Jason Pearl: Hello, and welcome to another episode of The Company We Keep podcast. I am your host, Jason Pearl, super excited for you to be with us today.

This podcast is for everyday business owners and entrepreneurs that want to think differently about success and growth and want to achieve a better balance in both business and life.

Today you are in for a treat. My guest is Lauren Johnson, a world-renowned mindset and performance coach. In the past, she's worked with some of sports, largest teams, and brands.

She works directly with professional athletes and she has her own coaching and consulting agency working with those folks.

In today's episode, we dive into everything mindset, whether you're a professional athlete or a business owner, or just somebody getting through the everyday, we have something for you today.

Lauren is able to bridge the gap between what sets apart the most elite athletes and what everyday people like you and I are able to do to continue to level up in our lives.

I am so excited for you to be introduced to her. So without further ado, here's the episode with Lauren Johnson. Let's get into it.

All right. All right. Welcome back to another episode of The Company We Keep podcast. I am super excited for the guest that we have today.

We are going to be joined by Lauren Johnson. I think you're absolutely going to love Lauren. She has quite an interesting background and, uh, she has been a mental performance coach and speaker.

She works with professional athletes. She works with military personnel and she works with business professionals, entrepreneurs.

Everybody that's looking for high-level success and growth, is the people that she's looking for his clients.

Prior to her starting her own personal brand in her coaching practice, she was the mental performance coach for the New York Yankees.

So she's obviously got some interesting stories there.

But she is a dynamic person that I have been following for a long time and really excited to introduce you to her.

So, Lauren, thank you very much. Welcome.

Lauren Johnson: Oh, man. Thanks so much for having me.

When you reached out to me, I was really, really excited to be on this podcast.

Well, great. We are, we are super excited to have you, so it's interesting because the, the name of this podcast is The Company We Keep.

So basically it's, it's talking about those that we surround ourselves with to help us level up.

And it's really interesting because the way you and I came to know each other, is through a mutual connection, Nick Cavuoto.

Nick is going to be on this season, uh, podcast as well.

So my audience has heard about him, but we'll get to know him as well, but. We had met because you were looking to potentially work with him.

And then you were looking for a reference. He gave you my name.

You called me randomly. I think on a Tuesday night, we ended up talking for about half an hour. We've really hit it off.

And, um, and that's how we came to know each other, which is really unique because the world that we live in if COVID taught us anything, it's that the world is really small.

Jason Pearl: So you're on the west coast. I'm on the east coast here we are recording online a video podcast and, uh, it's just, it's the company you keep is really important.

So I love it. I love it. So thanks for joining.

Lauren Johnson: Oh, I love it. I'm so glad that we got to connect through Nick and, uh, and you and I have been now following each other for a while now, and I love your stuff.

And so I'm just, I think that you're right. I think you're, it says a lot about who you surround yourself with.

And I told Nick this the other day, I said, It's impressive that every person he's introduced me to has been has become like a part of my circle.

And so you are no different Jason, so thank you.


Jason Pearl: Thank you. Well, I feel honored.

So let's talk about you because that's what this is about.

This podcast is going to be about you. So you're a mindset coach in layman's terms.

Can you maybe lay out what that means to somebody that may not be familiar with that term or what you do?

Lauren Johnson: Yeah, exactly.

That's a great, that's a great question to ask because a lot of people will say like, oh, what do you do?

And the first thing I start with is I work in sport psychology and people go, oh, you must be a sports psychologist.

And I'm like, no, I know that sounds confusing.

But, um, there are two different kinds of degrees that you can get to work in the field.

And if you want to be a sports psychologist to have the IST at the end of your name, you have to it. That requires a Ph.D.

I don't have my Ph.D. I have a Master's in performance psychology, and a lot of people in the applied world, not everybody, but probably the majority of people in applied sports psychology have a Master's degree.

And so my Master's is in performance psychology.

And so it's just a broader term for sports psychology.

Um, and the fact that I can work with so many different domains and we studied just the psychology of high-performers and how we can help to develop mental toughness by developing the way that we think and the way that we process things that are either happening to us, things in our lives, things that we're dealing with in a way that maintains a high level of performance, because a lot of people think mental toughness, it's just like, I'll push through it. Like don't ever talk about your weaknesses or, you know, your struggles.

And that's just so not true, actually looking them in the face and being able to process them in the way, in a way that maintains a high level of performance.

