Improved My Voice, Pomoted to Superintendent
“I needed permission and to see how I was getting in my own way of speaking up confidently. Not only has Lori 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.
Being stuck is probably way worse than than any uncomfortable place Lori put me in because I was so frustrated. And now I’ve just promoted to the first female Superintendent of my school district—and I’m headed into it confidently and comfortably because of the work I did with Lori!
This is the best financial investment I’ve ever made in my life!
I highly recommend Lori’s coaching to help others to become better leaders and find balance to create their best life.”
School Superintendent, District 300
Clarity, Shifting Deeply, Finding Peace
“What I love about working with Lori is her ability to uncover what’s always been right in front of you (but you haven’t been able to clearly see it).
She’s direct in her approach, like a sibling that wants to shake you strait, but doesn’t have to in order to get you where she’s trying to lead. Each time we’ve worked together I’ve walked away with a sense of clarity, or a level of peace and connectedness that had been lacking prior to our meeting.
The shifts she facilitates are simple at face value but they are impactful and take root deep into your being. If you are open to stepping into what the next level of yourself looks like, even the parts that have been scary in the past, then working with Lori should be the next stop on your journey.”

Recipe for Success
“If you are ready to get out of your own way and see the success you have dreamed of Lori is the person to work with! I have had my Mortgage teams work with her, had her on podcast, and I have personally coached with her and every time I am amazed at how she pulls more out of me and others. This has only led to more SUCCESS! All I can say is if you are willing to be real Lori is a person that can help you achieve goals no matter how big!”

Faced My Fears…Promotion Followed
“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.
Over the course of 9 months, I de-cluttered 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.”

Transformed My Life
“I have been working with Lori for just over a year and the skills she has taught me have truly been life changing. In July of last year I was in the middle of a divorce and had just received a questionable review from my boss; I had received excellent reviews for the 9 years prior and his ending sentence included a note that we were in a “state of discord.” I was frustrated, he was frustrated, and a job that I am passionate about was on the line.
With honest conversation and true reflection Lori guided me to a new approach; toward my boss, coworkers and others. I was able to step back, revise my default habits (pressing the point, maybe a little sarcasm) and reestablish healthy relationships. I learned that it was not necessary to be the loudest voice in the room, but often a whisper is heard more clearly.
Over the course of the last year, and after several successful conversations with my boss, he recently shared we were in the best place we have been in my 10 years on the job. These personal insights and changes to my approach, that Lori guided me to, have made all the difference at work and have also significantly improved my personal relationships as well.
Lori is outstanding at holding a mirror to truly see how one is being perceived and guiding adjustments to longstanding habits to be perceived as a collaborative partner.”
Discovered My Potential
“Lori assisted me in the process of discovering who I really am, and working to my highest potential. Since beginning my work with Lori my income has increased 30%, I have realized travel and adventure goals, and feel each day totally fulfilled with joy and happiness. I now know using my belief system, coupled with leveraging tools Lori introduced me to, anything is possible.”
“I am still buzzing from our conversation yesterday. I am so grateful that you were willing to spend so much time with me and help me visualize my dreams. Thank you so much, as I said and truly mean, that was bar far one of the best coaching conversations I have had. And was more powerful than any counseling I have ever received! You are truly a gift!!”

Releasing My Limitations
“Lori inspired me to let go of self-limitations and focus on my true objectives and things that would make me feel fulfilled. She brings a sense of calm and clarity – every time you speak or listen to her you leave feeling more positive.”

Started my business, exceeded goals—bought a home in six months
“I just put a contract in for a home for me and the children with a closing date of of December 15 by 3:30 PM. The 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.”
One Day Intensive is Worth It’s Weight in Gold!
“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 coaching session. 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.”

From Alcoholic to Confident in Myself
“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 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 my plan with eating balanced meals I had a foundation to work on toward recovery.
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, 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 a while 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. 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 an outstanding coach. I highly recommend her.”
Stressed out—to 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 thing 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.
That’s when Lori asked if I was interested in trying something different. I was skeptical at first… It wasn’t long till I noticed that my approach to 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.“
Business Owner, Husband, Father
Shifted My Thinking
“Lori is motivating, genuine and a lot of fun to work with! I had the pleasure of coaching with Lori recently. It was my first time with this kind of coaching experience, and I was so impressed with how well she directed our conversations through the topics I needed help with the most.
She helped me shift my thinking towards the direction of success and I couldn’t be more grateful. I used the advice she gave right away and totally noticed a difference in my mindset, goals and increased success of my business. I highly suggest working with Lori if you are looking for some career and life direction”
Business Owner, Wife, Mom
De-cluttered Mentally & Emotionally
“A few months ago Lori and I had our initial introductory call. By the end of our first 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 de-clutter 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 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!”
Business Owner, Wife, Mom
Confidence Has Grown
“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.”

