Business Spotlight: Women Changing Lives

Karen Caprino-Burg knows a thing or two about life balance and being prepared for change. Her story shows that determination, continued action, and passion are key ingredients to long-term, sustainable success. Early in her fast-paced corporate career, Karen found herself raising a daughter as a single mother, while carefully navigating her way up the corporate ladder. For fifteen years, she oversaw the design development and facilities management of corporate offices for her employers. It was her mother’s sudden diagnosis with breast cancer that first changed the course of her life. That diagnosis coupled with a strong desire to go back to school to finish her undergraduate degree, led Karen to the University of Louisville and ultimately into medical school. While attending medical school, during the weekend of the Kentucky Derby, Karen’s life took another major turn. It was there she met her husband, Mark. Moving to Springfield, Illinois to be with Mark, she shifted her graduate work to Human Developmental Counseling. Marriage brought a whole new adventure… a blended family of five children… and all the busy-ness and financial pressure that comes with supporting a large family. Karen and Mark shared a desire for business ownership in order to create time and financial freedom which led them to open three franchise restaurants, with Karen overseeing the day-to-day management of them. Their dream for a better life soon fizzled as they realized that they were working more than ever and accumulating thousands of dollars in debt. It didn’t take long to realize that the businesses would never bring the kind of freedom they were seeking.

Finally in 1999, Karen and Mark were introduced to an Inc. 500 International manufacturer of consumable health and wellness products. Marketing for this now billion dollar company, enabled them to escape from the pressure of their thousands of dollars in debt and relocate to a home they love in Indianapolis. Working from her home office, Karen discovered her real passion and founded Women Changing Lives and Moms Changing Lives. She knew there were women ‘out there’ who were just like her. She knew there were women, like her, who were in search of personal, spiritual and financial wellness. Karen loves sharing with other women the business vehicle that has totally changed their lives. "Today's hectic lifestyle makes it difficult for anyone to live a wellness lifestyle," explains Karen, "but women are especially impacted. We are the ones who sacrifice our own health and well-being in order to give more to our bosses, our spouses, our children, our parents, our charities, and so on. At some point, we have to start taking care of ourselves."
