Invaluable Advice for any Small Business

From the very first episode, it is clear Lauren is passionate about serving her community. As a small business owner, getting these bite-size (but invaluable) nuggets of legal advice has been incredible. Her guests are engaging, and I find myself relating to many of the same struggles. Thank you, Lauren, for providing this fantastic resource to us all.

Top Notch Advice from a Smart, Talented Woman

So grateful to have Lauren’s kind, down-to-earth voice in my ear to help my business be Legally Aligned. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Lauren and couldn’t be happier to be able to hear her more often with the podcast.

Valuable guidance for therapists in private practice

Listening to the Legally Aligned Podcast has increased my confidence as a private practice teletherapist. I never saw myself as a entrepreneur, but Lauren’s positive energy and powerful knowledge have encouraged me to level up my small business and expand my revenue streams. I look forward to listening in each week and immediately applying what I learn to my private practice.
