having the right support meant that I was talking to my partner about my business worries 24/7 (not good!). Peace in my relationship was restored after I signed up for coaching 🙂

During my coaching experience, Karen was there when I bravely challenged my comfort zone. She was there when I made self care a bigger priority than ever before. And, she was there when I had my first 5 figure month and 6 figure year. Today, as I look back on the amazing experiences I've had as a coach and business owner, from filling programs, speaking on big stages, and traveling the country, I know what a huge part Karen played in bringing these experiences to fruition– and I'm forever grateful.

The value I receive from working with Coach Karen has far exceeded my investment

Karen Cappello is a remarkable mentor coach on many levels. Coach Karen comes to her work from such a committed and connected place. She cares so deeply about my success and I really appreciate that “it’s all about me” when I’m coaching with her. Karen always meets me where I am “in the moment.” She asks intuitive questions that inspire me to delve further.

Karen provides additional ideas and resources and tools with such ease during our coaching conversations, that I have achieved my desired outcomes much more quickly!

Coach Karen’s energy and attitude and approach to life and work and the world is simply refreshing. Her energy is so uplifting and so supportive and loving, yet she is always there to challenge and help drive you to new levels. Karen coaches with purpose and has helped me move forward with her systems and tools and processes. In addition to Karen’s amazing support, these practical tools are exactly what I’ve needed to learn. In summary, Coach Karen breaks through limiting beliefs and blockages while helping me employ practical tools to make it all happen.

The value I receive from working with Coach Karen has far exceeded my investment.

Secured a contract that is worth 5 times what I have paid for my coaching!


I had made the decision to retire from my full time, and lucrative, career at the end of last year and to pursue coaching full time. Because of this I wanted to be sure that I was going to get started on the right foot and move ahead in the best way for success.

Karen has been the perfect coach to keep me on track, focused, held accountable and I cherish the relationship that we have developed. She is brilliant in that she is always bringing it back to what is important and - most of all - what matters to me as I build my business so that it is the most congruent with my personality and spirit.

Through her I have found the confidence to narrow my niche to leadership and business. I have made the decision to begin my business in Kuwait and the Middle East where opportunities have opened for me in the areas of coaching and training. Within my first two months I have written two large-scale training and coaching proposals (something I have never done in the past).

After just 5 months of coaching with Karen, I have secured a contract that is worth 5 times the investment what I paid for my coaching! And that is just one contract.

Karen has been crucial in recommending resources and always there to review my proposals, discuss pricing and strategy. Her input and guidance is invaluable and it is extremely comforting to know that I am working with a successful coach who has already done what I want to do.

One of the most valuable investments in myself ever

I took the Leverage for Leaders training because I wanted to add coaching skills to the “toolbox” of techniques that I use every day as a lawyer, arbitrator, mediator and advisor.

It wasn’t until after I had completed the course and began working with my first coaching clients that I fully realized how fundamentally different coaching is from any of these other disciplines. Yet at the same time, coaching techniques and practices have made every aspect of my professional and personal life easier and more joyful.

I work with dozens of individuals and organizations daily and whether they are my law firm clients, fellow non-profit board members or just personal friends, I use my coaching skills and coaching principles to develop and nurture positive relationships that help others reach their goals while I reach mine.

This training has been one of the most valuable investments in myself that I have ever made.

Changed every relationship in my life for the better

I took this course because I was told that it would change every relationship in my life for the better. It did that! A highlight of the event is that it changed my relationship with myself, and also the relationship with my sons.

I found that the course allowed everyone the ability to be honest and commit to their own growth and learning. It was very refreshing and expanding for my mind.

While I highly recommend this course for personal development, I have also been able to begin a private coaching business because of it. Even though I have been a successful businessman my whole life, I am now able to do a better job of listening and mentoring.

Thank you to Karen and all of the rest of the class members for an extraordinary experience!
