Meet Luisa Zhou, Business Coach
Meet Luisa

Welcome! I’m Luisa Zhou

My mission is to provide aspiring entrepreneurs with actionable advice and inspiration to start and build your own hugely profitable and meaningful business.

Sound like a pipe dream? It’s not.

I’ve taught thousands of students and counting how to leave their day jobs and start their own business making anywhere from 10K to 100K plus in a matter of months.

Over 100,000 people on social media and my email list look to me for support and guidance in starting their own businesses, and I’ve been featured in numerous publications including Forbes, Inc, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, and more.

So, how did I get here?

Here's my Story

When I was growing up, I dreamed of being the CEO of a major corporation. The child of Chinese immigrant parents, I was taught that a steady job and paycheck were the ticket to the American Dream -- and I bought in.

I wanted it all -- the power, the corner office, the big paycheck, and a closet full of Manolos. So I did the normal climb: I attended a prestigious university (Princeton) and majored in something safe (engineering) that would guarantee me a job out of college.

By the time I was 25, I was the big kahuna of a team managing millions of dollars in business each year. From the outside, I was really “making it” -- and I had the six-figure salary, high-rise condo, and proud parents to prove it.

But on the inside, I wasn’t happy. I was sick of the endless meetings, missed family time, and challenges that fell way below my potential. Why was I working my tail off for someone else’s business instead of my own?

Because I was living my parents’ dream -- not mine.

And while I wanted to make my parents proud, I realized I needed to do it my way. I wanted more out of my career -- and my life -- and I knew there had to be something better than working at a 9-5 I wasn’t passionate about.

So I went all in and started my own business teaching people the digital advertising skills I’d learned from previous jobs.

But here’s the thing: I didn’t march into my boss’s office and dramatically announce that I was quitting. Instead, I stayed in my job and worked on my business on the side until I was confident it could be a viable source of income.

And guess what?

I made over $100K in sales in four months -- while still working at my 9-5.

For the first time since I’d started working, I felt passionate and fulfilled by my work -- something I never experienced in my steady job.

And seven months after turning in my notice, I’d grown my business into over a million dollars in sales.

Now, I’m here to help you do the same.

Today, I teach smart, successful people like YOU how to start your own six-figure plus business. I’ve helped hundreds of students make anywhere from 10K to 100K in just a few months. And I’ve been featured in numerous online and print publications including Forbes, Inc, Entrepreneurand more.

My goal is to serve YOU and show you that anything is possible. If you can dream it, I can help you build it.

Care to get even more personal?

Check out these fun facts:

  • I’m Southern girl (everything’s bigger in Texas!) turned East Coaster with Chinese immigrant parents. That means I appreciate an ice-cold sweet tea just as much as a quilted Chanel bag. I can charm you with a drawl while telling you the firm truth you need to hear but I’m never EVER rude. That’s not the kind of world I want to live in.
  • I’m a self-proclaimed introvert who found the idea of starting her own business completely overwhelming -- like “hide under a blanket and binge-watch Downton Abbey until the urge to create your own business passes” kind of introvert. Now, I’m redefining what it means to be a risk-taker and successful entrepreneur.
  • In past lives, I’ve been an International Space Station engineer, a mobile payments start-up co-founder, and a digital advertising manager for companies looking to fuel their marketing with artificial intelligence. Any way you slice it, I’m a true blue nerd. And I love it.
  • Family is hands-down the most important thing to me. That’s part of the reason I’m such an advocate for freedom in your life—because when you have it, you can spend it with the people who mean the most to you. And for me, that’s my parents, sister, and husband. Recently, I became more grateful for my family than ever before: In a span of two years, my mother was diagnosed with both uterine and breast cancer (she’s currently in remission), my father had an emergency life-saving surgery, and my sister suffered a freak snowball injury that threatened to take her sight. It meant the world to me that I was able to support them in their challenges every step of the way.
