You want to own your life and increase your options for the future. These might include continuing to own and run your company, transferring it to your children or key employees, or selling to a third party. The way to do that is to get focused on where you want to take your business and put performance solutions and systems in place to get you there. My role is to provide you with proven tools to grow your own capabilities and company.
I’m a business coach, which means I’m all about helping you find your own inner compass, guiding you along the way and providing proven, simple systems to get you where you want to go quickly and efficiently. I offer coaching to leaders, accountability coaching to their teams, and customized presentations on a variety of leadership topics.
Speaking of speed, the fastest way to get started is to sign up for a free strategy session.

“To say I endorse Lauren Owen as a business consultant would be a gross understatement. It is closer to the truth to say that you will not find someone more qualified and able to meet your needs to take your business (and even yourself) to the next level. Thank you Lauren for all that you have done for me!”

After moving to Seattle to obtain my MBA in Organization Design, I went to work with the Seattle-King County Economic Development Council as an advocate for small business owners. I was a principal at a local consulting firm, based in Seattle, that conducted industry benchmark studies and financial management education for business owners, franchise systems and financial advisers around North American and Australia. While there, I developed an acclaimed DVD based-financial education program and formed several industry roundtable groups.
An east coast transplant, I ended up making my home in Seattle, where I now live on Queen Anne with my husband, Simon Siegl, who is a wine industry professional. We enjoy travel, the outdoors, the Puget Sound area and exploring new cultures around the world. Between Simon and myself we have three grown sons and two grandchildren.
