About Laura Ramirez

About Laura Ramirez? Geez, where to start? I’ve done so many things in my life and am always involved elbows-deep in so many projects that it’s difficult to know exactly how to put what I do into words. Suffice it to say, I have lots of interests. I’m a long time entrepreneur because I like working at home and being accessible to my family, I have started many online businesses during the last ten years and put my heart into them all. Why write about menopause, you ask? And what’s this mojo thing all about?

Laura Ramirez, Your Guide Through Menopause

When I was 39, I went through an abrupt and unexplained premature menopause. I had just had my youngest child three years earlier and had just stopped nursing about 16 months prior to going through “The Change”. How could I be post menopausal when my own mother, eighteen years my senior, was going through it herself? The doctors had no answers. Instead, I was given a bottle of hormones made from horse piss which I took home and promptly threw away.

Going through menopause so quickly without warning (no folks, there was no period of peri menopause) sent me into a tailspin. In addition to waking up all night with hot flashes and then spine-tingling chills that made me wonder if my spirit was climbing up my vertebrae and out my body, I was grumpy (just ask my husband) and terrified that as the mother of a 3 and 5 year old, the diagnosis of early onset menopause had just cut short my life by twenty years. Even though I didn’t plan on having more children, when I couldn’t, I deeply mourned this loss.

Anyway, going through menopause before my time put me on a journey to get back on my game.  Yes, folks, that’s where the mojo comes in. Whenever you are in crisis, you have an opportunity to transform your life. And despite the symptoms of menopause, the experience can be transformative, especially for women in their fifties and beyond, who have raised their children and for perhaps the first time in their adult lives now have the opportunity to fully become themselves. That’s what this site is all about. Your transformation. Belonging fully to yourself and becoming more of who you are. Just think of me as your guide or better yet, your midwife. I’m right here, just outside your chrysalis, whispering words of wisdom that will help you change from a caterpillar into the butterfly that you really are.

Yes, that’s a photo of me on the beach in Santa Monica. It is this sense of liberation and self-knowledge that I bring to you: a living example of a woman who has used the curve balls that life has thrown at her to transform herself and stand fully and freely in her own light. To all my sistas out there around the world, the same is possible for you. Contact me to find out more about my one-on-one coaching program. I’ll also be doing webinars and some fun in-person and online retreats and programs, so bookmark this site and stay tuned.
