How COVID-19 led to the Balanced Life Planner® by Karen Rae


Hello, my name is Karen Rae, I’m the founder of Balanced Life by Karen Rae® and
creator of The Signature Balanced Life Planner®. I’m a single mother of two young
daughters, a homemaker, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and business owner who
leads a very busy life. When life slowed down as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic

it was a blessing in disguise to my family.

It was during this time that I reflected upon my life and knew that once things
returned to “normal” I didn’t want “normal” to look anything like it looked prior to
the pandemic. Moving forward I wanted to live my life more intentionally and focus
upon those things in life that matter the most - faith, family, finances, fitness,

and friendships.

I was determined to regain control of my life, so I wrote a plan for how I was going
to do it. When I was finished I thought, “Wow, I really need this and so do others!”
This thought inspired me to create the Balanced Life Planner®, an organizational
roadmap that walks individuals through how to set their life goals and plan their
days in a way that achieves balance in the 5 Fundamental Areas of Life.

The Signature Balanced Life Planner® is a culmination of lessons and experiences
I have gained over my lifetime and enriched with ideas from others. I want the
Balanced Life Planner® to motivate you to become the BEST version of yourself and
live your life to the fullest. I believe that by making little improvements each day,
you will feel more confident and achieve your own personal version of success!

Please connect with me and the Balanced Life community @BalancedLifeKR on
social media and TOGETHER we will find our way back to what matters most -

faith, family, finances, fitness, and friendships.

To Your Success,
