She earned her Master of Business Administration at the Schulich School of Business, York University in Toronto, Canada with specialization in Entrepreneurial Studies and Strategic Management; as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and a Database Administration certification.

Karen is currently the CEO of Epigram Consulting Services Inc., a business consulting and coaching company that specializes in helping individuals, creatives, entrepreneurs and small to mid-sized businesses with fundamental business needs.

Epigram Consulting was birthed from the needs of individuals and small business owners who reached out to me and asked me for help with their businesses. These owners were good at what they did but were lost when it came to implementing certain business strategies and structures. Because of my background in business and information technology, they came to me for help, believing that I could assist them with their problems. After working with me and seeing results, these business owners kept coming back for more advice. Epigram Consulting kick-started and became a company that helps individuals and small businesses create and grow.”

What is stopping you from going after your dream – time, family or money? There is always a perceived excuse or obstacle, we call them deterrents.”

Once upon a time, there was young Jamaican American girl from Manhattan who traveled all the way to University Park, Pennsylvania to meet the love of her life (a native Hollis, Queens resident). Where does the story go from here? Currently, the book is still being written. For the thirteen plus years shared together they have each accomplished quite a bit for a couple in their thirties.

A licensed attorney by trade, Natasha held various stints in the corporate world prior to making a foray into fashion and writing. Having been a victim of bullying as a child growing up, Natasha learned to seek out fashion as a source of strength early on and actively uses it as a personal means of empowerment; because of her own experiences with bullying and her strong desire to help others within the plus size community, Natasha started Dressing Room 8 to provide a web-based resource where women can gain personal and professional empowerment through her fashion and lifestyle focused blog, consultation and coaching services. Dressing Room 8 helps women how to think with clarity, dress with confidence, and live with purpose.

Kahlil Nurse is an Electrical Engineer who wears many different hats (just like his wife). He is the Tech Guru for too many people to mention (which his friends and family can totally attest to). He has been the technical support for Dressing Room 8 and Sistas On Fire. As a fan of cars, technology and finance, he embraces opportunities to learn, grow, and enjoy his hobbies to the fullest.

In September 2017, they decided to share their marriage and thoughts to media with their exciting new podcast WokeNFree where they talk about relationships, education, religion, politics, music, history, fashion, diversity in the media, entertainment, empowerment matters, life hacks, technology, cultural disparities in the world, and everything in between. You can listen to a new WokeNFree episode every Wednesday for #WokeNFreeWednesday.

Recently, Kahlil and Natasha were on our show talking about WokeNFree podcast.

During our conversation, they talked about:

– Their thoughts about the Black Panther movie
– Some of Natasha’s and Kahlil’s story including how they met
– The values that their parents instilled in them when they were growing up
– How did the WokeNFree podcast start and the work it takes to make a WokeNFree episode happen
– Some show highlights, some topics that are coming up on the show and some dream guests that they would like to have on the show
– Their message for Blacks who would like to become content creators
– Words of wisdom for Black couples who would like to work together
