    Pamela Simmons-Beasley, Attorney at Law

    19th Annual Seminar of The South Carolina Bankruptcy Law Association.

    On September 12, 2009 Karen Jenkins delivered to approximately 150 bankruptcy attorneys and judges a very informative, insightful and captivating presentation on the genesis of our current economic recession and the efforts of government to remedy the resulting wave of foreclosures with the Home Affordability and Stability Plan and Home Affordable Modification Program.  Not an easy group to impress, she won us over with her knowledge on the subject and her ease of presentation.  As a consumer bankruptcy attorney I was especially enlightened by the information on credit reports on how one goes about rebuilding credit after a bankruptcy filing.  She provided information that we can share with our clients and could benefit us personally. Ms. Jenkins’ style of presentation was most engaging and informative.

    D. Chenise Wiley, Attorney and Counselor at Law

    “Karen Jenkins brings to the table a wealth of financial knowledge and experience along with interpersonal skills that complement her ability to provide relevant information to her target audiences. She embodies confidence in her presentations while ensuring her message can be easily digested by a range of participants. Mrs. Jenkins' command of the intricacies of the financial market, consumer awareness, entrepreneurial opportunities, self-awareness and self-help strategies makes her more than qualified to educate, train and inspire on a vast array of topics. Her personality is a welcomed and refreshing change to the face of motivational speakers. She joyfully and sincerely extends the invitation to join her on the journey to a better you, and you are all the more enticed to come along for the ride.” July 22, 2010

    Katrina Macari, Media Specialist, SC Dept of Employment and Workforce

    “After interviewing Karen I was able to attend one of her financial workshops. Not only was Karen a great interview, but a dynamic, exciting speaker as well. She had this group at, "Hello!" She drew them in, and when the workshop was over I truly believe after interviewing a few of the participants she opened their eyes. She gave them a secret key to a magical door that most of them never knew existed. Karen was able to take her knowledge and put her audience in a bubble. She locked them in with her personality, and laughter. They were enthralled, I was amazed. I wish there were more Karen Jenkins out there!!” July 20, 2010

    Vanzell Haire, Managing Partner, The Immanuel Group

    “Karen Jenkins is the consummate professional in the environment of consulting with her clients as well as speaking before groups of all sizes. Karen's delivery is succinct, well-calculated and thorough. Her breadth of knowledge goes beyond the bounds of time for most engagements, but she has a unique delivery that keeps her audience captured and educates them to the point of having an understanding of her points by the conclusion of the session. I highly recommend Karen Jenkins for your next keynote or seminar event.” July 20, 2010

    Corwyn Melette, Broker in Charge, Complete Action Real Estate Services, Inc.

    “Karen is a hardworking, dedicated professional who really cares about her clients. Her expertise in financial matters is inspiring and she does not disappoint with her delivery of information. While it is sometimes difficult to deliver a presentation with relatively boring content, Karen does a great job of adding character. You will not be disappointed.” August 16, 2010

    C. Cummings, Augusta, Georgia

    I attended Mrs. Jenkins’ financial empowerment workshop recently at the Literature and Arts Festival in Columbia, SC.  I really enjoyed the very informative session.  This is the second seminar that I have attended and I learned new information this time.  I have purchased and read the book, Nobody Told Me”.  I wish this book existed when I first started working.  I learned what I know now by trial and error, making many mistakes along the way.  The book is a “MUST READ” for all young people before the age of 21!

    I enjoyed Mrs. Jenkins workshop, I totally felt her passion for financial empowerment.  She has an uncanny way of telling her story.  Great workshop.
