Course Description

We typically associate with folks of the same socio-economic circles.

Studies show that your salary and income are typically within 20% of the group of people you regularly hang around with.

So, if you want to jump to a different salary or professional level, we may need to change who we hang around with.If you want to leap to the next professional rung, we may want to find ways to network with people of that next desired level.In other words, surround ourselves with the success we want to achieve. You can use social media sights like LinkedIn.com to jump those hurdles.

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.

Hi, my name is Laura Rose. I am a speaker and author. My background is in time and project management.

I help busy professionals and entrepreneurs create effective systems so that they can comfortably delegate to others, be more profitable and have time to enjoy life even if they don’t have time to learn new technology or train their staff. I have a knack for taking big ideas and converting them into smart, sound, and actionable ideas.

At the end of the day, I give people peace of mind.

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.

Warmly,
Laura Rose , CTACC
Certified Business and Personal Life Coach
