How Can You Out Love Your Competitors?
We love people first, and then we worry about the rest.
Motives, then movement.
We help people love people and make money doing what they love. We help people outlove their competitors. Love isn’t fluffy, love means meeting real needs and solving real problems, love means discerning what people want and finding ways to give it to them.
We love on all levels, we love the companies we serve first through our non bloated business model, and through our process allow them to figure out the best ways to love their customers.
We hear a lot about a human centric approach and human centered design; we believe these are all just fancy terms for loving your customer more than all the others in your market.
Forget about competitors, forget about “the market”, what about just loving people? What about just literally walking a day in their shoes and feeling what they feel, and meeting and solving those needs and problems through what you offer? And then communicating it to them how you would want to be communicated with? It’s not rocket science, but it is hard to do.
Because to do it, you first have to feel, then you have to discern, then you have to simplify - and that's why we're here, we love walking through this journey with people and companies.
Through the SW process, you will:
1. Build an innovation machine within your team, so you can continuously ask the right questions, together, to keep up with the constantly changing landscape.
2. Fill in all of the missing pieces to your strategy, bridge any gaps that exist in what you offer, how you offer it, where you sell it, who you sell it to, and how the ecosystem around you can help you move to the next level.
3. Grow your business and have a map to maintain that growth.
We all need clarity. Once you know your strategy - your company will grow. Companies that understand their strategy from a people-loving lens win. Schedule your call and let's get started on building your map. Why? Because There are people waiting to work with you, they just need to be told what it is, why they can't live without it, where they can reach you, when the timing is right, and how they'll experience what you offer.

We often rely on marketing companies to generate our message without deeply understanding who we're serving and how we can best reach them through a strategy first.
The strategy work that we do is the precursor to any marketing, branding, and channel development.
We help companies understand not only who they serve, but the most effective channels, partnerships and ecosystems that they are a part of. This builds new paths to revenue. This puts companies on the map.
Do you know where you're going and why you're headed there? Do you have a solid future map for your company? That's why we're here - to help you create the map.
Why We're Different
Working with Lauren completely changed my business and has taken it to another level! She gave me the framework I needed to grow our company and guided me with a step by step action plan to execute my vision. The process was incredibly well-planned and targeted to our needs. Whether you are savvy or a novice entrepreneur, working with Lauren is invaluable. I am so grateful for her knowledge and insight.
As an entrepreneur, it’s easy to spend most of your time working in your business rather than on your business. The Storywork process is fun and very insightful. Each working session I gained clarity and was able to put the perspectives I learned into practice - immediately. Lauren’s guidance and ability to ask the right questions, and dig beneath the years of data we had, gave me the accountability I needed to incorporate our “why” into every layer of the brand.
Lauren genuinely considers who you are, and makes incredibly intuitive recommendations for small changes that yield big results.
StoryWork enabled incredible growth for me, which has had more impact than I can express.
How Much Does This Cost?
How much is lack of clarity on the future map of your business costing you? How many potential customers are out there waiting to be captured but can't because your business in operating in a red ocean full of competitors? How many people are passing up on your offerings because they haven't been clarified or don't meet their deepest needs? There is a cost associated with each of these factors, and there isn't time to wait.
New revenue streams and solutions to problems are waiting, let's figure it out together.
