Myths Of Motherhood Interview
Lauren often hears the following -Myths of Motherhood':
1) It is not possible to be a Mum and run a business: Lauren asks, 'What if being a mum allowed you to create more? Why not have it all? Why not use being a mother to your full advantage? What if becoming a Mum could allow you to create more, not less? What if you having a business was a contribution to your kids, not a sacrifice?"
2) Being a good parent is all about sacrifice: 'Have you started making sacrifices -for your family'? Have you started giving up parts and pieces of you -for your kids'? The problem with that is, the more you give up, the less of you there is in the world. And the lessening of you is never a contribution. Not to your children, to you, or to anyone!" Lauren warns.

The Pragmatics Of Dealing With Working Mom Guilt
The number one question that I get all the time from working moms is some variation of: “How can I go to the office or even travel to another country without my kid(s) and not feel bad about it?”
Guilt, as well as its cousins, shame and blame, really have only this purpose – to control you and to distract you from what you are really aware of. Whenever you feel guilty, recognize it isn’t real, it doesn’t mean you are doing anything wrong, and ask: “If I wasn’t feeling guilty right now what would I be aware of?”
Children will manipulate you with guilt, as will adults! My kids try this one all the time, pouty lips and tears. ‘But moooooom you can’t walk away from me, I neeeeeeed you!’ They’re only one-year old (twins) so they don’t actually say this out loud but you can totally hear it in their heads. Two ready-born masters of manipulation.

This mum of twin bubs has found a way to have it all AND do it all
When Lauren found out she was pregnant, she really didn’t have her life stitched up. An American, in love with an Australian on a traveller’s visa about to have unplanned twins sounds a bit like the intro to some kind of romantic comedy, but fascinatingly, the entrepreneur and business course facilitator found a way to have it all AND do it all.
“It was do or die,” Lauren says of her decision to really go for it -building her business right at the onset of a whole new life with twins.
“I wasn’t willing to create a smaller life in order to have kids, rather I made the choice to actually commit to my life. All of it.”

The Simle Moms
Empowering you to create a life worth living
With the rise of social media, the prevalence of judgment on other parents has reached epidemic proportions. A recent US study found that 90% of Moms and 85% of Dads feel judged by others, and nearly half of all parents feel judged almost all the time. According to Sunshine Coast business coach and mother of twins, Lauren Marie, this constant demand to conform to others’ rules not only undermines a parent’s wellbeing ...

How to Make Pregnant With Twins A Whole Lot Easier
“You’re pregnant…and there are two.”
Legs go to jelly. Doctor’s talking turns to distant blurry noise.
The experience of pregnancy, starting with the day you discover the news, is hard to describe. Pregnant with twins is a whole other animal. Surprise pregnancy with twins in a foreign country in a brand new relationship with an irregular ‘job’ and no health insurance… let’s just say it was a bit of a shock.

Thriving Through The First Year Of Parenthood (With Twins!)
April 14, 2017
The first year with twins is like running a marathon every day on no sleep, half wanting to die at the same time you’ve never been so glad to be alive, and your heart exploding over and over from the love and laughter. I’ve never laughed or cried so much in my life! Can you…
Are you up for having it all? Loving life and having way too much fun?
March 24, 2017
What if you could have it all? What if it was okay to love your job, love creating and love being a mama? Rather than buying into overwhelm, have you ever acknowledged how much fun it is for you to add to your life? Learn the tools to create a life and living that contributes…
I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how grateful I am for the private session we had. The awareness and the tools I got from it have been incredibly helpful and they continue to change my reality the more I apply them. I quickly and easily got a new job that I’m actually excited about. I feel much happier, I have a lot more energy, and most of all, whenever I start to feel that wall come up I’m totally empowered to clear it, and continue to create my life. Thank you so much! You’re awesome :)

You are absolutely one of the most effective facilitators I”ve met! I was about changing my mind on going to Costa Rica and a couple of things happened to keep me going. One of them was listening to your free tele-call! Thank you so much. As a graduate level teacher in University, I know a little bit about effective facilitation, and less effective facilitation. You got it going on, Lauren! So authentic, which is the underlying nature of being (also an area of my ‘expertise’ being) You just rock with ease when facilitating.
