Finding Zeni Is about Discovering Your Authentic Self

Be the authentic person God intended you to be, not the person others want, need, or expect you to be.

Nikki Karis

Finding Zeni, Inc. is the inspirational company of author and inspiring speaker, Nikki Karis, an idea Karis first gave birth to in 2008, a year after her father passed away, and she began the most crucial part of her journey of awakening which lasted until January 14, 2020. It is also her publishing house, born from her book series, Escape the Swamp.

Through her various creative and inspiring endeavors, including her book series, Escape the Swamp, GodDogs, and Becoming Grace; her social activism site – T1 Rise; her inspiring merchandise site – Karis Brands (now redirected to her Tail Life Shop); her virtual theme-park site, Zenilution; and her favorite project, Tail Life, a merchandise site uniting people and their pets around the world, Karis seeks to empower people to break free of their limitations and become the authentic person God intended them to be.

In the Escape the Swamp series, Zeni, the protagonist, narrates a theme-park adventure ride, recounting the tales of her escapades to find Prince Charming, only to be met by a swamp filled with toads. During her adventures, Zeni unearths some life-altering wisdom which changes her perception of life, love, and most importantly, herself. Armed with this invaluable knowledge, Zeni undergoes a spiritual metamorphosis, rises in her empowerment, and successfully escapes the swamp, becoming the hero of her very own fairy tale. Zeni also serves as the narrator for Zenilution where readers can connect to Keep Gigging, Zeni Says, I am Zeni, and Fairy Tails Rock, all virtual rides contained within the theme-park. A line of inspiring video games, Toadily Games, is also in the works.

Explore Karis’ inspiring projects, and get to know Zeni, who is ready to assist you in your journey of discovering and becoming your authentic self.

Meet Nikki Karis, Author, Inspiring Speaker, and Founder of Finding Zeni

Meet Nikki Karis, author, inspiring speaker, animal advocate, and creative entrepreneur. Karis’ given name is Nikki Marie Kavouklis, and she resides on the West Coast of Florida with her rescue cats and dogs, who inspire her as she creates and writes.

Prior to launching her inspiring projects, including her book series and merchandise site, she was a practicing personal injury attorney for twenty-eight years, having her own law firm with six locations at the height of her practice. During the pandemic of 2020, however, Karis finally decided to take a leap of faith and pursue her lifelong dream of inspiring others via her empowering books and uplifting merchandise.

Thus, throughout 2020 and 2021, Karis made preparations to launch Karis Brands (now redirected to her Tail Life Shop), an inspiring merchandise site, along with T1 Rise, a super-brand of eight social activism risings, and Tail Life, a merchandise site uniting people and their pets around the world. She also began formulating plans for Tailzee, a social network platform, devoted to uniting humans and their animals around the world. These projects, along with many others, will begin launching the beginning of 2022 and beyond.

For pleasure, Karis enjoys reading, traveling, rescuing animals, collecting art, and decorating her circa 1925 home. She also loves exploring the world and hopes to grow Finding Zeni, Inc., the holding company for her inspiring projects, into a successful, caring, and compassionate company with a mission to uplift and empower others. Her future plans include building a home and an animal rescue center on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, where she frequently retreats to write.

Stay tuned for more information, as Karis is set to release the first book of her Goddogs series on February 21, 2022, and finally market book one of her other series, Escape the Swamp (formerly The Toad Chronicles series). Also, check the Tail Life Shop for her other series, Becoming Grace, available in paperback, e-book, and audio formats, as well as her inspiring Karis Brands products.