And that's what I help my performers do.

Jason Pearl: Yeah. You know you throw out, oftentimes you'll see someone's title and you'd be like, I don't really know exactly what that means,

but that's interesting that that distinction, because before you started your own coaching practice and your brand,

you were the mental performance coach for the Yankees.

So that had to be a really interesting type of role.

And what did you find is from an experience and like learning moments through that process?


Lauren Johnson: Oh, so many, I mean, it's hard to just choose one.

Um, when I got into, when I got into the Yankees, um, first of all, it was my dream job.

So when I, when they called me, I will never forget this.

They made fun of me for it for the longest time when they called me and offered me the job.

I said yes, before they even told me what my salary was going to be, and they're like, want to know what you're going to make?

I'm like, oh yeah, probably. Um, but I just knew that's where I wanted to be and completely fell in love with it.

And when I got there, man, one of the first things that just kind of like hit me in the face as there's so much you don't know.

And I think that in any area of our lives, especially the more we learn.

The more we learn how much we don't know.

And so it was a huge growth experience for me in so many ways, not just learning who I was and the kind of practitioner I was becoming.

But also learning about the culture of teams and yeah,

I've worked with some teams before, but working with an entire organization,

the support staff, working on a team myself before I was by myself.

So there were a lot of things that I learned and gained from that.

That has made me a better version of myself.

Jason Pearl: It's interesting because you pointed out that maybe, you know, you were maybe a little,

awestruck almost when you walk in the door, there are things that you didn't know.

And I think a lot of times.

Again, whether, whether it's an athlete or whether it's an entrepreneur like myself, you think you have to have it all figured out before you walk through the door or before you start the business, right.

Or before you take the leap, you have to have every box checked off and that's not true, is it?

Lauren Johnson: Absolutely not.

I think there's a couple of words that people misinterpret and they misinterpret change for refinement.

And they think, oh, well I have to change. I have to be this person.

I have to become this, but sometimes we don't need to change who we are.

We just learn to refine ourselves.

And so when I look at jumping into a new situation, when I look at, you know, starting my own company and all that stuff, I prefer the path to jump in and refine as I go, because I think it takes bravery to suck at something new.

And I know, like most recently, um, and for people listening that don't know this, um, I, my contract with the Yankees, um, I decided not to resign after February of this year, so I had to jump into my own company.

Um, and I'm sorry, I shouldn't say have to, I get, I got to, I mean, it was a privilege.

I was excited about it. It was a choice.

So for me, I was so excited to jump into this new business mine,

and it's so easy to jump into something and compare your day one to someone else's day 500, but you can't have the experience of 500 days without beginning with your first.

And so for me, I looked at it as, this is my day one, and I know with every day as I go, I'm going to refine and develop.

And so often we wait so long to start because we're so afraid of the beginning.

We're so afraid of failing, but failing is a form of progress.

And so for me, every time that I fail or I make a mistake, that's an opportunity for me to learn something and reapply it to become a better version of me.

Because if you're constantly making the same mistake, then you're not learning, but if you're never making new mistakes, you're not trying.

So for me, that's a big part of growth. Um, and one that I'm going through right now,

Jason Pearl: Absolutely.

And that was one of the things that struck me when you, you, and I spoke on the phone when we first met the first conversation we had because you were kind of explaining how you're making this transition.

And you were just like, no matter what, though, I'm going to do this, I'm going to kill it.

Like you were so motivated and you had already convinced yourself that you were going to succeed.

You just didn't know exactly what step 100 or step 1000 was going to look like you were just continuing to put one foot in front of the other, which is, which translates to whatever you do.

I've often said that when I started my consulting business, It's like, I got an, I'm getting an MBA that I'm not paying for it because I'm working with different clients and I'm seeing different situations and you can only learn so much out of a book or you can only learn so much in a classroom.

You just have to live life and those experiences really shape you,

and they educate you and they teach you where to go and where to avoid and all that type of stuff.

So that's great. That's great.

So when you're talking about, um, your history, the last five to 10 years, obviously you've had some, some different roles and now you're working for yourself.

Um, when, when you were going to school, did you always have a plan to do what you're doing today?

Or how has the last decade or so shaped, shaped where you are today?


Lauren Johnson: I never thought I'd be where I am sitting right now.

So when I was in college, I knew I wanted to work in sports initially because I grew up playing sports.

