"Kick Fear To The Curb provided me with a rare opportunity to set aside time for myself to focus on my goals and to explore some of the reasons that prevent me from reaching them.  Fear can take many forms and it wasn't immediately obvious to me what mine were, but Lara provided a safe space and gentle encouragement that helped me navigate the process.  It was helpful to read the comments from others taking the course.  Everyone was being brave and afraid at the same time and it was inspiring." ~ Sandi

"Lara!! I am so grateful for you! Your Kick Fear to the Curb has brought me to a place I couldn't have reached without you and your course! I had the courage to call out that I wasn't happy in my current role in my career, approaching my mentors and coaches, and collectively had open discussions and made the move to a new role! Consequently, I have more time for me!" ~Marissa

"I have had the pleasure of taking the Kick Fear to the Curb online course. The information provided was thought provoking and helped me better understand my own behaviours and reactions. I had many aha moments as I read through and watched the material presented. Lara's guidance and feedback helped make the online environment feel like a 'live' place. I really enjoyed the fact that the modules are available online and that if life gets in the way you are able to pick up where you left off." Amy


"Lara is a wonderful inspiration, and the kind of woman I aspire to be. The way she is able to represent both the light and dark side of the human condition is beautiful. This being the second course I have completed of Lara's, I can honestly say she helps build bridges for others to feel safe in being exactly who they are without judgment. Thank you so much for sharing your own insight and vulnerability throughout this process, and for always making yourself available to others. You are a beautiful soul inside and out! Looking forward to seeing what lies ahead."       Laura-Leigh  GrannyBirdDesigns


"It was an amazing experience.  I would recommend Lara’s virtual workshop to any of my friends in a heartbeat! The community she has built is so positive and supportive. Lara does a great job of providing all the tools you need to feel good about your goals. I think the greatest takeaway from Lara's Virtual Workshop was learning to give myself space to feel the way I want to feel and not take my goals so harshly. It was also amazing to have Lara's reassurance that a lot of people feel the same throughout the process. She's very good at letting you know that you are not alone." Daniella


"I would like to thank Lara for a most excellent 2 days! Lara, you provided the right amount of input and room for personal discovery. An excellent job of delivering what everybody needed in a group setting... definitely worth the investment. Lots of aha moments, great take aways......and new friendships that will continue to growLeslie
