High Touch Service in No-Touch Times with Elaine Lou Cartas
I’m so excited to introduce you to Karen Sergeant, a Fractional COO who helps CEOs stop being the bottleneck in their business by helping them reimagine their internal operations and create customized best-practices for how to manage their projects, teams, and decisions.

Karen is actually the one responsible for my affiliate partnerships journey, because she hired me to be the affiliate manager for Selena Soo’s affiliate launch for Impacting Millions, so I have her to thank for that.
