About Head Shot(1)Welcome to You Be You Girl! My name is Lauren and I am so stinkin’ excited you’re here! You might be wondering, what’s this chick’s blog about?! Well, I’m still figuring that out! Yikes…I probably shouldn’t be admitting that out loud, right? More on that later… But, if you’re anything like me, I often feel like I’m on the struggle bus trying to figure out life. What do I want to be when I grow up? (Yup, I still feel this way in my 30’s) What’s the secret to true happiness? What is the best way to manage this whole work/life balance thing? And how do I do all that while maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine?

Do any of these questions ever pop into your head? …Yes?! Well lady, you are in the right place and you are not alone! We are all a work in progress but I believe women are capable of incredible things and that we can all help each other find happiness, health and success!

What makes me an expert on this topic, you ask?? Well, I’m not! But, I’m always seeking ways to improve my mind, body, soul, relationships, finances, home…the list goes on and on.

Something else you should know about me…I love, love, love to read! That’s right, I am a self-proclaimed bookworm and I am proud of it! I read anything from historical fiction to juicy young adult series to personal and professional development books. Getting lost in a good book is my ultimate happy place whether it’s curled up in my favorite chair, sitting on our front porch or listening to an audio book in my car.

Lastly, nothing gets me more pumped up than watching, hearing or reading about women empowering women! I cannot get enough of it!
