About Laura

Laura Templeton, Founder and CEO of 30 Second Success, is an entrepreneur, connector, speaker, author, writer, wordsmith, creative soul, network and branding specialist, coach, mentor, friend to many, wife, mother, and a woman of faith. She believes in the power of building others up, helping everyone find their personal message and giving them a voice in order to be heard.

With over 15 years of sales training, personal development, coaching and networking, Laura understands the countless benefits of building relationships through networking. She developed her niche business based on a deep need she saw within the networking community, the need for people to create a clear, concise, confident message that connects with your ideal clients.

Laura’s ability to connect with her clients and come away with a clear understanding of what they do gives her the ability to create very powerful branded messages that bring more business to her clients. She believes that when you begin to connect on a deeper level and really understand who your client is and what they need, that is when the true magic happens.

She says, “It’s not about pitching. You can pitch all day long and get the ball across the plate every time, but if the batter never hits it there’s no connection. In business you need to connect, not just throw stuff in the air and hope something happens.” So, if you’re ready to “Ditch the Pitch, and Start Connecting!”™, if you need a message your sales team can stand behind with confidence, register for one of our programs or schedule an appointment to work with Laura directly.

Laura’s favorite compliment from a client speaks volumes about her work.
“You made me cry. You wrote it as if you were me.”

  • Laura, I wanted to thank you so much for your time and energy into developing several commercials for me that have really helped me get my message across to various types of audiences. Networking and providing a succinct message to the many folks I meet on a weekly basis is tantamount to making a good first impression and striking a balance between being short, sweet and to the point. Not only did you do a quick turn and meet me with short notice, you took the necessary time to fully understand my services, the target audiences, and designed specific verbiage that is designed to capture attention and spark interest. This has been extremely valuable for all the events I attend and I have more confidence in any environment. Also, the three variations allowed me to target specific niches based on venue. And finally, the script you provided for my video commercial was stellar. Not only did I have great words to use, the entire message flowed from start to finish with an awesome call to action. So many thanks for making my first year better than expected!


  • The trust and encouragement in this mastermind group is fantastic. We hold each other accountable and help one another through blocks. No more making excuses! In the 8 months since I've been a part of this group, I've launched three courses, hosted two webinars and grown the client side portion of my business.

  • As part of a mastermind group led by Laura Templeton, I have found that I have a safe place to get help with my business problems. With her clear direction and insight and her ability to see the bigger picture, I have been able to get over those hurdles. Her feedback, encouragement, and willingness to call me on my excuses have helped me move forward to grow my business. The accountability piece has been the essential part to keep me on track.


  • I want to thank you, Laura, for speaking to my group of women in business. One of the biggest causes of stress for my new yet growing group has been how to give a 30-second introduction. Not only did you deliver on your promise to teach them how to have a compelling introduction, you took it to the next level by sharing with them how to make a meaningful connection after the introduction. Your expertise and comfort in speaking and teaching were evident from the moment you took the floor. Thank you so much for sharing your genius with us.

  • Laura spoke at our Women of Willow Grove meeting with over 45 women in attendance. She is very passionate in helping others achieve the success they seek! Laura discussed how to give the best 30 second commercial you can, as the first impression is a lasting impression. When we give our 30 second commercial or our "elevator speech" going over 30 seconds leaves those listening, bored, disinterested and overly informed!
    With insight on capturing your audience’s attention with your message, Laura inspired us to be the best in those brief 30 seconds and to keep achieving successful connections. Many approached Laura after the meeting to get questions answered! Many of our members have become her clients and attribute some of their growth and success to the coaching received while working with her. She is truly a professional!


    Judy Dyke, President of Women of Willow Grove

  • I had the pleasure of working with Laura on my professional Bio which I use has a handout during my Real Estate listing presentations. Laura was very helpful in the process, she first interviewed me to get to know me better, wrote the Bio and then we met again to review and edit. It was perfect! I enjoyed working with her; she is very professional & knows her stuff! Good job Laura, looking forward to working with you again in the near future. I would highly recommend her.


    Jaye Steuterman, J. Carroll Malloy Realtors

  • We loved having you! Thank you so much for coming in and giving the girls pointers on how they can be better speakers and do better interviews! The girls said they learned a lot and a lot was reinforced for what they already knew so it was a win-win all the way around!


    Leslie Conway, Inspiring Teens and Conway Productions Inc.

  • Thank you again for speaking to us yesterday. You had the entire room at the edge of their seats! You really have no idea the kind of service you've provided for all of us. Not to mention the kind of confidence we now feel about our business.

    Aimee Pozsonyi Hoch, Le-Vel Brand Promoter

  • I learn so much working with Laura Templeton. It seems like Laura can look at you and your business from overhead. Through her course(s), she helps guide your thinking so your business vision is much greater than you originally thought and much clearer.
