Read About Other Creative Women Entrepreneurs Who I’ve
Worked With to Claim their Passion and Step Into Their
Personal Brand, Create Passion Projects and More:
I had the good fortune to attend Laura’s masterful inaugural Passion Project workshop, and was simply amazed at the elegant simplicity of her process, a hands-on system that enables you choose your next project based on her special combination of ‘heart plus head’ factors, and that will launch your next product, event or service offering into the stratosphere!”
Laura is an amazing coach, facilitator, and creative leader! I first met Laura when she co-facilitated Ellen Britt’s Pink Coattails Mastermind Retreat last spring. While we worked on our businesses and mapped out our plans for the year, Laura helped us continue the process in a fun and joyful way. We created our own art journals with paints, stencils, markers, magazines and more. After intense thought, it freed us up to be more creative in our planning and enjoy ourselves!
I recently joined Laura’s new 30-Day Passion Project Facilitator Program. She offers a behind the scenes, step-by-step guide to expanding on her powerful, proven program, so we can make it our own. This works beautifully for me, since I am coaching Highly Sensitive Women to find and follow their passion. I have the templates I need to customize this 30-Day program for my own clients—and it’s such a fun process!
I have found Laura to be an insightful and compassionate coach. She knows where to challenge me when I’m holding back and encourages me to dig deeper to gently move me out of my comfort zone. I have shifted my perspective and discovered an approach to my business and my life that serves me and my clients well. We recently came together again at another Mastermind Retreat. I was able to open up to the group in a way that I had not been able to previously. I had been guided by Laura before I arrived to step into my strengths as a Highly Sensitive Woman and share my vulnerability. The results were amazing for me! I was present in a much more powerful way.
Laura’s exercises and creative processes break up and blend together our creative thought process in a well-paced, yet visionary way. We each came away with our passions on fire and our motivation to take action ignited. She is an extraordinary and inspirational coach!
Thank you, Laura!
Laura West is my business coach and the author of "The Joyful Business Guide". I have worked with her for the past 2 years with amazing success on every level. She has transformed my business and my life.
Basically, Laura helped me get my "mojo" back, and I am in love with my business again. And, consequently, all aspects of my life have improved as well.
Laura has a combination of rare qualities: genius (coaching is her calling and it shows), grace (she has a calmness that I aspire to), growth (she keeps getting better and better) and generosity (she shares her knowledge and resources).
2009 is scheduled to be my biggest year in the history of my 10 year business! Thank you!
During the 30-Day Passion Project, I really got that I can approach this particular project day by day and that it will unfold beautifully and reach those it is intended to reach -- without my striving or reaching any particular benchmarks. I was continually surprised that what unfolded was not necessarily what I had hope for or imagined at the outset. I had opportunities to go deeper, connect with others and explore my passion project on my own that I had not anticipated. I loved being able to participate at my own level and pace.
I learned that there are lulls and unexpected waves, and that something IS happening even when I think nothing is happening 🙂
I loved witnessing the birth of so many different gifts into the world. It felt like when you get to be there in the delivery room for a time and see the making of a miracle, not knowing for sure where it all will go but knowing that magnificence of the moment and all the infinite possibility held within it.
If you're considering a Passion Project, you don't have to have it all figured out. It's ok just to be with something and see where it goes.
“Since I have been coaching with Laura, I’ve learned to step into my power and confidence to think bigger in my business.
When I begin to stray and lose my energy, she gently reminds me of my joyful business creation, and we course-correct to get back on the path to bring my business dream a reality. After my time together with Laura, I now better understand as an entrepreneur how to incorporate self-care into fueling positive energy to create my vision for the world."
“Laura is really adept at finding your magnificence and reflecting it back to you in such a way as to make you confident that what you have to offer simply must not be withheld from the world. And that you have a sacred responsibility to share it with all those people whose lives your unique gifts will bless!”
“I love it that Laura combines the best of two worlds … she is a super sharp, innovative and an incredibly experienced business and marketing coach, AND she is positive, spiritual and fun to be around! Furthermore, I am coming to be in-person with Laura. What an awesome opportunity!
Here’s what I know… when we trust our intuition and are aligned with it, magic happens and the money starts to flow more readily. I am expecting lots of connecting with other heart-centered women business goddesses too!”
Laura West is an Amazing Coach, and I feel so fortunate to be working with her. By gently nudging me to stretch myself, she calls me forth to stand in my power. She cheers me on and acknowledges me when I take a bold and courageous step to move forward in my life.
