We’re excited to introduce you to the always interesting and insightful Lauren Roberts. We hope you’ll enjoy our conversation with Lauren below.
Lauren, looking forward to hearing all of your stories today. If you had a defining moment that you feel really changed the trajectory of your career, we’d love to hear the story and details.
When I sat with this question I really thought about what shifted for me to have the courage to start Rise Up Live Bright. What came forward was a pivotal point in my story. I was about 26 years old and extremely unhappy within myself. It was like knowing the sun is shining, however, there is a cloud blocking the beams of light from hitting your skin. Then one day I fell to my knees and crawled to a pillow on the floor, then I meditated. I felt my energy field expanding, the pressure leaving my chest, and then unconditional love washed over me. I knew at that moment that there was no going back.
I believe why this moment in my timeline is so pivotal in my professional career is because it opened the door for all the possibilities of my truest potential. Before that moment I did not think it was possible for me to own my own business and actually be a leader.
Of course there are so many nuances to my story that brought me to where I am at, however that particular moment in my journey continues to stick out.
Long story short, my defining moment was committing to healing because without committing to my own well being, I do not think I would be here today being interviewed for your magazine.
When people ask me what advice I have for someone wanting to start their own business I give them this pearl. If you take the space to pause, tune in, and get to know yourself better the answer will come forward. That answer is the direction you should flow into because it is your intuition guiding you.
The saying is “ Follow your gut” and I fully believe in that.
Great, appreciate you sharing that with us. Before we ask you to share more of your insights, can you take a moment to introduce yourself and how you got to where you are today to our readers?

Let’s talk about resilience next – do you have a story you can share with us?
I believe having a beautiful dyslexic brain has given me resilience. When I was in 4th grade, this was back in the 90’s, I was “diagnosed” with dyslexia. At the time I don’t feel that the school system really understood this diagnoses, they lumped me within the group “Slow Learning”. As a brilliantly creative child, my brain just operated differently then the norm and it still does. This meant that I learned in a different way than most kids in my class, but because the school system liked to assume that all children learn the same, I was considered to have a disability. For most of my childhood and teenage years, I was basically told that learning would be difficult for me and that I would not amount to much when it came to education. Even when my peers learned that I had dyslexia they would make fun of me, and or assume I was dumb, and treat me less than.
It wasn’t until I went to college in NYC when I was 24, that I learned that I was more than capable of achieving success in school. I got honor roll, was in the principles academic club, and received my AA, when I moved home from Valencia.
My dyslexia has gifted me with so many beautiful things, one is resilience because I have learned to persevere no matter what life throws my way, no matter what stories others created for me, no matter how hard something’s can be, I can always figure it out in my way, and no matter what I will always find a unique and different way.
Other than training/knowledge, what do you think is most helpful for succeeding in your field?
What is most helpful in succeeding in my field is the ability to do your own personal healing. In the field I work in, it is important to also put in the effort and work on personal healing. This allows for the healing work to be integral and of the highest of energy. If the business owner heals and creates space for growth it will reflect in the business it self.
As well as, hold on to your vision with openness to pivot and evolve. I have learned to lean into a growing point in business and not resist it, because it is an invitation to expand your business to serve your clients and it’s community in the best way.
Lastly, everyday practice gratitude for what and where you are at in the present day.
