Karen's also the founder of notsalmon.com - a highly popular inspirational site! She calls her site notsalmon - because everyone's always mispronouncing her last name as Salmon - saying Karen SALMON-sohn instead of SALMAN-sohn. So she's always saying NOT-SALMON. She figured it was easier for people to find her on the internet if her site were simply NOT-SALMON.com
