Karen F Fabbri

With over 25 years of business and marketing experience, Karen Fabbri works with small businesses to define their brand and create communications programs that help them succeed.

In 2001, I opened my first store, Moxie, a women’s shoes, bags and accessories boutique. In 2008, I gave her a sister store in a nearby suburb.

I LOVED being a small business owner and I adored my shops. I stayed open for 15+ years and closed due to rising rents, world domination by Amazon and other online sites and the popularity of fast-fashion.

Not a day goes by that I don’t miss my business. There is such honor in serving communities, employing others and juggling the 100s of daily challenges of small business ownership.

I understand small business. I lived small business and it is now a part of my “character DNA.” That’s why I have chosen to help other small businesses now. I marry my past corporate communications experience with my first-hand knowledge of small business challenges to identify and solve problems which are sometimes hard to see when you are too close to them.
