Laura Humphreys is a successful businesswoman, business mentor and inspirational speaker. Her multi-award winning book Liber8 your Business comes directly from her own business journey. Laura went from a job as a secretary in a London advertising agency to owning her own agency and selling it to multi-national Ogilvy Group just nine years later. She started this business with nothing - no clients, no staff, just a windowless office with no natural light and no running water. When she sold it, it was billing in excess of $15 million and had been named Agency of the Year. The selling of her first business brought Laura financial independence, which meant she was in a position where she could choose how she spent her time.
Laura then co-founded Pet Angels, a highly systemised award winning pet care business, with a fully automated online search and booking facility that minimised admin requirements to the point where the owners only had to work 10 hours a week. This business sold to a competitor after just six years.
Laura is passionate about helping small business owners create a valuable, scalable and ultimately saleable asset - not just a job! She gives regular talks to business groups and mentors business owners about creating freedom from business. Laura's first book, Liber8 your Business is her entrepreneurial response to the need for a practical guide to planning and building a business that will set you financially free.