I grew up playing soccer since I was five years old and played all through college.

And it was my senior year of college.

And the third game in, I received my fifth concussion and my neurologist told me that if I wanted to remember my name by the age of 40, that's probably not safe to play anymore.

Because the damage from some of the previous ones was pretty bad and it was a hard reality because my identity as a soccer player was kind of stripped away from me.

And my identity as an athlete was kind of taken away from me.

And so it was a tough transition, but thank God I was on a team that allowed me to be a part of the team, even though I couldn't play.

So I remained with the team and I had decided to take an elective course in sports psychology. I hadn't even heard of that before.

So my degree undergrad was in kinesiology because I thought I was going to go into physical therapy.

But my favorite part, and I remember telling my mom is my favorite part of physical therapy was my connection with my clients because a lot of them were coming to me because they were setback, they had setbacks and injuries.

They were struggling feeling like they're behind.

And I felt like I really connected with that.

And I thought, man, what if I could have a job that was just that.

And then I stumbled into sports psychology.

And I remember being in that class and just my eyes were wide open because everything I learned, every story I heard, it was like, I was looking in the mirror.

I related so much to the material because I was the athlete that needed it.

I was the one who constantly got in my own way, who limited myself.

When I fell down, I would just like beat myself into the ground more as I would, we all know what that feels like.

And I thought to myself, what kind of athlete would I have been if I would've known these things?

And then I thought, how many athletes can I help now that I do?

And what kind of person can I become now that I know these things?

And so that's kind of what started this journey for me.

And I ended up going on to get my Master's degree in performance psychology and, uh, right at the end, right.

When I graduated, I had two job offers, which is like a grad student's dream.

You're like, yes. And so I took my time to choose and chose one and turned on the other.

The only catch with the one I chose was that it was going to take about six months to get placed.

Um, you know, at the location that they were going to send you to, and it was very normal for this position.

So I thought, okay, that's fine.

Um, six months go by and I don't hear anything.

And other people that I knew got similar positions were waiting to be placed, were getting placed.

And I thought, Hmm, interesting.

So I reached out and they said, Hey, just checking to see, you know, when I should be expecting placement.

And then I got a response that said, we're sorry. The job is no longer available.

And so here I was right out of grad school to job offers on cloud nine, six months later, I have none.

And it's not like you can type into you know, sports, psychology jobs. They just don't exist like that.

Like at least right now. And certainly at the time.

So I reached out to everybody that I knew, and there was just, I kept hearing the same thing.

Lauren, you need experience.

You need to experience.

And that has to be the most frustrating thing that any grad student can hear.

You know, you need experience and experience.

Well, how the heck am I going to get experience?

If I don't, if I can't get a chance?

So I decided to get a job at Starbucks because I needed to make money.

So I'm working at Starbucks and this one day changed my entire life.

I'm working in the drive-thru.

And this guy pulls up and when you're working to drive you through, it's your job to entertain the customer.

So his drinks being made and I'm chatting them up and he goes, so are you in school?

Which was a fair question, cause people were.

And I said, no, actually I just finished.

And he goes, great. Would you get your degree in?

And I proudly told him performance psychology, and he just starts laughing like.

Full-on belly laughing to the point where I'm so confused.

I finally had to ask him.

I said, what's so funny.

He goes, oh, you got one of those degrees you'll never use.

Jason Pearl: Thanks, guy!

Lauren Johnson: My jaw just dropped.

I couldn't believe he just said that to me.

And I was so upset and I was so offended and I was so angry.

I had to walk away.

Somebody else had to give him his drink.

And then it got worse.

Like throughout the day I just kept getting more and more mad at this.

And I thought to myself, then I got mad because I was mad because I was like, this doesn't matter.

Why are you letting him have power over you?

And then later that night it hit me.

And I thought to myself, I'm not mad because he was rude, even though he was, I'm mad because partially what he said, right.

If you turn around at the first sign of adversity, you're not going to get very far.

And here I was somebody that was planning on coaching people, how to push through their own adversity.

And I wasn't willing to even do it myself.

It's like I hit the dead end and I was like, all right, well, I'll turn around instead of finding another way, finding another path.

And so that was the day that I had to really look myself in the mirror and have that hard discussion and say, =if you want to be the best mental coach in the world, how the hell are you going to be that if you're not willing to take your own advice. Right?

