Because competition is fierce and you need an advantage  

to achieve your next level in business….faster.

Clients Include

Who’s Joyce Layman

Most tell you where they are instead of where they started. As for me, I’m a former wallflower in the world of business networking. Speaking in public was my second biggest fear, and I was stuck on the proverbial couch just like Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory fans can relate). Then I made a BIG shift.

I am an entrepreneur, podcast host, and referred to by many as a walking LinkedIn. If I told you I deliver information through keynote speaking, professional development training and business coaching (along with publishing two books), you might put me into the typical buckets, but clients will tell you that the work I do is far from typical.  My passion is inspiring people to step out of their current habits and into new opportunities that are already surrounding them. I leverage my extensive experience in the science of mindset and the art of business connections to help my clients create an advantage over their counterparts and their competition. More than motivation, I’m intent on helping others build their business and life by design.

I’m committed to cutting through the hype and do what matters to help clients achieve their next level in business.

Keynote Speaking

Tired of the hearing the same topic in a slightly different way? Then it’s time for keynotes and breakout sessions that provide tactics, motivate and inspire you to take action.

Business Coaching

Are you leading a team, in business development, career transition or starting a new venture? A targeted approach gets faster results.

Training Programs

Goals, challenges, and opportunities don’t come in a one-size fits all package. It’s time to get results that are as unique as the challenges you are facing in your business.

Ideas, Insights, and Actions

Do you ever get stuck and need a flash of insight, dose of motivation or resource to help you take action on that great idea?

That’s what you’ll get in my monthly message. You’ll also receive valuable tips and tools to help your business grow.

Yes I want them!

After 23 years of non-productive networking, I was fortunate to meet Joyce at what I had determined to be my last networking event. She asked what results I was getting from my efforts. I shared with her that for over two decades, I had provided quality referrals to many and had received very little in return. She said, “I can help you fix the problem and turn your networking into a valuable asset capable of growing your business exponentially.” The fee I paid for her consulting is absolutely the best business development investment I have ever made. My only regret is I didn’t meet her 20 years ago. It is without reservation that I recommend her services to you. Do you and your business a favor…retain her. Jeff Meyers, ChFC, CASL

Just Another Leap

Everything that you are familiar with today was once unfamiliar territory. There was a time where you didn’t know how to walk, talk or read. But you do all of those things effortlessly now. If you took a similar approach to everything else you learn in life, you’d be amazed at how quickly you progress. It starts by learning to leap. Speaking at TEDx allowed me to tell my ‘there to here’ story in 16 minutes. Click on the image to watch the video. You’ll see there’s a perfectly timed technical glitch about 2:45.
