Laura Brandenburg started her first business in 2008 and experimented with consulting, personal coaching, training, and writing. In 2011, shortly after her first daughter was born at a local birth center, she landed on a mix of digital product offerings that have enabled her to build a 6-figure business while working part-time from home, so she could spend a lot of time with her now two young daughters (the second was born at home).
Now, Laura is focused on empowering women to build momstyle businesses – online ventures that nourish their creative spirits, generate significant revenue, and allow them the flexibility to be the moms they want to be.
