Becoming Wellthy Headshot 1

 Hello! I'm Lauren.

I am a wife, dog mom, 2nd sister of five girls, coolest aunt ever and hopefully someday a mom. Aspiring entrepreneur by day, blogger by night and occasionally a photographer on the weekends. Life gets pretty busy, and I haven't even thrown kids into the mix. I am in my late 30’s (still sounds so odd), was born and raised in California and now live in my dream location - Oregon!

I started this blog as a way to share all the things I learned about becoming wellthy (more on that below). I've always wanted to have the financial freedom to be my own boss and pursue my idea of happiness. I just wasn't always sure what that was. I left my corporate job in a soul sucking industry in 2014 and started working from home as an executive assistant. Being away from the cubicle nightmare was nice, but at the end of the day I wasn't working for myself.

Then I lost my job. I took it as the Universe telling me it's now or never. So I turned my focus back to this little space of mine, and decided I wanted to document my journey of learning how to figure out this whole pursuit of happiness. And I realized that often in times of my own adversities, I still loved building up and encouraging the people around me. Whether it's with an uplifting story, a homeopathic remedy or an inspirational quote, I always had something to pull out of my bag. So I figured why not share it with the world?

 So What's This Wellth Business?

I want to show you how easy it is to become wellthy. What’s that, you say? No, its not a typo.

Wellth is the idea that success is found in a lifestyle devoted to mental, physical, and emotional health. It’s about finding happiness, health and abundance in the small things. You might need a million dollars to be wealthy, but certainly not to be wellthy. This blog is about my journey to financial well being and my quest to find real joy – and how to make my way through all of it with a sense of humor. I do not declare myself a certified therapist, financial adviser or even a comedian. I am just a simple girl who lost her job and decided to throw caution to the wind to pursue a little happiness, trying to navigate it all with a little wit. And I am here to share it with you, and hope to inspire you along the way.

I have read books, scoured the internet, fallen asleep scrolling through Pinterest on my phone (let’s not pretend you haven’t done that), browsed websites and anything else I could possibly do to find the way to lead a life I was proud of. A life free from corporate America, free from debt, free from toxins and free from negativity. This is my journey, and I love to inspire others so I am grateful that you are here to follow along with me. 


Let's build it together.
