Hey, I’m Kari.
I started DRISKOTECH in February 2014 with the intent on helping rid the world of crappy direct sales videos. And while I still do that, life sent me a little bit of a curveball.
February of 2017, my husband died unexpectedly from a massive ruptured brain aneurysm. It shook our world and put me and our two daughters onto a new journey with an uncertain path. It hasn’t always been pretty, some shit is down right ugly. But we are slowly but surely healing in our own ways as we learn and grow into our new normals.
This is my journey.
And while I’m still teaching you ‘video awesomeness,’ I hope to inspire you with our journey, too. Yeah, you’re gonna hear some shit that’s hard to hear every once in a while… I’ll be sharing our grief journey and letting you peek into our world as we learn to live again.
I’m a different person than I was before Eric died. And I like who I am a whole lot better now.
My priorities and perspective have shifted. How could they not?! I have no tolerance for bullshit. I feel more intensely. I have more of a sense of urgency. And there’s so much more to life than the hustle. And sometimes grief will stop me in my tracks.
Take it from a recovering workaholic who was married to an incredible, young, successful, high-profile high-school football coach who was also a workaholic… it’s important to really take time for the people you love in this world, to REALLY take time and prioritize these people. And those people are more than likely those who live in your home.
I’m here to remind you to shut off your phone every once in a while, to power down your computer. To live and laugh with your people. To appreciate your spouse and not take your people for granted.
I’m also here to help you work smarter and not harder, so you can put time into those you love… It’s about working to live, not living to work. Make a video so it can make the most impact and then enjoy the moments with your people.
Blessings to you and yours. I hope you stick around for a while…
New year, new me, new look, new passion… still video.
With all my fuckin’ love,
Oh… and to the college professor I had who called me into his office to discuss my thesis paper, only to tell me that my writing sucked….
To you, I say, “BOOM! In yer face old man… I’m still a successful person who contributes awesome stuff to the world!”
