I'm going to let you in on a little secret that some people don't want you to know...
BEING SINGLE ISN'T SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE FIXED.
It's true! There is nothing wrong with you right now. Nothing. But there is an entire industry out there built around telling you what you are doing wrong and then teaching you how to fix it--for a fee. They are profiting off of your vulnerability. By telling you there is a way to find love, or a process, or a step-by-step guide is just reinforcing your belief that you are doing something wrong and need to fix it. But that could not be further from the truth.
"Laura's philosophy on embracing your own timeline has been life changing for me. In my early to mid 30s I wondered why I was still single. I had past relationships not work out and it seemed like everyone around me was getting married or having kids and I was still single. I thought I was the only girl in the world who had been ghosted or had terrible first dates. Then I found Laura's message. For the first time I realized I was not alone. Her personal stories coupled with great inspiration about embracing your life and enjoying your OWN unique path were eye opening. She took the time to get to know me and her advice was profound, insightful and sent me down a much happier and healthier path.
Seriously, I could not find this content anywhere. There is just not enough out there to support the strong, single independent woman, until now. Laura opens up about her own struggles and starts a very critical dialogue that has allowed me to embrace my journey. You can still want to find a husband or have that romantic love in your life but she made me realize I need to embrace all the love in my life. She is very honest because she has been there. She knows that the last thing a single girl needs to hear is-- "oh don't worry, he's out there." She knows how to relate and empower other women. She knows what it is like to walk in a single girls shoes, and her message #OwnYourTimeline is going to change your outlook on life."
-Emily Kumlien, Madison, WI
I HEAR YOU
For years I've been listening. For years I lived it. That feeling of being incomplete, of waiting for your life to really begin. And you don't need me to tell you that IT. IS. HARD.
I've been speaking to groups and working with women individually for years, and I believe there is strength in numbers.
This isn't something you need to get through alone. That's why I've brought this one-on-one work into a group setting.
A safe space. Women only. Community support. Life changing realizations.
IT'S FINALLY HERE
DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
- I'm not where I thought I would be by this time in my life and I have no idea why.
- I am sad, angry, and/or scared about not meeting the expectations I set for my life and it's affecting my day-to-day actions and interactions with others.
- When I really think about being single for the long-term it makes me feel hopeless.
- I am so over my friends and family constantly telling me that this is my year to find a partner! Or not to worry because it will happen!
- I can't handle another holiday gathering where nosy Aunt Gertrude keeps asking why I'm not married and when I plan on getting married.
- I am passionate about my job or career and am proud of how far I've come but I can't help but wonder if it is the reason I am still single.
- I'm so tired of everyone telling me to just get over it and start thinking positive. It's not that simple.
- The only resources I can find for single gals like me are centered around advice on how to find a husband or partner. This just makes me feel like being single is something that needs to be fixed.
- Even though I'm sure there are other single women out there I still feel completely alone and am embarrassed to say how difficult it is to be single.
"Joining Group Coaching, Actually was the best thing I have ever done for myself. Having spent the majority of my twenties and early thirties wondering what was wrong with me for not being in a relationship, Group Coaching, Actually was EXACTLY what has been missing from my life for the past decade.
As a therapist myself, I have been in my own personal therapy for years; however, part of what has been missing for me is others who could relate to my struggles as a (perpetually) single woman. Group Coaching, Actually has given me the gift of connecting with others who truly understand and can relate to me. Thanks to this group, I now have proof that I am not alone, which is unspeakably powerful.
And Laura is absolutely amazing - unbelievably warm, funny, passionate, down-to-earth, knowledgeable, and good at what she does. Thanks to this group, I now understand and believe that there’s nothing wrong with me for being single - and there’s nothing wrong with you, either! I can’t thank Laura enough for changing my life in the most positive of ways - we need more Lauras in this world to spread the word that BEING SINGLE IS NOT SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED!"
-Elizabeth G, New York City
GROUP COACHING IS HERE.
