Feel like you are struggling with balancing your Life and Work? I am passionate about helping people find their own unique balance and Put Your LIFE First!
There are so many different aspects to feeling truly "balanced". Life-Work Balance is not an "either / or" scenario. For most of us, life and work meld into each space - it's not black-and-white - and that's Ok!
Remember, Life - Work Balance isn't only about time-management and prioritization, it's about so much more. It's possible, it's doable, and it's important. Put Your LIFE First!
Kari helped me learn that I can't have everything at the same time. I need to set boundaries that work for me. Being self employed I tended to work well into the evening because there was always something weighing on my mind that needed to get done. Kari helped me remember that time for myself and family would ultimately be better for my business and me. I have managed to follow her advice and I now have strategies that help me put my work away at a reasonable hour and get more done during the "normal" work hours. My business has NOT suffered at all but my personal life has improved so much. Thanks for the much happier life I have with less stress!
Response from The Life-Work Coach:
Thanks, Paula! I'm so glad to hear you got so much from that presentation. But, most of all, I'm thrilled that you've seen the value of finding your very own unique Life-Work Balance!
I am on the board of a women’s group that meets monthly. Each April we have an invitational where we invite an outside speaker (preferably a woman) to come to our group and talk with them about issues we as woman are facing.
A referral suggested Kari Skloot. I have known Kari for some time and have heard her speak at other events, but mostly about the business she was representing. Kari came to our group in April and provided us with some helpful insight on what she called Life Work Balance. She said Life being operative because many woman tend to put Work before Life when striving for that balance. She not only spoke to us but she gave our group an opportunity to interact with her and to participate in her talk. It was truly inspirational to hear someone like Kari, who is a mom and a working mom, share with us that she too faces the same struggles the ladies in our group face.
We were both inspired and enlightened and walked away with a determination to bring balance to our lives. Thank you to Kari for inspiring us to strive for that Life Work Balance. I would recommend Kari to speak to again and would definitely consider her for future events!
Response from The Life-Work Coach:
Thank you so much, Nancy! You made this so much fun for me - wonderful discussion, group participation and energy during the entire workshop. Great group of strong women business owners!

What to Expect
Kari can create custom keynotes, seminars, workshops, break-outs or retreats for your meeting, group or organization. Ideally, the creation of the program will be a collaborative process between the client and Kari.
Most comfortable in a live, interactive environment, Kari encourages participation and enthusiasm. You won't get a staid or stoic lecture, but rather a conversation with real-life stories and applications.
For smaller groups, working closely by using worksheets and flipcharts will help bring home the message of creating your own unique Life-Work Balance.
For larger groups and audiences, Kari can create an engaging powerpoint presentation that incorporates the goals of the organization and speaks to your culture and brand.
For most venues, Kari will require a podium and lavelier microphone. For smaller rooms, her voice is strong and may not need to be mic'ed. Depending on the specific needs of the client and the customized presentation, you may need to supply a screen and projector for a powerpoint, or a flipchart with markers.
If you are looking for a Life Coach, please contact Kari to learn more about her Life-Work Coaching offerings.
Kari is available for gigs during regular business hours, evenings and weekends.
There may be additional fees for travel exceeding 50 miles round trip, so please discuss this with Kari early in the process.
After more than 25 years working with organizations of all shapes and sizes, for-profit and non-profit, Kari decided to follow her passion and founded Skloot Consulting. As a professional speaker, coach, consultant and author, Kari opened Life-Work Coach division to help people flip their thinking about balance - Put Your LIFE First!
Kari's style is engaging, collaborative, inquisitive and, most of all, passionate! She brings a genuine and calming energy that encourages, supports, and enhances the efforts of those around her.
She is the creator of the Life-Work Wheel (c); S.P.I.N. Elevator Pitch; S.P.I.N. Networking. She is also co-author of the forth-coming book, "Nine Lives: Stories of women who found their own paths to success" to be released Fall 2015.
Kari and her fabulously-balanced husband of 26 years, Rich, live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago with their 14-year-old athletic son, sweet rescue-dog, and the crazy cat who lets them all live in the house.
