Giving Back to Make a Difference

volunteer-imageThe funny thing is that most people think giving back would be taking something away from themselves. Drained from life’s demands and in pursuit of our own needs, we really want to give back and make a difference, but who really has time?

Nancy Karas Headshot 3x4

How long have you been in business?  I started my business 22 years ago.

Why did you begin your business?  I had a huge career in Corporate America as the SVP of HR. I worked with so many people who were unhappy and completely dissatisfied with their careers and their lives. I wanted to provide people with the insider knowledge and the confidence they need to succeed and find the happiness they deserve.

What is your mission for your business?  My mission is to help people make their dreams a reality and to live truly successful and happy lives. I help my clients make huge transitions to obtain their career dreams, make their personal dreams come true and achieve their goals.

If there was one thing you wish you knew before you began your business, what would that be?  I wish I knew that fear is a liar. Everything I want is on the other side of fear. I also wish I had known that it was okay to hire people who are expert in things I am not, to do some of the work for me. You have to invest in yourself to succeed.

What is a guiding principle that you use in your business?  Take back your power and raise the bar. We tend to give our power away to others. We assume others have more than we do (older, younger, smarter, prettier, taller, luckier, wealthier) and so we must be inferior. I teach my clients to take back their power, know their worth, be comfortable with who they are and create the success and happiness they deserve.

What makes you a thriving woman in business?  I’m always willing to test and create new revenue streams for my business. I strive to remain current, relevant and highly adaptable. I reinvent my business yearly by adjusting my sails to navigate the changing needs of my clients and our society.

What do you love about being a thriving woman in business?  I absolutely love being my own boss and creating my own schedule.  I love that my work is a balance of barefoot in the backyard to all dressed up and speaking at corporate meetings and speaking engagements. I love realizing that the more I am my authentic self the more successful I am in my business. Most of all, I love that I can help so many people to live happy and successful lives and know that I will have helped to make the world a better place. Helping women to realize and find their own version of happiness and success is the best currency I could ever receive.

What is the next big thing or dream for you in your business?  I have been invited to be a guest Career expert for KTLA-TV. I love helping people on such a grand scale as so many more people can get the help they need at one time. My next big thing is to make this a long-term role on TV.
