Lauren worked hard for years to earn her MBA and become a CPA, but left a promising tax accounting career behind to become a blogger. She and her business partner Alex quit their 9-5s, sold almost everything they owned, and went all-in. 

Lauren is a ground-breaking blogger and the epitome of what it means to be an authentic entrepreneur growing her tribe online. What began as a side hustle quickly evolved into a full-time blog earning over $100,000 in its first year.

Then in 2017, Alex and Lauren founded Create and Go, an online blog that teaches others how to make money blogging. Thanks to their effective social media marketing strategies, they are now making over $100,000 per month. Today, they are traveling the world digital nomad style. On July 3, 2018, Lauren booked a one-way ticket to Berlin, Germany, and she’s been traveling ever since. 23 countries and counting. Now, Lauren travels with the Wifi Tribe (#wifitribe), an organization of professionals coworking remotely and coliving all over the world. 

Alex and Lauren have taken their business, and their life, to the next level! They have reached the milestones of financial independence and location independence - they are truly on FIRE.

Now Lauren is looking to help others grow their side hustle blog to full-time blog, and make a full-time income! 


“Alex and I spent every waking moment living and breathing our online business over the first 3 years to take it to where it’s at today and while it was very difficult and trying at the best of times, it paid off one hundred-fold.”

 “I’ve made it. I can’t believe this is my life.”
