Hi, I’m Lara
MINDSET COACH | RETREAT HOST | AUTHOR | PIE JUDGE | MUM
Let’s make your vision a reality…
I’m Lara Young and I love helping mamas just like you to create profitable, successful businesses on their own terms.
Together we’ll pave the way for your success using tried and tested mindset, planning, accountability and implementation tools that work for my clients time and again to achieve their goals.
You’ll build a business that is in line with who you are – that lights you up – and enables you the freedom to spend time with the people who mean most to you. To be at the school gate, the soccer game, the school assembly.
You’ll ditch the excuses – the reasons why you can’t – and move forwards with purpose, inspired action and ease as you accomplish your goal of a profitable business that works for you and your family.
You’ll harness the skills, experience and knowledge you gained in your corporate role(s) and transform them into a business that you love. A business that utilises all of the amazing talents and passions you have to share with the world.
One that gives you the intellectual stimulation, challenge and recognition that you crave. One that grows as your family does.
You’ll find balance between success in what you do and the freedom to be all that you are.
I can assure you that whatever you dream of, it can happen.
I know, because I’ve done it myself.
My own life has been a work in progress and an amazing, surprising, heart-stopping ride.
I spent 25 years in the corporate world, latterly as “global head” of this and that.
I was well-paid, successful, travelling the world. I had a flat in London and the freedom to do as I pleased.
But I wasn’t really happy.
Other sides of me were clawing to get to the surface.
The entrepreneur. The mother. The mentor.
I knew that if I didn’t make my dreams happen, I would never truly be happy.
So I began to develop and put into practice my own toolkits for life and business design. Yes, life AND business – because when you love what you do, your business becomes an integral part of your life – and of who you are.
You are a role-model to your children.
You’re a mystery to your parents who don’t really ‘get’ what you do.
You’re a source of pride for your partner.
You’re a shining “I don’t know how she does it” light to your friends.
My dreams began to become a reality when I made conscious and incremental changes every day. I started small with things like saying “no” when I didn’t want to do something and “yes” when I did. I practiced listening to my heart and my intuition.
I gained additional qualifications in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy and Hypnosis. Plus EFT and the Law of Attraction.
I paid close attention to what worked in the corporate world and in my business consultancy practice, adding them to my Build Your Business toolkit – a unique bundle of secret-weapon strategies and actions for growth.
And against all odds, I was able to adopt my two beautiful baby daughters as a single mother.
I left behind my corporate role to start a global business consultancy and to run inspiring retreats throughout the UK and Europe. I established a 5 star retreat venue in the English countryside. Then, with the freedom to work from anywhere in the world, I picked up my family and moved beside the beach in Australia for a 12 month sabbatical.
Did people tell me I couldn’t achieve the things I craved for myself?
YES, they did.
Did I listen to their fears instead of my own desires?
You have a choice,
just like I did and
just like the extraordinary women
I’ve coached around the world.
You know you’re on the cusp of building something brilliant.
With the right support, accountability and mentor by your side, you CAN achieve anything.
