Karna is like a ray of sunshine and clarity. She is an amazing listener with incredible intuition who can almost read your mind in order to understand your business. Her ability to reflect back to you what you are wanting to achieve is a true gift. I am impressed with her ability to grasp complex issues and simplify them. Her clear and very grounded approach provides a wonderful container from which to grow and expand your business. Karna has a way of making you feel confident and capable to achieve your dreams. I would highly recommend Karna as an empowerment coach and business consultant.
