Podcast #158 // Lauren Dufresne on Cut Color Culture

I had the best time chatting with Lauren Dufresne about changing careers, becoming a stylist, owning her own PR Partners, what it’s like managing people, and how she creates a personalized customer experience for her clients. We also chat about Lauren’s latest endeavor – podcast hosting! We talk about why she wanted to start a podcast, what she’s learned, and why we should always, always keep learning.

I love talking about hair and style, so I had the best time talking with Lauren about all things hair. But we also touched on the importance of trying new things and not being afraid to go in a different direction.

In this episode, you will also hear me say that I want Lauren to cut my hair – well, she did! She did an amazing cut and color. If you’re in the DC Metro area, go see Lauren at PR Partners in Tysons Corner!

Podcast #157 // Erin Loechner on Chasing Slow

I’ve been a fan of Erin Loechner for years, so when her new book, Chasing Slow, landed on my door step, I counted down the days until our interview.

Erin and I chat about blogging, measuring our success with likes (not good for either of us!), slow blogging, and, of course, a lot about young motherhood. We also chat about Erin’s new book, how it came about, how we can chase slow (instead of chasing gold stars), and what she learned while writing her book.

This episode is brought to you by The Year of Creativity, a new online course put on by the talented writers behind Coffee + Crumbs. The Year of Creativity is a 12-month journey to empower women to pursue creativity alongside motherhood.

Each monthly lesson includes a written reflection, writing prompts, creative exercises, digital gifts, and monthly artist interviews where you’ll hear from women doing exactly what we all want to do: live creatively while raising babies at the same time. While the content is certainly impressive, the best part of the Year of Creativity is the community itself. Here you’ll find a group of women admitting their fears, creating anyways, and cheering for each other while they do it.
This is your year to shine. This is the time to unveil your creative soul and see it not as the thing competing with motherhood, but as the very thing helping to sustain motherhood. Head to coffeeandcrumbs.net/creativity to learn more. Use promo code BAGLEY10 for 10% off the yearly membership.
