Our life’s work often involves the solutions we have found for ourselves.

I didn’t know I was creative. I just knew what I loved to do. I used my mind in the ways I was comfortable with: ever inventing, imagining, dreaming. But I did not know why, or for what. I did not have that person who was able to speak clearly into my natural behaviors and help me understand what creativity was. I entered college with this lack of awareness. And I let others decide my career for me.

Well, as you might imagine, my Business Degree in Accounting did not provide the kind of stimulation my brain craved. Even with my love of numbers. What I did love was business, the Creative Part (now I know). I would create business names, logos and marketing ideas. I dreamed of starting new businesses and selling them. Businesses I did not know about, so I could live in the land of learning.

If I had only seen the clues. But even though one cannot go back, there are no mistakes. It was the way I was meant to travel. And it led me to this work, which is truly my life’s work.

I help some clients find their uniqueness and their ideal business. There is no need to search alone. I help other clients start dream businesses. There is no need to act alone. I help still others become more profitable. There is no need to suffer alone.

A Right Brain Business Coach is a unique brand of coach. As a matter of fact, I don’t know of any other. I combine a Business degree, a Fine Art degree from Art Center, and a Life Coach Certification from Oprah’s Dr. Martha Beck to uncover creative solutions to individual needs. There is no one–size-fits-all: why would two businesses be the same when no two owners are the same? That’s what separates them from the crowd. It’s their advantage. Personal Uniqueness + Personal Expression = Brand. And it is the thing you need to thrive!

I provide support, guidance and know-how. This work is about finding your True Self and the life you were created to do. If you are ready to find clear direction and step out with confidence, let me encourage you. If you would like some help, feel free to call and set up a complimentary coaching session. If I’m not the right coach, I’ll help you find the right one. My deepest wish is that you would find and do that thing that makes your heart sing.

Last August, I joined independent business owner Tanya Edmonds at The Center for Wellbeing. In Tanya’s words: “My vision for The Center for Wellbeing was to create a community sanctuary for wholeness, health, spiritual growth and celebrate beauty in all its forms. When Lori approached me about doing Life/Business Coaching here at the Center, it was a perfect case of serendipity. I was delighted at the prospect of adding this other dimension to services at the Center, and had it in my radar to find someone just like her. In our incredibly over-extended lives, I believe it is becoming more and more essential to seek out people who can coach and support us through our moments of indecision, transition and redirection. An integral component of what it means to be whole, healthy and fulfilled in the 21st century.”

At The Center, I offer private, one-on-one coaching in a serene environment. Sessions are weekly and by the hour. There is also the option to work by telephone, or even on Skype. We will find a way that works best for you and your busy lifestyle! Schedule a complimentary session.

For those who prefer group work, I offer classes. Currently they include The Right Brain Business Plan, for business owners who want to develop a map. Free to Create is a class I offer through the Art Center at Night program. It combines teachings from The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron and Life Coaching tools to open creative possibilities and freedom. To be informed of new classes and dates, please join my mailing list.

Our journeys may differ, but our creative spirits unite us. We carry deep longings to do what we love and share it with the world. To make a difference! Join me weekly right here
