Want words that boost your buzz and bring the cha-ching? I'll help.
If you’re an entrepreneur, small company, hobbyist, or Komodo dragon who needs writing that won’t put people to sleep — and you do need it, if you want them to stick around, give you money, and tell the world about you — I can help you with that.
(Why would a Komodo dragon need help with writing? Because Komodo dragons are notoriously shitty writers.)
Quite simply, I help you write copy that sounds like you talk and makes people want what you sell.
Let's go a step further: I help you find the words, pathways, and courage/ nerve/ chutzpah to make your business a 100% expression of your personality...so you're getting paid to be you.
My roster of private clients (which I no longer take) has included major TV networks like Bravo, HBO, and NBC, and many online biggies, like Brooke Castillo, Amy Porterfield, and the one and only Marie Forleo.
Together, Marie and I scripted her weekly online show, Marie TV. It’s Webby-honored, and has over 48 million views. Best of all, we partnered to create The Copy Cure, a copywriting course to help you find your voice…and sell your anything.
But you don't have to be a internet-famous to work with me. Or famous-famous. Scroll down for ways for you to get your copy-and-content learnin' on.

Laura is PURE genius.
Her writing, wit, and humor are a gift to the world. She is beyond amazing at creative brainstorming and has helped me shape so so so many ideas that have become hugely profitable. She’s simply the BEST and I cannot recommend her highly enough! - Marie Forleo
My about page has become one of the best ice breaker tools for potential clients ever.
They love feeling like they got a sneak-peek into who I am, and often ask follow-up questions during calls that lead to the best heartfelt conversations, and ultimately lots of sales! What I really love about it, is how Laura broke the page down into fun, conversational, bite-sized bits of info... geee-nius!!!
- Elsa Isaac, stylist
Laura's the best for anyone trying to find their voice!
Since working with Laura, I've been featured in New York Magazine, ELLE, Business Insider, and so many more. Several posts (that started out as newsletters) have gone viral and been viewed millions of times. Most importantly, I've built a community around a cause I care about in a way that feels easy and real.
- Katherine Schafler, LMHC
I fell in love with writing again.
I consider myself a decent writer. Working with Laura made the process easy, fun and effective. It made me fall in love with writing again and helped make me a better writer.
- Gina Gomez, business strategist and advisor
My favorite email copywriter!
And I'm not alone. Laura has been dominating affiliate partner launches, beating out the famous name stalwarts of our industry, by out-converting them in a big way. Her writing style is inventive, and (sometimes painfully) honest, and hilarious.
- Kevin Rogers, Copy Chief

I re-read and almost do a little dance! It feels like me. It’s easy to forget that being yourself is the best thing for your business. Authenticity = profitability. What Laura gets you to do —reveal the real you — makes you rich!.

Laura makes it easy!
Laura somehow manages to make (non-sucky) copywriting feel easy, and her I love that her training is so ridiculously practical that it literally makes you a better writer almost immediately.
- Ruth Soukup, Ruth Soukup, author & podcaster, Do It Scared
More transformative than the giants of copywriting.
In 2016, I became interested in copy. I took classes, read a lot of Gary Halbert, hand copied 50 or so adverts from that same decade, even read Ogilvy On Advertising. None of this was as transformative as your 60-Minute Makeover combined with reading your emails. Take that David Ogilvy!
- Courtney Kirschbaum, career strategist
Laura cured my imposter syndrome!
Everybody who is writing, who has imposter syndrome about writing, needs to know about Laura.
- Amy Perkins, podcaster and coach
Along with Laura's incredible ideas and wordsmithing, working together gave me greater confidence in 1) my own writing and 2) my offering. I’m wicked happy I made this investment in her work.
- Farideh Ceasar, musician and launch strategist
Talking Shrimp® Rates and Packages
The hourly copywriting fees that became an online tourist destination.
CAREFUL! You might be about to tease yourself. My 1:1 consults are currently off the market. I’ve left the old services page up purely for reading pleasure, if that's your bag, or as inspiration to freelance writers wondering, "How much can I charge for my copywriting services?" "Should I show my prices on my website?" and "How does price anchoring work?" (Also, since I wrote a couple of big articles featuring my income as a writer, the page gets so many looky-loos, I should install a café and gift shop.)
If you're dying to work with me personally, consider some of the options above. (While they're still on offer!)
