"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.

Here's the client letter that just made me cry:
Hi Laurie! It's been a couple months since we had our chat, and I just wanted to send you a (long) note and tell you how much of an impact just our one conversation had on me. It's spurred quite the change in my life and I finally feel like I have a focus and a clear direction.
When we spoke you encouraged me to try shifting my perspective to put music first above everything else. You made it sound super doable and realistic, almost like "Why wouldn't I? What's stopping me?" And to be totally honest, that was a game changer. Once we hung up, it was clearer than ever that I should finally let myself pursue the thing I am most passionate about. I made a decision to focus on making music my career as an artist and songwriter, and since then, it's like all of these doors have been opening for me. It's honestly spooky how just shifting my perspective made some awesome things happen almost immediately.
I quit my little side hustle, which was perfect timing because it was hitting a wall and required either I invest a bunch more money and time into it or let it go. My business partner was incredibly supportive and said she was proud that I finally deciding to choose music. In fact...every person I told about you and this newfound decision had the exact same response. Including MY DAD. Which was shocking. He said he was happy that I was finally giving myself the opportunity to do what I love. Whaaaaat?! Everyone's reassurance was amazing.
I am still at my day job, which is whatever, but its way more manageable mentally than it was before. I don't feel the same degree of pressure and anxiety because I know this place is temporary for me, and that I will eventually phase it out.
LONG STORY SHORT, I want to send you a sincere thank you. I would 100% still be a confused mess if it wasn't for our conversation. You made me question things I hadn't and inspired me to make the decision and see what happened. I can't stress enough how that was really never an option for me. Like, ever. I always assumed music wasn't realistic or couldn't be my job, and now I'm figuring out ways to make that happen that I never even considered.
I hope you continue helping people like me who think or act like they've got it all figured out, but really are struggling deeply inside. I'm sorry this message is sooo long, but I wanted you to know your impact.
