By now I hope we can all agree that Valentine’s Day is, well, a little bit silly.The last time I stressed out over this alleged holiday was in fifth grade, when the printer ran out of ink in the middle of printing cards for my classmates.Man, they really drill in the message early with this nonsense: Maybe that’s why dating as an adult so often feels like a class we’re flunking. With rare exception, dating is considered a pain in the ass, but a necessary hurdle if you want to advance to the next romantic level.
Laureli Shimayo has a brilliantly insightful and intuitive mind together with an engaging and present heart.
She’s ready to provide plentiful resources to support you being amazingly effective and joyful in your business, relationships and life – so you thrive. She has worked for herself and in entrepreneurial organizations since 2001.

Laureli has extensive experience in dating, particularly online dating, plus history with marriage and the decision-making process to divorce. She eventually realized her favorite subject and passion was people – understanding their motivations and behavior and using this awareness to facilitate making things work.
