Short biography
Karen Salmansohn is a career columnist in the popular – hell, omnipresent –AM-NY Newspaper, offering her extreme business success tips under the heading of “1-MINUTE CAREER THERAPIST.” Always blunt, never boring, Karen provides easy to digest techniques that incorporate unusual epiphany-inspiring metaphors and her trademark memorable edgy humor.

Karen’s been written up nationally and internationally for her best-selling feisty, empowering books, inspiring numerous journalists to call her “Deepak Chopra meets Carrie Bradshaw.” Another comparison often heard: “What Jon Stewart does for the news…making news funny and entertaining …Karen Salmansohn does for the self help book industry…adding her edgy humor and entertaining graphics, adding some needed improvement to the usually corny/dry voice of self improvement.”

Interestingly enough, Jon Stewart himself has even gone on record as loving Karen’s writing, saying specifically that “Salmansohn has the soul of a stand up comic.” Not your usual description of a self help book author, eh?
