Karen MacKenzie

I’m a multi-passionate Certified Online Business Manager® with decades of business experience who enjoys planning, organizing, and creating systems & processes.
My mission is to streamline your operations, to free up the time and mental space to allow you to focus on what truly matters—serving more clients.

With over 20 years of experience in Accounting and Finance, including 11 years in a Fortune 50 company, I bring a wealth of skills to support your business. I’ve especially honed my skills of being organized, analytical, and detail-oriented.

Throughout my financial career, I developed the skills of planning and managing projects, creating systems and processes, and, of course, tracking metrics and money. Every step of the way, I’ve collaborated with teams to get things done.
I have the tools, training, and transferable skills to provide valuable business solutions.

My Process:

My process begins with a comprehensive business assessment which I use to create a Progress Roadmap, so you know what to work on next, providing clarity, focus, and peace of mind.

Centralizing your operations may not sound exciting, but this not only makes everything more efficient, but it also gives you the feeling of more control over your business. My Efficiency Central package gives you what you need to begin to experience the calm, order, and organization of centralization.

I also offer custom implementation packages to make progress on your most important priorities.

A bit more about me:

Being out in nature energizes me! Hiking and kayaking are my go-to happy places.

I enjoy learning, exploring, and following my curiosity. My number one hobby is reading. I’m committed to continuing education—to expanding my expertise through ongoing training.

Self-development has been a lifelong fascination of mine. As the saying goes, “Business is a personal growth journey,” and what better place to challenge yourself in almost every way than to own a business!

I’m proud to uphold the vision and mission of the Certified Online Business Manager Community as follows:
