I’M LAURA AND I HELP AMBITIOUS WOMEN GO FROM SETTLING TO SUCCEEDING BY CREATING A BUSINESS AROUND (OR FROM) THEIR PASSION.
I want you to know that it is possible (and your entitlement) to actually wake up in the morning and be excited about what you do. It’s your right to actually want to ‘work’. To get that ready brek glow, to feel pride, to feel immense passion about what you do and to actually make money at the same time.
I know this is possible because it’s what I’m doing now, and I want to show you how you can do it too; minus the stress, mistakes (many) and sleepless nights.
It wasn’t always like this though, so let me rewind and take you on a little journey … From the age of 15 I’ve always worked, part time jobs, side line businesses, all which grew into a kick ass career. I’m not shy of hard work or a challenge and I’ve climbed the corporate ladder through sheer grit, determination and commitment (with a few tears). On paper it looked amazing; travel, big title, package, bonus, benefits, seat at the big boys table etc. Others said I was ‘lucky’ and had the ‘perfect life’, but I wasn’t and I hadn’t - I was committed, relentless and stubborn (Taurus) and made big sacrifices to have this.
I can honestly say I loved what I did and the difference I made, however a few years ago I realised one thing …
I WAS TRADING TIME FOR MONEY AND BUILDING SOMEONE ELSE'S BANK ACCOUNT
I was damn good at what I did (yes, I said that), I knew I made a positive difference (feedback is a gift), I would happily take on extra responsibility to help the business and my personal growth, but this came at an expense of the one thing you can’t buy - TIME!
I was a slave to the flashing light on my blackberry, 12 hour days were the norm, I put out that many crisis fires I was practically a fully fledged fire fighter. Working in HR I wore a ton of different hats everyday, but the hat I loved wearing the most was the ‘development’ hat. If a metaphorical hat had a style this was my favourite. A timeless black trilby with sprinkles of silver glitter, a bright pink ribbon round the base, a big plume of orange and pink feathers and a big diamanté brooch for even more sparkle … Now you see my creative side!
I KNEW I NEEDED TO DO SOMETHING
My kids were getting older and I’d broken the corporate glass ceiling, so what next? I started to think about working for myself. In fact I THOUGHT A LOT!
I thought, I faffed, I tried, I wasted time, I cried, I struggled, I compared, I doubted, I over thought, I waited for perfection (newsflash - it never came). I wanted it, but I didn’t know what ‘it’ was.
MY BIG LOVE, MY PASSION, MY BUSINESS, MY LIFESTYLE
I tried the other hats and whilst I rocked them, they didn’t give me that ready brek glow. So a bit like that favourite little black dress that saves our clothing dilemmas, I decided to put the other hats away and wear my treasured favourite trilby.
My passion for development, my pride for seeing others grow, this was my true love. For years I’d been giving (as I now see it) coaching for free. I’d picked up that many tools in my career (did I mention I also worked in finance, operations and marketing?), that I’d often help friends and friends of friends with their struggles. From business ideas to branding, mindset to making it happen, I’d gladly share value to help others achieve.
I was doing ‘it’ but it wasn’t a real business (yet). The idea that this could be hit me as I sat watching my daughter play netball but I still didn’t have the vision, I just knew the idea.
INVEST IN YOURSELF, YOU DESERVE IT
It wasn’t luck that got me these breakthroughs; I invested. Invested in a coach, worked on my mindset, worked through the doubt and realised my dream could be reality. When I had a plan, when I had clarity, when I had conviction, when I lasered in on my direction, when I committed, when I found my self belief I was (and am) unstoppable.
As I spoke to more women, I saw that they faced the same struggle I had; they wanted more, they wanted balance, they wanted to achieve, they wanted it all!
Some may say it’s not possible, me, I know it is. I know that you can build an amazing business from your passion. I know that you can have the lifestyle you love. I know that you can have freedom and run your own diary. I know that you can set your own commitments, and I know that you can make money (and big money) all on your terms.
I WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS TOO
Now I’ve swapped the board room for bistros, meetings for meet ups and my stilettos are now worn with skinny jeans. I work on my own timeline (the only regular diary entry is my daily workout) and I have the time freedom I craved to be a taxi driver for my kids and have a growing business that gives me the lifestyle I love. I want to show you how you can do this too.
Maybe your passion isn’t helping others, maybe it’s baking, fitness, painting, DIY, whatever your passion is, I want you to be able to do what I’ve done minus the stress, mistakes (many) and sleepless nights.
