HIT BY A DRUNK DRIVER AT OVER 100 MPH AND ALIVE TO TELL
Karen Mertes, a Lieutenant Colonel in our United States Air Force, was driving the speed limit on the interstate when she was struck by a drunk driver traveling over 100 mph.  He had a blood alcohol level of nearly three times the legal limit.  Both vehicles were totaled.  Her axle snapped in half, with brakes and steering inoperative.  Karen made a futile attempt to regain control of her vehicle as her car slid sideways down the interstate, with cars in the remaining lanes traveling by her at highway speeds.  During these split seconds, as her life hung in the balance, Karen made a bargain and promised that if she were fortunate to survive, she would spend the rest of her life helping others.  This was the genesis for what has become Fulfill Your Destiny, Inc.  http://www.fulfillyourdestiny.org


FULFILL YOUR DESTINY

Karen uses an entrepreneurial business model that she’s overlaid onto a non-profit organization, raising money for Fulfill Your Destiny in 11 ways, 5 of which involve her offering a professional service or product for donation.  Karen is dedicated to enriching the lives of others by bringing business and community together.

CONVERSATIONS WITH MOM I NEVER HAD: MOM, MONEY AND ME**
Karen’s Mom passed away very suddenly from a massive heart attack.  Karen was the executor, personal representative and trustee.  Combing the internet for resources to help, Karen didn’t find all that she needed so she created two checklists:  What to Do When Learning of the Passing of a Loved One, and The Asset Map which helps you find the treasure in your business and personal life, map your assets, and prepare your family for financial freedom.

**As an added bonus, Karen provides each attendee with a checklist of everything that must be done on the day, and during the first week and month upon learning of the passing of a loved one.  Special Tips for Executors are included as well.


TRIUMPH THROUGH TRAGEDY


Karen Mertes sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) when she was hit by a drunk driver traveling over 100 mph.  The impact upon her head and brain were multiple G-forces.  Karen’s brain literally cracked and bled inside her skull.

Karen is living proof of how only one concussion can change a life forever.  During this collision, Karen suffered multiple brain bleeds that impacted her memory, cognitive executive functioning and personality.  In a split second, that drunk driver had pushed the reset button on her career, family relationships and upon her whole life.

Karen was no longer the same person as she was before the crash.  Karen saw a different person when she looked in the mirror.  Karen now openly shares these insights as a TBI survivor and inspires others by explaining how she made gallons of lemonade out of that big lemon!
