Once a multiple-award-winning realtor in Vancouver, Canada, Lori Losch recently relocated to Phoenix, Arizona and launched several new careers as: a mobile app developer, children’s book author, adult nonfiction author and a workshop creator/facilitator.
Part adventure nut, part creative businesswoman and part philanthropist, she has summited Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya and has trekked to Mount Everest Base Camp in the Himalayas, as well as the Salkantay and Inca Trails in the Andes. She supports organizations that advance prosperity and healing, as well as animal welfare, in the countries she explores.
As the cofounder of We’re Making it Our Beeswax, a women’s empowerment program, Lori has trained rural Zambian women in the art and business of beeswax candle making, sales and marketing. These skills enable them to create an income for themselves and their families, where previously there was little hope of doing so.
Lori also cofounded the Answer for Cancer Tour, a 2-month/20,000-mile motorcycle tour amplifying the message of cancer prevention. She rode forty-five states and seven Canadian provinces on her Honda CBR600 sport bike, helping to raise $500,000 for the cause. In doing so, she brought cancer-prevention strategies to untold thousands via live events, radio talk shows, TV interviews and print media.
While serving on the Canadian board of Prevent Cancer Now, she designed and developed a mobile app called Prevent Cancer: 365 Daily Tips to help fund the organization. In keeping with her love of inspiring healthy living, she also created Stretch Guru, a popular mobile app series designed to mitigate an athlete’s risk of injury. HealthTap doctors rate Stretch Guru: Run in the top 10 paid-for running apps.
Lori’s children’s books, Bumbles … finds her way home! and Bumbles … saves Naipoki!, serve to entertain and educate children, and to bring awareness and financial support to the causes they champion. They are available through Amazon.
But perhaps the closest endeavor to her heart is the Safe Souls movement. Lori’s book, Safe Souls: Transforming Relationships and Businesses Through the Power of Kind, Clean and Clear Communication, is due out in early 2016 and she is currently presenting its content in a workshop format. She has a vision of a world exploding with kindness, where all people are empowered to self-actualize because they feel free to be themselves—knowing their ‘tribes’ have their backs.
Lori lives with her amazing husband, Ken, and their sweet and hilarious dogs, Parker and Milo.
