launch your biz
You dream of running a successful online business that let’s you live a life of more freedom and flexibility…
But you have no idea how to get all the pieces of the puzzle in the right place.
Getting a website, a ‘brand’, setting up an email list and starting to blog feels utterly overwhelming…
And that’s before you get any clients!
If you wish someone would give you all the right steps to take…and set you off in the right direction to get clients and make money,
You’re in the right place!
I’m Laura, your online business secret weapon!
When I started running my online health coaching business I spent years figuring out how to make it all work. From design to tech and using some of the latest and most effective programmes I taught myself how to create what my business needed to grow – as well as look professional and to feel authentically me.
Alongside the right strategies and support, I created a business that gives me the freedom I need to live a life that feels balanced (around my role as a mother too) and which pays the bills…and then some!
Let me use my design skills, tech knowledge and strategy to get your business off the ground in months instead of years!
How can I help?
I’ve created this programme as a one stop shop of services specifically for new online business owners who want to fast track their success. If you’ve recently finished or will shortly be completing your training certification programme, or otherwise starting out on your business journey, this is the programme for you.
At the end of just a few months I’ll have saved you years of time PLUS you’ll have a strategy and action plan to implement that is designed to make your business generate income from the word go.
Who is this for?
New coaches who mean business. You understand the impact of good design when it comes to helping you stand out, create trust and selling your services. You’re over tatty cheap website options that won’t support you to reach your goals or spending months trying to DIY it. You know your website is your business HQ, your online home and shop front and you need a brand and website that will grow with your business. You also value the role of a mentor in supporting you to get everything you need in place from strong messaging and a marketing plan to the admin systems you need to keep your business ticking.
here’s how we roll
I offer two packages with different levels of service delivered over a different number of months as detailed below:
My 3 month package is perfect for new coaches who know they’ll be focusing just on 1-2-1 coaching for the foreseeable future.
In just 3 months I’ll mentor you around your niche and messaging, marketing plan, cash flow and admin systems and I’ll create your brand and fully responsive website.
I’ll also share full training with you on how to set up an email list to collect emails from potential clients and visitors to your site, as well as training on how to design and create a free gift (usually a PDF guide) to offer those people to encourage them to join your list.
All in all it’s the complete package for any new coach!
*Payment plans available, I can also charge in USD$ if preferred.
My 6 month package is ideal for new coaches who know they’d like to create and offer some kind of digital product or service (such as an ebook, course or membership) within the first 2 years of their business as well as / instead of 1-2-1 coaching.
In 6 months I’ll mentor you around your niche and messaging, marketing plan, cash flow, admin systems and product development plans. I’ll also develop your branding designs and build your fully responsive website.
In addition, I’ll set up your email list for collecting email addresses, set up a series of welcome emails for new sign ups and I’ll design your free gift PDF guide using words and copy we develop together.
I’ll also set up a custom ‘opt in page’ which can be used with Facebook or Instagram advertising to help you grow your email list plus optional extras such as a commerce or multilingual functionality.
*Payment plans available, I can also charge in USD$ if preferred.
my design work portfolio
Why work with Laura?
I offer a unique mix of business mentoring and the design and tech elements required to start a new business.
Unlike working with a web developer or graphic designer who has no clue when it comes to running a coaching business, I know the deal!
I’m also a Mum, and I know what it’s like to want to create that life filled with freedom and flexibility for family life – but one that also brings in the cash and plenty of it!
I also know how lonely and overwhelming it can feel when you’re just starting out with that mountain to climb.
I’ve built my own business from the ground up learning a whole host of skills in the process including website and branding design (in a previous life I studied graphic design and photography!) social media, marketing and more.
I know what it’s like to need to create a business that works for you, let me help you kickstart your new business and your new life!
I have just finished my business coaching programme with Laura and it has been amazing! I had the idea and qualifications for the business I wanted to set up but no clue about where to start!
Laura made things really simple and guided me step by step at every stage, including writing copy for my website, how to create things like opt ins (something I didn’t even know you needed), attracting paying clients, launching offers, marketing myself, using social media effectively and creating profitable income streams.
Every time I had a question (and I had a lot!) Laura was quick to respond and never become frustrated with. She was patient, knowledgeable and super helpful! She also put me at ease and helped me believe in my business and its success when I felt overwhelmed or unconfident.
Thanks to Laura I have a clear plan going forwards of how I want my business to run and how I’m actually going to make it happen! On top of all of this Laura also designed and built my website for me – something I am super proud of and makes me feel professional and confident.
Without Laura’s help I definitely wouldn’t have the business I have today. She really knows her stuff and I would recommend her 100 times over to anyone who wants to be successful in running an online business.Samantha Darby
Since working with Laura my retreats have sold out, numbers to my website are up ten fold and my social media following is increasing rapidly.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommed Laura to anyone who running who is taking the plunge and starting a a business from the heart. I am so happy with the finished product and I will definitely be using Laura again! Paula Lawson
Working with Laura was great as she not only asks great questions to really get you thinking about where you want to take your business, but she is able to offer practical advice and guidance about what works (and what doesn’t!) from her personal experience of setting up her own coaching business.
