When public speaking and life coach Linda Ugelow invited me on her TV show in April 2017, I was thrilled! Women Inspired is where Linda speaks with entrepreneurs, teachers, and people with a compelling journey to share.

During the show, Linda invites me to give something away to viewers – and I provide the link to download my book, Positive Discipline Ninja Tactics, for free… If you’re feeling stuck in your parenting, definitely watch for that!
Thank you, Linda, for inviting me onto the show. You’re doing something really special at Women Inspired, and I can’t wait to watch more!


Rob Broadhead over at blessing not stressing is creating a wonderful new podcast for parents, and in April 2017 he invited me on, to talk about my parenting journey and what it means for you, if you’re the parent of young children.
My conversation is split over several Fridays; listen to the first installment here.
Thanks so much, Rob, for having me on the show!

September 12, 2016: The Broad Experience, one of my very favorite podcasts, is all about “women and the workplace.” Host Ashley Milne-Tyte recently did a fascinating show on feminism and two of its current heroes, Sheryl Sandberg and Anne-Marie Slaughter. I’m a huge Anne-Marie Slaughter fan, and Ashley featured several of my pro-Anne-Marie ideas in this episode, “Sandberg versus Slaughter.” Click here to listen!


“My wife and I have really young kids, and as a result were so happy to check out Positive Discipline Ninja Tactics. Karen’s’s mix of personal stories and great hacks – things to do in the toughest moments with little kids – make this book so useful and entertaining. Highly recommended!” – Geoff Woods, entrepreneur and host of The Mentee Podcast
