Most of us are faced with blocks that keep us from our life's purpose. These blocks, whether they are in our own minds and hearts, or from others' expectations, put up walls around our hearts, and keep us for being "seen" in this world as we truly are. When I first started working with Laurie Marie, this was the case for me. I had little or no confidence in my ability to create and sustain a spiritually purposeful business, and I was at an all time low in my professional mindset. Laurie Marie helped me overcome the obstacles, as they came up, layer by layer, understand my fears, and overcome them. There was a time when not only did I not believe that I could ever fulfill my dream, but I was not even sure how to go about putting the small kernel of a dream into action! Today, my dream is in motion, and I am sharing it with the world!! I cannot recommend enough what it will do for you to work with such a compassionate, dedicated mentor, who will help you learn the tools you need and to become free of what is holding you back, to gain the confidence you need to live your dreams. And by the way, Laurie Marie has LIVED THIS - she is the real deal, and knows the struggle from the inside out. YOU CAN DO THIS! - Milada R
“Laurie Marie has her profession perfected. She immediately makes you feel comfortable and provides a non-judgmental environment to let your hair down (literally!) and have some fun. She truly wants to celebrate the beauty of all women." - Jackie
Laurie Marie is an amazing Coach. Laurie Marie has an amazing gift and provides her clients with insight, knowledge, and guidance in a non-threatening and very comfortable manner. I was quick to trust her with my most difficult circumstances and most private feelings, and I found that she has the uncanny ability to provide ease, even as she helped me move through some painful and often difficult subject matter.
At the time of Laurie Marie's coaching, I found myself stuck personally and professionally. I was overwhelmed with a family circumstance that exhausted me physically and mentally. I had also just recently made a major career decision that felt very scary and very overwhelming, truth be told, I was struggling with my professional identity and after I made my choice, I wondered what would become. I was lost, confused, and unable to see that I had control and power over my choices, that I could also control my perspective and ultimately my future.
Laurie Marie has a unique knack for helping you uncover your true intentions and then provides the tools and inspiration to guide you to success. She has been such a blessing to me, I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to work with and learn from her. Please, if you are considering working with a life coach, reach out to Laurie Marie, it is a life changing experience! -Dayna W.
"Having my picture taken by Laurie Marie was a fantastic experience. I never had any pictures taken of me before and I was a little nervous. But Laurie Marie made me feel completely comfortable and it was a lot of fun! She was very professional and the pictures were amazing. I would recommend her to anyone!" - Cassie
I first came to Laurie for life coaching. I had this nagging, yearning feeling that I knew I was meant to do more and to follow my dream of one day opening my own spa. I was really struggling with the "how" part of it. What steps do I take, where do I find the time, how do I overcome the overwhelming feelings of self-doubt in a family and community that seemed to be (at the time) unsupportive of self-care and the healing aspects of my spa services.
She and I set up times to Facetime since we are states apart and she helped me, each time, with a different set of tasks. Taking small steps, taking action, moving forward every day/week/month (however long it took me to complete each step) and move in a positive direction for growth. I would set small goals and once I reached them or completed them we came up with new ones. Once I was able to work through the mental hurdles (and they aren't gone - they don't disappear - you just find healthier ways to get through them), I was able to start taking larger steps toward presenting to the public that I was open for business and ready to attract clients with the fitting energy. She helped me figure out how to start blogging, how to create eye-catching social media posts and how to interact with my potential clients. One of the most recent developments has been working on a website together.
In the past I would honestly start to cry and want to hit my computer screen (tech is not a strong suit most of the time), but she helped walk me through it and show me around and I was surprised how much less anger I had and how I actually (gasp) enjoyed the process of designing my own website!
I have basic experience with Photoshop so when I designed my own logo (just text) she took a peek at it and helped me clean it up a tad so I would not have to resize it each time - super helpful because she knows what she is doing when it comes to that, too! A really important part of any website is presenting strong and attractive images. So we took a few moments together and she snapped photos so that I wouldn't have to use dingy phone photos with terrible lighting, lol! Now my website has crisp and clean, beautiful images that show I am a professional and care about the appearance of my website.
Laurie is a one-stop shop when it comes to your complete brand image as well as your mental energy for your business and your life. Through every task, I have relied on her to narrow down issues and create solutions with me. She provides suggestions or tips and guides you to do the work so that you feel empowered and confident in your choices. All the while she is communicating in a loving and compassionate tone, never showing frustration or jumping in to take over a project - which is huge for personal growth.
Would I recommend her? Hands down - a resounding YES! I know that I would not be where I am today with my business and personal life if I didn't have her as a guide and mentor. She has had an enormous impact on my life - always full of joy, beauty, and kindness.
She is a rare gem in a sea of glitter and I promise you, that you will not be unhappy with your choice to work with her toward your goals. Whether it be for business, love, relationships, practicing loving your body - it doesn't matter - work with her and watch the magic that unfolds! xo- Brooke H
