Christchurch Life Coach and Earthquakes Survivor and Tells How to Overcome Adversity for Personal Success


CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand August, 2012 – Karen Scott - the New Zealand entrepreneur, author, professional motivation speaker and life coach – has survived several financial, emotional and literally earth shattering disasters in her time, including the Christchurch earthquake which destroyed her business and left her with serious physical injuries. Despite being knocked down several times, Karen has risen from the rubble and founded Kickstart Life Coaching New Zealand to share her story and her wisdom on how to remain motivated in the face of adversity.

One of the most devastating and potentially crippling experiences Karen has endured was the earthquake in Christchurch where she saw her café and bar crumble around and on top of her. “The Christchurch earthquake was for me, and for so many others, a terrifying experience which had significant ramifications on my professional, financial and personal life. I am still wracked with fear when I remember being trapped under the rubble, and of course the physical effects lasted a while, but the emotional stuff can haunt you longer if you’re not careful,” says Karen.

But even a collapsed building couldn’t hold Karen down. In fact, Karen’s optimism, resilience and coping strategies meant she saw the rubble from the earthquake as a way to start over and stay motivated – she was determined to earn back what she’d lost.

“I have opened a new café and home baking business in New Zealand despite the continued aftershocks because this is home. I have also recently restarted my Christchurch life coaching business, which had temporarily been on hold because of the earthquakes but I thought this is when more people than ever need a hand to overcome adversity, get back on track and take charge of their lives again,” says Karen Scott.

“Karen is an amazing lady,” says Mike Catton from NLP Christchurch. “Her strength of character in overcoming adversity in her life is an inspiration to us all. Throughout her challenges she has kept a positive spirit and had enough resourcefulness to still look out for others and care for them too.”

Kickstart Life Coaching helps people evaluate their status, goals, and priorities and gives them a clearer picture of what they want to do in life. Karen Scott believes that procrastination and frustration are key factors that leave people stagnant and unable to move on from tragic experiences or even smaller everyday life problems.

Using over 20 years of entrepreneurial experience and having herself risen from the rubble, Karen supports New Zealanders to get their lives back on track and helps them achieve the goals they want to accomplish in life.
