Karen: Warming my fingers up for #1230KISS – see you soon
Jackie: Fabulously sunny morning everyone, especially this morning’s special guest Karen Davis @befabulous
Karen: well please send that sun to me, it’s tipping it down here again
Karen: Morning everyone!
Jackie: hey, here we go.. Karen, plse tell us a bit about your business
Karen: Be Fabulous is an online magazine that aims to inspire, motivate & support/promote women in biz
Karen: Plus in my ‘day job’ I’m the owner of a marketing & design agency called chicken/egg – I keep busy!
Jackie: think that #1230TWC was one of your first sign-ups! What’s your greatest challenge
Jackie: if you want something done, ask a busy woman!!
Karen: ……. ask a busy woman!! – ain’t that the truth!
Jackie: please share with us the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given
Karen: Stop worrying about failing! Fear holds us back too much, if you’re passionate about something just go for it!
Jackie: Brilliant piece of advice, we can all hold onto that
Karen: just believe in yourself, that’s my motto!
Jackie: love both your business names – sums everything up so well
Karen: thanks, they get remembered!
Karen: biggest personal challenge is balancing work and home (I’ve a 4 yr old and we’re renovating a 17th C cottage!)
Jackie: guess the 4 yo is helpful there then plse send us pics at some time of the cottage
Karen: work challenge: keeping up the momentum with Be Fabulous and building relationships/winning biz for chicken/egg
Jackie: so a bit about u, how about sharing something with us that u’ve never shared before
Karen: Oh God, okay … ummm … I was a huge Bros fan (don’t judge me people!)
Jackie: Oh God, okay … ummm … I was a huge Bros fan (don’t judge me people!) #1230KISS / it’s OK we understand
Jackie: Business for most is about the ups & downs, do u have a business mistake u could share with us?
Karen: I’ve made 100’s over the years, who hasn’t! But the biggest: getting too emotionally involved with a client
Karen: There has to be boundaries. It hit me very hard when the relationship went sour. But you live and learn!
Jackie: yep – a tuffy, but as u say we live & learn
Jackie: thank u for sharing that with us so publicly, on a lighter note r u a stilettos or trainer gal?
Karen: Like most working mums I fall into both camps, I’ve two wardrobes for my different ‘roles’
Jackie: which quality would u prefer to work with – entrepreneur or maverick
Karen: A mix of the two if possible – they’ve both got qualities that are important, I think I fall into both camps.
Jackie: yes, that sounds a great mix – last question coming up Karen, thank u so much 4 your time, hope you’ve enjoyed and on your business epitaph – what would that say?
Karen: It’s been great, thanks for inviting me on
Jackie: It’s been great, thanks for inviting me on #1230KISS / it’s been entirely our pleasure
Karen: LOL! ‘She worked bloody hard
Jackie: I thank that’s the most FABULOUS note to end on! Thnx Karen, thnx everyone
Jackie: Hope you all enjoyed the interview this morning on #1230KISS

Jackie: thnx everyone – see u same time 10.30 am next Friday , don’t forget, get in touch if u’d like to be Twitterviewed
Jackie: Lol! thnx again Karen, now have a “finger rest”
