Why Live Excellence . . .
From a very early age, Laura Doughty was strongly influenced by her entrepreneurial parents. Being the oldest child, she wasted no time demonstrating her fierce sense of independence early on. She knew she was destined to live life on her terms, to pursue her calling and follow her passions. For Laura, excellence is a word that she feels defines her existence. It’s what motivates her to do more, give more, be more and hope for more. She feels it is her duty to strive for more . . . more of herself, more in others, more in humanity.
Strongly influenced by the entrepreneurial examples that surrounded her from birth, her mother was not only a third grade school teacher for 27 years, she also owned a bridal boutique and registry and her father, well, what didn’t he do?! His main passion was youth ministry, but he had many other passions he pursued, as well. In addition to his church work, his other businesses consisted of a printing/publishing company, screen printing company, bookstore, and hosting annual youth conventions in Gatlinburg, TN; plus he was a regular contributor/guest at other events and conventions, and to all of that, add his mission work in Russia and Poland. Even today, both her parents continue to reinvent themselves and take on new challenges.
“A quote that has resonated over my whole life, ‘To whom much is given, much is expected.’ Live Excellence is my way of paying it forward. Everyone deserves to know they have something amazing and unique that only they can give to this world!” – Laura Doughty
Excellence in Action . . .
For Laura, there are three fundamentals to excellence and they incorporate a complete approach – body, mind and spirit. To live excellence requires a discipline in being healthy – our body. Taking care of the vessel we were given to do the work that only we can do on this earth is not an option; it’s a duty.
When it comes to living life – our mind, continual growth and expansion are required to transform us into the excellence we are. When it comes to business, having a servants heart is at the core of service excellence and it’s what drives Laura when working with other entrepreneurs. Given her upbringing, it won’t surprise you that she’s also extremely passionate about encouraging entrepreneurship from an early age through her charity work and other programs.
Laura understands it not only takes money to make the world go around, it takes heart – our spirit. When we ignore our calling or have not discovered our purpose, our lives become stagnant and emotionally painful, even leading to dis-ease and sickness. We are meant to thrive and live a life full of passion. The pursuit of excellence breathes life into our lives igniting our spirit.
