I started my career as a writer and creative director in advertising.
Eventually I quit because I was passionate about channeling my creativity in a way to help others!
I started to write books which I call “self help for people who wouldn’t be caught dead doing self help” – merging stylish graphics with humor and psychological research.
Many of my personal development books went onto become big bestsellers – like How To Be Happy Dammit and Think Happy. Plus my books started to be read, loved and praised by a bunch of cool celebrities.
Back in 2010, after my son Ari was born, I started to create inspirational virtual posters. Unfortunately back then I had what I call “mommy brain.” I was an exhausted, overly busy newbie mommy – and having trouble concentrating for the long periods of time which were needed to write long books.
However…I was feeling highly inspired about merging my design skills with my life quote writing and creating virtual inspirational quote posters!
Today I decided to gather together a collection of my original Karen Salmansohn quotes – from when my son was born.
Below are my very first NotSalmon images – which I created in the years 2010 – 2015. Voila! 🙂
Feel free to print out these motivating life quotes and post them around your home or office. Or share them on Instagram and tag me! I’m @notsalmon! I promise I’ll wave a friendly hello back – and might re-share your share!
