We’re like an external HR and professional development team for savvy solopreneurs and emerging companies.
We help businesses launch, evolve and grow by supporting the people who run them. We coach founders and employees at all levels to help teams and organizations achieve breakthroughs through the marriage of EQ and hard skills. Our clients solve strategic, leadership, operational, and cultural challenges resulting in better work-life integration and an improved bottom line.
We’re Ami & Laena.
Multiple degrees, a handful of prestigious careers, half a dozen startups, 2 kids, lots of travel, and countless knockdowns later, we’ve learned how to get up. Again and again.
Through private coaching and group trainings, we teach you to do the same.

Co-founder of Integrated Hustle, and a serial entrepreneur, educator, former professor, food brand ambassador, mom to two small humans, small-business HR pro who loves to connect and motivate.
You are freelancers, consultants, artists, small business c-suites, solopreneurs, small teams, designers, startups, armchair entrepreneurs, side hustlers, and your most valuable asset is you.
Think of us as therapists and counselors for your life at work: learn how to lead with efficiency and heart, define and protect your culture and values as you scale and get the support you need.
When founders, solopreneurs, teams and organizations are clear about their purpose and strategy, aligning who they are with what they do, then achieving daily breakthroughs is the norm. Through a combination of management consulting, coaching, and leadership development — what we call “holistic HR” — Integrated Hustle unlocks the full potential of scrappy businesses.
Payroll, insurance and benefits? There’s an app for that.
The emotional roller-coaster of business and growth? We’re the humans for that.

We partner with you on big decisions, help founders and leaders navigate the challenges of getting started (with a new business, new project, new direction), mediate partnership challenges, help you define the “why” and why me” of your business strategy, support leaders in delegation and collaboration so that their businesses can grow, create a positive “yes, and” culture, develop systems to onboard new employees armed with EQ from the get-go and more.
