Every week Lauren asks her guests 5 quick-fire questions…
What’s one thing you wish you’d known when you started this journey?
“The thing I would have loved to have known is that all of the hours were really worth it and it wasn’t going to be such insanely long hours forever, that there was going to be an end to that.”
What’s one thing you wish you’d done sooner in your business?
“Definitely brought our website management in-house instead of continuing to use agencies.”
Why do you do what you do?
“To remind people of what they were born knowing, which is that they are enough. Because when people are enough, then they know they have enough, and ramping consumerism will hopefully slow down. And when we know we are enough, we treat people with more patience, with more kindness.”
What’s the best part about your job?
“The variety. So it can start with an early morning radio interview, I then might write an article, I get to talk to beautiful humans like you, or it could be in complete solitude starting to write another book, it might be an online live event. I have an online 9-week course for women – I might be in the forums answering their questions, so the variety is wonderful, I really love that. ”
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
“Build your business from cash flow, not from debt.”
