About Laura Kronen
Laura Kronen has accomplished many things in a 23-year career that was nationally recognized by Inc. Magazine when it featured her as a top entrepreneur of the year. But she’s most proud of something that others go to great lengths to hide or downplay – she’s a diabetic who has learned to thrive both in spite of and because of her chronic condition.
It’s no surprise that Laura has a positive, even empowering attitude. She has served as the CEO of Be You Only Better, a transformational life coaching company she established six years ago. She provides motivational, entrepreneurial, health and wellness, and relationship coaching. Her life coaching techniques have literally changed people’s lives and enabled them to live up to their truest potential, giving them the necessary tools to achieve their dreams.
Laura is the author of Amazon Best Selling Book in the diabetes genre, Too Sweet: The Not-So-Serious Side to Diabetes. As a Type 1 diabetic, Laura serves on the board of directors of JDRF Atlanta and helps others find strength in overcoming the challenges of living with a disease that now afflicts 29 million Americans.
Her Be You Only Better blog features daily self-help articles on a variety of useful topics, from building self-confidence to facing fears. She also provides top reviews of fitness, beauty, and skincare products and services from all over the world.
Laura is certified in Advanced Transformational Leadership and is a Master Results Coach, Master Practitioner of NLP and Master Hypnotist in Ericksonian Hypnosis. She received a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from the University of Rhode Island.
Before making the rewarding transition as a life coach, Kronen introduced a number of innovative products to the marketplace. A visionary, Kronen created Belly Ups, which holds women’s low-rise pants and leggings up during pregnancy. Earlier in her career, after more than a decade of working at the director level in the glittering world of fashion and luxury goods public relations, Kronen developed, directed, and produced the multi award-winning Baby Road Trip video series.
Originally from New York City, she resides with her family in Atlanta, Georgia.
