“Coaching through MoxieLife has given me ways to be the best version of myself in my personal and professional life. I went from a fearful call in my basement bathroom, wondering if I could plan a better life, to living my best life working in New York City. Instead of living in fear of negative perceptions, I have chosen to see the positive outcomes of my making good choices about my goals.”

“Laura is a life saver and I am so glad I had her in my corner throughout the divorce process. Call her if you want honest, authentic, knowledgeable help from a very experienced and trained coach. She also was invaluable for my business since she is a leadership coach too. You rock Laura! I highly recommend Laura. She truly is an expert in her field.”

“I was stuck in life, letting all my choices be made for me because I couldn’t make any. Working with Laura, I first defined what I valued most so that I could then move forward, choosing a path that I desired based on my values. I was given the tools I need to make decisions I truly wanted. Now as new challenges pop up in my life, I am able to tune into myself, address my needs and move forward with purpose. I am able to let go of the past or future and make decisions in the present moment. Coaching helped unstick me from whom I thought I was supposed to be and helped me be who I am.”

“Laura helped me get connected to what I need to focus on and how to invest my energy better in order to approach my work and life in general with more purpose and intention. I own a small consulting firm and I've spent many years reacting and trying to be whatever I imagined clients and other people wanted me to be. With Laura’s help, I’ve been able to flip that around and recognize my own strengths. Ultimately, that has helped me clarify goals and evaluate opportunities and decisions from a much more balanced perspective. I was a bit skeptical about coaching at first, but I immediately found Laura’s sessions to be productive and her approach and style to be really engaging and helpful for me. I highly recommend MoxieLife!”

“Laura has been instrumental in my career development from the day we met. She pushed me to discover my strengths early in my career, allowing me to excel beyond my expectations. Where there are many winding career paths, Laura's methods let me look beyond the noise and focus on my internal priorities. She made me realize how to match what I enjoy doing to what I am doing, and never be afraid of pursuing what my ambitions desire. Even after a move outside of the U.S., she finds time to mentor me and help me develop. I highly recommend Laura as a leadership coach at any stage of your career!”

“Laura is, by far, a remarkable coach. I have had an amazing and empowering experience working with her. I can 1000% attribute my success to Laura's coaching, guidance and love. Her passion for what she does resonates in her work, and she clearly cares deeply for her clients. There isn't anyone else besides Laura I'd rather have by my side to navigate this journey we call life. I am beyond grateful to have found her 5 years ago. THANK YOU, LAURA! YOU. ARE. REMARKABLE!”

"I was unsure of what coaching would be like and frankly didn’t think I needed it. After my first few sessions it became clear that, if I were to become the leader that I always wanted to be, I had some work to do.  Laura has helped me see how I directly contribute to my success.  It sounds simple but it is intricate work that requires a talented and skilled coach. She challenges me to look deeper into how I am my saboteur.  She challenges me to change my behavior. She challenges me to lean into my discomfort to progress.

Shortly after we started,  I took a job in a leadership position which was beyond anything I had done before.  I had only ever functioned at the Supervisor level.  I believed there was some kind of mystique to what leadership skills were needed at this level. Laura has helped me realize that there is no mystery. All I need to do is listen more to myself, to my instincts and to trust that I am the star running back and they are lucky to have me!"

“Having a coach allowed me to proceed through my divorce with confidence, thoughtfulness and good advice from someone who only had my best interest in mind.”

Beth Liess

“Laura is an approachable, professional and passionate coach who helped me to reach new and insightful conclusions for my professional journey. She is a great listener, asks the right questions at the right time to make me feel inspired, guided, and ready to make it happen.”

Dorothee

“Our coaching sessions made me realize that I do matter, my choices and boundsries are my own. No one but myself can dictate these things. Realizing that I’ve been gaslighted by an alcoholic spouse and that im not crazy, or alone, has been a valuable realization. It really helped to know i wasnt the first person this happened to.”

Jennifer

“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, unfortunately, it wasn’t possible, I had to face the stages of grief as I was still very much in love with my ex and I also had to start my 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 had to keep my grace and dignity. It was so challenging at times as I was subjected to numerous manipulations from my ex, but Laura helped me see the bigger picture when all I could sometimes 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 give us the support, but no one really fully understands 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 more independent. My 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 divorce into a positive event in their lives, no matter how difficult and challenging 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 you grow.”

”I found Laura Miolla while searching for articles on how to deal with a divorce from my wife and my business partner. I read her article and set up a free consultation to see what she had to offer. I was so impressed that I signed up immediately and setup weekly connections. This is a life changing process, if and only if, “YOU” put the time and energy into working on the challenges that Laura puts in front of you. Every person has the ability to get the most out of their lives but most never realize how to make that happen. Laura helps you tap into this natural resource and guides you down a path of self driven success. She is amazing, available, attentive, knowledgeable, and most of all extremely skilled at pushing you while you are in one of the most challenging times of your life. I, HIGHLY recommend Laura Miolla and her services. Call today, if you want to take control of your life, Laura will help you find the way.”

