Welcome back to another episode of the Master Your Mind, Business, and Life podcast!
I have some pretty big news to share with you on today’s episode. But before we jump into the news… guess what today is?

It’s my birthday!

My birthday is super low key this year. Last year, one of my best friends and I ventured to New Orleans, but this year… well, both of my kids are still on Winter Break – yes – STILL.

So, we’re hitting up all of the FREE Birthday things today. Free Jersey Mike’s Sub, free Starbucks, free makeup at Ulta, free burrito at Moes. I mean, if it’s free, it’s me.

I’m also treating myself to a pedicure and manicure this evening; working my way back to that whole self-compassion episode that launched a few weeks ago. I’ve stepped up self care a lot, and continuing to honor my needs is something Im continuously trying to be mindful of.

I kind of set myself up for this episode back in August; when I saw that an episode would land on my birthday, I never thought twice about it and wrote down “birthday episode!” really big in my planner.

6 days before my birthday, I was still struggling for an idea on what exactly to cover.  Since my birthday is low key this year,  I turned to my Instagram community to ask them what they thought i should cover.

I had so many great responses such as, “tell us your goals for the year,” or “a year in review”, “a bucket list for the year.”… all amazing suggestions, but none of them felt right.

In hindsight, I should have lined up a “big”  guest for my birthday, or even someone I’m a Fan Girl of like, Numerologist Felicia Bender or Gary Vaynerchuck, or someone on that playing field.

Since that idea didn’t strike up until last week and well, it felt a little too late in the game to organize it all.

So, what did I do?

I do what I always do, and turned to my friend and mentor, Sherile Turner.

Sherile was basically said, “Lauren, what’s so special about your birthday in terms to your podcast?” and then I had an, “oh crap” moment because…she was right.

I hadn’t really thought about how my birthday relates to this podcast, other than Im’ the host. But for the rest of my listeners, it’s just another Wednesday and this is just another episode.

Instead of just it being another episode – I’ve decided to share some news with you that has been in the works for quite some time.


So… what’s the news?

In September of 2019, Sherile Turner (Mindfulness Expert at Cura Minds) and I will be co-hosting the The A.L.I.G.N.E.D Retreat.

A.L.I.G.N.E.D is an acronym that stands for: Abundance, Love, Intellect, Growth, Nurture, Evolve and Destiny.

The purpose of A.L.I.G.N.E.D is to guide people as they bring their life into full alignment. Growth, Healing, and personal development/evolvement are the keys to this retreat. As is PLAY! This 4 day retreat will have workshops in the mornings to provide you tools that you can use every day, to help master your life. After the workshops, it’s off to play, explore, dance, laugh, and relax.
