‘Failure is just another chance to get curious.’
Introverts sometimes feel the need to change themselves to fit in, but Laura Payne-Stanley suggests that being true to yourself can open up a brand-new world. In fact, curious introverts can leverage that quality, adapting existing tactics to make the world work for them.
Laura is an NLP Coach and Hypnotherapist who works with quiet entrepreneurs, coaches, consultants and creatives to build successful and sustainable empires. Known as ‘The Velvet Hammer,’ she employs a kind but firm approach to holding her clients accountable to achieve their ambitions. Laura has perfected the art of harnessing her introversion to create a thriving business, and she is on a mission to help other entrepreneurs do the same.
Laura became an entrepreneur when both she and her fiancé were sacked—weeks before their wedding. In a honeymoon suite on Key West, Laura made the decision to have control moving forward and create success on her own terms. She started the blog French Wedding Style as a side hustle, and the business grew into a full-time gig with a social media reach of 500K. As fellow entrepreneurs learned about Laura’s background in marketing, they started asking for advice—and Desired Life Mentoring was born. Today she coaches the Introvert Biz Growth audience around the importance of establishing a diverse portfolio, the characteristics that make introverts good entrepreneurs, and strategies to help you hit the ground running every morning. Listen and learn how Laura’s insatiable curiosity has led to her success as an introverted entrepreneur!

I’ve started this community because I saw introverts with successful online businesses all around me, and I thought it was time to let the world know that introverts have a magic touch when it comes to business, especially an online business. I also wanted to create a safe sanctuary for us introverts to hang out, and be ourselves, in our own gentle and quiet way. I hope you will join us on this journey.
