1:1 Coaching with LauraAura – My mission is to help you align and simplify so you feel confident, trust your intuition, and expand in ways that make you feel alive. I combine energy work with grounded, practical action, and together we’ll acknowledge the limiting beliefs and habits that may be holding you back while leaning into who you truly are and how you work most efficiently.



“No matter how many coaches get started, there are always an abundance of clients. And I deeply believe there are always going to be an abundance of clients for you because there’s only one YOU.”

“People love to pay you and so, regardless, at the end of the day, there is somebody out there who will pay your prices. I can promise you, whatever offer you put together, whatever price point you put together, there are people who will pay you for that.”

“It’s really just about showing up and adding service and adding value because the success will come. Your success is inevitable as long as you keep going. But you’ve got to start. You’ve got to get out of your comfort zone. That’s where the magic happens.”

“There’s a difference between talking about your offer and actually asking for the sale and inviting somebody in. And what I see usually close the gap is starting to build more relationships with your audience. Usually, if that sale isn’t being closed, there’s a lack of like-know-trust.”
