Section 1: Introduction
Purpose of this class
1 page

Acknowledgement 1 - if you don’t know what your goals or timeframes for those goals – you can not effectively determine if you are not progressing fast enough or not. If you don’t know if you are not progressing fast enough, then you don’t know if you need to change your strategy

It is for this reason that I like to start of with Goal Setting.

Download this initial questionaire, from the supplementary material section, to get started with your goal setting exercise.

Section 2: Finding Time to Network

If the idea of “networking” triggers a negative reaction, then let’s use another word. Let’s use “building relationships”. That’s what networking really it.Networking is connecting with others with a specific purpose. You are essentially creating strategic partners in your shared success.


Just a quick break with some Networking Cartoons. Enjoy.


Let's follow three different professionals to see how they find time to network:

1) Sarah - interior designer and photographer

2) Sophia - a boutique owner

3) John - mold and restoration expert


This worksheet ties all the concepts together in a questionnaire and worksheet. Download the worksheet provided in the supplementary material section.

Personal note from Laura:

Thank you for spending this time to learn more about me and my clients.

My clients and potential clients are, like you, all doing well.But sometimes we want more from life.We feel that these challenging economic times prohibit us from creating the life we were meant to live.

When we integrate all that we are into what we do, we are free from doubt. We are at our best because we are working through inspiration. But it's difficult to follow one's passion, if we don't know what inspires us. Or we can't find the time.

I use my corporate project management, people management and client advocacy background to help my clients identify and tap into what excites and delights them. I help my clients identify, focus and hold onto their dreams. My clients find that by incorporating their passions into their every day, their lives become fuller, more joyous and prosperous. My clients and I use this collaborative relationship, to help define creative and practical approaches to continually and eagerly move forward.

My business is growing quickly through referrals.Please keep me in mind when talking with friends and associates.Once your friends experience this for themselves they will understand the value of coaching.With this in mind, I would like to offer you and your friends the gift of two free sample sessions.
