Today we’re going Behind the Boss Mask with business marketing strategist for authentic women entrepreneurs, Lauren June. A former full-time emergency bookkeeper, Lauren’s business has transitioned over the years from financial to coaching to strategy (but not always seamlessly!).
In this interview, we talk about what it’s like to be the one people call with everything is going wrong, establishing a solid foundation for your business ASAP, how an info-rich community can change your entire business, + making time for travel as an introvert with a partner’s anything-but-predictable schedule.
