About Lori

Award-Winning Author, Coach, Motivational Speaker

Lori Hanson spent thirty years climbing the ladder in Corporate America, and although she enjoyed financial success and loyal clients, it was never enough. When health issues led to a new journey that brought healing from bulimia and the addictive behaviors she used to numb out, she wrote her first book. Then she left corporate to pursue her passion of being a motivational speaker.

A Performance Coach for Business Women, she founded Learn2Balance and inspires female executives and business owners through her transformational coaching programs and women’s retreats. Much more than a life or business coach, Lori integrates holistic nutrition and mindset to build the foundation for success. Clients learn to unclutter their lives, find their voice and lead their “pack(s)” confidently.

Now the author of four books, Lori shares personal stories and teaches strategies for heart-centered leadership in her latest book, Stress Survival Kit™ for the Alpha Female.  Lori has appeared on radio and television programs internationally, has been featured in Essence, Wellness Women 40 and Beyond, New Living Magazine, AFLV Connections, Wellsphere.com, and numerous other publications including her monthly newspaper column in Santa Clarita Valley Signal to bring awareness to the risks of overloaded living.

Lori speaks for women’s conferences, corporations, wellness events, management and sales meetings. She tackles the “guilt trip” topics and makes it easier to laugh at life and feel gratitude for where you’re at.
