Mentoring Reviews:

"Laurel has a way of finding my biggest blocks and helping me release or shift them. I started chatting with Laurel a couple years ago and despite my best efforts to disappear, she found me and dragged me out of my comfort zone to confront what was holding me back with my business.

In the short time we’ve been working together with her as my business mentor I have become aware of a major block and I am working on confronting it.

Laurel has a way of finding and seeing my gift when I can’t, and with her help I am working harder and seeing it more too. Eternally grateful to Laurel for her belief in me and her support."

Girl Power!!! ❤️

“Laurel's mentoring services are excellent. I'm so happy have found a strong woman to mentor me as I transition into this industry. She gives truly personal, tailored advice and has great industry insights. I hired her last year to advise me on adding SEO services to my agency. I immediately implemented her plan, and it has lead to my most profitable quarter yet.
It allowed me to fast-track my new services, and cut straight through the trial-and-error period. I'm happy, and so are my clients. Thank you Laurel!"

"As a business owner do you ever feel you should know, or people assume you know, getting yourself to a point where you feel too embarrassed to ask for help with the fundamentals?

That's exactly where I was. For nine years I've been the owner of a landscape design company, but I hit a point where it just wasn't growing and I wasn't able to bring in the new customers I wanted. My questions revolved around how to take on bigger projects, essentially becoming the project manager. Things like markup with trades, contracts, timeframes, how to present to the client. Not only was I given answers and frameworks on how to apply this knowledge, Laurel gave me so much more. Including assignments, accountability and the most helpful, sharing her own experiences.

Sitting across from someone who isn't afraid to share their own failures and successes made it seem all human. Turns out we all start somewhere. My next chapter in business has started by asking Laurel for her help. I look forward to a continued working relationship with Laurel and continued growth in my company."

"Laurel gets my highest recommendation as a coach and project manager. 

She was very professional, organized and committed to helping me reach my goal of competing an in depth and time consuming portfolio that I was struggling to start on my own. I was in a time crunch as my portfolio was due in a couple of months and I had already used my allotted time extensions. 

Immediately, she took the time understand the details of the portfolio requirements, the time I had left to submit and what needed to be done and drafted a project time line with deliverables and check ins.  She set up weekly check in sessions to ensure I was on track and to provide support and coaching when I felt like I was stuck in the writing process.  She was extremely encouraging, professional and supportive throughout the whole process.   

She brought a different point of view to my portfolio, was my sounding board while I worked through some stumbling blocks, and provided solid and useful feedback on my writing.  Her organizational skills helped me eminency to complete a high quality portfolio that was submitted on time and in the correct format. 

I wished I had worked with Laurel sooner, as I would have saved myself a lot of time, stress and frustration. "
