About Me

Laura Miolla, MoxieLife Coach

“Eighty Percent of Success Is Showing Up.”

I help professionals successfully navigate DIVORCE … by stepping into LEADERSHIP and using it as a springboard for POSITIVE CHANGE. 

Self-limiting beliefs associate disruptive change with chaos. And yet, the only constant in life is change … meaning there will ALWAYS be chaos. Achieving personal and professional success requires you to step into LEADERSHIP and achieve true mastery over yourself and your actions … regardless of the chaos around you. Leadership equals resilience in the face of change. And from this place, you will impact the world around you … based on what you are creating from within. And THAT is the impact I want to help you create.

Based in the United States, I have coached individuals all over the world including the United States, Canada, Spain, Kenya, Colombia, Singapore and the UK. I earned an MA from Tufts University and am a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coaching Federation, a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) through the Coaches Training Institute and a certified Mediator in Massachusetts. I also hosted a radio show – Divorce Sucks: A Smart Girls’ Guide To Doing It Better on VoiceAmerica in early 2015.

My professional background includes 20+ years in management, leadership, strategy and business development serving the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology industries, in specific roles such as Vice President Business Development, Consultant and Advisory Board member. I’m also a writer, with articles published in Huffington Post, Fox News Magazine, Parents Magazine, Thought Catalog, Care2, Working Mother Magazine, Babble, Unlocked Magazine and Solo Parent Magazine.

I am also divorced with two young children. My divorce process took two and a half years and a huge bite out of my bank account. I worked all those years in Corporate America … climbing the corporate ladder … only to lose half of my retirement money AND pay my ex child support (even with 50/50 custody). I learned the hard way how rigged the system really is for professional women. Yet, it also brought me here … to my new life … doing what I love. It also changed how I live and work and play. I live better, with a dedicated focus on balance and health. I work smarter, with perspective and purpose. And I play harder, with joy and a huge amount of gratitude.

I created MoxieLife with 4 key cornerstones or beliefs:

1. Divorce is a gift … to you and your partner. It’s a gift to leave an unfulfilling relationship and create the life you want. It’s a gift to allow and embrace pure freedom to walk the path you choose for yourself. And it’s a gift to know that you are naturally creative, resourceful and whole. You can grow and evolve from this experience and create the life you want. And so can your partner. Not doing so would deny your partner of that opportunity.

2. Divorce is the dissolution of a legal contract, not your family. You can preserve and even enrich your family relationships during and after divorce. You just need clarity and intention to create what you want.

3. Our jobs as parents is not to shield our children from change … it’s to teach them resilience in the face of change. Remember, you are teaching them how to live life based on how you live yours.

4. Divorce is an opportunity to step into your power and leadership. To truly be successful in this process, you need to own it by taking charge in this process and in your life. Using your leadership skills here will help you create the personal and professional opportunities you want.

The bumps in the road aren’t meant to stop you. They’re there to help you learn something you need … to get to the next step. And they’re there to help you appreciate that you are walking (running, jumping, leaping) on your the path at all.

“After I left my ex and moved out of the house, and before I found Laura. I didn’t even know that divorce coaches existed. Following a few therapy sessions, I googled looking for a life coach as I really wanted to move forward fast. Soon, I realized that it, unfortunately, wasn’t possible. I had to face the stages of grief since I was still very much in love with my ex and I had to start a new life. It was overwhelming and extremely painful at times. Laura gave me hope. She held my hand in the first 7 months and I couldn’t have done it without her. I’m still going through the divorce process, but it’s not as challenging as it was at the beginning. I needed someone who knew the ins and outs of the process as I was lost, cut off from the circle of our friends (which was my choice) and my family overseas. The only thing I knew was that no matter what, I needed to keep my grace and dignity. It was so challenging at times, especially since I was subjected to numerous manipulations from my ex … but Laura helped me see the bigger picture when all I could see was the fog. I am deeply grateful for her support, understanding and patience, unlimited email support (which was invaluable) and for her professionalism throughout the process. In addition, Laura helped me with my career and marketing for my new business. Divorce is a huge life changing event and it has its challenges. We can’t do it alone. Family and friends are told give us the support we need. Though, no one fully understands the ins and outs of the process and the pain that it brings like Laura, who has been there herself and has a passion to help us get through to the other side and become even stronger and independent. This divorce has changed me as a person, and with Laura’s help, I found myself again. I would recommend Laura to anyone who wants to turn their divorce into a positive event in their lives … no matter how difficult and contradictory it is at the start of the process. It has so many learning curves and lessons … and Laura is very good at identifying them and helping one grow.” – Marina