BRAIN BALANCE – CLEANSE
Cleanse Brings Clarity & Focus
Everything is So Clear Now!
“I just completed Lori’s Cleanse for Clarity. And I’m really in a great place! I look forward to my green smoothie and protein shake, and my cravings are gone. Everything is so clear now! I feel healthier in my mind and body.
I was miserable—in my clothes, had brain fog and it was hard to focus. Now it’s wonderful waking up, I feel better and my clothes fit. This was exactly what I needed! A reset to a healthy diet and mindset.”
Sales Leader, Mom
Clarity on Decision Making
“The month I was on the cleanse and taking the brain chemistry supplements Lori suggested was a great month.
I felt a lot of clarity in my career direction and even fired my marketing company, which was a big move! It felt like my brain was working on all cylinders. I can assume it was a combination of cleansing my body and proper supplementation.
I highly recommend the cleanse if you’re looking to think more clearly and make some big, or small, decisions!”
Easier than I Thought to Change my Habits
“Lori coached me through her nutritional 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 change.”
When I Prioritize Taking Care of Myself it Helps the Whole Family
“Before the cleanse, I was bloated, tired and had indigestion a lot. I was also 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!

Discovered My Sugar Addiction
“I had been sick with an ongoing cold that would not go away. And I was still trying to tackle a difficult situation at work. My stress level was as high as it had ever been. I knew that it was time for a change. I remembered seeing Lori speak where I worked, and decided to take her up on her offer for coaching.
I was looking for any tools from Lori to help my stress level. I was surprised to hear her say that we were going to focus on nutrition. But at that point I was up for anything. So I agreed to follow her nutritional plan. After a few weeks of the nutritional supplements I felt like my happy glow was starting to come back.
For the first time in probably 5 years, I started to feel like myself again. I was remembering the positive side of my personality and my outlook was changing.
The next step for me was to do Lori’s cleanse. I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to keep this up for three weeks. But I made it through the first week, and my cravings started to subside. My taste for food was changing. I was enjoying the simple flavors of food not masked by sauces or added sugar. People at work were starting to notice the changes. Now as a benefit of the cleanse I’m down a size and have been pulling out clothes that I haven’t worn in a couple of years! While I still encounter stressful situations at work, I feel like I have the energy and enthusiasm to meet them.”
People Noticed How Radiant I Looked
“I did the cleanse while I was coaching with Lori and lost eight of the ten pounds I wanted to lose on my cleanse. 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.”

Seeing the Correlation Between Food and My Body – HUGE
“When Lori suggested starting with a ‘Cleanse’ like many of us I wanted to push the idea to the side, anxious to start on ‘Goal Setting’. During my cleanse, I had to work extra hours, at one point being awake for 30 hours with only 3 hours of sleep.
What this showed me is through adversity I could plan/prep my meals, finding it easier to ‘BE’ than fight everything. I choose to follow the protocol; I choose to adjust the eating to fit my schedule to remain on target for the end goal. It would have been easy to give up and say this isn’t the right time…but then when in life is ever the right time? It’s funny because it was recognized by members of the team, I work with. I could, just show up and be positive despite lack of sleep and work demands.
The next big ‘ AHA’ came in week 4 with the intro of wheat and rice. Seeing the correlation between what I was eating and how it impacted my body and emotions was huge. I had never seen the direct correlation prior to this.
The remarkable differences for me are:
- Loosing 4″ in my waist line
- Subsiding of abdominal pain
- Ringing in ears from allergies was intermittent to fully gone
- Journaling pointed to more positive than negative times & the negativity was shorter in duration
- The ability to speak out for what I wanted and needed
- Feeling free and empowered
The icing on the cake is I needed the “cleanse” on Valentine’s Day when I realized, “I love and approve of myself.” It gave me a jump start on insights into my emotional and physical being. The journaling provided where Lori and I would need to focus. It provided the roadmap for the start of my goal setting, revealing things I knew about myself, and things I had managed to push deep down not wanting to acknowledge.
What the ‘Cleanse’ provided for me was a jump start on insights into my emotional and physical being.
The journaling provided where Lori and I would need to focus. If you will, it provided the roadmap for the start of the Goal setting. Revealing things I knew about myself, and things I had managed to push deep not wanting to acknowledge. Twenty eight days highlighted for me the control and stability I was gaining, along with forming good habits for the future. Especially, with an intense schedule most of us would not have wanted to attempt during a Cleanse. But then isn’t that life. 28 days highlighted for me the control and stability I was gaining, along with forming good habits for the future. If you are thinking if you should start the cleanse, I recommend it!”

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 because of my eating disorder.
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.”
Taught Me to Present with Style and Confidence
“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 speaker 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 know how—wanting the best out of me. Thanks to Lori, I am well on my way to being the professional speaker I need to be.”

Dynamic Coach Filled with Energy and Commitment
“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:
1 – tighten my speech so I am able to say what I want to say in a more effective and concise manner
2 – create letters to ask celebrities for endorsements
3 – learn effective methods requesting to speak at different organizations
4 – organize a booking process for speaking engagements.
I highly recommend Lori for her skills and the dynamic way that she teaches what is important.”
