Inspire Workshop

I am so happy you clicked.


It’s the first step in your journey.

I know.

I get it.

I understand.

Six years ago, if someone would have told me where this blog would take me and how it would grow and the things I would see and the dreams that would come true I would have held up my hand, taken a drink of sweet tea…

…and buckled my seatbelt.

I’ve written more than 1500 blog posts.  I’ve published four books (with two more on the way).  I’ve worked with hundreds of brands.  I’ve launched two fabric lines.  I just launched a product line that is currently available internationally and in 33 states across the US. I’ve been featured in over 25 magazines and have spoken all over the country to different conference and groups. And? I have so many other fun projects in the works.

All while sitting here in my house wearing a messy bun, yoga pants and red lipstick.

Because here’s the thing.


When you write a blog or develop a platform or start your own business.

The sky is literally the limit.

Along the way I started coaching.

I’ve done almost 800 blog and corporate consult sessions since I started this blog.

People would ask me questions or e-mail me for help with their blog and their business and I wanted to help.

I wanted to share what I had learned.

I wanted to inspire and encourage and uplift and help others to understand that THEY COULD DO IT.

Whatever their dream.

Whatever their heart.

Whatever their vision.


Here are some of the comments from the 2018 Inspire Workshop Attendees:

“THANK YOU.  THANK YOU for an AMAZING day yesterday!!!  I’m feeling incredibly blessed!  So excited for this new adventure:  Thank you for inspiring and leading me.”

“The Inspire Workshop really energized my mind and heart for my business!  Spending the day with Karianne is exciting, fun and just incredible!!  I learned specific ways to boost my business intentionally, encouragement for my heart & ideas for my industry to apply now!   If you are on the fence about attending, just do it!!”

“We were a diverse group of 11 women, from ages perhaps 28-60 (hard to tell!  they were all beautiful!) from as far away as New Hampshire, some with established blogs and some aspiring noobs like me.   We were young moms, older moms, business owners, teachers, photographers, graphic artists and entertainment mavens.  To a person, this was a group of truly talented women!  We gathered to learn from Karianne, and she did not disappoint. 

What could have been better than Karianne’s ridiculously incredible generosity and teaching?  We were gathered in her beautiful home (even prettier than in her perfect blog photos!) to encourage each other, to learn, laugh, cry, share ideas and genuinely cheer each other on.  And that was the best part:  women coming together to lift each other up, sharing our hearts and our best ideas.  Girl Power!!”

And one day in the middle of all those consults, an idea came to me.

An idea that I wanted to make happen.

An idea that came straight from my heart.

A one-day event.

A small creative workshop for open to only 10 people.

It would be held here—at my house—around my dining room table where all my creative ideas started.

A place for people to bring their dreams.

A place to learn to start a profitable blog.

A place to bring your business idea and leave with concrete, solid steps to grow it into a profitable business.

A place to talk about your business that has just started and learn to grow it and promote it with free (or almost free) marketing ideas.

At Inspire Workshop we’ll cover:

1. How to define your mission statement and how to translate the benefits to your customers

2. Creatively finding new customers

3.  Marketing your product successfully with free (or almost free ideas)

(total workshop aside:  this is literally my favorite thing on the planet)

4.  Researching the competition

5.  Finding new revenue streams you might have overlooked

6.  Creating a successful social media campaign

7.  Networking and creating working partnerships
