Describe for the judges the nominated individual's activities and accomplishments that supported women in business since the beginning of July last year (up to 525 words):

Dr. Angela Lauria, Founder & CEO of The Author Incubator is a bestselling author and coach to hundreds of award-winning authors. Her programs and coaching have helped entrepreneurs write, publish, and promote their books. Angela’s authors have been featured in media outlets including The O Network, MSNBC, Fox & Friends, The Today Show, Modern Bride, and Parents Magazine.

Dr. Angela’s exceptional value-based leadership is exemplified through recognitions and awards including being named the#8 “Inspirational Entrepreneur to Watch in 2017” by Entrepreneur Magazine,named the Empowerment Coach of the Year by the International Coaching Federation, having published over 300 books, and writing nearly a dozen herself – 3 on the art of writing, publishing and promoting books.

The authors of The Author Incubator are decorated with awards, accomplishments, and financial success through their books. For example, client Debbie Lazinsky wrote her book No Time to Lose on weight loss and finding confidence. No Time to Lose took her business from $3,500 a month to $25,000 a month within 90 days of her book launch. Debbie was featured in People Magazine and she appeared on Inside Edition and Long Island Naturally. In 10 months of working with Angela as her coach, Debbie was able to have her first 6-figure month, crossing the $100K/month barrier which fewer than 3% of coaches ever cross in July 2017.

Author Tami Stackelhouse used her book, The Fibromyalgia Coach, to go from a struggling 1-On-1 fibromyalgia coach tosold outcoaching practice andfounder of her own fibromyalgia coach training institute by publishing her book. She has coaches in 21 countries and has been able to increase her impact on the fibromyalgia community exponentially. Tami is a well-known industry speaker and was recently nominated for the WEGO HealthAwards.

Before coming to the Author Incubator, Tamara Arnold, author of My Kid is Driving Me crazy, had the idea that she would make her money from book sales, which isn’t the case. After working with Dr. Angela, she admits that had she not gotten the guidance she had received, she would have created a book that would have essentially be a “brain dump,” which wouldn’t have served anyone. Since publishing her book, her financial standing has improved accordingly, from being in debt prior to writing the book to now being able to make tens of thousands of dollars a month. Tamara began coaching with Angela in December of 2016. She made her first sale for just $1,000 16 days later. In July Tamara had her first $10,000 DAY and her first $50,000 month.

Debbie, Tami and Tamara’s success are only a few examples of the hundreds of accomplishments The Authors Incubator’s authors were able to achieve through Angela’s life changing coaching and mentorship.

What makes Angela different is that she focuses relentlessly on results that allow her clients to bring hope, healing and transformation in a bigger way than ever. Angela says the strategies and tactics she teaches make up 20% of her client’s success; but the mindset shifts she imparts create the 80% difference thatlead her clients to bethe very best.
