SO YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ME…
I spent a shit load of time and money on professional development courses and business programs, but it wasn't until I focused on my personal performance that I started to achieve real success.
Uppy was created after I experienced a major burn out. I’d worked my arse off to get to the top, but in doing so I hit rock bottom – with my business, health and life.
Although on the face of it everything appeared to be successful, behind closed doors it was a very different story. My bank account was almost empty, I was incredibly lonely because I’d neglected all my friends and loved ones, and my wellbeing was completely buggered.
I put on weight (even though my diet and exercise hadn’t changed), I had adrenal fatigue, erratic moods, anxiety, digestive issues, extreme bloating, my brain was consistently foggy and I hadn’t had a period in two years!
I felt like a failure, even though I’d given it my all.
As a result, I wasn’t performing anywhere near my optimum. I’d be so stressed about getting clients and improving my cashflow, that I'd go into overwhelm and be crippled by procrastination and self-doubt - so I wouldn’t do the things I needed to do in order to get clients and improve my cashflow!
I was stuck in a perpetual cycle of mind fuckery, but I was too busy to see a way out.
Eventually the universe gave me a massive kick up the arse. It was 5pm on a Friday afternoon – I’d gone home early for once, and was just about to collapse on the couch when I got a call from my head trainer who said, “Hey Laura, there’s been a bang and there’s some smoke.”
Long story short, over the course of the next few hours I stood and watched my entire business burn to the ground. I’d invested everything I had (and more) into that place, and just like that, it was all gone.
It cost me a lot of time and money to get my health and life back, and build a business that allows me to live the life I want. I invested in endless courses, books, therapies and programs, and eventually it lead me to the understanding that the source of everything is my mind.
I realised that I am the source of my success. So once I learned how to manage and overcome my perfectionism, my need to be liked by everyone, my obsession with being the best, my self-sabotaging tendencies and my body image issues, that’s when shit started to get real.
That’s when I found my real confidence, learned how to balance my life in a way that plays to my strengths and the things I love, and discovered that productivity is so much more than simply ticking tasks off your to-do list.
Since then I’ve made it my mission to free other business women from this same mind fuckery – because we’re all going through it. So I’ve married all my personal experiences with my years of education and professional experience, to create unique programs that not only show you how to supersize your productivity, confidence and balance, but also support you in taking massive action to get maximum results and achieve the real success you deserve.

I've been invited by several media outlets to speak as a personal performance expert.
My biggest learning has been to focus on the things I can control and let go of the things I can’tLaura Moore, Queen of Uppyness