Being single is hard. Not being where you thought you would be or should be at any given age is really hard. And figuring your way out of it alone is even harder.
It took me years to figure out how to accept and appreciate my life path as it is, without comparing it to unrealistic societal norms. But it doesn't have to take you that long!
I learned how to completely change my perspective on what truly matters to begin loving my life as it is, right now! And now I'm sharing those lessons learned with you.
And because we shouldn't always tackle these fears and concerns about the direction our lives have taken alone, we're going to do this together. Are you ready to find that community support and guidance you've been missing?
TEN WEEKS COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE.PUT ME ON THE WAITLIST
"Working with Laura has been a joy and a blessing. I truly feel like I was meant to find her to not only soak up her empowering message, but also the compassionate warmth she holds for every woman she works with. She is so genuine, thoughtful, and truly passionate about breaking down the barriers that keep women from living their best lives.
One of the things I loved most about the Group Coaching, Actually program was that my experience as a single woman was known, honored, and understood. As much as I love my family and friends, most of them are just not equipped to give advice and encouragement as well as someone who has spent time in the trenches. I met an amazing community of women who provided solidarity and support, and I am truly grateful for them.
I’ve always struggled with deep shame around being single and my life’s trajectory, but thanks to this program I no longer feel that way. Now I’m truly proud of my journey and am looking forward to what lies ahead with optimism and a sense of freedom. "
-Stephanie Klein, Minnesota
WHAT YOU'LL GET
Weekly Group Zoom Calls
Each week get together with Laura and the rest of your small group as we work together to reframe our mindsets and take the steps needed to find the happiness we seek right now. We'll dive deep into why we feel the way we feel, what limiting beliefs are holding us back, and how to move past them.
Private Slack Group
Connect with all of the Group Coaching, Actually participants whenever you choose! Share stories, ask for advice, and celebrate your wins--together. We have different channels for different topics and ways to keep in touch with each other. And you'll receive lifetime access so these connections will only grow.
Empathy & Support
We get it. Not being where you thought you should be is hard. That's why we'll never tell you to just get over it. Instead we give you the tools to navigate the challenges and celebrate the wins. And you'll be surrounded by other women who understand what you are experiencing. Together we create action steps to help us move forward.
One of the most common things we heard from Group Coaching, Actually participants is that they don't want the program to end. And we listened! For everyone who has completed the coaching program there is a private membership community they can join called Group Support, Actually. So the support and coaching don't have to end.
"When I saw the instagram post about group coaching, I thought it was a great idea for someone else. I never thought it would be something I would sign up for or much less enjoy. Once reading the description on the website, I said why not.
After 10 weeks of group coaching it has certainly changed my outlook on everything in my life and not just dating. This group had me feel confident, loved, supported and brought my confidence back that I had lost. This experience has changed me in ways that I never imagined it could when I signed up. Now that it is over, I am sure going to miss the group of women that I have bonded with over the 10 weeks.
Laura has the greatest gift of being a great listener, instilling confidence in you and making you feel that where you are in your life is exactly where you should be. After a really rough 2020, this has been the most rewarding experience of my life. Thank you Laura and The Life Actually Company for changing my life in the best ways possible."
-Kate Adriani, Connecticut
OKAY, SO THINGS HAVEN'T GONE QUITE THE WAY YOU EXPECTED.
That is totally and completely okay! But getting our brains and our hearts to understand that isn't so simple. That's why it's so important to ask for a little assist!
And I'm here to give you just that.
Because aimlessly swiping through those dating apps isn't bringing you closer to the peace of mind you know you crave.
Because the amount of pressure you keep putting on yourself and every single first date is enough to stop any healthy relationship from blossoming.
Because the anger and frustration you feel over not having that perfect relationship is actually pushing away some friends and family.
Because you keep telling yourself there just aren't any good partners left out there when you know it can't be true.
Because you owe it to yourself to invest in your own personal happiness, no matter what the future may hold.
Because now is your time to shine.
