Laura Robertson is the Founder of Beautiful Potential Consulting LLC, Co-founder of iLocal Online Advertising & Marketing, and an Independent Coach, Trainer & Speaker with the John Maxwell Group. Laura and her husband co-host Blasian Soul Podcast, a podcast aimed to highlight Asian and African American community leaders, and she leads a women's advocacy organization, Her Story Matters, based in London.
Walking away from earning close to a quarter-million dollars corporate career would have been unimaginable to Laura as the homeless refugee child, living in hunger waiting to be sponsored for her new life. Laura was born into homelessness and extreme poverty after her family fled the communist invasion of their war-torn country of Laos. She lived the first two years of her life in those extreme conditions for almost two years before finally being sponsored to America. Leaving their life behind, with just one bag and the clothes on their backs, the family set out for their American dream. In her Amazon-published book, "Forty Dollars and a Dream: Breaking Through The Bamboo Ceiling", she shares her life journey and struggles growing up as a refugee and the challenges she faced in corporate America that would eventually lead her to start her own business.
From arriving in America, as a frail, malnourished child, unable to speak English – to who she is now, Laura knew she had a bigger purpose in life. That purpose was to start her entrepreneur journey so she can inspire others no matter the circumstances in which they were born into. Now, as a Business Coach, Laura helps women build their personal brand to gain visibility and make a positive impact while getting paid doing what they love.
I had passion for a business but felt lost where to start. Laura and the team at Beautiful Potential are amazing!!! They helped me get clear about my vision, did a make over and photo shoot for advertising that boosted my confidence and helped me put together a plan for success. With Laura as my business coach and the team at Beautiful Potential helping me feel confident...I feel like I can Conquer the word!!