Laura very quickly ‘got’ what I was all about and we worked collaboratively to create a brand that fitted perfectly with my vision for my business and my niche market. Laura designed my website and created easy, user friendly videos to ensure I’m able to edit and manage my website and mailing lists behind the scenes moving forward.
Laura is absolutely lovely and gives honest and pragmatic feedback to help you get the best outcome, I loved working with Laura and can highly recommend her as a business coach/website designer for anyone who is looking to set up an online coaching business. Helena Schmit

I was thrilled when I was able to work with Laura, as I’ve followed her social media posts and emails for a while (one of the few emails I read without fail!). She made her coaching and website development package absolutely tailored to what I needed, and at an affordable and sensible rate.
Over 3 months we’ve had fortnightly Skype calls which I’ve so looked forward to. I feel focused and have the most direction ever. I also have the most BEAUTIFUL website – it looks just as I always wanted and is something to be forever proud of. Laura listened to everything I threw at her (thank you!) and this has resulted in a clean, minimalist, straight-talking, no-nonsense space for fabulous females to ‘find their warrior’ with me, through fitness.
Initially felt like a scary investment, financially and time-wise – but actually Laura has given me MORE time; instead of giving me extra jobs to do, with her help I have cut back on the aspects of my business that I didn’t need and that weren’t serving me either money-wise, or happiness-wise. I now have bitesized chunks of work to do each 3 months, each month and each week, which I can work towards with absolute conviction that I am now heading in the right direction. And the financial investment was honestly the BEST I’ve made so far.
Go for it ladies, you won’t regret it! Laura, I will really miss our calls, and will no doubt be in touch again next year for some more wonderful pep talks and goal setting! Now to get my game face on for a hugely successful 2018… Luisa Skinner
I have just completed business coaching with Laura and am so delighted that I made the decision to invest.
Before I finished my HCTP course, I was working with Laura to focus my future visions for my business and to identify my ideal client. She helped me to conduct early market research and we then worked together to develop my brand so that it aligned perfectly with my vision
Laura signposted various resources to help me develop my copywriting and was always helpful when I emailed her with a million questions and queries. She provided amazing help and advice around brand design and guided me to collect a wide range of visual inspiration which she then collated and developed into a website that I am unbelievably proud of.
She played a number of roles during our sessions together; professional guide and mentor; calming and supportive friend and awesome website designer and developer!
Her support in all areas was second to none and I have no doubt that were it not for her, I would still be standing on the sidelines, procrastinating and panicking about where to start. Because of Laura I have been able to dive head-first into my new and very exciting business and within the first month of launching my website, I am already working with clients and being asked to speak at public events and workshops.
Thank you Laura. I hope we get the opportunity to work together again in the future!Amy Rom
I haven’t even started my business yet or completed my training, can I still work with you?
Yes of course, this is actually a great time to work with me so you can really get the foundations right and hit the ground running as soon as your graduate from your training programme.
Can you guarantee I’ll make an income through my business if I work with you?
No one can guarantee anything and each person’s journey is different, however I can say with certainty that you’ll have a proven structure and system in place as well as the foundational work needed to attract paying clients and customers into your business using methods that work.
Do you charge any ongoing fees?
No. Other than your domain and hosting (which is not processed by me) there are no ongoing costs. At the end of the package you’ll get a training video showing how you can maintain the site yourself. However some previous clients have found it easier for me to take on the ongoing maintenance for a small monthly charge.
Will I need to invest in anything else besides this programme to get my results?
If you are looking for particular design elements or stock photography to use in your branding then there may be a cost associated with that (around £50 depending on what you need). It also makes sense to get some professional photographs of yourself taken to complement your branding (I’d recommend looking into costs with local photographers, however if that’s hard to budget for it’s totally possible to DIY and I can provide guidance around that). If we are looking to set up a website from scratch there will be domain name and hosting costs associated with that. (around £20-£30 per annum depending on the domain name you are after). Depending on which email system you opt for there may be a small cost associated with this also.
Do you offer a payment plan?
Yes I offer a flexible payment plan contact me for more details.
What currency do you charge in?
I’m happy to take £GBP or $USD
Is the cost of this programme tax deducible?
Absolutely! I’ll supply invoices so the cost of this programme can be accounted as a business expense.
Is this programme only for health and wellbeing coaches?
No, this programme would be suitable for anyone running an online based business such as coaches, mentors and healers.
Can I get certain aspects of the package done with someone else, for example get my branding done with another designer and just work with you on the website and mentoring?
No, while I’m happy to look at bespoke options, I don’t create websites with branding that hasn’t been designed by me.