Jeffrey

“Coaching with Laura was meant to be! I had never even heard of a coach. I had met Laura at a workshop, chatted a bit and when I took her business card, I made sure I put it in my wallet so I would not lose it. That phone call was the best way to start 2014 which I vowed would be my year to get this divorce done. I had been separated for a few years and living in limbo. I was “stuck” in my life about how to handle my divorce and my life. I put off all the major decisions, living like a robot with the day to day routines; procrastination was my middle name. The tools Laura has taught me work and I am using them. My captain & crew are inside me now and it feels good to “talk” and “listen” to them. I sure do make them work hard. I have learned things about myself that have been dormant for years. I am excited about my new adventure in life! The word “Moxie” is awesome!”

Pat

“I started talking with Laura in the exact moment I needed her. I was in the middle of the process of my separation, and I didn’t know how to handle my feelings and emotions. Laura gave me the tools to search and dig into myself to find the strength and the light I needed in that moment to see things about myself I haven’t seen and to start living with the best that’s inside me. Now I can see that I am living closer to my real me, and leaving behind all that was hurting me and making me feel bad. I thank Laura for being part of this process, and walking by my side in this difficult moment.” 

Barbara

“I always thought a coach wasn’t for me. However, after my first call with Laura I completely changed my mind! Laura’s coaching has helped me to understand how my own inner saboteurs are getting in the way and how to get rid of them. My calls with her are helping me reach not only personal goals but also helping me advance my career. I appreciate her honesty and willingness to listen to whatever is bothering me – work or personal – to help me figure out how to move forward. Her “homework” assignments have been interesting and have helped me gain a different perspective on things.”

Anna

“Laura helped me change some of the behaviors that limit my personal happiness and cause repeated patterns of conflict with my spouse. She also helped me identify my core values which has helped create a clear path to greater fulfillment in my life.”

Ryan

“Laura has been a wonderful guide and coach helping me navigate through my very stressful, roller coaster of a divorce. She gets right to the point in focusing her questions on what you really need to look at. I highly recommend Laura’s guidance in any horrible divorce situation you may have to go through.”

Marilyn

“If you want to stop the bleeding from the pain, anguish and confusion of being gutted by a narcissist, you can stop it. I found Laura by searching for ‘divorce coach / narcissist’. She is the right fit for this situation. The free consultation is no joke and not a waste of time – it is real and genuine. It was the exact lifeline I was looking for. Her help, understanding and knowledge of how to put together the skills at the right time for the right issue is clear and evident in your first consultation. My audible.com library is a content list of Help Me Help Me books – How to Survive a Narcissist and all of the top books for dealing with the abuse of NPD. My life was gutted two years ago, and I am still crawling out. I was closeted, unknowingly by my husband of 18 years. As he built a separate agenda of hooking up and exploring his sexual identity, I was losing my life, not knowing what the problem was in our marriage but keeping devoted to my vows. Finally, I found his porn addiction, hook ups and lost or hidden money. I found I was a survivor and learned about the Straight Spouse Network. Rebuilding my life at 61 and anxious to get back to thriving again with my creativity, I then found Laura. The caring confidence and skills she offers make me begin to see how I can gain control of this closure and focus on a new beginning. I feel in my heart and know I can thrive again. She is caring, and focused and she’s your road ahead – she can give you the tools you need no matter where you are in this process. She is a real person helping you survive the damage of a fake person. Just what I was hoping to find. Her website, tools, organized manner and concise communication is outstanding.”

Amy

“I came to Laura not knowing what to expect. I was miserable in my marriage and I knew I needed something (someone?) to help me finally make a decision about what to do. I came across a blog post of hers and called her the same day. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to get through this process on my own. When you are thinking about divorce, it’s like deciding to leave everything you know and enter into some kind of strange, dark abyss where everything is mysterious—possibly horrifying and possibly glorious, and possibly both. What I came to learn, through Laura, is that my marriage/divorce is only a small part of the puzzle of why I feel stuck, undervalued and prone to listening to critical voices that have been following me for years. Oh my god, I did not know I was going to go there with Laura! I thought we were going to talk about divorce! So far in my time with her, we haven’t much talked about divorce or how much of a jerk my husband is, or my lawyer will be, etcetera. Without wasting even a single moment, Laura systematically helps me uncover (and debunk) all the reasons I’m settling for less than I need, want and deserve. After only a few sessions, Laura has helped me see that I’m like the person clinging to the wave-beaten detritus for fear of drowning when the island paradise is only a few yards away. I just have to let go and swim! One more thing… Laura specializes in divorce, but I think anyone dealing with life’s challenges (be it divorce or something else) can benefit from working with her. She is a truly talented and practical coach. She has high expectations of you, and I think you will have higher expectations of yourself after even a few sessions.”

