    Three Birthday Reflections, My Sister Sarah Vanags Interviews Me

    Three Birthday Reflections, My Sister Sarah Vanags Interviews Me

    My sister Sarah, ever since we were little, has encouraged me in her own way to celebrate myself on my birthday. A few years ago she started asking everyone 3 questions on their birthday and this year I asked if she would ask them to me on my podcast.
    We recorded this less than 24 hours before my birthday so it counts. Thanks to my editor Fynn Gentle (https://fynngentle.com/) for turning this around quickly to have out on time for my birthday today. 
    In this episode you will hear a much more personal, less business episode about my life, my thoughts, Sarah and I and our childhood.
    Thanks for starting the next 365 days around the sun with me.

Are you playing small?

The REAL PERSONAL BRANDING podcast challenges us to think differently about how we show up to the world. Lauren gets the answers to questions we want to know but wouldn’t think to ask. Each episode is filled with practical tips and powerful insights that can boost our personal brands!

Digging deep!

I love Lauren’s questions for her quest. She digs deep and gets the information out of her guests.

Such a great listen!

It’s refreshing to hear stories and insights, not just “business rules.” Growing a business is about adapting the best practices to you and your business, and this podcast really brings that idea to life. Lauren has had such great speakers on, and I am always looking forward to the next episode.
