Business: Ilios Resources
Laura plays a “man’s game” for a living as a “land and mineral rights person.” Laura finds, buys, sells, brokers and leases land for mineral collection (i.e., gas and oil). Laura started her career doing land and oil rights for the oil companies. After Laura learned the ropes, she branched out on her own and began her company, Illios Resources, which deals with amassing mineral rights herself, which she in turn sells to the oil companies.
Laura has 4 employees, most of whom are freelance “land men;” people who put their feet on the ground to go survey potential sites. Since 2004, Laura has accumulated 18,000 acres of mineral rights which has made her millions.
