"Urs and Lauren helped us as business partners and spouses to become better equipped to deal with
communication issues. They were able to ask questions of us individually and together, then get right
to the heart of the problem. Then as a team they helped us formulate possible solutions. They were not
afraid of asking the hard questions, or pinpointing our short comings- yet always in a positive way.
They did their research on our business and our profession and were extremely well versed in both.
They helped us to overcome some problems that had been neglected due to our not wanting to deal with them.
I would seek their help again and feel comfortable that they could help us through other difficult situations.
Sarah Altland, Whale Tail Pharmacy
"When I was challenged with the demands of a growing business, Urs taught me to improve my leadership style and my time management skills, focusing on my business priorities without sacrificing my life style goals. Not just through chat - but through real skill-building exercises. Always cool, always clear, and always challenging, Urs never let me off the hook. 'I am the voice of your goals. Not good enough Barb.' Just when I needed it. A great listener and insightful coach, Urs helped me achieve my peak performance."
Barbara Carper, CEO Profit Soup
“I have known Lauren for about 5 years. When we first met, she was the facilitator of our industry peer group. I hired Lauren on a more personal level this summer to help me with a very crucial business transition. Since I have been preparing for this transition for about 8 years, I did not want to leave anything to chance and risk the whole thing falling apart. I entrusted Lauren to help keep me on task, develop a cash flow projection for my new business, help me write my business plan, and most importantly help prepare me to own my own business. Every task I assigned to Lauren was completed promptly and on time or even early. She remembered to do things I had forgotten that I had asked of her. The end result (several months later) finds me with a completed (and i must say excellent) business plan, an ACCURATE cash flow projection, a business partner in line (that I did not plan on but is a real bonus to my situation), and a bank that is ready and eager to loan me the start up money needed to facilitate this change. I entered our consulting relationship already knowing Lauren to be a woman of integrity as a financial expert. What I didn't know is what a task master she was and how much more prepared I would be for my future duties just for having worked with her. 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!” John Carter, CEO, Jack Lewis Jewelers

Her compassionate approach to dealing with family owned business issues that many would avoid is testament to her abilities as a coach. I highly recommend Lauren to assist any family owned business in ownership transition.” Bill Letendre, Vice President, Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA)
