Laurie is by far not the “natural born success story.” She comes from a humble beginning, being the last out of 6 children from a small suburb in Chicago. She was blessed to have two wonderful parents that gave her tremendous love and a safe home to live in.
Although Laurie got a business degree from Eastern Illinois University, in which she bartended for 4 years to obtain, it wasn’t until she moved to California did her real education start. That’s where the story begins…
In 1988, against her parent’s advice, Laurie decided to pack up her 73 Cougar and move to California to make her dreams come true. Within 10 days of being there she called a newspaper ad that read “DRIVE A MERCEDES”. After looking at her 73 Cougar out the window a few times she decided to call the ad. That’s when she was introduced to entrepreneurship thru network marketing but more importantly the first of many mentors in her life. The exact day was 8/8/88.
Laurie certainly had a rough start, but was encouraged by her dear friend Gary to attend a training seminar to learn how to create a success business. She learned about personal development for the first time and that..
Although Laurie was so blessed to start living the American dream in her twenties, buying one of her first of 4 homes in Del Mar California, driving sport cars and vacationing all over the world, what she is most proud of in her life is giving back. Laurie was blessed to give back to the family that gave her love and support and also to endless individuals and charities that have not been as fortunate.
Laurie eventually surprised her Dad with his dream car, a convertible Mercedes and retired him on a gorgeous 43-foot Hatteras Motor Yacht in Florida.
Laurie has been involved with numerous charities, such as American Lung Association, Special Olympics, Ted Danson’s American Ocean Campaign, Dennis Weaver’s Institute for Ecolonomics, Dare Organization, Eco Organization, Nurses for Newborns and Whales Alive Celebrity Event with Lloyd Bridges family. Laurie has been involved with Big Brother Bis Sis since 2006, and most recently was on the Board of this amazing program.
Laurie has a level of passion that is extraordinary to help people accomplish so much more than they ever dreamed possible. Laurie feels so blessed to have God, her family, friends, mentors, and companies in her life. She is very aware that without every one of those components; she would not be who she is today. Laurie’s been so blessed by God; she wants to commit her life to share with others the true keys to success and ways to achieve total freedom in all areas of life, not just financially but spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Laurie’s favorite verse from the Bible is:
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
