    Go To Yosemite – A Story for Living Your Life To The Fullest

    Go To Yosemite – A Story for Living Your Life To The Fullest

    What is the legacy you want to leave? What do you want to be remembered for?
    Lauren lost her brother to cancer almost nine years ago. And one of the things she remembers the most about him is how tremendous his passion for life was.
    During his last days and contrary to what his family wanted for him, he decided to make a trip to Yosemite as he knew this was the last time he could visit the area before having his jaw removed.

    This is a sad story, yes. And oftentimes, sharing sad stories is avoided. However, not sharing the positive impact Lauren's brother left in this world would be a disservice to life itself.
    Today's episode is an invitation to live your life to the fullest, to not wait for the ¨right moment¨ to do what your heart truly desires, to not tuck your dreams away, and instead start living life before it's over.
    As you'll hear Lauren mention, this is the last episode of the season. We are going to be away from the podcast and social media, and use this time to nourish our souls, go chase after more dreams, spend time with family, rest, and more importantly, live life to the fullest!
    We will be back in January fully renewed and with more episodes and writerly inspiration for you. Until then, we hope you find your Yosemite.

    Alternative Styles of Publishing with Roxan McDonald

    How do you feel about the different publishing options out there? Do you feel confident or intimidated?
    As writers and creative entrepreneurs, we are told the traditional publishing route is the way to go if you want to be taken seriously in the writing world. Want to be a legitimate author? Go pitch yourself to one of the big five, they say...But what if we took all the ego and false beliefs out of the equation and instead focused on bringing our art to life while showing up authentically in our writing?
    Today's profound conversation is delivered by the inspiring Roxan McDonald.
    In this episode, Roxan and Lauren dive deep into the craft of writing. They chat about how the publishing world is changing and the immense opportunity this represents to new authors. Roxan also shares her beautiful definition of craft as well as her journey as a writer and influencer.

    Building a Niche as a Writer with Katie Treggiden

    Have you ever heard of circular economies?
    Don't worry, we hadn't either until this episode!
    A circular economy aims to close the gap between the production and the natural ecosystems’ cycles – on which humans ultimately depend upon.
    Today's guest, Katie Treggiden is an expert on this topic. She is also a keynote speaker, podcaster, and if that wasn't enough, a writer.
    Katie has done amazing things as a writer. She has created a whole world around writing by putting out there different programs and resources.
    She has also found success in niching down as a writer and is here today to share all the benefits of this practice.

Yes, please!

Lauren embodies charm, wisdom, creativity, and coach. She has curated a writing program that allows you to make your writing dreams a reality. I am forever grateful that I was introduced to her writing program, Write Your Friggin’ Book Already. Thank you Lauren for following your heart and not shying away from speaking your truth or living out your purpose. Thank you for creating a platform for others to do the same!

Grateful!

Lauren and her School for Writers podcast has been such a life saver in the past year! Her combination of creativity, compassionate and competence make her an awesome writing coach! I have learned a ton from Lauren and have a book draft to show for it.

Professionalism + accessibility = excellence

Lauren approached me to be a guest on her highly rated podcast, School for Writers, after my latest book hit the shelves. Often, there is a flurry of such requests when an author releases a new title, and during COVID authors are increasingly grateful to share their voices as in-person events are not possible.

I so appreciate Lauren’s friendly professionalism in a growing space. She is well prepared and prepares her guests by sending timely materials, and once taping begins she strikes just the right balance of friendly and informed. She puts her guests at ease and then guides the conversation to relevant, clear discussion.

This podcast is sure to grow in listenership given the production quality and range of topics of interest to writers.
