Helped me become a better C-level executive and improve my voice
Chief Operating Officer, School District 300
“It has been an amazing year working with Lori as my Executive Performance Coach. Not only has she improved my abilities to be a better C-level executive, she provided insight on how to be better balanced in all areas of my life.
Throughout the year, we established weekly and monthly goals. We monitored progress in those areas to ensure we did not lose sight of those goals. She also provided sessions to dig into barriers in various areas of my life that prevented me from reaching my full potential. I highly recommend Lori’s coaching to help others to become better leaders and find balance to create their best life.” — Susan Harkin
Helped me start my business and achieve my goal to own my DREAM home in six months
“Just put a contract in for a home for me and the children with a closing date of December 15 by 3:30 PM. Offer was accepted and I am under contract my friend. I don’t know the feeling I can really describe in this moment but every goal that you set with me I have hit and exceeded this year and now my big final goal will be complete December 15 at 2 pm! Thank you for your support, thank you for your wisdom, thank you for believing in me, and thank you for pushing me to be the best version of myself.” — Brandy (with house keys and Coach Lori)
Helped me face my fears, improve my health and get promoted
“Lori is a genuine and instinctive coach and she has changed my life! I began my relationship with her by doing the cleanse and trying to feel better about myself. I engaged Lori as a coach and over the course of 9 months, I decluttered my life, dropped almost 6% body fat and have been promoted at work. She gives you the courage to face your fears and beliefs so you can move past them on your way to your goals. I am also proud to say she is a friend.” — Rachael
Partnered with me to mentally and emotionally declutter and gain clarity
“A few months ago Lori and I had our initial introductory call. By the end of our first introductory call I already felt lighter and optimistic, and we hadn’t even formally started coaching yet! I immediately started to shift my thinking and implement things we discussed. She has partnered with me to mentally and emotionally declutter and gain clarity.
The new perspective has helped me get out of my own way and has brought me to some significant changes in life, both personally and professionally. Lori has asked insightful questions and helped me shift to a healthier state of mind while holding me accountable for my own progress. She challenges me to rid myself of self-imposed limitations and set my sights high. Working with Lori has had a tremendous impact on my life and that of my family. The investment has proven to be well worth it!” —Isabelle
Confidence has grown, tremendous insights gained
IT Business Leader
“Coach Lori provided me with valuable tools and techniques to assist me in getting out of my own way on my journey. She shared tremendous insights and asked many powerful questions that challenged me to grow and stretch making real progress towards my goals. I found that by changing my focus from the external things that I couldn’t control to internal things that I could, I got my personal power back. I lost eight of the ten pounds I wanted to lose on my cleanse and people at work commenting on how radiant I looked. I felt so much better by eliminating foods that were toxic for my body. My confidence has grown since I have been working with Lori. What a difference – I am truly grateful.” —Carrie
MasterMind calls connected me with other like-minded women
“Lori’s holistic approach to the mind-body connection and building a foundation of health is what resonates with me. I’m working with Lori as I’m going through a transition on how I’ll fit in at the bank since my CFO is retiring and what I would like out of my career going forward. Her monthly MasterMind call connected me with other women to share our experiences and knowledge to cross over “finish lines” we’ve set for ourselves.” —Jen
From alcoholic to confident in myself
Alcoholic Business Woman
“I contacted Coach Lori for help after I got my third DUI. I was going through a very messy divorce from an abusive husband and my first few meetings at AA told me that it wasn’t going to help me. I knew about the work Lori was doing and her ability to change people’s lives so I called and asked if she could help me. Lori first taught me about the link between diet, nutrition and sugar sensitivity and how this plays into alcoholism. Much to my surprise I gave up sugar in less than two weeks which significantly helped to eliminate my cravings for alcohol. With the nutritional supplements and her keeping on me to plan and eat balanced meals I had a foundation to work from toward recovery.
But Lori goes far beyond the chemical addiction and cravings. She taught me so much about my thoughts and how I was defeating myself on a daily basis. She never judged me, but always encouraged me and told me how much she believed in me. I improved my self-esteem one step at a time. People at work started to notice the changes. Coach Lori said she heard it in my voice. It took me awhile longer to see and accept it.
Lori is a compassionate and caring coach who is dedicated to helping you reach your goals toward recovery, better habits and a much better quality of life. Her approach is different, alternative and refreshing. So, Lori thank you for all you have done and continue to do for me. You are a great source of encouragement and inspiration to me. Now I plan on going out there and Kicking some ASS!
Two thumbs up to a great life coach. I highly recommend her.” —Susan
When I prioritize taking care of myself it helps the whole family
Vice President, Corporate Director
“Before the cleanse, I was bloated, tired and had indigestion a lot. I also was worried and distracted about my daughter. The cleanse helped me realize that some of my food choices were making my moods worse and affecting my sleeping. My ‘highs and lows’ were much deeper. I’m now more even keeled and have a better energy…besides losing 15 pounds and having my clothes fit again. I found that when I prioritize taking care of myself it helps the whole family. I always feel energized and focused after our calls. Thank you Lori!” —Rachael
Easier than I thought to change my nutritional habits
“Lori coached me through her nutritional and cleanse program. I was dreading the process but knew that I needed to do it for the sake of my health. It turned out to be a fascinating experience and much easier to do than I thought. Lori’s coaching resulted in a 20 pound weight loss and broke my lifelong sugar addiction in just a few weeks! The success I had was more than I expected and I plan to do this program again on a recurring basis. I highly recommend Lori’s services if you are stuck in bad habits and want to make a successful change.” —Julie
From stressed out—to future of endless possibilities
“I was in a really bad place with family, work and overall life stress. It felt like nothing I was doing was helping. I found myself snapping at every little things with the dumbest things stressing me out. I was looking forward to my next drink or chocolate bar just to get a quick reprieve from it all – which the reprieve became shorter and shorter. That’s when Lori asked if I was interested in trying something different.
