Premier Business and Leadership Coaching for Professional and Business Services Firms

Are you struggling in your role as a Leader? Do you find yourself frustrated as an Entrepreneur? Are you frustrated by marketing, sales, operations and the administration of your business? You have a dream, but can't quite articulate a clear vision or determine the direction of your career? 


Then, I'm happy you stopped by! I'm Lauren Ashley, Coach and Chief Strategist. I've had a lot of personal experience with what you're going through right now. But, I got through it and now have a wealth of knowledge and information to share with you about the other side!

Being at the helm of any endeavor can be A LOT! Like A LOT a lot! But, I'm here to help you see light at the end of your tunnel and devise a strategy to get you where you really want to go. I understand what you're going through but I can also see where you need to be. My systems are based on a few simple things:

  • Right Mindset
  • Excellent Executable Strategy
  • Seamless Operations and Administration.

Each of these things is imperative for you to achieve the success and sustainability you desire. This is what I help you do.

I've worked for over a decade in financial services and healthcare at some of the most recognized firms in the world. I've had the privilege to work with businesses who were once where you are but found a way through the business maze. I've run businesses of my own helping leaders (managers and entrepreneurs) just like you achieve results, tackle goals, and develop new strategies to take their businesses to the next level. I've held senior management and leadership positions guiding people and systems through complex budget hurdles and resource constraints. I've also failed and learned a lot from those failures. Through it all, I've gained so much and I wouldn't change any of it! Without it, I wouldn't be able to do what I love to do---help professionals like you!

So whether you're considering a new business idea, launching a business and are trying to get your bearings, trying to develop a leadership philosophy and style that fits who you are, or balance the competing forces of work and life, I've got you!

Work With me

I’ve been around the block a time or two. I’ve worked with all kinds of businesses. I've worked for and studied a plethora of different leaders. Small single entrepreneur start-ups, large Fortune 500 companies, faith-based organizations, philanthropic not-for-profit agencies, and mid-size multi-million dollar firms. In addition to that, I’ve lived a little. I’ve had to overcome obstacles that many haven’t been able to beat.  All of that knowledge, expertise, and wisdom I’m sharing with YOU. You get to dive into my brain and pull from the experiences I’ve had and information I’ve acquired to become the success you aspire to be. How great is that for you?  If you're looking to shift your mindset and want to improve your leadership skills book a session now.

You can download copies of ebooks, workbooks and worksheets, and other resource tools to help you develop your leadership skills and build your business.

Everyone needs help, and we all need guidance in the pursuit of our goals. Even the most experienced and successful people, utilize coaches, advisors, and mentors to help them reach higher levels.
