Episode #3: Feeling the fear & doing it anyways with Laura C. Cannon

Posted on Posted in Interviews

On our third episode of The Travelpreneur Club, I had was honored to sit down and chat with Laura C. Cannon.

Laura is an author, speaker, and coach. Her newest book titled “The Conscious Entrepreneur” teaches you how to harness your unique gifts and the power of your own consciousness to maximize your satisfaction of your business and your life. The book is a great resource for all those that feel lost in their life, giving you the necessary direction to achieving your highest potential. You can currently pick up the Kindle version on Amazon, with the physical copy hitting shelves in July.

Along with her new book, Laura has more than 15 years under her belt as a professional speaker, where she seamlessly ties together the life topics of business and spirituality to drive home her informative and engaging presentations.

When she’s not speaking, writing, or coaching her clients, Laura enjoys teaching Yoga and officiating weddings as a reverend.

Although Laura is not completely location-independent at this time, she is building her business to give her the necessary freedom and control, to live a life of travel.
