Karen Maraj - Digital Business Advisor
Karen Maraj

Karen Maraj – an accomplished Digital Strategist & Pathfinder, E-Commerce Entrepreneur & Lifestyle Maven, joyfully coaches and connects people ­to help their lives, online companies and careers flourish.

Karen has independently developed – and continues to manage – profitable niched websites that provide insider information, user advice and travel planning to a loyal community of thousands of luxury travellers. Her expertise and knowledge grew out of 15+ years of corporate experience building and managing websites and digital properties for OMERS, one of Canada’s largest pension plans.

A skilled photographer and affiliate marketer, Karen is a location-independent E-impresario who has turned a pleasing side-project into an online business. She now helps budding e-commerce entrepreneurs grow their small businesses with strategies designed to reach and sell products and services to online customers.

Karen also runs the Hamilton E-Commerce & Online Entrepreneurs Meet-Up, inspiring others to follow a path to online freedom. She also mentors StartUps at the Forge McMaster in their e-commerce and online marketing strategy. And although distant shores and lands continue to entice, Karen along with Jackson (her cat) and Benji (her dog) enjoy living in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Karen’s bio was crafted by long-time friend and former colleague Dwayne Stevenson.
