Praise for Business Coaching
Invaluable Asset to Personal and Business Development
Lorna is a true professional with an extensive, hands-on knowledge of business development for the socially conscious entrepreneur. Her personal guidance and business programs are an invaluable asset to my personal and business development.
Founder, Editor & Publisher at Global Warming Is Real
Tara Kekaha from Oakland was about to launch a new online business promoting sustainable tourism and accommodation. She was trying to determine what kind of website she needed to power her business, and the best way to name it.
Saved a Lot of Time, Work and Worry – Tara Kekaha
I can’t say enough about Lorna’s expertise in this field. So many options and routes to take when you’re starting out. I’m starting my new business and have questions about choosing a domain name — Do hyphenated names work? How do I choose what domains to purchase? What types of names are going to be successful for SEO? Does .co work as well as .com? She clearly has a lot of experience and (I’m sure) has saved me a lot of time, work, and worry. It’s good to know there’s someone there who cares about changing the world, being green, and has all that experience to boot.

Utmost Dedication as a Business Coach, Dominic Thiffault
As a business coach, Lorna demonstrated not only utmost dedication to our interaction but an exceptional capability to envision equitable scenarios with a critical mind for realisable solutions and a fine sensibility to my needs and concerns. She acts, works and lives according to the best and most honorable principles I have encountered in humans to date.
Passion & Drive, Itatiaia Daniel
The coaching that I got from her about how to create my 1:1 coaching package to appeal to different types of clients was brilliant. I now have a much clearer direction on how I want to serve my clients. Also, the free gift idea tip that she gave me to do an audio with a transcript of my favorite recipes and tips to heal alcohol cravings really spoke to me. Thank you so much Lorna for taking the time to really put in some thought on what would really work for my particular business. Your passion and your drive for what you do totally shows in your skills and your expertise.
Praise for Business Breakthroughs

Provides Crystal Clear Plans, Rev Dele
“My coaching session with Lorna left me with a crystal clear plan of how to recruit the national level partners I need to move my business forward, as well as a clear timeline to profitability. It was like going from 0-60 in 8 seconds! I also appreciated her compassion and thoroughness in problem solving. She has tremendous resources and a generous heart–I will recommend her as often as possible!”
Understands Mental & Practical Challenges, Wendy Werneth
“I am very grateful to the universe for putting Lorna in my path at the right time. I feel like she really listened to me and understood both the mental and practical challenges I was facing in my business. She helped me to see things from a different perspective and proposed new options that I had not considered before.”
Helped Me Gain Clarity On The Big ‘WHY’, Virginia Chu-Kierans
“Our discovery session was packed with value in that Lorna was able to help me get oriented in the priorities of creating a new online business concept. More importantly she helped me gain further clarity on the big ‘why’ even though I had many ideas. Thanks Lorna for your thoughtful insight and your laser focus questioning which have all jump started an initial plan of action!”
Far Reaching Suggestions and Insights, Pedro Maal
“I am amazed by the degree of depth we were able to slice through in my plans, and your far reaching suggestions and insights are going to affect the very core of how we move on from here. My time with you may have been the most powerful minutes I’ve spent all year. Thank you very much.”
Feeling Inspired & Driven, Jonathan Thompson
Just had a 45-minute session with the INCREDIBLE Lorna Li. Feeling inspired, feeling driven, feeling like there’s finally a framework that makes all the tiny little bits and pieces fit together in a coherent way! There IS a path to the life that I want for myself, my family, and the work that I want to do in the world! Thank you, Lorna! Looking forward to more!

Multi-channel Online Marketing, Bill Shaw of Salesforce
Lorna pioneered our social SEO campaigns and tested various approaches to viral link building, from infographics, to video, free apps and widgets. It’s hard to make B2B go viral, yet she was able to come up with content ideas and identify vendors to help us launch a variety of different campaigns. She single handedly managed and grew several niche microsites, driving the content, traffic, rankings and lead gen strategy. Lorna is a self starter, hard working, creative, and continuously trying to learn and improve her internet marketing game – qualities that make her a great asset to any online marketing team