“I can be a stubborn skeptic. I think I can do everything all by myself and that I don't need anyone's help. The only problem was, I wasn't doing anything. I was stuck at a place in my life where I knew I didn't want to stay where I was, but I couldn't figure out where I wanted to go next, never mind implementing the thought process and steps needed to get there. Enter, Laura. Since I started working with her, I've been able to harness my own internal strength and wisdom to identify my goals, my barriers, and the steps I need to take to reach my ultimate destination. I'm not there yet, but I've come a long way and I know Laura will be instrumental in helping me reach my final destination.”

“Words can not express how truly thankful I am for Laura’s guidance. I am definitely not the same person. She transformed my thinking in ways that allowed me to look at my divorce as a blessing, rather than a curse. Thankfully, I can now focus on the things that bring happiness into my life and give my children the love and attention they deserve.”

“Laura’s help was invaluable as I transitioned out of a 12-year marriage and a life that felt full of unnecessary pressure, disappointing and frustrating at times. My experience with Laura helped me get a better appreciation of the woman I’ve always been during one of the most difficult timed in my life! From the very first discussion I felt challenged, validated, hopeful and empowered. I’m thrilled about moving forward in my life in greater wisdom, strength, joy and peace!! She is a great listener, holds me accountable to my feelings, choices and actions. She has a gift for making powerful life-changing concepts simple and clear! I tell EVERYONE I meet about her, so many of us suffer in silence with our own personal trauma, she’s truly a healer!”

“Working with Laura has been one of the best investments I have made in myself. It has allowed me to grow, find my leadership style and achieve my highest goals and aspirations both personally and professionally. It has helped me move past the things that were holding me back, things I wasn’t even aware of. The impact, transformation and clarity to my business has been tremendous.”

“Laura was invaluable in helping me through my divorce in a graceful and amicable way. I was terrified of the process, but Laura helped me break it down into manageable "next steps" to be accomplished one by one. She also gave me infinite support in loving myself through it all. After my divorce, I was let go from my job of eight years. We created a vision of my ideal position, and a few months later, that job literally found me! AND in that same week, I met my current partner. Today, my life, job and relationship have never been better.”

“Laura Miolla is more than a Transformational Life Coach. She has a magic wand that she waves with love and strategy to give her clients the best results. She creates truthful connections with empathy and clear pathways to success. I really appreciated her support for me in creating boundaries for myself, whilst navigating my divorce and securing my business through the process. I knew exactly where I was heading and took ownership of my personal power, unapologetically. I know when I have met a true professional gem because I now consider her to be a true friend and a stellar coach in any situation where women need understanding and actionable goals. She has a wide variety of tools and techniques which are well placed intuitively suited to a given situation based on your vast experience and intuitive insights. I have no hesitation in hiring Laura and recommending her highly, a great coach to have on your team and in your corner. I trust her without question.”

“I was unsure about working with a coach until I was at global branding summit several years ago with some of the world's top brand strategists. Out of the elite group of 14 people, I was one of the few without a coach. Laura’s name came up repeatedly, so I gave her a call. Her coaching style blends solid business strategy and process with a high level of personal development. With her help, I was able to boost the productivity and happiness of myself and my team while contributing to the bottom line of the university I was working at. Several years later I’m still using those same processes and strategies to great effect for Impakt Media.”

“As women in leadership, we often find that we just keep doing, and keep going, trying to meet a predefined standard, or be someone else's definition of successful. That's a lot of pressure. Instead, we need to take the time to learn how to celebrate our strengths and our contributions, value our relationships, and own our leadership capabilities. It's in that space, the space where our purpose and passion exist, that we find success. That's where Moxie can help.”

“Laura’s thoughtful and direct approach to identifying my business opportunities and provoking questions have had a positive impact not only how I approach my business goals, but also how I conduct business.”

Donna Berk

“What do people get when they go Moxie? They get straight talking, right-on-the-edge personal challenges, immense support through a process that works for the individual, all leading to a sense of transformation.”

Matt

“Working with Laura forced me to confront reality, center myself, and plan for the path ahead. She constantly reminded me that my fears about things that haven’t happened yet, were just that, fears. I thoroughly enjoyed the personal growth exercises and highly recommend her.”

Jon

“Laura encouraged me to do what serves me and helped me take the next scary and intimidating steps toward divorce. This will ultimately lead to a fuller, healthier life that I️ deserve.”

