Hey there!

My name is Lou – Business Strategy Expert, Digital Marketing Coach, Customer & Employee Retention Enthusiast, AHRI Award Winner & creator of Live What You Love Business Coaching where I help powerful women turn their idea into their own business so they can start transitioning from their 9-5 FOREVER!!

You see, I believe that we deserve to create and live a life that we CHOOSE!

Where we wake on a Monday morning excited about the week ahead or stay up late on a week night watching Netflix & not having to worry about being tired at work the next day.

I believe we all deserve to have the “time” to focus on what really matters in life, such has our health, our family, our friends.. & I believe we deserve to choose our financial worth, not have it set for us by someone at the top of the corporate ladder.

Setting our own financial goals where we work in our own businesses, focused on lifestyle & financial abundance, not becoming stuck in the corporate rat race because we have bills to pay & mouths to feed!

Above all else, I believe that we, as women, truly deserve to have it all.

To feel proud of our career ambitions, to chase our dreams, leaving a belief & legacy for generations to come.

I believe we can have our dream partner & the family where not only do we financially contribute but more importantly be a present partner & mother as our children grow up.

I believe we deserve to choose when we want to work & from where. Having the opportunity to explore the world, drink cocktails on exotic beaches & spread our mission to those for lifetimes to come.

And… I believe if you are reading this, it is not by accident. Instead by fate/pure luck or whatever you want to call it & that you too believe that life is to “Live What You Love”.

So, what are you waiting for?

Get in touch now, I'd LOVE to talk to you!

Louise Stephens - Empowering Women To Turn An Idea Into Their Own Business & Start Transitioning Out Of Their 9-5 Forever!

Louise Stephens - Creator of Live What You Love Business Coaching

is both a marketing, business strategy & retention expert helping women to turn their idea into their own business & start transitioning out of their 9-5 by empowering them to become the courageous and confident leaders they truly are!


For just shy of 9 years Louise worked for Australia's Largest Travel Retailer. Progressing from front end retail, into leadership positions & then finally finding her passion as a career coach.


After analyzing an already successful business model, she identified, implemented and drove key business strategies to improve employee retention, overall sales performance and general health and well-being among the employees she coached nationally.

As a result, in 2015, Louise led her team to not only being recognized but winning a National AHRI Award for Talent Management.

After investing in a start up business & struggling to maintain her high expectations in both, in late 2016 Louise left her corporate career behind to embark on a new adventure.

Within 24 hours of celebrating her farewell, Louise came to see that life wasn't all that she believed it to be.

Immediately recognizing that she was in an abusive relationship with her business mentor now business partner, she found the courage to walk away & start anew.

Medically unfit to work, suffering severe anxiety, depression, paranoia & social withdrawal, Louise lay on the floor of her apartment vowing to do whatever it took to heal herself & turn her passion for business coaching into her own business.


Spending most of 2017 homeless, couch surfing between family & friends in both Australia & New Zealand Louise was determined not to give up! & developed her coaching toolkit with formal education, investment in a business mentor & commitment to continuous personal growth. 

In November 2017 Louise returned to Melbourne, where her business continued to go from strength to strength as well as focus on what is important to her; family & friends.


Recognising there was ONE thing missing, her parents & extended family in New Zealand. In March 2019 she relocated to Waihi, a place she now calls home.


Passionate about business & helping  women succeed, she now offers both service & e-commerce start ups from all over the globe assistance with channeling their inner passion, launching & growing their businesses whilst creating the lifestyle they truly deserve
