In this episode of the Get Loved Up Podcast, Koya Webb welcomes Lauren Messiah, style expert, entrepreneur, digital influencer, educator, and author of Style Therapy: 30 Days to Your Signature Style.
Lauren shares her entrepreneurial journey and how she has shifted from teaching people how to style, to teaching others how to start a successful and sustainable styling business. Not only did this empower her students more, it also gave her more satisfaction and fulfillment with her career.
Lauren suggests that having a purpose should be at the core of a styling business. You cannot simply enter it because you think the clothes are pretty. In her style therapy, Lauren also teaches that women should learn to love their body for what it is and see the beauty of it as the body that has grown with you and weathered the highs and lows.
She also shares the role of daily meditation in her practice and how she pre-plans her outfits to remove the stress and uncertainty over feeling good in your own clothes. And as Lauren struggled with alcohol, she also gives tips on how you can get sober too and change your life for the better.