Julie

“Since moving back home at the end of July, I can’t even tell you how great things have been. I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined that our situation could turn around like it has. We are really enjoying spending time together, going on vacation, just COMMUNICATING. It’s really amazing. When people ask me what changed to allow us to reconcile, I have to tell them that we BOTH changed. Wow! People at work have commented on my new-found sense of confidence, and how I handle things differently than in the past. I think I say this every time I reach out to you, but I really can’t thank you enough for guiding me and giving me the tools to turn my life around. I sing the praises of life coaching (and specifically YOU!) often!”

Lisa

“I’ve been working with Laura for several months now, and I have to say, I am so grateful to have found her. I am having a really tough time with my life right now. It’s completely upside down and each day is a battle. It’s a long journey toward recovery, but if you are looking to work with someone that will help you and keep you from falling off the edge, she is the person to work with. There’s no judgment, there’s no talking about the past, it’s all about moving forward. We all instinctively want to harp and lament on the past, but Laura does not let you fall into that pit for a long time, because she knows that moving forward is your only option. She helps you realize that focusing on the changes we can make now will shape the future we want. I don’t know what is to become of my future, but I can tell you, that if you told me six months ago I’d be working toward what I am working on now, I’d think you were crazy. Laura has helped me stay the course. She’s there to support you, guide you, and keep you going, no judgment. EVER. I thank the Lord for her every day. Work with a coach, not a psychologist or therapist. They’ll only make you relive the past and for what?  So you can dissect something you can’t change? That’s not productive. Working with Laura is. Work with her, you’ll be glad you did.”

Andrea

“I had no idea where to start when I was fairly certain I wanted to file for divorce. A google search led me to divorce coaches and ultimately, I hired Laura to be my coach. Hiring Laura was the absolute best decision I could have made! I started this process scared, broken and unsure what to do first. That was 4 months ago. Through Laura’s coaching sessions, I have learned to define what I WANT for my future and I am now very confident in stating exactly what I want in the divorce agreement and have a clear vision for what I want the next chapter of my life to look like. If you are looking for someone that is compassionate, a good listener, who sets expectations and follows them for each coaching session, always meets with you as scheduled and is willing to work as hard as you are on your future then definitely hire Laura for your coach! Trust me – you will not regret it.”

Julie

“Laura’s insight and wisdom are second to none. She pushes me to live my best life, and I eagerly recommend her to anyone.”

Robin

“Laura was the person who knew the most about my divorce. She always tried to calm me down, and to help me see the bigger picture. I loved having someone to talk to who was on my side but didn’t have a stake in the divorce in any way. She was able to support me through my very worst, worst days, when I was feeling very, very low. She was able to encourage me and push me when I needed it. Her perspective really helped me through possibly the hardest experience of my life to date. I am incredibly grateful.”

Ceara

“My life and mind were in total chaos when I happened across Laura’s website. I had no idea she was exactly what I needed! She worked me through some of my most difficult times ever and provided me with the tools and wisdom I needed to move forward. With her help I’ve discovered an incredible sense of personal peace and am feeling more confident in my future than I have in a very long time.”

Lisa

“It’s never too late to make changes and to find the path that is right for you. Life coaching with Laura helped me find places in my life and my thinking where I had become stuck. Her perceptive questions and assignments challenged me to re-examine how I viewed myself, my experiences, and my world. Some discoveries shocked me. The new perspectives I gained through Laura’s coaching have led me to make some amazing changes in my life. Be warned though, participating in life coaching is not for the faint-of-heart—you will have to take a hard look at yourself and recognize what you have been doing that isn’t working for you and then you will need to have a good amount of courage to start doing something different. Life coaching helped me discover facets of myself that I didn’t even knew existed. I am now venturing into new things that reflect the passions and life purpose that had been buried inside me all these years and were only able to be uncovered, recognized, and appreciated through the insights gained from Laura’s coaching.”

Merrilee

“It’s much easier taking the high road when you are living for yourself and not allowing someone to make you feel a certain way because of their actions. It’s liberating. You’ve taught me some valuable lessons and made me realize what’s important to me and how to be happy again! Thank you! You helped me off the ground when I was down… Words can’t describe…”

Noha

“Working with Laura, I saved $18,000 on legal fees and didn’t even know that was possible before.”

Amy

“I lived in a state of confusion for years. A few sessions with Laura & my world started seeing clarity. You owe it to yourself to be coached; no reason to go through it alone.”

Liz

“I found my time spent with Laura some of the most useful and productive things I have done for myself. It was a gift to myself to invest in coaching with Laura. My issues and problems didn’t change but yet I found new answers and new approaches to my lifelong struggles. I am certainly not done but enjoy living a more authentic life than I ever have.”