So that was the day I Googled how to start your own consulting company.

And I started my own consulting company, not knowing a dang thing about it.

And I cold-called a bunch of people and emailed probably 10 people a day and cut a lot of no's.

A lot of people didn't even respond.

And every once in a while I got a yes, and I did that for about a year's time, just built up my resume that way.

That was the experience that I got.

And after a year's time, I got an opportunity to interview with the Yankees and I got the job.

Jason Pearl: Wow. Well, see, I did not know that about, I did not know that about your history, where you basically just hustled and grinded to get a client here and a client there to build a portfolio to then become, you know,

the mental performance coach for the, you know, one of the biggest brands in sports, right?

If not the biggest. That's amazing because it just shows that if there's an obstacle, I tell my kids this, if there's an obstacle, you can either stop.

You can go around it on each side, you can go through it.

Or you can go over it, but if you stop at the end of the road, right?

Like that obstacle has beat you. It won because you stopped.

And that is something that you did not do, which is amazing.

What a great story.

And it's so relevant.

There are so many kids coming out of school that I've just spent tons of money on a degree.

And you know, if they're really passionate about it, really want to do something with it, there's going to be obstacles.

They gotta run through it. So

Lauren Johnson: Yeah, you gotta, you gotta find a way.


Jason Pearl: Um, so one of the things that I think is really interesting and I know the audience would love to hear is.

For what you do and how you coach others. Um, what are, what is maybe one or two daily habits that you personally do in your life in Lauren's life that you feel could translate to anyone else's life that's listening today that can help them out?

Lauren Johnson: Yeah. Um, so actually two things.

One is I like the way that you start your day, it primes the rest of it.

So for me, I actually start with a routine at the end of the night.

So the night before what I do is I write out there's two sections I write and the first one is I schedule.

So I schedule all meetings that I have.

Then I have a list of my most important tasks.

And that's where I write out the things I want to get done.

And I put timestamps next to them on how long I think it should take me.

And then I organize them in order of priority.

And so I, you know, I won't do number two until I finished number one. And I’ll go down that through the list that way.

So, what it does is by the time I wake up, I already have what I'm going to do. If I wait till the morning had something that like, it's almost my brain doesn't stop.

It starts keeps thinking about the things I need to get done.

So that night before really has been a game-changer for me because when I wake up,

I do my other routine, which is my morning routine, which is I read every morning, I meditate and I have my coffee and I journal.

And so those things are things that help.

Those are investments in myself.

And so that helps me.

And then I'm off to the races with the rest of my stuff for the rest of the day.

So that's something that I do every day and it was actually super interesting.

I was at a coffee shop yesterday and I ended up meeting this really impressive guy who works in premier league soccer.

And he said, one of the things that he does is it's called CRIPE.

And he said if you like spell it out,

C stands for career.

R stands for relationships.

I stands for intellectual.

P stands for personal development

and E stands for emotions.

And so he said, he looks at that and every day, or I'm sorry, P's for physical, not personal development,

you could say personal development while working out.

And so what he does is during his day, he makes sure he touches every one of those points.

Something to help develop him in his career, develop a relationship, develop his intellectual, develop his physical body, and then develop like himself emotionally or spiritually.

And it's something I'm now adding to my, uh, to my every day, but something that's super interesting when you said that, um, it's something I just now added.

Uh, recently, cause I just talked to him about this yesterday, but I will definitely report back on it.

Jason Pearl: Yeah, I love it. It's it.

I find that, um, there are two changes that I made in my life when I knew I needed to kind of get to the next level,

one of which was a nighttime habit, which was putting the phones down. Right.

And going to bed at an appropriate time and getting the amount of rest and getting up early enough to be able to make time for the reading.

Right. Uh, you know, things of that nature.

Most of my listeners know like a very spiritual person, I'm a Christian.

So like I start with the Bible in the morning and that's something that really helps me.

It helps. It helps level set my day I used to say, I can't do it because I don't have enough time in the day.

I've got two kids, I've got a business, I've got a wife,

I've got all these responsibilities, but you're just choosing what you want to leave out. Right.

So if you build those habits, I love what you said.

It's not what happens in the morning.

You're setting your day up the night before. Right.

So you're setting it up. So you can't do that.

You can't avoid the thing you want to do in the morning.

Cause you've already set it up to happen.

Lauren Johnson: So yeah. It's like momentum building. And the things that are in motion tend to stay in motion.

