Helping you thrive in your life, actually.

More Info

There are a lot of voices out there telling you what you're doing wrong.

But the honest truth is that you don't need to be fixed. Whether you're single longer than you expected to be, struggling to figure out your career, in an unfulfilling relationship, or your life simply hasn't gone the way you had expected or hoped it would go, it's important to know you haven't done anything wrong.

Life has a funny way of never going according to plan. But instead of focusing on all the things we don't have that we think make up a "normal" life, what if we were able to focus on what we do have? What we have already created. And all the possibilities of where the future could take us.

How would that change your life?

"As soon as I reached out to Laura about coaching, I knew it was a good decision. I contacted Laura while feeling stuck in life, not knowing what my next steps should be. She guided me towards realizing what changes I wanted to make and how to go about making them. Laura knew exactly the questions to ask and what discussions to have to get me thinking about my life differently. Through our work together, I have learned so much about myself and made changes that will have a big impact. Laura is patient, kind, genuine, and intelligent. She understood me right away and I am in such a better place now, thanks to her guidance."

-Julie Brichta, Chicago


It's entirely possible! Sometimes you just need a little support in order to get there.

If you've ever felt the weight of unmet expectations holding you back, questioned why your life hasn't gone according to plan, or worried that hope and time are running out on your chance for happiness, our one-on-one coaching program is here to help.


Let's Grow Together

How many times have you asked yourself why you aren't where you thought you should be by now? Maybe you were already supposed to be married. Maybe having kids by this age was supposed to be your reality.  Maybe you were already supposed to have your career figured out with that salary you always expected.

Maybe you had a plan.

But life rarely goes according to plan. So, let's come up with a new plan.  A new outlook.  Together.


Hey 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 if we are fortunate enough to start a family I will be at least 41.

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 it finally clicked.  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 years 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.

Change your perspective to change your life.

"After meeting her once, I knew Laura was an extremely special and amazing person. Over the last year, I have learned so much from her. She has been beyond helpful with giving me advice on my career and my personal life. I honestly don’t know where I would be without her guidance. Laura has empowered me to believe in myself and I know she can do the same for you! "
