Changing lives by empowering people to unapologetically live authentic lives and celebrate the unique gifts they offer the world!

“Self discovery is the start of a transformative and authentic life.”

— Lora Hayes



I’m Lora, an unwavering optimist with a limitless curiosity for the human experience. I love engaging with family and friends and making people feel seen and heard through speaking, training, and podcasting.

If I’m not having coffee dates with interesting and inspiring humans, I’m dreaming of ways to elevate others or dancing in the kitchen…probably avoiding cooking and doing the dishes!
