Lauren Lapointe helps coaches get fully booked through smart strategy, intuitive marketing, and soul alignment so you can have the wildly successful online business of your dreams.
She took the leap several years ago to leave the corporate world and her cushy corner office behind to work for herself and hasn’t looked back. She believes that life is too short not to do what you love and she’s on a mission to help coaches share their gifts with the world in a bigger way.
Although she grew up in Canada, she now lives in Florida with her husband and an undisclosed number of cats (and guitars.)

I started off selling textbooks in my dorm room before discovering Amazon. I scaled a 25 million dollar Amazon business selling toys and baby products, but always struggled to hire help. College kids were unreliable and no US adults wanted to work for a 20 year old entrepreneur. One day a friend of mine introduced me to the virtual hiring space and I became addicted.
I set out to build a virtual assistant army, but quickly got frustrated with the poor quality and time commitment it took to hire on Upwork. I set out to build a better marketplace that pre-vetted virtual assistants before they were allowed on the platform, quickly matched them up with clients, had 24/7 support in case the smallest thing went wrong, and a no turnover protection where we covered replacement costs if someone quit.

Band : What jobs to delegate.
How to get fans : Meet new people, appear on podcasts and create new content.
Filling the hat : Try lots of things that don't cost a lot. Stop doing the ones that don't work and double down on the ones that do work.
