Exactly what I was searching for!

I was looking on Pinterest one day about how to design a website & about being a mom entrepreneur. This woman has SAVED me. Her content is real, relatable, full of value, and she is knowledgeable!

Her vibes reminds me of the girl next door, but her motivation and knowledge are def CEO of a company vibes.

I wish I could give 6 stars!

Awesome tips for freelance creatives 👍🏼

I started listening to Lauren Hookers Elle Chat podcast, just because I loved the way she curated her Instagram feed. I’m a Creative Director who’s just about to start my own design agency, and I feel like I’ve learned a lot already from the great advice that’s she has given.
