If you want to learn the six and seven figure science to success, significantly increase your revenue, and learn how to successfully build professional relationships, you should be listening to the Sell Without Selling Podcast with my good friend, Stacey O’Byrne.
Hey. Welcome back to another episode of Sell Without Selling. I am your host, Stacey O’Byrne and I believe that learning the art and the science of how to sell without selling is the only way to achieve high six and seven figure success.

[Intro for Guest]
Stacey: Laura, how are you?
Laura: I am good. Thanks for having me today.
Stacey: No, thank you, and I am beyond excited for our guests to hear about you, your journey, and your business. So, how did you get started? I mean, did you just wake up one day and go, “I want to be a career coach.”
Laura: No, no. It’s kind of the evolution of my career. I have worked in a lot of different industries. I worked as a medical biller. I worked in high end window and door sales, higher education, and even as a hostess and server. So, the one common thread to all of my career has been moving up into management and director level positions.
I had my oldest son in 2014. I was running a career center out here where I did similar to what I do now, which is overseeing career coaches, case managers, and helping people with interviews and LinkedIn resumes. But as their manager, and having a newborn son who wasn’t doing that well at daycare, I found myself not giving 100% at either one, and just feeling really unfulfilled for it. So I decided to take a step back, which was really hard for me because I am very driven, and I like working with people. But I took a step back and then in my new mom off time, my friends and former colleagues kept asking me to help with their resumes, or help them prep for interviews.