Praise for Digital Products
I’ve lead the development of web apps and digital products that solve problems and provide value to small businesses and entrepreneurs.
Improved Publicity Through Social Media, Sylvia Lehnen of SuccessFactors
Lorna is a creative thinker, effective planner, and gifted leader. I had the pleasure of working with her on a 2-week project to integrate WordPress with Salesforce—just in time for the WordPress user conference and the Web 2.0 expo. It was an extremely ambitious time frame given all the project complexities.
Lorna pulled together all the technical pieces, effectively led a diverse team, and mounted a comprehensive social media campaign that resulted in lots of publicity, including mentions by Matt Mullenweg and in Tim O’Reilly’s keynote.
~ Sylvia Lehnen
Director, Content Marketing & Campaigns at SuccessFactors
Mentions on All the Major Tech Blogs, Bing Yang of Salesforce
I worked with Lorna on the launch of a plugin that captures leads from WordPress sites and, instead of routing the lead to your email – where it easily gets buried – as most lead capture plugins do, it is captured in Salesforce CRM. It was a really useful app, that solved a problem that our users were facing – how to easily add a web form to their WordPress site that was easy to use, integrated with their existing design, and didn’t require additional dev resources in order for it to work.
It was an under the radar project whose success took everyone by surprise, with mentions on all the major tech blogs. WordPress to Lead great case study in the power of freemium app development, viral marketing and social media PR.

Changemaker Dojo Testimonials
Amy was planning on launching a new online program oriented towards helping entrepreneurs travel around the world while running their businesses. She spent weeks trying to figure out what to call it. Using the product naming strategies we go over in Module 5, she came up with Nomad Evolution, a new community for nomadic souls.
Lots of great information, highly recommended – Amy Scott, Nomadtopia
The program that Lorna Li has created is really extraordinary and I think it’s really unique compared to other things that are on the market. Because it’s not just about bringing in expertise and case studies from people who are in the typical marketing world but also entrepreneurs with lots of different kinds of business models who are really making a difference in concrete ways. I in particular have learned a lot from the branding information. I’ve really been able to refine the way that I present what I am doing in the world. It also helped me recognize a lot of the things that I’m doing, kind of dropping the ball on keyword research, and Lorna has helped me realize that that’s another important piece of the puzzle. So there’s lots of great information here and I highly recommend it.
Nate has a software as a service product that’s really popular in design circles and gets a lot of traffic to his website already, traffic that he wasn’t doing anything with. Now that he is building his email list, he’s going to be able to monetize his traffic by offering highly relevant products and services to his email list subscribers. He can create his own products or he can offer products as an affiliate. So that income right there is far better than anything that he could possibly earn through clicks on Google AdSense ads.
Getting 8-10 New Signups Daily, Nate Welling of CSSGenerator.com
Using Lorna’s strategies and advice from the lead generation module of her course I was able to go from having no email list whatsoever, to getting 8-10 new signups everyday using her simple but effective opt-in gift strategy.
And all it took was 10 minutes to add a welcome opt-in landing page on my site, and I started getting signups immediately.
What’s great is that the list contains very qualified leads, so I have a high engagement rate with this audience, and for list-building, this is very important, which she mentions in her course.
Initially I was skeptical, but after seeing my list grow I’ve been kicking myself for not doing it sooner.
Breakthrough Content Marketing Course, Torsten Kremser
As a traveler my dream was basically to be absolutely location independant, for me the only way was to set up a business online. Making money online was also the best way to finance and support my passion project Rainforestation.org. I have to admit that i didn’t really have a clear idea about what i was diving into. Writing good, well-thought out articles took me so much effort and time. But i felt so helpless when i couldn’t get much traffic, in spite of my efforts.
Being a guest blogger is something that I never thought about and it is definitely helpful to receive traffic from authority websites in my same niche! I also realised that I could use my photography to quickly grow my Facebook fans and reach more people. Lorna’s course taught me how to market my content properly, which was the breakthrough I needed after I felt that I had done everything, I didn’t know what else I could do.
The branding module is a fun one for creative entrepreneurs. Jennifer Lyall from Toronto was preparing for a rebrand of her website and wanted to figure out the best way to approach it, as well as work with her graphic designer.
Rockstar Material! – Jennifer Lyall, Your Soul Connection
The branding module – this is just worth almost the whole program; the time that I’m saving, the money that I’m saving, and the knowledge that I now have, moving forward… this is rock star material! Thank you!

Lorna hired me as a blogger to assist in a link building campaign for a top national solar company. Over the course of three months, Lorna coordinated with myself and other writers to create a large volume of optimized blog posts for well-known green websites.
