Coaching

After only two coaching sessions, I have seen huge gains in my business. LuAnn is the real deal. She is caring, encouraging, and the kindness and interest she demonstrates on her show is exactly how she is in person. As a former psychologist, I find the level of insight into human psychology LuAnn possesses related to sales to be truly remarkable. ”

The Book

Quote icon

I’ve been a designer for years, but after a major relocation and ongoing home renovation during the past 2 years, I’ve been on the fence about restarting in my new location. Technology and information information overload is raising my i verwhelm to new heights. But here in The Making of a Well-Designed Business, I see a manual for actually getting down to it and getting some thing done. So much practical information in a logical step by step format, filled with encouragement and common sense examples and exercises, that I feel reenergized and empowered to reinvent my business in my new location.

Some lessons i learned from listening to the podcasts were reinforced in the book, and anybody who can reference “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie” in a business manual is my kind of mogul, but what struck me most is the authenticity and integrity that LuAnn lives by. You can’t fake that and it’s what makes her the engaging and successful powerhouse that she is. ”

I wish I had this book 20+ years ago when starting my business. With thoughtful and concise information, LuAnn lays out a plan that will have any business owner ready for success. Too often new businesses open without a plan, and failing to plan is planning to fail. This book is perfect for anyone just starting out, OR someone in business for several years. Consistent education and new ideas are an essential part of the framework of any well-designed business, and LuAnn's manual will be an asset to your business-building library. ”

You are so right: "Excellence is a Decision"! ”

The Podcast

She asks the questions that anyone would love to ask those who have “made it” or created a successful system in a very conversational, relaxed but very informative way. ”

It is beautifully clear from your show that you research, execute and produce your podcast ​with a passion that is simply amazing.

Your show has helped me enormously in ways that are impossible to mention here. Your grace and perspectives on responsible business have resonated with me profoundly. Before listening to your show, I never fully appreciated the responsibilities I owed myself prior to looking after my clients and their projects. This pause for reflection gained from A Well-Designed Business has reaped dividends personally and professionally for me beyond measure. ”

LuAnn is an exceptional talent in business and in acquiring and interviewing the best design industry talent. She is at once warm, engaging, professional. Her podcasts have been the most profound, empowering and enriching I’ve ever heard. Having discovered her a few months ago, I’m making excuses for road trips so I can listen to the entire backlist. ”
