About - Louise Thaxton
In September 2005, when Hurricane Rita hit Louisiana, Louise Thaxton and her family suffered a significant loss of income when one of her husband's businesses was destroyed. He asked her "Can your business make money until mine is rebuilt?" At that point, Louise's business by her own definition was "...drowning in mediocrity..." and she just wanted OUT of the business! But through a series of events in which she discovered her purpose and her passion, Louise came to understand the power principal of how changing the habits of your mind can change your life. She fell in love with her business again and increased her production by 400%! It has now become her passion to share with others the powerful principles and mindsets she discovered during this process so that they can accomplish the same degree of success. It is her mantra "...to change your life, you have to change your mind!"
