Karen Presenting at SFU

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

“It was my pleasure to share with a full-house set of budding young entrepreneurs my trials, tribulations, and experiences on becoming an entrepreneur. I was part of a panel that included 3 other business owners and one speaker from SFU SIFE. It was so much fun listening to other entrepreneurs share their stories and hearing about how far they’ve come in their ventures.  Aside from that, the panel provided many great tips on things to consider when starting a business. The knowledge share in the seminar was so inspiring and motivational.  This interactive session could have been easily valued at a few hundred dollars given the expertise in the room but I am so glad that eager students were able to attend free of charge. Thanks to everyone who attended and stay tuned for other upcoming career services entrepreneurial seminars!”

A thank you note from one of the students:

Dear Karen,
I attended the speaker panel at SFU yesterday. I wanted to sincerely thank you for taking time off to share your experience with us. I, myself have graduated from SFU and have a concentration in Marketing and Finance, so I was very inspired by your experience especially when you said that you wanted to do what most people won’t do now in order to do what most people can’t in the future.. This quote will stay with me always…
