Actress to Online Coaching Business
Lauren has an interesting path to find her career.
- Started as an NYU Trained actress.
- Back in California, her education became a liability as she tried to break into acting.
- Started doing something she knew to make money – tutoring. Worked for a large tutoring company providing test prep tutoring/coaching.
- Left that company because they were missing some market needs. Thought she could provide better service on her own. (CLUES to an idea)
- Grew her new company slowly locally and now reaching out online!
- Motivation for online – Getting married and starting a family. Do not let work control your life. Make you work work for you!
