What other people have said about working with Laurie McGinley

Laurie gets it: the vision you have in your mind but haven’t found the words to articulate yet.” Mariam Awara, COO of Pulsenics

To move through a barrier (that you may not even know exists), you need someone to pull you though – that someone is Laurie.Stephen McGurk, CEO of Airbridge

If you’re doing meaningful work, she’ll bring out the best version of you. She will challenge your self-imposed limitations and remind you of what’s possible. If you’re looking to level-up your game, then Laurie should be your first call.Pete Zupan, CEO of Sea Change Labs

“If you’re a climateTech founder, sign up now. Laurie McGinley is an amazing business coach and this is a ridiculous offer you shouldn’t miss. If I were a founder in need of a business coach, I would sign up on the spot. Laurie McGinley is amazing, if not magical. Her work for us at Alder & Co. was transformational, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without her (not to mention the exciting times ahead that she has enabled us to focus on). Can wholeheartedly recommend.” – Bettina Grab, co-founder Alder & Co.

“I think you ought to take Laurie up on this coaching offer! The coaching will come in ways you can’t anticipate and will transcend the cost. This may be some of the best money you have ever spent.” – John Buttles, founder Texas Wind Tower

“Laurie provided the direct feedback I needed to hear, even if I didn’t want to. Her layered approach to coaching is insightful and valuable beyond words. You helped me understand my own limits, which in turn helps me not only grow but fill the space I need to fill and let go of the rest.” – Ongeleigh Underwood

“I’ve never met a coach who understood me the way Laurie does. Laurie McGinley is developing a mentor-coaching method that is so needed for high impact founding teams. Her work with the Locoal Charcoal Company founders in helping us articulate complex technologies and methods in climate reversal is incredible. If you’re working on the hard things… the things that are needed, but have a hard time getting people to understand and relate to you, then Via Lucent is the best place to go!” – Miles Murray, co-founder Locoal

“You helped me become more self-aware, you helped me identify limiting beliefs, regain confidence in my talents and trajectory as well as reframe different situations to move forward and continue innovating. Laurie’s capacity to connect and unleash your potential is extraordinary. As a founder and designer, I have started multiple companies and participated in multiple accelerator programs across the world and I can say with confidence that her sessions and professionalism are world class.” – Ilana Milkes, founder ePioneers

“If you’re a founder considering this, just stop reading and sign up. Laurie is incredible at coaching founders to become the best version of themselves. You won’t be sorry!” – Chad McGimpsey, co-founder iCademy
