Bio Information

I had a long career in advertising, much of it spent in New York, before I came to Charlotte in 2003. But when the Great Recession hit five years later, I was laid off from my advertising agency job here.

No one was going to hire me at age 58. So I had to decide how to reinvent myself. That meant leaving the profession. For about a year, I worked as a professional organizer.

Then in October 2010, more on a whim than anything else, I attended a franchise expo presented by The Entrepreneur’s Source.. There I met a TES coach who took me around the Expo. We talked about my skiills, goals and why I wanted to go into business for myself. He introduced me to a number of Franchisors at the show and we continuted conversations for the next few weeks. After working with him for a month or so, I told him I wanted to do what he was doing.

 So in early 2011, I bought my TES franchise. Since I had to reinvent myself, I can relate to what many of my clients are going through, and I also went through the process of choosing a franchise and how to decide what is a good fit.

I consider myself a coach, even though it is an overused word. I’m not here to give my clients an answer; I am here to guide them through the process. The ultimate end of the journey is to bring the client to that point of clarity. Is being a business owner for them? If the answer is no, that’s OK by me. I am a Plan B for a lot of people, but I can become Plan A.

RP Provo, UT

After 12 years as a corporate executive for a fortune 100 company, I found myself where so many others have found themselves,
"downsized". I discovered Lauren while searching for new opportunities and I have to say, it was the best experience of my working
career. Her help was invaluable in navigating the daunting, and often frustrating, task of evaluating what to do next. She not only simplified the
tasks, but actually made it enjoyable and even exciting. I am now ready to launch my own business and have never been more excited about my future. I can't thank Lauren enough for all of her support and assistance in this process. Thank you
so much for your knowledge, support and professionalism!
