Are You Thriving or Surviving?


Welcome fellow artists, creatives, coaches, healers, intuitives, dream makers, solo-prenuers and big hearted love bugs! I'm Laurie Marie, a story teller, dreamer, intuitive healer, artist, lover of all things cute and a Saucy Boss Babe for over a decade! Above all, I'm on a mission!

I'm on a mission To guide women to being seeN & to stop play small... 

To be seen as the powerful and empowered goddess that you truly are! To stop feelings of being invisible once and for all. To end hiding in there businesses and their lives and to start thriving and be fully seen. You too have a mission, a very special assignment planted as a seed at birth. It's been there whispering to you ever so gently, wishing, hoping, wanting for you to step into your life's mission.

If you've found your way here to my website, I'm guessing it was no accident. A little voice inside of you is calling, it's your soul. Long ago a seed was planted and it's time to bring it to life. We have a big mission ahead of us my loves and we can't keep hiding. I know because I've spent most of my life hiding.

Hiding from what I know I'm here to do, hiding in my body, hiding in relationships, hiding behind a camera, hiding in my own skin, all the while want to feel as though I belonged yet feeling invisible most days and being a wall flower in social settings. My fear told me I didn't belong, told me I wasn't deserving, pretty enough, skinny enough or smart enough at times...


I love telling stories visually + spiritually. It's what I've been doing my whole life. I choose to see the world through two filters, LOVE + BEAUTY. I take Big Hearted Creative Love Bugs and help them stop the patterns and stories that keep you from sharing you're gifts, that keep you in hiding and take you from surviving to thriving! I've got GIFTS TO SHARE + YOU do too! Let's get started! 

Before I began my journey of Self-Love & Self-Acceptance I was merely surviving.


I'd been unhappy in my own skin for over a decade. I had low self-esteem, my self-worth was wrapped up in my job & my confidence was at an all time low... The majority of my life I'd spent hiding, keeping myself small and feeling trapped in my body.

ARE Playing small?


  • Are you living in your fullest expression of who you are?
  • Can't remember the last time you felt free & alive?
  • Do you dance in public? 
  • Are you striving for perfection?


  • Do you avoid difficult conversations like the plague?
  • Is it easier to binge watch Netflix with your mate than have an intimate conversation with him/her?  
  • Do you have sex with the lights off?
  • Are you carrying anger or resentment for anyone?
  • Is forgiveness a struglle?


  • Have you been avoiding starting your business or procrastinating on taking it to the next level?
  • Have you avoided getting head shots taken for your website?
  • Avoid networking?
  • Is video or FB Live a Hell No for you?


  • Feeling Invisible?
  • Do you stay busy just to avoid talking with other people?
  • Do you tend to wall flower it up in social situations?
  • Skipping the pool party because the thought of wearing a bathing suit makes you want to run?
  • Need a few drinks in order to relax in social settings?

Any of this sound familiar... YOU KNOW...

This is The LITTLE VOICE INSIDE OUR HEADs THAT like to keep us small & TELLS us:

  • who are you to run your own business?
  • you don't know enough, aren't smart enough
  • no one will care what you have to say
  • what do I have to share
  • who are you to serve
  • you don't belong
  • don't take up too much space
  • you aren't ready
  • how will you pay your bills?
  • you don't have enough education, experience, background or degrees

Yes, that little voice that tells us we aren't good enough and keeps us small also tells us we might fail. Then to make matters worse sometimes our family members or friends don't believe we can do it either and we use these beliefs to build evidence as why we can't do it either.


I've been an entrepreneur for over a decade and I've learned a lot along the way. I also know that know that without mentorship, without having someone helping you see the forest through the trees, that it can be difficult to move through those thoughts and voices that want to keep us small, that want to keep us from moving forward.

Having a mentor and a coach can help you not only move through the blocks that keep you stuck, hold you accountable and I can also help you understand how your fear works, how you process and how to move forward into freedom because...


The sleepless nights, the creditors calling, the oh-so-fun game called “pick-a-bill,” the lights and heat being shut off, the embarrassing decline of the credit card as your standing in line with full shopping cart of groceries, the even more humiliating glances and eye rolls of judgement as you pull out the food stamps card that was so obviously screaming "look at me, I'm on welfare!" The constant job hopping hoping that this next one will give a feeling of purpose...

I know the worry, anxiety and overwhelm you feel at the thought of actually going after your dreams. I know that same feeling comes up when you think of not just going for it, but failing at it.

I'm all too familiar with that voice of self doubt too. The one that wants to keep you small, have you hide, stay invisible, keeps you stuck in the soul-sucking job where you are undervalued, underpaid and overworked... you know, the one you hate.

Or how about the relationship that doesn't feel right and is maybe even toxic but hey, at least he provides for the health insurance and a steady paycheck and I don't wanna die alone, right?! That voice that is keeping you in on a Friday night because "we can't afford it" instead of going on adventures to exotic lands and tasting foods you have never even heard of!

The one that tells you if you change at all you won't be loved or belong anymore. Yes... I know the breakdowns, the get back-ups, the tears and the victories!



A life of freedom, options, travel, love and deeper connection . A life of serving others, living your purpose with passion & abundance, being the fullest expression of who you truly are and making money to create more amazing moments and experiences for you and your loved ones!


I also know that you have a gigantic heart and you want to serve. You have a purpose, a deep desire to help others with your gifts and when you just have the right tools, mindset and know how, I know you will fly, my dear!

I know all of this because I have been there and I’m there once again! I’m here to tell you everything you want  and more is possible! You just have to say YES! Give yourself permission to go for it! Invest in the most priceless gift in the whole wide world, YOU!  

If you’re ready to take a leap toward being the best version of yourself and living a life of purpose, let's hop on the phone for a few moments and see if we’d be a good fit!

[Mexican Proverb]



You are a goddess, a rising star and you should be seen as such and I'm here to help! Long ago you were planted with a gift, a gift to share with the world and now is the time to share it with others. The beauty in this is that along the way you must allow others to see you and celebrate in bringing your gifts to life. Staying small isn't serving you & it definitely isn't serving the man or woman out there who's been praying for you to have the courage to step out fully and be the Queen that you are!