And so I start my day in motion. I start my day doing the things that I know set me up for success.


Jason Pearl: So as we continue with this, so the next question I have for you is around, and you kind of just touched on it, but what fills your cup?

So you talk about what you're pouring out to a lot of people on a daily basis.

What feels Lauren's cup?

What do you do and who do you surround yourself with that makes you the person?

Lauren Johnson: Oh, that's such a good question. I really like this question.

Um, it kind of reminds me of like Formula One drivers.

So in Formula One, there's something that everybody does and they all pit stop.

And it's interesting because a lot of times when they pit stop, it's not because they've blown a tire or there's like a really bad that issue with their car.

It's a preventative measure to make sure they can perform longer.

And do, you know, perform long term and the things that the indicators that tell them they need to pit stop are things like tire pressure, fuel level, et cetera.

And so for me, the things that, that my indicators that tell me it's time to pit stop are when I am not fully engaged when I am constantly distracted.

Because I know for myself, I'm pretty good at remaining present or at least having a technique to bring myself back to the present when I become distracted.

When I struggled to do that's an indicator that I need to pit stop. I need to refuel.

When I start to feel insanely overwhelmed. Maybe I've overbooked myself.

Maybe I, underestimated how long something would take.

That's another time where I tell myself I need a pit stop.

And a third one is when I haven't spent enough time with my family.

And for me, that's really important because I didn't have it for a long time.

When I was with the Yankees, I mean, it's a very demanding position.

And anyone in pro sports knows that relationships, it's definitely a challenge.

You definitely sacrifice a lot to be in that position, in that role.

And so I think that now that I'm not in it it's been something that I've really tried to um, put a lot of time into.

So those are the really important things that I know are key indicators for me. And so when you're saying what fills your cup?

I think of it as that pit stop, like when I hit stop, the thing that refuels me is one being with my family, like being with my husband, taking our dog to the lake, you know, being with my parents, his parents, like that's super important, valuable even with my friends.

Like I love being around, just our friends and, developing those relationships.

Another one is time to myself and where I get away from technology.

And I will just be, and so sometimes again, I, my dog is great for that because I'll leave my phone at home and I'll just go on a long walk with him and being outside, what we know is our heart rate slows down when we go outside and it really clears our head.

And so for me, especially when I'm maybe I'm grinding through a tough project and just instead of grinding and pushing myself through it, when I'm struggling to be creative, I try and get away from it.

And what it does is it kind of allows our subconscious to work, without kind of getting in the way of it.

So that's something else I do.

And then I always go back to my physical and my physical health, my mental health, um, and just health in general in terms of what I eat.

So I go back to, you know, the basics of like eating healthy food, being on a good workout routine,

and then making sure like mentally I have enough time to myself.

So those are kind of the big ones for me.

And I also focus on the people that, you know, fill that cup, not deplete it because there are, there's a really great analogy my friend uses, which is:

the difference between a fountain and a drain.

And we all have both in our lives and fountains obviously really fill us up and they leave us with more energy than when we started.

And then drains are the opposite.

Drains can really drain us of that energy.

And so I try to get much close to change my proximity to drains, to be further away.

And I really try to surround myself with people that are fountains in my life.

Jason Pearl: Yeah. I love that analogy. That is a great analogy. Fountains and drains.

I've never heard it and I will use it, but I'll, I'll footnote you on it. All right.

Lauren Johnson: Well, I didn't come up with it, but I definitely use it. It's a good one.


Jason Pearl: So some fun questions now.

So I have, I, I said I have two daughters, 14 and 9.

Um, and, and they joke with me all the time.

And they say that I use words that are bigger than I should use when I'm talking to kids.

And it's funny, cause I'm not like the guy that like uses a lot of ton of big words, but they have this funny segment where they say it's called

"Big Words With Deeds."

They call me Deeds instead of Dad.

So, um, I told them as a joke, I said, well when I do my podcast, season two, I'm going to make this a segment.

So are there any words that you use in your vernacular that, that, that you think are maybe larger than normal, you speak in pretty clear terms?

Lauren Johnson: Um, I like to keep it as simple as possible, to be honest with you.

Uh, because people that I work with, don't care about big words, they don't care about the big terms.

They want to know what they need to do and how they should be doing it and why that's it.

And so to keep it as simple as possible, something I really work on.

