In this episode, Yvonne and Lauren discuss:

  • How defining “having it all” for yourself is the access to creating unapologetic fulfillment
  • Why you should ditch your Busy-Badge”
  • Honoring where you are, forgiving yourself, and allowing yourself grace.
  • The miracle of time blocking.
  • How to build a strong business with a team of expert freelancers
  • The simplicity of starting a freelancing business.


Key Takeaways:

  • Doing it all is not the same as having it all.
  • Work hard but work intentionally.
  • We all have 24 hours in a day – you are in control of each block of time in your day.
  • Pick one place and show up there really, really well.
  • Keep going and show up consistently.
  • There are people out there who need to hear what you have to say.


“You may have a six-figure salary, a super nice car, and a great house, but if you are not unapologetically at peace with what you are doing, that’s a compromise that I think you should evaluate.” Lauren Golden

Hundreds of families today are happier and more fulfilled thanks to Lauren and her online programs. Whether you’re a single mom, a military mom, or a mom in a two-parent family who doesn’t want to sacrifice your time with your babies in order to provide for them, Lauren wants you to know that you don’t have to.
