About Me – Kari Lotzien

I am passionate about helping visionary entrepreneurs like you succeed and thrive long term in business and life. I believe businesses that value service and community have the ability to change our world for the better. 

Fun fact – I actually had “make the world a better place” in my own business vision statement. Several people told me that was a bit inflated but I stuck to it and so should you.

I am a visionary entrepreneur and most of my clients are too…

Visionary entrepreneurs start and build businesses that make the world a little better. You provide a service to your customers that makes their life a little better and a little easier. It’s so much more than just paying the bills and making a profit (but seriously making money is important too). 

Visionary entrepreneurs aren’t linked to certain industries – I have worked with these incredible people in therapy clinics, insurance brokerages, real estate firms, law practices and furniture stores.

I don’t feel my business has your fingerprint but you shadowed me to create what I needed. You knew how to come alongside and make it mine. I never felt you pushing your own ideas or vision onto me but you took my glasses and helped me to see my vision with your perspective.

Personalized Coaching and Leadership Training.

It breaks my heart to hear about passionate, visionary entrepreneurs who built businesses to truly serve others but then after a few years they reach the point where they plateau or even burn out. I hear things like “this just isn’t what I imagined” or “I just don’t have the energy anymore.”

The constant juggling act between emails, meetings, and personal commitments can leave you drained and longing for more time and energy. 

That’s where I come in.

I specialize in personalized coaching and leadership training tailored to help you regain control of your time and find your spark again.

It is so nice to have a space to talk things through. Kari is able to ask the right questions to help me get clear on what is next in my business. It is so helpful to have someone to talk things through with.

Carolin C., Owner, Insurance Agency

Your business is more than just a source of income.

It’s a vehicle to serve your community, create fulfilling careers for others, and grant you the freedom and flexibility you desire. I recognize the importance of your vision, and want to help you achieve it without sacrificing your well-being.

And here’s the thing, I’ve been in your shoes. I have experienced the relentless balancing act between overdrive and overwhelm. I, too, created a business I was proud of, but I made mistakes along the way. I lacked guidance during tough times, delayed seeking assistance due to financial concerns (or pride), and spent years trying to navigate my path alone.

I have accumulated over 21 years of experience in starting, growing, and successfully selling my own business. I understand  how crappy it is when it seems like it’s all on you  and how amazing it can be when you start to captain your ship and take control of your life again.

My Credentials:

  • Background in Occupational Therapy for over 25 years

  • Specialty in mental health and trauma aware practices – when you know better you do better 🙂

More Very Important Things to Know About Me:

  • I believe chocolate is better served cold.

  • The inspiration for my first business plan was based on the Field of Dreams movie – “if I build it, they will come.” Luckily, I expanded a bit on this with a bit of strategy but I still think that when an idea ignites in you and won’t leave you alone, it needs to come to life. I still hold this to be true for myself and I see it show up again and again for my clients.

  • I love reading biographies about people who live drastically different than me, I strive to constantly challenge my own assumptions.

  • Coffee is a love language.

  • The right mug matters – you can never choose a mug based on appearance alone. You have to hold it to see if it fits. And the mug has to match the occasion.

I took my Field of Dreams business plan, over two decades of experience in business, my formal training in communication, leadership skills and team development and have gone on to support hundreds of entrepreneurs to create incredible businesses and lives. 

I consider it a privilege to provide a safe space for entrepreneurs like you to rest, talk, and be truly heard. I know that everyone faces challenges. However, I firmly believe that it doesn’t have to be so difficult.