Um, but I guess one, that's a good one. I don't think it's complicated.

And I think most people are going to know exactly what it means, but in psychology, self-efficacy is just your belief or your confidence in your ability to get the job done.

And so something that I help increase is self-efficacy.

Jason Pearl: I like it. I'll bring that up to them tonight.

There we go.

There'll be our dinner table conversation.

So one of the things that, I know has come up before is advice that you would give to just kind of the, anyone listening to this podcast about,

how to get started or how to make sure that they get that self-efficacy in the right spot.

Lauren Johnson: Um, yeah, and I think this one's more of a reminder, um, when we're going through something and when

we're struggling and maybe you're doing everything you think you should be doing and you're not seeing results.

And so I think that no matter what we're going through, if we trip and fall if we struggle if it doesn't come off the way that we want to if we don't succeed and we fail because somebody tells us no one door closes is, remember that number one, to zoom out a little bit,

look at the big picture.

But number two, remember that growth is an evolutionary process, not a revolutionary, right?


Jason Pearl: Love that, love that you were dropping some nuggets today.

I will love that. So another fun question.

So when you do a podcast and people listen on Spotify,

Spotify gives you the ability to see the type of music that the people that are listening to your podcast are actually listening to outside of your podcast.

So knowing that we're going to be tagging you in social posts, and we're going to be putting this out in the universe.

Do you have any guesses of the people that follow you?

The type of music that they're going to listen to, or an artist or two that you think will show up?

Lauren Johnson: Oh, okay.

There's a couple, I have like a couple of wide ranges, so I like almost all music.

Um, I like eighties and nineties rap and hip hop.

And then I also like, um, James Taylor, Yeah, James Taylor is like my creative music.

It gets my creative juices flowing.

And then I also like, I love country. So Luke Combs.

Um, so yeah, those maybe some of them that might pop up, but man, it's kind of like, it runs the gamut, so I'm not even sure what's going to pop up, but it may be a little bit of everything.


Jason Pearl: Well, we'll make sure to share what your, what your listeners are listening to.

So it'll be interesting.

That'd be maybe like, you know, Snoop Dogg and Garth Brooks next to each other or something like that.

Yeah, I love it. I love it. All right.

So the final question I have for you, I could, I could be on this with you for hours, but I know you've got stuff to do.

Um, what is your favorite guilty pleasure,

Lauren Johnson: Reality TV.

Jason Pearl: Reality TV.

Lauren Johnson: Real Housewives.

Anything that like the worse it is, the more I love it.

And my husband to this day will tell you. I would have never guessed that you liked this stuff, but I swear to God,

it just, for me, I can tune out of whatever's going on and just it's entertaining to me.

Jason Pearl: All right. Cool. Cool.

Any, uh, any questions for me or anything we didn't cover that you want to make sure we touch on?


Lauren Johnson: I have a fun question for you.

Jason Pearl: Okay.

Lauren Johnson: This was asked to me on a podcast and it totally took me back.

I was like fascinating. What a cool question. Do you believe in aliens?

Jason Pearl: It's funny that you bring this up. I was on Twitter the other day and I got lost in this thread about uFO's and how the military released some statements like off the coast of Virginia Beach of these aircraft that they saw flying it, like, seven times the speed of sound.

There was all this data and my mind was blown.

So I was just like, that question is such a great question.

I was just looking at that, that Twitter feed, like I think it was last night.

So the answer is they very well could be.

Um, cause there's a lot that we don't know.

Lauren Johnson: Yeah, no.

And that was asked to me on the podcast and I was like, what a fascinating question I was like, so thanks for playing along.


Jason Pearl: Yeah, no, that's, that is awesome.

And I'll tell you what, I've had fun with this.

I know my audience is gonna love this, and I would love to do this again at some point in time.

If you're up for it, this is, this is a ton of fun.

Maybe we can dive deeper into your, uh, your reality TV loves,

Lauren Johnson: I don't know if we want to go there.

Jason Pearl: So how can my audience keep up with you?

What's the best way to go?

Is there a website or is there a social media platform you prefer? How can we find you?

Lauren Johnson: So the best way to find me is actually through my website because I got married a couple of years ago and my name is a quite common one, Lauren Johnson.

So I, all of my stuff, social handles are different.

It would take me hours to read them off to you.

So all spelled out Lauren Johnson And Co, um, has all my social media links on there.
