Design Your Fabulous Future With Lara Young

Design Your Fabulous Future With Lara Young

Hi guys, welcome back to the Home Staging Show, where we talk about all things real estate, home staging and styling your home to live or to sell. I hope you had enjoyed the last episode with Laura Gaskill on mindful clutter clearing, the first part of our 3-part series on Mindset. On today’s show, I interviewed Lara Young, who’s an expert on goal setting, setting your intentions and designing the fabulous life that you want.

Lara’s a life and business architect for women just like you. Her specialty is creating systems and processes that fail-proof your fabulous future. She believes that the power is within you, it always has been – she’s really good at bringing it to light. And after today’s interview, I really agree with that as well. During her 20+ years of experience as a change manager, retreat facilitator and life + business transition coach, she has helped more than 2000 people transform their lives. She had researched the four pillars of resilience and created programs to help people to define and live lives they could only dream were possible. She has qualifications in the Law of Attraction, Neuro-linguistic Programming, and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). In her work, she also incorporates Hypnotherapy and Time Line Therapy for good measure.

I’m really excited about today’s show because Lara had shared some really great and easy to do techniques that’re really going to help you shifting your mindset and get things done. I know the process of home staging and getting your home ready can be very overwhelming and a lot of times, life just gets in the way and you can’t do everything you had set out to do. Lara had given some great steps in this episode about setting the right goals and attaching to actions to your intentions so that you’ll get things done. Lara had covered a lot in this episode and I actually listened to the episode twice when I was editing so I was able to take down a lot of notes for the worksheet, that you’ll be able to download on the show notes.
