Welcome! so nice to meetyou.

We help businesses solve complex business problems by correctly diagnosing what is prohibiting growth, producing bottlenecks, and creating inefficiencies. Once we have the clarity necessary from the diagnosis, we strategically prioritize and plan together to simplify the successful path to business growth.

This unique process gives our clients the clarity of where to correctly focus in their business now rather than chasing business squirrels and ending up high centered later due to a false sense of progress.

Through working with us, our clients can clearly see what strategy is necessary to have the biggest impact on profits, revenue, productivity, team, and overall sustainable business growth.

Meet Lauren

Lauren is the founder and CEO of globally successful boutique consulting firm, Golden Key Partnership, who has been helping businesses scale more strategically for close to 10 years.

Her superpower is uncovering the root cause of what is keeping businesses stuck at status quo.

She melds her medical mind with her business expertise to simply and effectively diagnose businesses and help them strategically prioritize what is needed now to get where they want to go.

She believes that there are many indicators that can show the pulse and overall health of a business. When observed and diagnosed properly, strategy has the ability to uncover threats, show patterns, and predict trajectories. This information allows you to course correct, avoid pitfalls, as well as double down on what works. When done poorly it can be the kiss of death to a business, because it gives the illusion of progress and direction without actual traction.

Over her almost decade of work in the strategy consulting field she has come to recognize that the chasm between good and great is large, but the distance between a great company and an exceptional one that will stand the test of time is 2mm.

She, and Golden Key Partnership live and thrive in that 2mm space. That is where the magic happens. When you make strategic microscopic adjustments they create a ripple effect that will make all the difference between stagnation and successful, sustainable scaling.

Whether you have a seasoned business ripe for growth or one that grew too fast and now needs foundation strategy support, her innovative approach to strategy, combined with her neuroscience background, is what helps her propel her clients businesses to the next level, and one of the many reasons why people from all over the world choose to work with her.

Our Story

Once upon a time, there was a young lady who wanted to be a doctor.  She did everything right, went to the best schools, got the grades, took the tests, and worked at one of the countries most prestigious Children’s hospitals in the country.  It was one cold winter morning that would change everything..

You see that young lady was our founder Lauren.  She had stepped out from behind the research bench and onto the clinical floor of our Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at the same time a little baby was flown in from Montana who was in status epilepticus.

Status epilepticus (SE) is a medical emergency associated with significant morbidity and mortality. 

SE is defined as a continuous seizure lasting more than 30 min, or two or more seizures without full recovery of consciousness between any of them.

Lauren watched as the treatment the team put in place disappeared before their eyes.  They had done everything they could for this little baby but the insurance company simple couldn’t see the cost/benefit they could and refused to allow the little babies treatment.

Lauren had never felt so helpless and angry.  How could they do this to this poor innocent child?  She just couldn’t understand – and she couldn’t be a part of it anymore.

It was as if she had an out of body experience. She saw herself resigning, the life she so carefully planned slipping away.  Being a doctor was her life’s passion, but there had to be another way to make a difference.

Fast forward to many many long hours getting a very different education in business and strategy, now Lauren is a sought after business doctor.

Her super power is looking at a business and seeing what lies beneath the surface that is causing stagnation, friction, and loss of revenue.

Her medical mind is still very much intact, yet instead of tiny humans she helps multi six and seven figure businesses reach optimal health.

She is the nerve network that connects the movie pieces of your business to the spinal column so that the body of your business can move forward to new heights.

We promise, one hour with Lauren and you will never look at your business, or strategy, the same way.  Her clients say it truly is remarkable how her brain works to solve even the most complex business challenges in the most efficient and simplistic ways that you never thought possible.

Why we do what we do

We believe that there are many indicators that can indicate the pulse and overall health of a business, which can be used to predict trajectories. 

We believe that strategy is not a buzz word that should be attached as a suffix to every part of a business.  We believe that strategy is the pulse on which a business is built.  When done properly it has the ability to uncover treats, show patterns, and predict trajectories.  When done poorly it can be the kiss of death to a business because it gives the illusion of progress and direction. 

We know that the chasm between good and great is large, but the distance between a great company and an exceptional one that will stand the test of time is 2mm.   We, at Golden Key Partnership live and thrive in that 2mm space because it is within that space that we help you make the most surprising microscopic adjustments that will make all the difference between stagnation and successful, sustainable scaling. 

We help you check the pulse on your business and formulate a treatment plan

We love keeping our hand on the pulse of your business so we can help you recognize what these indicators are telling you and what to look for that will allow you to course correct, avoid pitfalls, as well as double down on what works.  Without a proper business checkup and treatment plan, and knowing how to interpret and implement those indicators you business will either stay at status quo or start to steadily decline. 

We help you get clear on any bottlenecks, roadblocks, or weak spots in your business.  Then we help you map out exactly how to treat those areas so that your business can thrive, you can make a bigger impact, and most importantly build a business that is sustainable, profitable, and growing without sacrificing your sanity.
