You’ve got your own business—and big potential.
There’s just one little problem: You don’t know what to do next.
So you live with your mobile glued into your hand, downloading free e-books and perusing the internet, gobbling any tip that gives you direction.
Each Monday morning your head is spinning. You consider tweaking your website or buying another course. By the end of the day, you’ve achieved almost nothing…as if time has just slipped through your fingers…
You can’t grow your business without a solid foundation and systems that align with your long-term goals.
You need structure—the kind you had when you worked in corporate, when you had planning sessions and strategy and other people to help you.
And you need it all tailored to you.
Introducing Build Your Business Backbone, the only program that connects overworked, heart-centered entreprenuers with the secret-weapon strategies of billion-dollar businesses.
This program gives you access to my Build Your Business, Sister! Toolkit, a unique bundle of secret-weapon strategies, cheat sheets, inspiraton and actions for growth.
Once you’ve got a rock-solid business foundation, you’ll layer on the heart.
Together, we’ll identify your business goals and the specific action steps that you’ll take to get there.
Every light bulb moment will lead you to faster, easier problem solving, more satisfying customer connections, and rapid growth both in and outside the office.
This program is driven by a simple idea:
I’ll show you how to spot these clues and how to identify the signposts that point the way to passionate profit.
So you’re never directionless or confused about which next step to take.
Plus you’ll hone your internal GPS—the voice inside you that already knows exactly who you are and what you want.
So you can stop seeking advice in all the wrong places (like your play-it-safe sister or your bored-to-tears cousins at Christmas dinner).
We take these clues and intuitive guidance, couple them with everything I know about achieving business success, and assemble an easily implementable plan that’s totally you.
When you rely on soulful systems and your personalised plan, you get growth you can bank on—and more freedom to enjoy it.
Being an entrepreneur with big dreams and a big heart makes you unique in the business marketplace.
I know because I’ve walked way more than a mile in your shoes, and I know the unique perils and pleasures you face.
I remember waking up the Monday morning after I left my corporate job. I’d landed my first client at farewell drinks, so I was officially running my own business.
Lara has worked with me in a number of different roles. Firstly as an HR consultant, then a corporate coach and more recently to facilitate senior leadership business planning activities. I will continue to use Lara, as at all times she is professional, focused on outputs and fun to work with! Genevieve Glover, HR Director, Barchester Healthcare
On that first day of freedom, I felt so excited…until I opened my closet and realised it was full of suits. I almost burst into tears because I literally had nothing to wear. My whole life had been defined by corporate travel. I wore suits every day. It was the first day of freedom, yes, and the first day of a whole new set of challenges…
But I called on my studies in personal development and put my homegrown techniques into practice. Using the skills I now teach in Build Your Business Backbone, I’ve built several successful and diverse businesses from the ground up.
I’ve worked with Lara on a number of projects over the years and is an extremely reliable and proven partner. She is works with multiple stakeholders to understand their needs and deliver a high quality program. I have worked with her on management development programs, HR capability coaching, 360 and Situational Leadership. Lara is also one of the most effective virtual trainers and coaches having an engaging manner that drives interaction and learning. I would certainly recommend her to others. Fiona Smith, Talent and Capability Director
Your small business will never be never one-size fits all.
That’s why I do things differently than most business coaches.
I’ve got two decades of hands-on experience transforming leadership in global corporations.
That means you get access to the strategic planning and techniques of the world’s top 1% of businesses.
I specialise in holding up the mirror so that your business is a true reflection of your own unique personality, skills and the awesomeness you’re bringing to the world.
So you rocket through ah-ha moments, develop intimate client relationships, and learn how to manage and lead yourself through the ups and downs every entrepreneur needs to navigate.
I’ve been an entrepreneur for 10+ years, with consistent profits despite constant evolution (and one spectacular business fail!).
Part of being an entrepreneur is the creative impulse for change. I’ll show you how to apply the art of resilience to design a business that keeps pace with your desire for personal growth.
I’m as passionate about your unique business model as you are.
Sounds like a line, right? It’s not. Just last week I popped out of bed at 3am to scribble down a genius idea for one of my clients. When we work together, you get more than a trusted advisor—you get a collaborative partner who prioritises doing things your way.
Lara is an inspirational teacher of NLP and a fantastic coach. She is extraordinarily knowledgeable about her expert area and genuinely delights in sharing it with others. Her sense of humour and passion for the subject engages everyone who deals with her. Amanda Walker, Director of Brand Communications at B&Q
After we work together, you’ll be able to:
- Communicate more effectively, close more sales, and create happier clients by getting to know them and what makes them tick
- Earn the money you deserve by providing the value your clients want
- Stand tall in your identity as a true entrepreneur, one who isn’t afraid to assess what’s not working and adjust your sails accordingly
- Recharge your passion and entrepreneurial spirit by connecting to your unique possibility, potential, and purpose
By eliminating the “solo” in solopreneur, you’ll discover the secret to rapid business growth.
