Can’t stop listening to this podcast.

I feel like this podcast has gotten it “just right.” Lauren is a very enjoyable person to listen to: she gives real advice for a real person, everything is practical and actionable, truthful and straight without being harsh. I find myself re-listening to episodes because there is always wisdom to combat where I have been stuck. It’s like a good friend started coaching me every week for free on how to achieve goals. Thank you, Lauren, you’ve really got *it* and I’m so happy I found you.