Laura has the ability to get to the heart of the matter or the real issue quickly, and I appreciate that. She is insightful, supportive, creative, and she really knows marketing. It's a joy to be working with Laura and I am so grateful to have her on my team.
"I was sitting with a Passion Project for quite some time (going nowhere – something I can be very good at) before deciding to work with Laura. I met her in 2010 and remembered the passion she brought to the conversations we had at that time. Passion and creativity are important to me – it tells me a lot about someone and their ability see life from many different angles and colors. After all, getting business done isn’t a black & white process nor does it always follow a straight line.
I knew I needed a coach who could follow where my creativity and passion took me since I am a Simple Girl with complicated thoughtsTM. Laura understood “Mari speak” even when I didn’t, introducing me to baby steps that would lessen the overwhelm of what is needed to really get going on a Passion Project, and can make things, including my thoughts, more complicated.
Clarity shows up sometimes in ways not anticipated. Laura gets that, guiding you as you start to see that clarity, bringing an approach to moving forward that is deceptively simple in its creativity, joyful in its execution. She keeps me grounded so I can safely sort all the creative possibilities that exist to move my business forward.
Thank you, Laura, for being in my reality."
"Laura is a highly creative (not to mention JOYFUL) entrepreneur. Her expertise in drawing out short and long term goals and making them visual is priceless! Not your "same ole, same ole" goal setter - Laura makes goal setting (and accomplishing) seem like a trip to Disneyland!"
"Working with Laura West assisted me in breaking the mold of traditional marketing. She taught me to market authentically by bringing my authentic self into my business. These are new times with new energy and women need new methods not formulas. Laura West is a Creative Catalyst and Expert. Working with her will allow you to open up space for your creativity to shine through thus setting you apart in your field."
Every coach needs a coach, and Laura West is the one I turn to for brainstorming, guidance and a big leap. In just 2 hours she helped me shift into my Zone of Genius and rebrand my business. It feels so good to kiss my old business model goodbye and claim a model that is aligned with this stage of life — leading groups and retreats around a life re-imagined. I am so grateful to have Laura in my back pocket as my coach, mentor and inspiration.
Laura West and I first met at an event 5 years ago. I want to say that I would highly recommend working with Laura! I had my own Creative Business Retreat with Laura this past Tuesday. It was the most amazing day of coaching I have ever received! Laura over delivered on everything she promised. I walked in feeling nervous and overwhelmed. I walked out with a step by step, month by month plan specifically made just for my business. Laura does not prepare cookie cutter coaching or business plans. The plan that we developed was my own and no one else’s. I was worried that I was not “creative” enough to have a “creative” business retreat. However, that was not what it was. Laura has an innovative way of using fun, creative techniques to take the anxiety away that can come with working on a business plan. The peace I felt about my business was nothing I have ever felt before! Thank you, Laura! xxoo
Working with Laura West has been transformative for my business, Unique Wellness Studios, and I was excited to share her expertise on a larger scale with our Health and Well Being Council Members.
We pitched the workshop idea to her and she ran with it. Every detail was perfectly executed from intake to follow up. All my team had to do was show up with a willingness to get creative and think outside the stodgy business planning box.
I personally shifted from resisting putting things down on paper to using my daily planner tool EVERY DAY!!! I now know why I was feeling so scattered all the time, like I could never fully complete tasks.
Additionally, I have begun implementing other tools in the Creative Business Planning Tool Box to begin work on a few different projects I’ve been procrastinating for over a year!
2018 is already my biggest, boldest business year to date!
This is saving UWS’s life! And helping me personally to be more organized and accomplish way more than I was.
What do I love the most about it? IT’S SIMPLE AND CREATIVE!!! Which pretty much guarantees I’ll stick with it.
Laura is authentic, fun and engaging. She is a master of creating a safe space and encouraging you to to be willing to see things through a different, more creative lens.
If you are considering working with Laura, just do it! The money you invest in her and her tools is a game changer!
Working with Laura West to get clear on my message and story is an integral step forward for my business. In the creative thinking and brainstorming session, Laura drew out my own creativity and out-the-box thinking. She asked all the right questions, pulled out the best, and intuitively guided me to the answers I was seeking. I recognized how much I've been limiting myself and as a result am owning my own bigness and authority. Thanks to Laura's insight and guidance, I'm clearer, confident, and excited about my business direction, and moving forward with perspective and action.
I have had the good fortune to work with Laura West for several years on several Passion Projects and in the Creative Business Studio. Whether working on a short-term goal or on a bigger picture such as my business, Laura can hold the energy, vision and focus powerfully. At the same time, she is adept at guiding me like a Sherpa through whatever pitfalls, crags and wrong turns life brings as I climb to the peak of my dreams.
