šŸ“ Summary

  • Feeling frazzled & learning to manage our energy Ā 
  • Our experiences at school
  • Labels like "shy", "selective mutism" and "bipolar"
  • Navigating family life, noticing everything that's going on, and holding space
  • Cultural "rules" and expectations
  • Not having 'job titles' that fit for us, and creating your own vocation
  • Answering the question "So, what you do?" at Indian weddings, and otherwise claiming who you are & what you do
  • The slow, unfolding journey of an intuitive career-changer who wants to 'do their own thing'
  • Showing up as yourself online, claiming who you are, and the approach Lauren takes with putting her stuff "out there" (using a soup analogy)
  • How Lauren treats her fiction writing, a fiction book recommendation, and what launching something online feels like for us
