Hi! I’m Laurie Morin. Law professor, social activist, entrepreneur, coach, and change-maker. I lead workshops and retreats all over the world where people come together to reconnect with their passions and design a fulfilling life and career. I am passionate about transformation and travel.
I have been on a path to personal and spiritual development since I was in college. First, I ran off to live in a commune. Then I joined an ashram and gave away all my worldly possessions. Finally, I settled down into a career as a law professor, but I never gave up seeking.
Recently I had a crisis of the soul that led me to create this new business. Now I share my passion for travel and transformation by leading retreats in in some of the most beautiful spiritual sites around the world. I love sharing my knowledge and experience and inspiring others to grow and change.
What sets me apart from other coaches is that I have experienced the same fears, frustrations and failures that you have. I have pursued my career from all sides of the work world — as an entrepreneur, an employer, an employee, and a volunteer. The common thread has been my passion for helping others and making a difference.
Throughout my 30+ years as a lawyer and law professor, I have helped dozens of artists, budding entrepreneurs, and nonprofit organizations turn their creativity into thriving businesses. One of my great loves is my work as a volunteer mentor with a nonprofit organization that empowers low-income and immigrant women to become economically independent through entrepreneurship.
I am also a serial entrepreneur myself. While some of my businesses have thrived, others have failed. I have learned what works (and what doesn’t) when creating a purpose-driven business, and I have distilled that knowledge into proven business models and strategies that you can adopt in designing your own business or passion project.
A few years ago, I accepted a promotion that I knew in my heart was wrong for me, and I stayed stuck in that place for more than four years. Even though everyone told me that they needed me and I was the right person for the job, I didn’t feel that I was using my real talents or making a difference in the world. It made me realize how far off my true path I’d gone.
Finally, I had to face the ultimate question: Should I stay or should I go? With the help of some terrific coaches, I was able to reinvent my career to be more in alignment with my new vision of the contribution I wanted to make to the world. That was what led me to start my new career as a life and career coach and retreat leader.
Over the years, all of my students and clients have had something in common – a dream of creating something bigger than themselves, something that would have a positive impact on their lives, their families and their communities.
I am a certified Life Coach, certified Passion Test and Passion Project Facilitator, and certified Oracle Card Reader, among other things. Most of what I have to share comes from wisdom, hard won over the course of an interesting and adventurous life. If my story resonates with you, I would love to have you join us on this journey.
