Kari Schwear has spent most of her professional life helping people find the story they want to tell about the choices they make in their lives. For the past two decades, she has helped companies grow by finding new ways to serve clients. Kari believes the best way for a company to expand is to help its clients expand. She founded GrayTonic and Question the Drink (QTD) in 2018 for professionals like herself that are using alcohol as a coping mechanism for stress. Kari is a Discovery Coach, speaker, and a co-author of the book, The Successful Mind, Tools for Living a Purposeful, Productive, and Happy Life.
Kari discusses the transition she went through from the corporate life at Porche to being self employed, the obstacles she faced, the steps she took to build a team, take on a business partner and how her husband supported her through it all.
She provides some encouragement for new entrepreneurs on what they can expect when they start a business and to not give up on the dream, but stay focused and know that if they keep working at the business, things will eventually get better.
