Laura West, the founder of Joyful Business, is a business coach, author of several books and a sought-after speaker who is passionate about creativity in business.
Laura has helped thousands of entrepreneurs embrace creative marketing strategies and develop signature products and programmes to successfully share their story with a broader audience.
She is also a visual graphic facilitator, using hand-drawn visual mural and info-doodles in webinars and keynote speeches to educate and inspire.
Laura joins me today to discuss why she left her prestigious corporate role in marketing to become an entrepreneur and why she loves coaching creative clients who want to change the world with their work.
She shares the secrets of being in tune with your energy and how finding your ‘flow-mentum’ helps you find your authentic marketing style while enjoying that part of your business.
Laura also shares the tools she uses to stay productive, and why she decided to create her own printable planner, the Joyful Business Planner.