After all, you can’t high five yourself.
Bottom line: Build Your Business Backbone is your ticket to clarity, grit, and a winning plan designed just for you.
Can your dreams afford to wait?
Lara is an excellent business and life coach who provides great support to individuals and teams. While I was the Operations Director for AEG at The O2 she developed personality assessments of my management team which provided them and me with an excellent insight to their preferred operational styles. This helped us all to perform as an effective team at The O2 in London during our pre- and post-opening months. She then coached individuals to develop their own business skills. Lara also provided me with specific coaching to develop my own leadership and management skills. Working one-to-one she gave objective advice and guidance which helped me to develop personally and as an effective leader. If you want an easy going but effective coach for your personal or professional life then talk to Lara and see what she can do for you and your team. Tim Rawlins, Global Head, Security Services (RoW) at Credit Suisse
If you’re ready to overhaul your business, we can work together in one of two ways.
Build Your Business Backbone: The VIP Session
Take control of your business—FAST
Lots of business coaches want to overlay their model of the world onto yours. I don’t.
Instead, I ask inquisitive questions to understand your model, to really get around it and inside it. I take the time to understand what you want—deeply.
Then we build the pathways and framework to achieve your highest potential in a way that works for you.
Together, we transform your high potential into profitable achievements.
One-on-one coaching is the fastest, most effective way to lasting change. It’s personal, private and jam-packed with customised strategies and support.
My VIP sessions are intensive coaching calls engineered for rapid change. In the course of just a few short hours, we’ll overhaul, define, and turbocharge your business.
“With one phone call Lara managed to shift my entire paradigm. She was the swift kick in the pants that I desperately needed to get things moving to create my dream business! She confirmed and nurtured my ideas and passions, while also giving me some wonderful advice, resources and great “homework” to delve into! The future is looking much brighter and it only took one call! I look forward to working with Lara on a regular basis…once I get all of my “homework” done!” Christal Vivian-Brown

1. your business vision + how to develop the strategy that will make it a reality
2. daily, weekly and monthly road-map
3. knowing your ideal client
4. building your own backbone, so that you can keep going even when the going gets tough
5. leadership of self and others
With these fundamentals in place, you’ll realise you don’t have to reinvent the wheel to get everything you want.
Whether you run a brick-and-mortar or on-line business The Mastermind builds your rock-solid foundation and sustainable plan for growth.
Even if you’re just getting started, you’ll build life-long skills that bring the glimmer of an idea to the realisation of a dream.
You’ll learn how to:
- Use your big vision and emotional self-awareness to keep motivation and energy high
- Manage your feelings and communicate effectively even when things go wrong

- Build systems that connect to your deepest passion, so you get excited about making slow, steady progress
- Recognise detours as seize-worthy opportunities—and adapt your plans to nab the advantage
I’d like to thank the amazing Lara Young – I was lucky enough to grab one of her sessions and it was incredible. In one hour she helped me to completely revamp my business direction, create new services and move my mindset from stuck & overwhelmed to overflowing with ideas and a list of specific action steps. If you are looking for a supportive but no-nonsense coach who gets you moving forward in your business, hire her immediately. Hannah O’Brien, Champagne Start Up
Getting excited? Here’s how The Mastermind works:
- We begin with a three-day business retreat so you can dive deep and discover what you truly want for your business. You’ll create an inspired roadmap to your goals, attend workshops to build your personal skill-set, and connect on profound levels with your fellow entrepreneurs.
- After this intense immersion, you’ll stay connected and on-track through a dedicated Facebook group and weekly group and 1:1 coaching calls.
- You’ll be accountable (and applauded) when we meet for another wrap-up retreat. This final mastermind blasts through stumbling blocks, recalibrates your roadmap for changes you’ve uncovered in real time, and sends you back into your growth spiral with renewed excitement and energy.
This mastermind has the potential to completely transform your business. (And I don’t make that promise lightly.)
I know because I’ve designed and facilitated these types of programs for individuals and leadership teams all over the world, and I’ve seen their results firsthand. Now I’m thrilled to apply my extensive strategy and planning experience to the unique challenges you face every day.
As long as you show up, complete all the activities and commit to applying what you’ve learned, I’ll guarantee that you will get results.
