Everyone has a story.
What do you want to do?
Your life is defined by the stories you tell. I want to help you tell better stories.
Whether you want to publish your memoir, start a blog, or simply use journaling techniques to improve your life, I’ve got the support you need to tell your story.
When the world tells you to be smaller, I want you to be more grandiose.
When the world tells you to change, I want you to invest even more in yourself.
When the world tries to silence your story, I want you to shout it from the rooftops.
Howdy, I’m Lauren! A storyteller, orator, adventurer, and writing coach.

Her work allows all of us to be unapologetically ourselves, no matter what size, shape, color or flavor we come in. The world needs more Lauren Marie Fleming.Steph Jagger