THE POWER OF TEN
Introducing an ten-week virtual group coaching program returning in winter, 2022, that will arm you with the knowledge, power, support, and tools needed to take control of your life.
That life doesn't begin once you finally find a partner. That life is happening right now.
WHY WASTE ANY MORE TIME NOT LOVING IT?
"First off, thanks so much for creating this program. I've been struggling for years (as in since probably high school, if not middle school), feeling like I was falling behind my friends and peers. When you're in high school, it's not such a huge deal if you're not dating, maybe you're a late bloomer. Then you get into college, and it's more of a struggle, but you still have single friends around you. Once you enter your late 20s to early 30s though, it feels like everyone is paired up, getting married, going on extravagant trips and buying houses thanks to the DINK life, then having babies, all the while leaving you behind. Meanwhile, I'm here trying to just make enough money to support myself and a decent lifestyle in this crazy expensive city I love. I've always put on a brave face and I feel like I hid these struggles well and enjoyed my life overall, but navigating the pandemic on my own really exacerbated everything I was feeling and left me on the precipice of a pretty bad place.
That was my mindset coming into this program. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I think my favorite part was just meeting the other ladies and establishing this community that understands and supports me, but also how we're all really approaching this in different ways. Laura's lessons and the whole group's support has resulted in my having increased confidence and pride in who I am and the life I've built. I have the courage to be my true authentic self now, and I think the biggest ah ha moment was realizing that I need to open up more and let my friends support me vs trying to resolve everything on my own. You can still be a strong independent woman and let people in and ask them for help.
I'm in a better and happier mental state because of this program and I can't thank Laura enough for that."
-Samantha Gallagher, Virginia
MEET YOUR COACH
I've been there, I understand, and I'm here to help.
Hi there, I'm Laura! I spent over a decade and a half as an award-winning TV sports anchor and reporter. I had a great career yet I struggled every day with the things I didn't have.
You see, I was completely single until meeting my now-husband at 35 (and a half). I got married at 38. And after beginning an IVF journey at 40 I'll give birth to my first child at age 42.
It's definitely not the way I drew up my life when I was younger. But now I can't imagine it having gone any other way.
Of course, I didn't always feel that way. I spent my twenties and early thirties making myself miserable about everything I didn't have, while not focusing on any of the amazing things around me. And you know why? Because doing that is freaking hard! And for years I had no idea how to change my way of thinking.
Until years of work finally started to make sense. I discovered ways to focus on what really matters in life. I accepted who I was and who I could become. I was happy. My only wish was that I had figured it out sooner.
I spent so much time not knowing how to accept and love my life as it is, until finally doing the work to change my perspective. And as I began telling my story to more and more women I realized I had something truly valuable to share. With that focus in mind, The Life Actually Company™ was born in 2019 and I've never looked back!
My goal now is to help you avoid those years of doubt I experienced and get busy living and loving your life. Right now.
IMAGINE THIS . . .
Changing the way you view your timeline and accomplishments will truly CHANGE THE WAY YOU VIEW YOUR LIFE.
When you finally give yourself permission to accept who you are and the the path you are on it opens up your world. It's not about finding the love of your life--though you certainly don't need to stop looking--but it's about loving the life you have created.
"Laura’s innate ability to authentically share her own story is a true gift she has chosen to share with her community since she launched The Life Actually Company. As she embarks on group coaching, I could not recommend Laura more highly.
If there was anyone who has written a script for living on one’s own terms, then it is Laura Behnke. She’s navigated changes within her own life with the grace and authenticity that has inspired many women to pursue their own unique path with the support of a community."
-Samantha Vaccaro, Austin, TX

"The Group Coaching, Actually program created an amazing and safe environment that made me feel confident enough to share my story each week. It pushed me out of my comfort zone by forcing me to reflect internally which has allowed me to take a big step toward accepting where I am in my life. The biggest thing I've learned is that we, as women, are capable of achieving our dreams regardless of how big those dreams are and more importantly we deserve to achieve those dreams."
-Melissa Benedetti, Maryland
