Laura Berman Fortgang’s professional life is anchored by her international reputation as a pioneer with over 25 years of experience in personal coaching.

She shares what inspired her to write her books and discusses how you can learn to reinvent yourself and uncover the next layers of your identity.


“My life was a rag-to-riches story of walking into an unproven profession with complete commitment, knowing how it had changed my life.”

“I like to define acting as becoming, not pretending.”

“When I least expected it, showing up 100% and being committed to it 100% made all these opportunities come to me.”

“When you are feeling the need to reinvent, it should be about peeling it back the layers and getting to the next truer version of yourself.”

“I am a constant reinvention.”

“You’re constantly having to reinvent. But for me, it is always getting truer and truer to yourself.”

“I’m energy that causes change.”

“I constantly am looking for how to keep things fresh, stay relevant. What’s the next iteration, what’s going on with me, is usually what’s going on with the people that I help.”
