Born in San Francisco, CA, Laurie grew up bouncing between three very different environments - San Francisco, Toronto, Canada and Key West, FL. The variety of cultures and experiences taught Laurie how to thrive in any setting. She considers this ability one of her greatest assets. Laurie made a name for herself in the South Florida residential real estate development industry starting in the 1990s. She quickly became known for the thoroughness of her advance planning, the exceptional quality of her work product and ability to lead in emergency situations. She worked with a couple of large developers for several years - until a former employer insisted she start her own business, so he could be the first client.
She started King Enterprise USA, Inc. in 2001 and has enjoyed helping clients with a wide variety of projects. Her familiarity with legalese, construction, customer service and government agencies gives her a comprehensive understanding of how various components can affect the whole. According to many colleagues, her super powers are planning and organizing.
Laurie is an avid knitter, enjoys reading science fiction, dabbles in writing, adores everyone's fur babies, loves action movies and enjoys cold weather. She finds hosting workshops and lectures very fulfilling.
With decades of success in business, Laurie is a valuable resource for entrepreneurs. She has learned through experience what the best language is for a proposal, how to invoice clients to ensure consistently prompt payment, what pitfalls to avoid and what opportunities shouldn't be missed.
It is very easy for small businesses to get "in the weeds" and have administrative and planning functions shelved until "later". An entrepreneur's time is best spent on their specialty, either assisting existing clients, or gaining new clients. We handle the "back of house" administrative tasks so you can keep your focus where it brings the most financial benefit.