While expertly guiding me, Laura is also a compassionate witness to my process. She has the patience to listen to my frustrations, mental and emotional blocks, and self-judgments without ever losing sight of the work we are doing and why we are doing it. She has an uncanny ability to help me find the gold in my real or imagined limitations so I can learn and grow from them, such as showing me how to turn the healing of my own life struggles and challenges, such as my recovery from addiction, into opportunities to help others heal from theirs.
Laura gently but firmly prods me to embrace my own creative abilities, expand them, and lift them up in service to others. Her creativity is never limited to how to do something, but always includes why to do it, when is the best timing, who it may benefit and what else can be done to follow-up or complete the original goal. For example, she could see that that, contrary to common practice in coaching, if I expanded my niche for a new program I was launching, I could then target several smaller niche markets with the one program, creating many opportunities from one effort. Her thinking is panoramic and detailed at the same time.
Laura is as clear-sighted and visionary as a mythic Greek oracle. When my vision gets distracted by the glitter of fancy, complicated ideas, she sees a way to add punch to my message through simplicity. When I get sheepish about my message, and think small and limited, she deftly guides me to take the risk of being bigger than I thought I could be.
I can’t speak highly enough of Laura, her insights, her creativity, her down-to-Earth practicality and her compassionate and clear-headed wisdom. She has been a great gift for me, my life and my business.
Working with Laura has unlocked so many answers to help me define my business. She is an amazing coach who has so many ways to get to blast through mental and emotional blocks that are holding you back. She's empathetic and gives actionable ideas to help you find the path that's right for you. She is unique, creative and powerful!
Laura is part coach-whisperer, part miracle-worker, part greatness-inspirer, part rule-breaker!"
Laura West is a brilliant, loving, fun, inspiring creative and masterful business coach! My business partner and I hired Laura when launching a new direction for our work. I assumed that we would just need an "accountability partner" and maybe some help with strategic planning. Ha! Of course, we got that but so much more.
If you are a business-owner, you know that running a business is an emotional and spiritual journey as much as it is an intellectual and practical one. Laura has guided us through ALL aspects of this rich journey with such ease and flow. She is very intentional about the space she creates for her clients. Each time we work with Laura, I have the dual experience of relaxing fully into love and safety while also being called forth to meet opportunity and creative self-expression with courage and gusto. It is a joy and an honor to call Laura my coach!
I came to my coaching relationship with Laura as a skeptic. After years with other business coaches, I was bruised and disgusted by the competitive, more-more-more! energy of business development coaching (even as those methods brought me “success”). I was willing to give Laura a try because we have known each other in other contexts, but inside I believed that business coaches are all the same. I was wrong.
Laura is different - creative, intuitive, and spiritual combined with business chops.
As a result of working with Laura, I have an organic relationship with my coaching business. I know what feels aligned with my purpose, values and style, and what doesn’t. I’ve learned to tap into magic and flow in a way that enables me to do the work I love while also structuring a lifestyle I love. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Laura and will use my toolbox of wisdom for many years to come. If you want to feel aligned and excited about your business while also building “success” by many definitions, Laura is the coach for you.
Laura is a master of bringing out the best in yourself. The biggest gift Laura provided me was her ability to bring me back to my passions and desires over and over. Her ability to help me create the right resonance and framework for moving by business forward without all the struggle was a true blessing for me. Having been in a hard charging corporate environment for years, the realization that you can run your own business differently without all the stress and overwhelm was pure wisdom for me. Laura was also instrumental in helping me tap into my creativity, by just being me, not bogged down by the “right” way of doing things, but inspired by your authentic self. I loved working with Laura and came to a new understanding of what it means to own and operate a business based on my personal passions and desires.
When I started working with Laura, a part of me was secretly hoping she’d say I could build my business with referrals only, and that marketing myself was not a necessity! As a communications director and leadership coach, I was used to helping others shine; Laura helped me to see that expanding my own business required ME to step up in a different way.
Laura’s warm, creative approach allowed me to TRUST in the PROCESS. I’m now showing up in my business excited about “being found” and choosing to be visible! This powerful MINDSET shift has been amazing to me. As a result I’m bringing my creativity to the table and it’s been freeing and, well, surprisingly fun!
What also surprised me was how Laura blends her creative brilliance with her workshops and coaching. It simply, works. I had new aha's about my own business vision and leadership as well as enriching connections with others. Oh, and on that note, the community that Laura attracts makes the work infectious!
