Karen's business gamble pays off
Published on: 02 May 2017
A WOMAN who set up a business while on maternity leave is now making nearly £6,000 a week.
Karen Dunne-Squire, 39, quit her high-flying career in recruitment while her daughter was just three weeks old to set up sales training and consultancy firm Elation Experts.
Seven years on, Karen, who is based in Britton Gardens, Kingswood, has helped hundreds of firms increase their sales and grow their businesses - by up to three times their turnover. She has also become a sought-after inspirational speaker.
Karen, who lives in Frampton Cotterell, said: “If we help small businesses thrive, we can bring greater stability to the economy.”
Her business started as a personal assistant service and has included a successful telemarketing firm.
It developed into a sales training firm when Karen saw a demand for such a specialist business during a presentation to a networking group.
