Personal Growth Specialist, Author, and Inspirational speaker.
Karen Asemper is a successful Inspirational Speaker, Actress, Author and Life Coach.
Having graced our screens in the nations much loved soaps and dramas Coronation Street, Eleventh Hour and Hustle. Karen now plays Mandy Wallace in ITV’s Cold Feet. She has also worked with Sir Patrick Stewart and Anna Friel to name a few. This was not however her first choice of career, but after pursuing her first love of dance and training at two of the most prestigious dance schools in the world, Northern School Of Contemporary Dance and Alvin Ailey, what seemed to be just another punch from the hand of fate in a long line of adverse luck, she was badly injured and told she would no longer be able to dance professionally.
What must have felt like the final blow came after her move to Leeds where she half escaped but half clung on to a past which saw her at the age of three watching an alcoholic suicidal mother attempt to leave this world, then growing up suffering constant racial abuse and physical attacks from the far-right fascist political party the National Front. It climaxed for Karen at age 17 when her boyfriend tried to involve her in a life of crime.
Not surprisingly Karen learned to escape from much of this torment by immersing herself in her dreams. Through a strength no one can fully comprehend, these goals manifested into a solid focus and then a self belief that has powered her into the woman she is today, a belief that we all have choices and the ability and right to make them.
She is truly an inspiration to us all and a welcome reminder that what we hold inside of us can bring us untold richness.
From My Blog
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear do not sit and think about it, go out and get busy.” Dale Carnegie
If you have been wondering where your monthly newsletter has been well let me take you on a journey. Last year due to illness it showed me that as a one-man band I couldn’t always be out on the road. When you are self employed if you don’t work you don’t get paid, so I needed to take the pressure off myself where travelling was concerned. The only way to heal is to rest, and hotel food and four hour travel times weren’t good

“As a Manager of an international conference focused on women’s empowerment and leadership, I had the opportunity to meet truly amazing people from all around the world. Karen definitely left the strongest impression on me, as I had a good feeling about her from the beginning. I asked her to open the conference with her presentation and I must say that was a complete success. Karen inspired and amazed us all. Her story is all about surviving in spite of life’s difficulties, its about fighting for ones dreams and making them real. Karen gives out good energy and herself is an example of a positive attitude and approach to life. I hope she will continue helping people find their path. Thank you Karen.“