She then explained to me how the alcohol, chocolate and other junk foods were causing “false moods”. I needed to rebuild myself before I could fix any of the problems. She then challenged me to try changing my eating habits in combination with these supplements that were both going to help REFRESH my mind and body. If I tried this for a week or two would start noticing a difference. I was skeptical at first, but I figured it couldn’t get any worse! I didn’t think much of it, but I still accepted her challenge, finished up the “bad” foods I had and replaced them with healthier foods along with taking a few different supplements during the day and a few talk sessions to help guide my thought process to a more positive one. It wasn’t long till I noticed that my approach to the the things that previously set me off was much calmer. Instead of reacting, I took a step back, evaluated the problem and found an easy solution.
I didn’t believe at first that it would work, but I’ve since purged all of the negative influences in my life, found an amazing new girlfriend and start a better paying job on Monday! What I once saw as a bleak and hopeless future is now full of endless possibilities!” —Evan
Supplements saved my life
“Lori Hanson is one of the few persons in all my years of psychiatric care that has really gotten through to me, she’s shown me solutions – she showed me that I don’t have to be chained to the psychiatric system for the rest of my life. I made more progress with her in a couple months than I ever did while inpatient or with the hundreds of sessions with the therapists that I’ve had in my life. The supplements she suggested to me didn’t just help me, they saved my life. The very first email I sent to her after starting the supplements was the most exciting moment I’ve ever had during treatment- for the first time in the past 2 years I went an entire week without planning a suicide. I didn’t need to kill myself anymore, because all those pent up emotions that chained me down and overwhelmed my life were suddenly not so bad. I wasn’t taking drugs that simply covered up my emotions, the emotions just didn’t control me anymore- the supplements were really helping me. I couldn’t believe it, but it was true.
Not only did the supplements help, but the sessions I’ve had with Lori have helped as well. Though Lori is a really easy person to talk to about anything, I have always found it to be very difficult to talk about certain things in my life with anyone. She taught me how to center myself to find a safe medium so that I could allow myself to talk. She got me to open up, it’s the first time anybody in my years of treatment had ever gotten me to talk like that.” —Doja
One day intensive worth its weight in gold!
Struggling motivational speaker and first time author
“I decided to hire Lori Hanson as my speaking coach. After much discussion I decided it would be best to fly from Pennsylvania to Colorado for a one day intensive training. It seemed like a lot at first, but I’m here to tell you it was worth its weight in gold. Lori gave me a total experience and covered everything I needed to know to get my business and my career off on the right foot. She was able to provide me with honest feedback and positive direction and her leadership greatly accelerated my company. We set goals, established a target market and developed a clear plan for both my speaking career, my first book and many other sources of income I could establish.
Lori gave of herself and knowledge that day to help me be stronger at what I do from marketing skills to the structure of my presentations and speeches. We covered so much in that one day I left prepared to take on the world. I highly recommend Lori to anyone looking to move their career to the next level in a positive, motivating environment. Lori was an inspiration to me and I’ve already used that inspiration for myself and my clients.” —Gretchen Sortzi, Motivational Speaker
Lori taught me to present with style and confidence and how to inspire
“Before I heard Lori Hanson on the stage at an event in Denver, I figured I’d develop my own speech for a conference at which I’d been asked to give the keynote. After all, I’d done a lot of public speaking over the years – at writer’s conferences, book signings, community events, and as the president of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in Colorado Springs. Surely I could take the step to the next level without help. But when I heard Lori speak, I was reminded of what a real professional sounded like. I knew I wanted to speak like that!
When I learned she was a speech coach, I didn’t hesitate to ask for her help, and I’m glad I did. Lori has taught me how to how to present with style and confidence and how to inspire. She’s advised me about finding venues that support my particular messages about mental health and also how to be successful selling my books. But most important about Lori—she has been in it with me, brainstorming, advising, using her creative knowhow—wanting the best out of me. Thanks to Lori, I am well on my way to being the professional speaker I need to be.”

Lori is a dynamic coach filled with a great deal of energy and commitment
Speaker building new business
“I heard Lori speak at a meeting of writers in Denver. I knew the talks I had given about my book did not meet my expectations and that I needed to focus on some specific strategies to take the marketing of my book to the next level. Lori has helped me do that in a very organized way in a short period of time. She is a dynamic coach filled with a great deal of energy and commitment to the task at hand.
She helped me tighten my speech so I am able to say what I want to say in a more effective and concise manner. Create letters to ask celebrities for endorsements. Learn effective methods requesting to speak at different organizations. Organize a booking process for speaking engagements. I highly recommend Lori for her skills and the dynamic way that she teaches what is important.”
