LMG University

Where Success Awaits You!


Welcome to LMG University!

If I had to encapsulate, in one tightly edited sentence, what my business mission is, it would read like this: Lisa Montanaro Global Enterprises aims to empower people and organizations with the tools you need to optimize your personal and professional life.

To that end, I created LMG University, which is guaranteed to do just that by providing courses globally to help you improve your business, career and life. LMG University houses all of the group programs that I now offer. While I love coaching & consulting with my private clients and will continue to do that work, I have decided to circle back to my teaching/training background and incorporate that into my professional landscape in a way that will allow me to serve more people on a wider platform. You’ll still find individual coaching, organizational consulting, and speaking on the main LisaMontanaro.com site.

The pursuit of education in the form of personal and professional development gets me jazzed. LMG University is a place that you can come to learn, grow, be inspired, be motivated, connect, and succeed. LMGU is interdisciplinary in scope and, therefore, provides courses and programs for business, career and life through the LMGU Business School, Enrichment Center and Career Services Office. In the future, we will roll out the full expanse of LMGU offerings, which will include semester-long courses, one-day intensives, live retreats — even study abroad programs!

The common theme that runs through all of my services is success . . . YOUR success. This is demonstrated by my company tag line: “Where success takes center stage.” And the measure of MY success is if you walk away feeling better equipped to amplify every area of your already-amazing life, business and career.

Whether you are building a business from scratch, are an experienced entrepreneur, crave a more satisfying career, want to live a more passionate and success-filled life, need to boost your productivity, or become a dynamic public speaker, LMGU has something to support you in achieving your goals.

I look forward to seeing YOU on campus!

Rave Reviews for Lisa’s Teaching/Training/Facilitation

“Wow! Where do I begin when it comes to sharing about the bottom line impact that the Successfully Self Employed Semester offered by LMG University has had on my business, goals and perspective?! Some of the value I received in participating in this 12 week program was knowing that I’m going to save a ton of time and money implementing what I learned, versus stumbling around on my own trying to figure it out. During SSES, we thoroughly discussed the crucial topics needed to be a successful business owner. Due to Lisa’s exceptional expertise, as well as the camaraderie and team spirit of the participants, I accomplished several goals and tasks promptly and efficiently while learning how to increase my sales, legally protect, and automate my business. Belonging to a group of entrepreneurs who come with their unique backgrounds and experiences complimented by Lisa’s invaluable knowledge and business savvy, we were able to walk through personal and professional fears, and gain broader perspectives around what may be going on behind the scenes. We addressed some of the deeper issues holding us and our businesses back. What a gift to receive on-the-spot input, ideas and constructive feedback regarding my elevator speech, marketing materials, legal business status, and so much more. If you’re looking for a program that will show you how to maximize results and profits over the long haul, I highly recommend Lisa Montanaro’s Successfully Self Employed Semester.” ~ Natasha Rickert, www.EnergytoOrganize.com

But having your input and review of my plans left me feeling both elated and reassured at the same time. With your experience and incredibly savvy business expertise, it has given me a new level of clarity and confidence that I ever could have reached on my own!
