When we first met, I was feeling stuck in my business of thirty years. I knew my business needed to evolve, but I was not sure where I wanted to go or how I was going to get there. And I didn’t certainly didn’t know that I needed a coach!
When I started the coaching process with Laura, I was not really sure where it was going to take me.
As my business is a reflection of me, if I’m not feeling good about where it is going, then I’m not feeling good about me. Laura helped me to realized that I needed to look at my belief systems and challenge myself on the inside to get unstuck.
At times it was painful. I experienced fear and frustration in the “what the heck am I doing this for anyways” stage.
Her coaching was beneficial as it helped me focus on the changes I needed to make to move forward. Understanding my Human Design started the process. I have always known that there is more going on internally in a successful entrepreneur and business owner than just focusing on sales and the bricks and mortar concerns. It is often a part of a personal life journey.
Laura challenged my beliefs around what my photography would be, should be, and could be. I hadn’t thought about a new business model for a long time. My shift solidified for me that there are people who value and are willing to pay for the type of photography that I want to do.
On the practical side, her insight on marketing, being visible, and using social media in alignment with my design has been tremendously helpful.
From where I am today compared to when we first met, I feel unstuck, and I really like how my business is transforming and reinventing itself. I’m happier now that I have a new direction to move forward in and be at peace with this new stage of my career.

Coaching with Laura has given me a clear strategy, not only when it comes to how I make business decisions, but I also have a better understanding of the people around me. Left to my own devices, I’m in my head a lot, so her insight and experience give me a broader perspective. As a leader, I appreciate having an ally and an advocate who always has my best interest at heart.
When I first stated coaching with Laura, it was as part of a group program. I enjoyed the discussion and seeing things from different points of view. Being in the group community was collaborative and reassuring. I would hear other entrepreneurs asking questions I was asking myself and I would think, “This is not a dumb question. I am not the only one!” On the flip side, you get to hear things that would never have crossed your mind.
After the group program, I decided to continue with private coaching so we could delve deeper into my specific business goals and challenges. I love the structure of Laura’s coaching sessions, because we can go as high level or as specific (granular) as I want. Whether it’s an organizational or life challenge, or something as specific as an important presentation, you can always find a solution and an opportunity for growth.
Some of the biggest awareness I’ve gained from coaching with Laura is that when you are showing up in away that is aligned with both your power patterns and your game plan, you can’t go wrong!

I was not sure what to expect from Laura’s Super-Power Session, as I am quite focused on personal development and growth. What I experienced was incredible insightful revelations about myself that I instinctively knew, but had no idea the validity of them or how to apply them into my business and personal life. Laura was able to take some very spiritual and applicable traits and translate them into a practical and easy to understand model for my personal growth. Even with just one session, I could see value from her skills and experience and I look forward to even more exponential personal growth with my continued interactions with Laura.

Coaching with Laura has given me an awesome opportunity to grow and understand myself. The Inner Freedom process has increased my awareness of my emotions and physical reactions to situations that were creating high anxiety. It helped me see where I was avoiding taking action or communicating clearly. I didn’t want to deal with it because I didn’t know how. I’ve been wanting to “play big”, but I would run into the same challenges that prevented me from doing so. Now I understand why I have these reactions. It’s still a challenge, but it’s a more informed way of being. I’m in a really big period of growth, personally and professionally. I have a greater understanding of my past, present, and what I want to create in the future.
