Lara was a wedding planner who started a blog for couples who were about to get married. She realized that there wasn’t very much support out there for couples to express their authentic love stories (2:00).

She was going through a hard time when her husband was deployed to Afghanistan, and she wanted to help others while she was going through this scary time.

“I did have a desire to instill hope in people in a time that felt hopeless” (2:23)

Lara’s blog really took off and she also started a magazine that took to the shelves. She then developed a workshop made to help other business owners utilize their talents and go after their big dreams (3:00).

“I think the biggest pivot in my story is crashing and burning because I was doing more and trying to be more, and running myself into the ground just trying to make it” (3:18)

Lara says in order to avoid hitting the burnout stage you need to learn how to shift your priorities to what situation is at hand (6:10).

She feels there is no way of functioning as moms and creatives, as wives, daughters and friends if we spread ourselves too thin (10:00).

Through her ‘Making things Happen‘ conference, Lara has encountered a lot of woman that say one of their biggest challenges is feeling isolated because they work from home (11:47).

When it comes to goal setting; most people that say they are not good at it and are really just afraid of the commitment and fear that they will fail at reaching that goal (17:20).

“Good goals are not about doing more or being more, it’s about cultivating what matters right where you are.” (18:52)

Lara believes that you are always growing, even though you can’t see it; sometimes the “awkward middles” add up to really meaningful things in our lives (31:16).

She shares how she replenishes herself in order to give more to others (38:00).
