“I think extremely highly of Karen Taylor, and therefore it is my great pleasure to write a endorsement on her behalf.
I have known Karen for the past year. We met through a recommendation of Debbie Pearson, with The City of Peoria. She sought out Steve Henry & the book he wrote & I assisted in getting it to her. Our communication grew through Facebook as a regular commenter to The Playbook for Small Businesses page & The Steve Henry Show. This would soon become the radio show that Karen would be a guest of on April 16, 2011. After seeing what she & her company represented this was a no brainer for Steve to have her as his guest. So much so that Steve turned that appearance into a video commercial for her to keep, for FREE.
Knowing that the message is true as to how to Start, Grow and Succeed in your small business, as written & spoken by Steve Henry, Karen has been one of his biggest Fans. As the Director of Communications for Steve I come across many businesses and interact with many people in this sector. There is a small handful of people that I can make time for to see their presentations or shows. Although I can't make every show of hers, I have been there in the past & I know I will be there in the future.
Karen Taylor of Destiny Marketing, a lady you will be proud to know that can only build you up.

"Karen is the antidote to what's wrong with business in America. Even on the job she's a complete human being with skills and intuition and commitment. She's no "suit". If she says she'll work for you and you're frank and collegial, you'll smile together all the way to the bank. Just don't try to B.S. her. She's got radar that should be outlawed and a gift for turning intentions into action. Not for nothing she was a minister after she was a successful account exec at CBS. Although she started out as an assistant and then as my Research Analyst at CBS in Philadelphia, she always looked beyond sliced-and-diced cold data to find meaning based on whole people. It's not the way they trained CBS research brains at the time. But Karen cut through the psychobabble of psycho graphics and "cloning" (I kid you not) wonderfully. Turns out she was way ahead of the curve. Years later, I was lucky enough to attract her to my fledgling Boston ad agency, Smash (www.smash.com) where she masterminded our marketing, blended "best practices" with best people skills, cultivated the juiciest TV networks and the biggest syndicators in LA and NYC and grew us to 75 people on Newbury Street. Remember, this was mostly early-Internet and early email. Boston was not the hub, not Madison Avenue, yet we handled tv network launches across the US and around the world. Karen made it make sense to everyone. If you're a powerful person with a lot at stake, a big business headache and an obstacle that looks like a killer, here's my advice. Hire Karen, pay her well, answer her every question, do what she asks immediately without making her explain herself, and get the heck out of her way. She smiles a lot. So does Tiger Woods. They both "got game."
— Mark Tomizawa, SMASH Advertising, Boston, Massachusetts

If you are serious about your business and honestly desire growth, then you need to give Karen a call, she will make it happen."

"Karen, truly help me see the BIG picture on the importance of focusing on the triangle of business relationships: The customers, your employees & the owners.
She not only listened to my concerns but also noticed issues that I had not placed much emphasis on, and enhanced those polices which had positive results but could be strengthen.
She became the wind beneath my wings!"
— Leonardo A. Gem, Across Arizona Tours, Phoenix, Arizona
