  1. Omg couples that want to work together?! I need to listen to this next time I’m doing chores (when I listen to podcasts haha– right now I’m checking in on all my faves and doing some cross P).

    My hubs owns a digital marketing company and I’m a model and wannabe blogger. Sometimes he wants me to work for him and eventually just create this online empire but I always worry it’d be bad for our relationship to not have anything separate… I’ll deff be listening to this soon!

    I love following you on snap and have been meaning to listen to one for awhile now anyway!

    1. Listening to podcasts while doing chores is my favorite! Working with Michael can be challenging at times but it’s also SO rewarding. Thanks for following along : ) xx

  2. Hi Lauren! I just listed to your podcast which happens to be my first ever and I loved it! I told everyone at my work about it and about your blog. I told my boyfriend that I think we are kindred spirits! Your obsessed with dogs, chia seeds, Suja juice & pretty much everything that I’m obsessed with as well. Cheers!??

  3. I LOVED this podcast! Mike & Jennifer were a real treat (and you’re right – GREAT voices), and it was really neat to hear about the early days of TSC. As a long time follower, I had no idea about those true beginning roots so it was really cool to hear. I also loved their advice on slow months as a business owner. Great episode per usual! xx Shannon

    PS – if you want a fun prank on Michael’s insta, my favourite one to do to my bf is to “borrow his phone” & get on one of the Kardashians or Jenners and write LB or first ???

  4. Hey Lauryn, this was your best episode yet! I really enjoyed the content and the four of you really meshed well together on air. In past episodes I would hear a lot of talking over each other and many interruptions that would lead to tangents which sometimes meant someone was not able to finish their point.Your voice is all over the place in other episodes. Its high, its low, its faint, its strong. In this episode your voice was consistently strong and in the microphone the whole time. You sounded great and much more professional! As did everyone else. I hope you enjoyed the feedback. Keep it up! You guys are getting so much better.

    1. Thank you SO much for the feedback Courtney! We really appreciate it and it means a lot. Thanks for listening and following along : ) xx

  5. Hi lauryn, ive been following the podcast from the start and i love it so much! You guys are so funny and the one with the nanz is my fav!
    The only thing is, i listen to it when im going to work so when im on the bus/train and sometimes the sound is just not loud enough because even when i put the sound of my iPhone 6s at the max i cant hear anything you say sometimes 🙁 is there anything you can do about it?

    1. Aw oh no Maureen! I will work on speaking clearly and directly into the microphones for the future. Thanks so much for listening and all of your support! xx

  6. Hi Lauryn,

    Love your podcast. Would love to hear you talk a little about your childhood. Sounds like you moved out of your parents’ house early? Also, I didn’t even realize until super recently that you have TWO sisters. What!

  7. What i do not realize is in truth how you are now not
    really a lot more smartly-appreciated than you may be now.
    You are so intelligent. You know thus significantly when it comes
    to this matter, produced me individually imagine it
    from a lot of various angles. Its like women and men aren’t fascinated except it is something to do with Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs excellent. Always maintain it up!
