After a 30 + year career in branding on an international stage as a speaker, published author, TV personality and business thought leader, founder, Karen Post was ready to reduce her international travel and build a company in her hometown of Tampa.

Today her passion has expanded into interior design and home staging. She helps home sellers, investors, home builders and home dwellers feel great about their property and get the results they desire.
