SHARE YOUR STORY. FIND YOURSELF. CREATE YOUR WORLD.


I’m Lauren Rains. I’m an adventurer who is also an entrepreneur who is also an artist who is also an activist who is also a writer. For a long time, I didn’t know how to hone all my passions. Then I got out of my head, and started DOING, CREATING, COLLABORATING, & FINISHING WHAT I STARTED.
I welcome you to join me on this journey, as I share my findings, lessons, and resources. I’m all about authentic living and connecting, stretching yourself in order to grow, and living with intention.
