Welcome, you're in the right place, friend
I'm Laura - a mum of two in Cambridge, part-time finance director and founder of Managing Myself, where I support high-achieving professional women like you, seeking success without sacrifice.
I'm on a mission to help you live your life on purpose: to develop a fulfilling career while remaining calm and connected to those you love.
Let me show you how.
A massive fist-pump to congratulate you on finding me. You're in the right place, friend!
I'm Laura, a Chartered Accountant (but please don't let that put you off), with over 20 years' experience of management and leadership in the corporate world. I've had a brilliantly successful career, running finance teams, raising millions in funding, and contributing strategically on several boards. I was recognised as one of the Top 50 Female Leaders in the UK Life Science Sector for two years consecutively.
But let's be honest - it's not all been plain sailing.
My biggest struggle has been finding a way to overcome the daily overwhelm of a successful corporate career while doing my best to raise my two wonderful children with the love and attention they deserve. Can you relate?
I've worked hard over the years to find a way to manage myself: to be more purposeful and productive, to create the margin I need for a successful work-life balance and to overcome my limiting beliefs to excel in my career (hence the company name!).
I have invested in training programmes, read countless books, binged on podcasts and worked with several mentors and coaches to uncover the best tactics and strategies to improve my impact at work and at home. And I continue to work on myself in this way, every day.
One of the most valuable lessons I've learned is that I alone have the power to improve my life. We must each take responsibility for managing ourselves, to carve an intentional path to our best future.
My mission is to inspire you and give you the tools and strategies you need to take back control of your days.
You'll learn some simple steps to create more clarity and focus in your life, be more productive and more energised, and find time to share those special everyday moments of magic with your family.
I believe in you. I believe in your capacity to manage yourself and develop new skills.
I believe that you are the expert in your life. That you are resourceful and capable of far more than you've imagined so far.
Remember: Always progress, not perfection. Start small. And take action today.
Are you ready? It's time to jump into your journey of discovery.
I can't wait to celebrate your personal and professional transformation.
