Lori has been a fantastic partner with ClientTether to develop omnichannel strategic communications for our clients. She is highly professional, incredibly organized, and she delivers top-notch content that our clients have loved. I highly recommend her!
The greatest testimonial you can give a person is a referral. I’ve referred Lori to several of my colleagues. When I was deciding whether to purchase my franchise and trying to understand the legal ramifications if I were to buy in, Lori was an invaluable resource. Not only did she give me legal advice, she translated that legal advice into practical business practice and realistic risks. Her advice allowed me to make my decision will a clear mind.
If you have Lori Karpman on your side, you can be guaranteed that whether you are turning your business model into a franchise or purchasing a franchise, everything, and I mean everything that needs to be thought of or to get done, will be on her list. What I love about Lori is her attention to detail and her commitment, her relentless commitment to excellent client success. I love working with her, and I'm looking forward to it for many, many more years as we expand our brand.
As a colleague I feel confident referring to Lori because I know she will bring the full depth of her unique expertise and experience as a franchisor, franchisee, and attorney to her client’s situation to support their success. She has the professional skill to get the job done and the personal empathy to develop a strong and trustful relationship.
Lori is an exceptional coach for both business and personal guidance. Aside from her deep professional experience as an attorney, business owner and business consultant, Lori is unusually generous with her time, and truly cares about the person behind her “client”. She has terrific insights and is refreshingly candid in her advice. Most of all, Lori is a great partner for talking through ideas and issues, and she does not have a “take my advice or not” approach. Lori listens carefully and helps you make good, informed decisions, even if those choices end up being different from what Lori initially recommended. The best part about having Lori as a coach and advisor is that you understand why you’re making certain decisions, because you’ve considered the pros and cons of different alternatives. That knowledge is key to overcoming the various challenges along the way.
I have had the pleasure of working with Lori on different projects in many different capacities. Lori has a very diverse knowledge that provides her with an ability to provide a multi-faceted approach on all business matters. She is highly versed on all facets of franchising brands and brings a creative insight to building brands. Lori is an extremely dedicated individual that takes great personal pride in her work and her business relationships.
Lori is absolutely amazing. She took my poor copy and transformed it into an extremely attractive and piece of art, and in my voice no less. I read the final copy of my sales page last night and almost cried from joy. Words can not discribe how overjoyed I am.
Lori Karpman & Associates has been a valuable resource for all of our franchising questions and needs. Right from concept development to the first public presentation at the Franchise Show, they have been fantastic to have around to guide us through it all!

I have known Lori for many years, and I can honestly say that sheis a true entrepreneur in every sense of the word. She isengaging, honest and extremely well versed in all aspects offranchising. A true professional at what she does and wouldhighly recommend her work.
I had the pleasure of working with Lori during my career transition. She is both compassionate and creative, and is a wealth of knowledge. She caused me to consider some options that I had not previously considered, and armed me with an incredible amount of resources to explore all of my options.
Lori has been the best mentor we could have asked for and provides much more than just traditional business mentoring and advice. She has gone above and beyond connecting us to the right people and places in order for us to excel in our business and make sure we stay on track.

Lori is an amazing business coach. She’s empathetic but direct in her approach and holds you accountable for the plan that you set out. With her background in business and law she is particularly effective in her niche of executive and entrepreneur coaching. Her insight was instrumental in me gaining clarity around the necessary skills and strategies needed to grow my business. I’m grateful for her continued guidance, wisdom and support and highly recommend her as your coach.
Lori helped me figure out how to scale my business and saved me countless hours of research and paperwork with a few simple consultations. I had always thought that I had to franchise if I wanted to get to scale, but Lori helped me understand the differences between the many options of licensing, franchising, and other avenues that I didn’t even know existed. Now I have clear direction, no confusion, and a partner I know I can count on to help me navigate the future as I license the IP that I worked my whole life to create. Thanks Lori!!!
If you take the time to get to know Lori you will not be disappointed!! Her knowledge reaches far and wide and she never hesitates to give you an honest answer when asked for advice or opinion! She always finds time for you and doesn’t hesitate to share her personal experiences especially when she knows it is provided to help solve a problem or make a decision!

I appreciate the opportunity to call Lori my mentor and friend

This special promotion affords Hempire® a unique opportunity to give back to the environment and live our mission of sustainability all the more.
Lori came to my attention because of a Project I was working on and her Retail Articles hit the mark for the answers I was seeking. She is very knowledgable, personable, energetic and embraced the role of Teacher during our time spent together.
