Hey, friend! I'm Laylee. I’m a photographer, encourager, cat mom, and bloody mary enthusiast. I believe in putting people first—always. Some people might say I use too many abbreves or drink too many cups of coffee, but I just don’t think that’s possible.

As an educator, my mission is to empower you to reach your goals in business and in life—because I believe you can have both. Our businesses have the longevity of our lives: it's up to us to create businesses that sustain and inspire us every day (not just at some non-existent finish line).

Wanna connect in person? Oh good, me too. I'd love to see you at one of my in-person events for creatives! Join me at The Next Level Retreat so I can hug you in person and help you chase after your big dreams for your life and your business.

Let's get to know each other!

A bit more about the host...
