A little more about Laura Scout Coaching: Laura Swartzbaugh created her coaching business, Laura Scout Coaching, in 2018. She attributes her success to learning how to love herself fiercely -- including her imperfections -- & believe whatever she damn well pleases. Her superpowers include her intuitive, lightning-quick coaching, her natural compassion & playfulness, and her belief that self trust can save the world. She’s on a mission to help as many women as possible say bye-bye to the life they think they should have and create the one they actually want.
