Thank you for stopping by. I’m Laura Kinker – business development coach, designer, writer, photographer, akaschic pracitioner and creative soul. I love to create, whether it’s helping people to design and launch their businesses, designing printables to make your life easier or writing contemporary romance novels.
I am the creator and founder of Illuminations Boutique (an online spiritual marketplace and resource), Untangled Life (an online collaboration) and the Fantastic Girls Club (supporting creative women). You can find my photography on Fine Art America.
I believe in going after your dreams (no matter what they may be) because I know you can make them happen. It may not always look like how you imagined it, but most of the time (if you’re open) it’ll turn out even better.
I am excited to provide creative startup solopreneurs (think artists, writers, coaches) with guidance and support as they launch (or relaunch) their businesses, making them more smooth, less painful and way less overwhelming.
I offer clients a full range of services to help them successful launch their businesses, including business development coaching, web development coaching as well as website design and maintenance. I bring more than 20 years graphic and web design experience along with 30 years editing and over 10 years coaching experience to every project.
Let me know how I can help you make your business launch a success. I look forward to working with you.

Spring is the perfect time for renewal and revitalization. As we begin to shake off the cold dark winter months and open ourselves up to longer warmer days, we automatically feel a renewed sense of hope and optimism that we can bring into our everyday life. Here are...
I don't know about you but I don't like feeling stuck and confused. I have spent a long time feeling frustrated, confused and like I wasn't getting anywhere despite doing a huge amount of work. I felt lost and defeated. And I seriously didn't want to feel that way...
I'm a big believer in being true to yourself. I mean, who else do you want to be? Whenever I try to be something/someone I'm not, it comes out all wrong and makes connecting with others nearly impossible. For example, today I went to a networking lunch. I was a bit...
Laura provides practical, empowering, and realistic suggestions to enhance one’s life and relationships. She personalizes her advise to each client’s needs. She is creative, inspiring, and comforting. Also, she helps me get to the answers myself so that I am more likely to utilize new skills and techniques so I can help myself. How empowering!Gwen H
I had an insightful session. Thank you Laura. You opened my record and found a lot of interesting information for me that I will use as inspiration and guidance this fall. I won your session in a raffle and it was a great reminder how important it is to listen to the small nudges the universe is giving us to help us along. I did not think about opening my records but with your loving guidance and the universe picking YOU for me, it all happened in perfect synchronicity. Thank you for all the AHA experiences you provided. I am very grateful.Ranni P
My life coach, Laura, has helped me to formulate my goals, focus on my passions, and motivate me into action. In my personal and work relations, she has allowed me to verbalize my frustrations and helped me develop tools to cope with situations and, as a result, I feel empowered to handle problems as they arise.
Having a life coach has shown me how to develop skills to handle myself and problems in a professional and competent way.
We have worked together as life coach and client for 18 months. The skills I have developed in that time have resulted in accomplishing a long awaited Associates Degree, pursuing a passion to design gardens for municipalities, and battled and won a bout with cancer.
I believe without having a life coach working with me, I would not have grown to where I am now. In the past, I felt stuck and unable to really change my situation. As a wife and mother, I felt my life was of service to my family, who I value and who are a very important part of my life. Laura has encouraged me to set my sights on what I want for myself. Perhaps my family may benefit even more by observing my changes. My hope is that they will view me as a woman who has firmly set her values and formulated her goals. For myself, I am living up to my expectations. Thank you, Laura.Jannie B
It has been so GREAT to work with Laura on my deep seated relationship blockers. In the last four months, I have shifted from being present to the ‘man being missing from life’ to living a life in the present moment, trusting in the big scheme of things and God’s plan and knowing that when and if it is supposed to happen it will! Until then I am enjoying the ride.
It is truly such a miracle for me because I have always felt something was missing even when I was with a man. Thank you to Laura for her steady and powerful coaching….I really have appreciated it and would recommend a sample session to try her out to anyone who is serious about shifting their perspectives and lives with regards to relationships!Tracy L
What I got most from the reading was insight on how to handle a situation that had been unfolding for a few months. It helped me to realize something that I had been overlooking in what I was doing. I immediately applied my realization to some work I was doing that same afternoon and saw got some long, sought after results.Cathy M
