What is it that I do best?

As I prepare for another round of middle school and parent classes in the spring, return to working on editing my book for publication sometime in 2012, and look to expand my speaking work both in Austin and around the country, I am considering how to market myself.  Part of this process is understanding why people read my blog, why they hire me to teach them and their children about sex and sexuality, what it is about my sex education work that draws people to me.  I am hoping to get your input!  Let me know the top three things that you think I do best.  Maybe you’re a blog reader, maybe you’re a past client, or maybe you’re a friend of mine, regardless, I want to know what you think I do best.

You can e-mail me, leave a comment on my blog, or drop me a line on Facebook.  Thanks!  I look forward to hearing from you!

  1. I always felt that you were able to hear the meaning behind words, and repeat it back in a clear way.

  2. I suspect what you do best, Karen, is non-judgmentalism. I think that’s crucial in getting people to discuss and listen about such a sensitive subject.

  3. I totally agree, karen has a way of making such a tabboo subject into and inviting understandable discussion. While still being sensitive and considerate of all possible perspectives on any given topic. She has helped me better understand my own sexuality and that of others. Its been an amazing semester in her human sexuality course to say the least!

  4. 1. Provide an awesome educational internet site for parents grappling with the development of their teen’s sexuality;
    2. Provide individual consultation services for those parents to help them right away — immediate understand and non-judgment — to help them be better parents;
    3. Provide face-to-face classes for both parents and teens (different classes most of the time!)

    You’re wonderful, Karen. Just stay the course. We need you.

  5. i think what you do best is being so unjudgemental and SO EASY TO RELATE to, the way you give examples of how youve heard of or dealt with problems that happen very often. you are like a guiding light in a world of darkness-fuelled ignorance.
    thank you so much!
