Business and Life Coaching, Personal Goals, Calculated Risks, Success, Distractions, and More with Lauren Rilling

On today’s episode I had the pleasure of meeting with Lauren Rilling about coaching, personal goals, success, and the numerous distractions that hold us back. We discussed the importance of being able to set boundaries and say no, but also the reverse of that— not being afraid to get uncomfortable, reach out, and get a no back from a prospective friend, client, or opportunity. We also set some ambitious goals for ourselves including discussing the launch of a mentorship and coaching program for you, the listener of this podcast. Please sit back, relax, and enjoy our conversation.
