Who am I and what is my Story?
Hi! Great to meet you! My Name is Lori Lynn Smith.
I am a mother, daughter, sister, wife, teacher, mentor, project manager, and business owner, but more than that, I am me and I am living life on my own terms! I love to share that journey and inspire you to take your own small steps to create the life and business you love.
I have a few little pieces of paper that say, I am a computer networking specialist, an internet solutions developer and service desk manager. I have studied psychology/social work and business management. I have successfully completed a certification in holistic life coaching and green living coaching. I have written, co-written and published books; I have planned and produced holistic events. I have facilitated master minds groups and coaching groups. These days I am working on my MBA. All you Geminis will understand that I am a polymath, always trying new things.
When I made the decision to change my life 10 years ago, from the whole climbing the corporate ladder to a life of following my passions, I wanted to leave behind the stress of always pleasing others, of doing what other people thought I should do. I decided at that time the only person that had any say in how my life turned out was me. I controlled how happy I wanted to be, I controlled how I lived my life. This was long before the Law of Attraction became popular, but I just knew that I only had to “see” my future that way I wanted it and it would change. That was when my life really started to change and I started to grow into the person I am proud to be today. With many more exciting adventures on the way, I pick them to help me grow and learn.
Everything that I do in my personal and business life is because I am following my personal passions and goals. I always try my best to lead by example with personal integrity, responsibility, and authenticity.
I absolutely KNOW that my purpose here on earth is to teach you! Teach you to find your purpose, your passions and how to create a life that allows you to follow them. To show you that making the choice of following your purpose and passions can be an amazing journey through this earthly experience, it is why we are here after all.

Lori is a passionate and authentic teacher who shares her real-life experiences with genuine integrity!
In her late 20’s, fresh out of college with four small children to feed, Lori turned to a corporate career to save the day. She worked tirelessly to climb the corporate ladder to find that safe spot in middle management, discovering much to her surprise that she was successful.
In her 30’s she discovered she was a burned out, workaholic, perfectionist control freak, with no time for family, friends, or herself. Lori took advantage of a shift in management to walk away from it all and begin her search for her true passion and soul’s purpose.

Her journey leads her on an adventure that continues on today, extreme self-care, finding your passion, living your soul’s purpose, creating success strategies, small business online strategies are a few of the topics that Lori is passionate about teaching through her books and websites.
