Get Curious With Me

Hi. I’m Lauren. I help entrepreneurs, creative professionals, and accidental bosses discover their own definitions of success, and live (and work) in alignment with them. Some of the ways I do that include writing, coaching, teaching, public speaking, and advising a startup or two.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find something here that makes your day a little brighter.
