Free Enterprise Warriors was created in 2009 to support and empower courageous, learning-based entrepreneurs. We provide an infrastructure to businesses in the form of specific systems, support, leadership, training and accountability, so that the entrepreneur can grow their enterprise to its maximum potential.
Free Enterprise Warriors is a catalyst for those who play the game of business ownership. The term “Warrior” identifies those who have the courage, initiative, discipline and wisdom to start, build and lead worthy enterprises. They are guardians, servants and providers – those with the mental toughness to master the skills needed to champion a worthy cause.

Laurie has been a life-long, on-trend entrepreneur. At the age of eight, she helped her father with his NYC-based office equipment business; by age 14 she was already doing bookkeeping, making collection calls, and handling customers in the store. After pursuing her education in music and then an MBA, she returned to help him transition his business into the digital age. In the mid-80’s, she took over the business, successfully transitioned it into the service sector, and then sold it.
Laurie then moved into the real estate arena, mastering appraising, management and investing. On one project, she turned a $75,000 investment into a $1.3 million gain in just four years. In 2005, she opened the first Keller Williams Realty office in upscale Westchester County, New York. In less than 3 years, it grew to be the largest real estate office in the area.
In 2009, she joined with Dave to form Free Enterprise Warriors and serve as its CEO. “I see our company activating, empowering and accelerating others who aspire to be successful business owners. In the end, every worthy enterprise, for-profit or non-profit, must master and deploy sound business principles and systems. That’s what we help them do.”
