Valuable advice from an engaging host!

It feels like Lauryn is in my living room chatting with me about personal finances! She brings such realness & practicality to sometimes complex money topics. I love her rapport with Chloe and her other guests - she’s never stuffy or over-complicated. She is an educator at heart and wants others to feel empowered.
