Amazing

It’s called “The Empowered Practitioner” for a reason! After listening to just the first episode, i already felt equipped to go full force! Lori’s approach and structure is just so meaningful and authentic, you can feel the passion. I’m looking forward to listening to the rest of the episodes, soaking it all in and taking notes. Forever grateful, thank you Lori 🤍

Robin SLP ,

Do yourself a favor and listen to Lori’s Mindset mastery call

100% fabulous!! Lori and Tyler explained to me why it’s to be expected for experienced professionals to struggle when starting an online business. AND in typical Lori style she also gives actionable tips of how to get better. Best. Episode. Ever. !!

Ten o' clock muse ,

Honest, inspiring and original

This podcast has taught me a ton about becoming an effective and enterprising practitioner. I’ve made significant adjustments to my mindset and work ethic since following Lori’s podcast and webinars (and am really excited to start her program later this spring). Super grateful for this excellent content.
