Laura Bechard

I believe business owners want to reap the benefits of a successful business to live and enjoy the life they want to live.  I don’t believe people go into business to  “buy themselves a job”, work all the time, or lose their personal life and health.

 I use the Forzani Business Coaching program developed from the business and life experiences of people just like you and me:  business owners.  Our programs include 1-1 coaching or group coaching through academies & workshops.   I give business owners simple business concepts, tools and strategies to implement and make routine in their business.  One at a time, new impactful activities implemented in any business will lead to improved results: increased profits, decreased time or reduced stress.   I help business owners identify the key measures to track in their business as we work together to 1) build a predictably profitable business that 2) is successful without them.

My husband and I have 4 adult children, have travelled extensively around North America and the globe, own and operate the family farm and developed rewarding professional careers along the way.  We earned the life we want to live.  You can too.

My Experience:

·      30 years experience as a producer in agriculture – commodity inventory management, capital financing, cash flow management, succession planning, family business, building and understanding financials

·      15 years experience in rental property management

·      Certified Forzani Business Coach, Certified General Accountant, MBA

·      30 years experience in training and development, teaching, workshop facilitation, mentoring and coaching, ROI measurement, metrics and scorecards

·      Experience leading and supporting change – systems implementation, adoption of systems, processes, routines and compliance

·      Expertise in time / attention management

My passion is to support business owners in achieving their vision for life and using their business as a way to realize that vision.  If you want to get THERE, let’s get started today!
