What makes Laureen different from many of the coaches out there and what qualifies her to help you reach your dreams?
Firstly, on a bit of a woo-woo note, Laureen has a strong intuitive sense, which helps her determine what is and is not working in someone’s business and how to fix it. She has enormous integrity, warmth and candor and takes on only those clients she is sure she can help. Laureen has over 10 years of experience coaching clients seeking to up-level their businesses and has finally decided to branch out on her own with Luxury Concepts.
It all started when Laureen was 21, she launched the first bridal jewelry company in the US – merchandising jewelry to bridal stores. Today, this market niche is a $300 million industry. She was then recruited by Donna Karan to launch DKNY jewelry and accessories in the early 1990’s. She was the youngest director at Donna Karan.
Several years later, when she started a family, she transitioned her career by getting licensed as an interior decorator to give her flexibility to devote time to her children. Laureen loved working with residential clients to create their dream home.
When the housing market crashed around 2008, Laureen once again reinvented herself as a publisher for Panache Partners – a luxury coffee table book publisher for interior designers, architects, builders and event designers. Her most recent position has been International Marketing Director for Grace Ormonde Wedding Style magazine, opening new markets in New York, Dubai, Paris, Italy and New England.
If she can do this for herself and other companies, imagine what she can do for you!
