hey, I'm Lauren
When I was a kid, I loved creating imaginary businesses. As I grew up, I loved the idea of being my own boss even more, and while the "what" of my vision changed over time the "why" never did.
No matter what I did, I wanted to find a way to empower women. I wanted to create a system where I could build up, encourage and inspire as many women as possible. An army of grounded, confident, powerful beings.
and this journey started with a podcast...
The first time I learned about cyclical living, I was listening to a business podcast. Jenna Kutcher was interviewing Claire Baker (my eventual mentor) about the power of our menstrual cycles. She spoke about how we could work within our 28-day cycles, instead of working against them.
I realized i had made so many decisions about my own body with a man in mind. the way i treated myself was wrong.
I had been on hormonal birth control since I was sixteen because I thought it made me cool. I was never taught about other options. Heck, I was never even taught about when I'm ACTUALLY fertile in my monthly cycle. I was terrified of becoming pregnant and that's all I knew about my body. Fear.
After hearing that podcast, a fire was lit in my belly. I was off the pill within a month, I grew out my pubes and I've never felt more incredibly invincible as a woman. I was grounded, powerful and magical.
That's when the lightbulb went off. I knew that this cyclical fire in my belly could be passed on.
I freaking adore women. I love creative entrepreneurs, the magic they invent, and the potential they contain. Combining two of my passions is truly the biggest no-brainer of my life. I want to enable women and menstruators alike to tap into their abundance from a centred place.
and now i'm going to scream it from the rooftops.
I'm building a space on the internet for people like you. People who know there's more in the world they want to discover, experience, witness. People who find strength in collaboration and community (even introverts like me need support). It's a magical place for magical people like you.
Deep conversation, sparkling wine, hiking in the sun, and helping small businesses grow.
"Earning" your rest,
comparison, the patriarchy, tearing others down in order
"They convinced me I only had a few good years left before I was replaced by a girl younger than me, as though men yield power with age but women grow into irrelevance. They can keep their lies for I have just gotten started.
I feel as though I just left the womb, my twenties are the warm-up for what I'm really about to do. Wait till you see me in my thirties, now that will be a proper introduction to the nasty, wild woman in me. How can I leave before the party's started, rehearsals begin at forty. I ripen with age, I do not come with an expiration date.
And now, for the main event, curtains up at fifty. Let's begin the show."

Learn about what Finding Julian means to me (and how I came up with the name in the first place). Pass me the box of tissues...
This August, I'll be launching my brand new group mentoring space where we can connect, explore our dreamscapes, chase our wildest ambitions, manifest all of the above, and PLAY. All from a foundation of cyclical living, of course.
