Desperate To Escape The Corporate Grind But don't know where to start?

I Will Create A Plan With You

image of laura

Hey, I am Laura, and no, I am not a coach.

I don't know about you but I am sick of coaches, mentors and gurus charging thousands to 'empower you', and 'find your best self'.

I am just someone who has done what you want to to do, and can help you make a plan to do it too.


I quit a very well-paid senior management job and got my life back.

I got over burnout and now freelance two days a week, work on this blog and manage my rental properties. I am so much happier :-)

Just a little note here. I am not into sleazy marketing techniques or trying to persuade you that the only way to achieve your dreams is to pay me money.

You could absolutely achieve what you want to, on your own. Sometimes though we just need someone to help us see the wood for the trees.  That doesn't necessarily have to be me. It could be a therapist or a friend or family member.

If you like the blog and think that talking to me would help you kickstart your office escape plan, then book a session (I'd love to help you out). 

If you feel like you can go it alone or get advice elsewhere, just carry on reading the free content on this blog. Do whatever is right for you!

If you have already decided that you definitely want to book a strategy session then you can click the button below and get your session booked in! It's £50 (approximately $64) for one hour.

If you want a bit more information before you decide, you can either read on or send me an email at hello@iwantmylifebackproject.com and I'll answer any questions you might have.

why Should you choose me?

I don't 'manifest stuff' or believe the universe owes me anything. I like practical, realistic and do-able plans that lead to action.

I climbed the corporate ladder in retail merchandise planning until I reached the position of Head of Merchandise Planning for Menswear.

I was in charge of multi-million pound budgets and forecasting future sales and product buys.

I've also always been really good with my own money and have been filling in a monthly budget spreadsheet since 2007 to track and control my finances.

So, while I was grinding away in corporate, I started to invest on the side, in rental properties and stocks and shares.

I also tried to set up a business among everything else.

*Head explodes*

Finally, I couldn't take the stress and pressure of my job anymore, I knew I wanted to start a business but realised I couldn't do both at the same time.

So I saved up a years worth of expenses, and quit.

It took a long time to get over the burnout and find a work/like balance I was comfortable with.

Now I manage my rental properties, freelance two days a week as a retail merchandise planner and run I Want My Life Back Project.

Life is pretty good :-) 

I can help you figure out what kind of life you want, and then create a plan of action for you to get it. 

You don't have to do the same thing I did, once you are clear on what you want, we can create the best way for you.
