Brief Portfolio

Bestselling author Lauren Golden,

founder of The Free Mama Movement:

“I knew that if I was going to get my mission out there, get this book out there, that I needed to collaborate with a professional. So I decided to work with Karin, and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made in my business to date.

… What Karin did is actually extracted stuff that I don’t know I would have come up with on my own. I don’t know if I would have understood the significance for either the flow of the book or to build connection with my reader. And so in those conversations with Karin, she asked me really great questions and was very thoughtful with how she listened and how she followed up to make sure she was really getting to the soul of what I wanted to share in this book.”
