Laura Jeanne of Laura Jeanne Design not only has an eye for design but she also refurbishes, creates and /or sews pieces that fit her clients’ needs. Her work is absolutely amazing.
Why WOW Loves Laura Jeanne:
Laura’s eye for detail and design is impeccable. But her personality, her commitment to her business, the energy she brings to WOW… even better! During her consultation process, she really listens to what they are looking to accomplish in their spaces and how the space needs to function. She specializes in maximizing the use of what her clients already own and builds a design plan from there. I love this! Not only is this cost effective, it maintains the clients’ identity within their home so it is a true reflection of them.

Thank you to Jenny in New Jersey who sent in the following question:
Michelle, you always talk about Dan Kennedy and Steve Chandler, but you’ve talked about them for years. J Do you have anyone NEW influencing your business?
Hey Jenny! The answer is yes. While Dan Kennedy’s “GKIC” continues to be a mainstay of content, inspiration and guidance for me, I do have NEW “influencers.” Thanks for asking.
First, I want to give a shout out to Cheryl Tan and Ramona Rice for pointing me towards podcasting as a source of business inspiration and guidance. (You may just see ME getting into podcasting soon!) Okay, here are the influencers I’m ALSO studying right now… in addition to Dan and Steve, of course.
My Mister used to hate my business. Passionately. And it was really — mainly — all my fault. For anyone who is wondering how to get their spouse onboard with their business dreams, this post –documenting how I royally screwed this up — will help. But first, my story… because many have asked about it. Quick note: He’s fully on board now. His NOT being on board was just due to who he was / is and how I was presenting this notion of entrepreneurship to him. Please understand that to him, back then, it was a completely ROGUE idea. So, no hate mail to the Mister, please. =)
In the beginning, before I really thought of myself as a business owner, I’d describe Chris as ambivalent towards my business. … Continue reading →
Our sponsors continue to humble the members of WOW with their generosity. For our May meeting, I had to drive our gifts to the hotel in the back of my husband’s pick up truck. I would have had to take THREE trips in my Jetta. Today, I want to focus on two sponsors that give us two different “takes” on GIRL POWER.
An amazing testament to initiative, drive, determination and human potential. That’s how I’d describe Ginny’s story, played out in the book, What is Normal? and the screenplay WIN. Ginny’s intention to start this company was to inspire and motivate others to believe in themselves no matter what their circumstance is.
When others come to Ginny for assistance manifesting their projects, she asks questions to find an angle for a cross promoting opportunity. This is a… Continue reading →
I’ve long relied on this one tool for making money. It was the singular tool I used when I launched my “make money from home somehow” journey when my kids were infants. It was the tool I relied on to fill EACH and EVERY event I’ve ever created. It is the tool I am relying on today to fill my Advanced Training for Coaches, Speakers and Experts program. One tool, and its effectiveness has only proven greater over time.
But, this tool is often ignored by business owners and sales people alike. It is ignored in favor of mass marketing, blogging, you tube videos, branding and social media. It is ignored in favor of discussions about demographics, target market and “getting your name out there.”
My own business experience has led me to… Continue reading →
