THE LK
STANDS FOR 

LAURA KELLY.

I REALLY WANTED TO BE A REAL HOUSEWIVES VILLAIN, BUT I FOUND OUT I WAS BETTER AS A BUSINESS COACH.

YOU MIGHT
KNOW ME AS:

THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER FOR HAPPY PEOPLE

(OR THAT GIRL WHO ACCIDENTALLY SOLD 406 PHOTO SHOOTS ON GROUPON BACK IN 2011 AND LIVED TO TELL THE TALE...)

tHREE years ago I asked myself one very important question:

I think you know where this is going...

The answer was a big fat NO! Although I'm wildly passionate about my business as a wedding photographer, my 50s (and truthfully, even my 40s) look very different than bopping from venue to venue every Saturday all Summer long, popping more Veuve than one woman can possibly hope to drink.

It seemed like a simple realization, but that's far from the truth. Knowing that I wouldn't be working as a professional photographer into the second half of my life left me completely rudderless. 

There was going to be a Career Two... but what was it? I couldn't get that term off my mind; career two... career two...

And while I didn't know any of the pieces of the puzzle of what that second act would hold, I knew that I could start putting in the work NOW, so that I'd be ready to take the reigns as soon as I felt it was the right time to hang up my camera. 

One year later, the podcast was born. I started documenting my journey of transitioning my business. I knew I was laying the foundation for my next chapter, even though I didn't have a single clue about what that chapter would hold. 

One year later, something clicked. 

And that something is why you're here in this very moment.

DO I STILL WANT TO BE SHOOTING WEDDINGS WHEN I'M 50?

    THE 3-MONTH COACHING PROGRAM

    LEARN MORE

    To know where you’re going you need to know why. 

    To create a life that fills your tank to the brim, you must be connected to your big picture vision.
     
    And to feel content in your success, you need to be able to define it.

    We will work together over the next 3 months to define what success means for you. Together we’ll gain clarity about what you offer, how to promote it, how to talk about it, and how to feel in alignment with your purpose.

    These strategies and tools will help you step into confidence in your business, so that you can make decisions that align with your values. Remember, your personal development IS your business development.

    thank you!

    "I don't think I even really knew what I was hoping to get out of it but it's like you knew after our first call together...

    I feel like I am miles ahead of where I was when I started, but it wasn't because of a huge break through.

    It wasn't like you had “the answer” waiting for me, it was like you were guiding me along my own path. Which if you think about it, that's how a program really should be!

    I am SO grateful to have found you and that we get to keep working together!!!"

    IT WAS A MILLION TINY BREAKTHROUGHS THAT SNOWBALLED AND CAUSED SO MUCH MOMENTUM.

    IT'S PRECIOUS REAL ESTATE IN THOSE HEADPHONES, BABY

    (AND I TAKE THAT REALLY SERIOUSLY...)

    this is not

    At some point I just got really sick of the fluff. I wished there was a way to listen to inspiring content without a bunch of fake enthusiasm and "extra" stuff. Long story short, I decided to make it happen.

    I became obsessed with that feeling that hits me after a particularly inspiring coffee date with one of my likeminded girlfriends. I knew that I could replicate that feeling for my listeners, and the podcast was born.

    It's called "You Might Not Like It" because that was my greatest fear -- that I would create this thing and that no one would listen. But that's the funny thing about fear, as soon as you put a name to it, it loses its power.

    That name reminds me every single day to go after the things I want so deeply, unabashedly, and without fear. It reminds me that I'm the one who holds the power here.
