For years, Lauren Brollier poured herself into a rewarding career as a reading specialist. She worked with underserved communities and was really making a difference in people’s lives. However, she also knew she wasn’t being paid what she was worth.
“I would work 50-hour work weeks and then at the end of the month I would get that paycheck, $3,500. And it seemed a little bit like a cruel joke.”
Deep down, Lauren knew she wasn’t living her dream life. She knew she could create a bigger impact AND earn more money.
Since she’d been a little girl, Lauren had secretly dreamed of being an inspirational speaker. While her friends were watching Saturday morning cartoons, she used to watch Joyce Meyer Ministries.
However, she pushed her dream aside for years, thinking that the only solution to get ahead was to work harder.
The problem was that working harder made her life worse. She missed out on spending time with friends and family. She was stressed often and exhausted from work. She gained weight, developed high blood pressure and often felt no energy to do anything but work.
Her marriage was also far from what she’d hoped it would be. Only a short time after getting married, her husband grew distant, slept far away from her and avoided spending time with her.
Lauren began to think that there was something wrong with her.
“One day around Thanksgiving he came home, and he looked me in the eyes, and he said, ‘I don’t love you and I don’t want to be married to you.’ And he didn’t stop there. He listed everything he found wrong with me. ‘You’re not fit enough. You’re not outdoorsy enough. You don’t make enough money.’ And then he said something that really hurt. He said, ‘You bring nothing to the table.’ And in that moment, I believed him.”
She later found out he had a girlfriend and had been living a double life for several months. She was devastated – furious with him and most of all with herself. She felt as if everything had been stripped from her.
It was at her lowest point in life that a friend asked Lauren to attend DreamBuilder LIVE. And it was there that she found the path to living out her childhood dream of being an inspirational speaker – as a DreamBuilder Coach!
Immersing herself in the DreamBuilder Coach training helped her to see why things had happened the way they did in her life. She realized she was the master of her life, and could create anything she dreamed of. She then took the next step towards her dreams and became a Certified Life Mastery Consultant.
Since then, Lauren has booked over 50 speaking engagements, served 44 clients and generated over $75,000 in income. And she did it all in HALF the time she spent teaching! She now works just 25-30 hours per week and has more time to spend with the people that matter to her.
Lauren’s health has improved, too! Her blood pressure is down, and she’s lost 11 pounds. She’s developed a new relationship with her body and feels stronger than ever. In addition, she manifested a new love in her life. Lauren and her partner go on vacations, spend time together and are enjoying a passionate, loving relationship.
“I want to say I didn’t just do this. I surrounded myself with a structure of support… And I have to say that every single member of this faculty has walked with me on my personal journey, on my professional journey, and I could not have done it without that.”
