Giving back

Hi, I’m Karen.  Paul and I welcome you to the B&B.  Let me tell you a little bit more about me.  I am an endeavor coach.  I work with people, companies and non profits who want to make a positive difference in the world, but who don’t use their resources in the most effective way.

I work with a strengths based method, so my expertise is moving people towards success and making sure that it will make them happy when they get there.  Planning and time management are a part of that.

If you are here for an extended period of time I would like to  invite to work with me during your stay.  My sessions are per hour, done in the intimacy of my home within the B&B.  My fee is normally 150 euro per hour but if you are somebody who wants to make a positive difference in the world, I help for free.

Feel free to enquire via Paul or myself, by email or once you are here.

Looking  forward to meeting you.

The Ligaya Foundation
We set up this foundation to provide ‘effective’ financial support for continued studies for girls in the Philippines.  The girls we support are extremely motivated and their families are checked to make sure they really cannot afford to pay for further education.  We also try to ensure that the choice of study suits them and will enable them to get a good job, so that they can help support their own families.
At the moment we have 18 scholars.

The Muses Foundation
Our support and energy goes to this foundation in Amsterdam, which trains volunteers who go abroad to work at projects, to get the best possible experience both for themselves and for the projects. They train around 1600 volunteers each year.
When the volunteer returns to Holland they are offered the Greater Good training which helps them harness that great feeling of ‘making a difference’ and translate it to a work/life plan to help them achieve their own full potential.  We LOVE this!
We are one of the main financial sponsers and Karen has been a member of the Board since 2014.

Karen McCusker – Business Mentor
As a successful entrepreneur and Business Coach, I am at the stage that I want to give back by supporting and/or coaching people and non-profit organisations, who themselves want to make a positive difference in the world.

The areas I can help with are:  Strategic Planning, Organisation, Time Management. I have a special talent for Sales and Marketing.  Basically I can see quite quickly what’s stopping you reaching the success you want to have and work with you on a plan to achieve that success.
