Business Spotlight: Women Changing Lives

Karen Caprino-Burg knows a thing or two about life balance and being prepared for change. Early in her 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, Karen met her soul mate, Mark.

Moving to Springfield, Illinois to be with Mark, she shifted her graduate work to Human Developmental Counseling. Marriage to Mark 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.

Their first attempt to create a freedom lifestyle involved the opening of three franchise restaurants, with Karen overseeing the day-to-day management for all three. It didn’t take long to realize that the businesses would never bring the kind of freedom they were seeking.

In 1999, introduction to an Inc 500 International manufacturer of safer, healthier wellness products did fulfill its freedom promise. Karen and Mark escaped from the pressure of their remaining thousands of dollars in debt and relocated to a home they love in Indianapolis. Through their home-based business, Karen discovered her real passion and founded Women Changing Lives. She knew there were women out ‘there’ who were just like herself. Not like our moms or grandmothers but women in search of personal, spiritual and financial wellness. Karen loves sharing with other women the home based business vehicle that 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.”

Women Changing Lives provides the opportunity to do exactly that. That’s because we believe that it’s never too late to take control of your own destiny.
