"Working with Laurie has been a blessing and a gift. She has the ability to bring out my innermost thoughts and personal goals. Through her skilled guidance, I'm able to apply my strength and be aware of my weaknesses with kindness and balance. Laurie is an asset not only to my life but also to those around her. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to make a difference in their life."
-Jeanne Candler, Interior designer
"If you have the opportunity to work with Laurie Shiers - seize the opportunity! I was able to leave our first session with both a really practical and on-point to-do list and, in equal measure, a really practical and beyond on-point to-don’t list. And until my first session with Laurie, I knew only that the “to-don’ts” were wrecking me emotionally, spiritually and creatively. I did not, however, know that they were ideas and concepts I should kill off. I had made myself believe these career/life path ideas were adult, grown-up options (albeit, options that felt anything but good) and through Laurie and the unique way she works, I was able to identify them for what they really were… major “to-don’ts.”
I am so excited by what I’ve already taken away from working with Laurie and even more excited for the discovery, clearing and deeper understanding yet to come. "
- Matt Boren, author and actor
"Laurie helps me figure out what to let go of, and what to pursue. She helps me figure out what is in my way, and how I can work around it or clear it out. Laurie is helping me focus on the things I care about, and get to a new place. It’s a combo of therapy, friendship, and business plans.”
- Brie Childers, photographer
"After working with Laurie Shiers, my career finally feels like it's really coming together. This was the one missing piece that was causing me so much grief! Laurie has been able to guide me into action with her suggestions. It's been a transformative process and I am seeing clear results. Thank you Laurie!
I now feel excited about my future and great things are happening daily!"
-Michael Dubin, Musician/Martial Artist
"I was in the right place at the right time when I first learned about Laurie Shiers. I was hooked the minute that I met Laurie. Laurie has a way about her that pushes you to think and live outside of your comfort zone. She has helped me grow so much in my career and most importantly myself. If you are looking for a Coach that knows how to motivate, inspire, and hit those buttons that you know need to be touched, then Laurie Shiers is your girl!"
-Ilyse Baker, Choreographer/Dancer
"I have known Laurie Shiers for almost 20 years. She's always been an incredibly supportive friend, gently nudging me to focus on the things that are important to me. This past year has been life changing for me personally and professionally and it was a natural instinct to ask her for help. She guided me through some dark moments, sagging confidence, and fear of following my dream. Laurie's ability to listen to my babbling, clarify my thoughts and ask the questions questions that hit the nail on the head was uncanny, allowing me to shift my perspective. I am now fully engrossed in working towards my next goal and am planning a future I never could have imagined. I will be forever grateful for having her in my life as a friend and a coach!"
-Ruth Golden, Documentarian
"When I thought of a “life coach” I thought it was someone who helps organize your life, come up with goals and hold you accountable for them. With this definition in mind, I was eager to start. I love me some lists and especially checking things off!!! However, Laurie figured me out pretty darn quickly and she said two words that changed my life.. “SLOW DOWN” and then she said “like wayyyy down”. In that moment i began to cry. I cried because she was right. I cried because someone finally gave me permission to slow down. Someone SAW me and knew just what I needed to hear. I was doing “more than enough”. I was ENOUGH. I spent my whole life making lists, checking things off and racing to figure it all out. “I’ll love myself eventually” .. “when I get all these things done then maybe I’ll be good enough”. Laurie showed me that my self talk was Not working for me (one of the many lessons I learned from her) and it changed my life.
So how can Laurie help you? She will meet you exactly where you are, even if YOU don’t know where that is and she will help you rise from there . As you are rising from the INSIDE, you will see that your life is changing on the outside too. You are still checking things off a list (phew right?) but in a much healthier way . Keep in mind though that it’s won’t really matter so much anymore because through the whole process you start to believe in yourself and truly honor yourself . At first it’s because Laurie believes in you and well, she’s pretty smart so she must be on to something , but then a shift happens and you truly begin to believe it. This gift is one that you have finally given to yourself and yeah maybe you would have reached this one day but Laurie will help you get there NOW."
