Starting your own business can be exciting and energizing, but it can also feel isolating—especially if you don’t have a business partner. As you face questions like: “how do I attract more customers?” or “how do I ensure my customers have a positive experience?” it is valuable to hear outside opinions. When I first learned about the concept of a mastermind group, I knew I had to be a part of one. I consider myself a motivated and ambitious person, but I also realize that I need accountability in order to stay on task. Being a part of a group that met once a week forced me to make my own assignments and stick to them. In just a few months I was able to accomplish more than what might have normally taken me a year! Being in the “hot seat” was something like sitting with friends around a cafeteria table and discussing what your next move should be. The group of peers turned out to be an overwhelming resource of information and ideas. They say two heads are better than one…but four heads are better than two! Laurie’s dedication to the mission of the group meetings was truly inspiring. Her ability to facilitate discussions—asking the right questions and steering us away from unproductive tangents—allowed us to get the most out of our time. She really took on our goals as her own, rejoicing with us when we succeeded and consoling us when we were discouraged. Laurie is the best mentor/coach a new or growing business owner could ask for. If you’re serious about your business, I recommend you consider signing up for one of Laurie’s mastermind groups.

Laurie is a generous, and passionate mastermind leader.  She creates a comfortable and supportive environment for sharing of ideas encouraging everyone to reach a higher level of professional and personal success.  I have benefitted from the mastermind by learning strategies to live the life that I want to create and it has been instrumental for me in areas such as goal setting, accountability, community, and the power of collective ideation.  I have learned strategies on how to run a side business in 5 hours a week and the power of setting intentions for the year.  Laurie has a wealth of experience and resources that she brings into each session.  I’d highly recommend joining one of her groups!

I joined one of Laurie’s mastermind groups earlier this year and am miles ahead of where I thought I would be because of it! Being able to connect with a group of like-minded, driven individuals has helped me set the bar higher and achieve more than I could have ever imagined on my own! Joining a mastermind group was one of the best decisions of my life. I am more driven, more productive, and more effective because I have a team of people to brainstorm ideas and goals with. I am so thankful to be a part of a phenomenal group of people who want to reach higher, achieve more, and aspire to grow!

Since joining my mastermind group, I have learned several realistic goal setting techniques which have produced results in my life and business in a very short time! Laurie is very talented. She guides each of us toward a more productive state and keeps us on course and focused.

I had never worked with a one-on-one business coach before. But as I embarked on a new chapter in life of resigning from my job and opening up my own business, I found that I needed extra help to stay motivated, knocking any obstacles out of my way. I was lucky to find Laurie! Laurie is extremely knowledgeable, insightful, efficient and just a dream to work with. Her patience and smart, creative suggestions amazed me. Specifically, she helped me put together my business plan, brand positioning, strategies for promotion and narrow down my target audience. She gave me very specific, useful and creative tools.  In short, Laurie Wann is awesome! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a high quality, effective and efficient business coach and mentor.

When I first started working with Laurie, my business was a mess. I was so scattered, trying to do a million things at once and succeeding in none of them! Laurie began by teaching me “clarity”. What was my main passion, what did I really want my business to look like and what were my challenges? When that became clear, we worked on focus. Every week she would give me 3 things to work on for my “homework” and I did it eagerly! Learning so much from each task!!! (I’m also loving what she knows about using the internet for business! I feel like I’m getting “with it”) Each week, my business and what I needed to do to achieve my full potential, became clearer and clearer. I became organized, (that in itself was huge) and developed long term and short term goals. Laurie gave me the tools to achieve those goals. Periodically she would send me information and articles that really pertained to my specific needs. (I’d call that going above and beyond!) I learned, I planned, I practiced and I focused. Today my business looks so much different than it did 6 weeks ago and I have Laurie to thank for that.  The best part… is that it’s working!!!

Laurie is an awesome business mentor! When I first spoke to her I only had an idea about what I wanted to achieve. I knew what business I wanted to start – but I wasn’t sure how to get started. Each time Laurie and I talked, she asked great questions that made think through the details. She gave me homework every week to clarify my vision, my ideal target audience, my services and my pricing, my marketing and more. As we worked together, I started to really own the role of being my own boss. I became stronger and more confident in my decision to launch my business, and thanks to Laurie, now I have a full business plan and detailed action steps. I have made my 1st investment into my own business and will be up and running in no time. Laurie is very knowledgeable, thorough and organized. She is creative and strategic, and while she will definitely keep you on your toes, she is friendly and down –to- earth and will prepare you for anything!
