Karen Jacobsen takes you on a journey:

  • From her small town
    childhood near Australia’s Great Barrier Reef
  • To becoming “The GPS Girl®” whose voice is in  400 million devices & smartphones
  • To building a career and business in the Big Apple.

Karen shares the many starts, stops, detours (and a few disasters) she encountered along her own road to success, proving:

It Is Never Too Late To Recalculate

Her stories are relatable, real-world examples, and her five turn-by-turn directions teach people how to use their internal GPS system to Recalculate along the way and reach their destinations. However they define it: whether in life, business or both.

Anything is possible. The impact and potential is tangible.
