The articles

The La.Rue Articles are a collection of years worth of advice, thoughts, and musings gathered together to inspire women entrepreneurs to live an intentional life and build intentional businesses

Lauren created the Articles (formally known as the blog) over three years ago. The Articles were originally developed as a space for Lauren to share her experiences and employ her voice to create a narrative that was all her own. Documenting her journey with intentional living and entrepreneurship, her dreams grew and her business expanded.

As time went on, Lauren nurtured her intentional living journey, carrying aspects of it over into every facet of her business, including the blog. She used that opportunity to create an ongoing journal of being a woman in entrepreneurship with the desire to combine intentionality under both umbrellas of life and business. The La.Rue Articles are curated with various topics, including intentional living, lifestyle development, entrepreneurship, and personal stories from Lauren. Our hope in sharing this collection of articles is to empower you with the tools, resources, and community to live an intentional life and run an intentional business.

Since the start of this year, I’ve felt a disconnect between my mind and body connection. There’s not a particular experience or moment I can describe that caused this disconnect. I think it’s actually more simple than that. I think it’s just one of those times where I outgrew these habits, routines, and practices I […]

Mindset Healing

How often do you struggle with intrusive or irritating thoughts? Once a day? A few times a week? Rarely? Often? No matter how often it is, you can address these intrusive thoughts. The frequency of the thoughts isn’t necessarily the issue, it’s the thought itself. By healing our mindset we shift the base belief behind […]

Integrate Wellness

The term wellness is objective. Practicing wellness looks different for everyone. It depends on personal dedication and preference, on schedules and levels of commitment. But everyone has the ability to integrate wellness into their lifestyle. The first step comes with defining what wellness looks like and feels like for you. It’s important to remember that […]

Neural Pathways

How we communicate to ourselves plays an integral role in our mindset and positive thoughts. When we talk to ourselves in a demeaning way, it fine tunes the neural pathways of the beliefs we’re trying to rid ourselves of. And you may be arguing to yourself, “Well it’s sarcasm” or “I’m just being funny.” But […]

What Isn't Meant for You

Romanticize Your Life

explore more

There’s a lot of controversy around romanticizing your life. A few years ago, a small movement began around the topic on social media. People found ways that could romanticize the little things that would make their day-to-day better. But as the movement grew, it become more about materialism and less about shifting your mindset. Last […]

Our lives are at a constant ebb and flow to the experiences and opportunities around us. But as we grow older, it seems our responsibilities as adults consume more and more of our time, and we have less time to “ebb” and “flow.” Our jobs, relationships, family, and friends take up most of our time; […]

Train Your Brain to be Optimistic

explore more

There are three types of people in this world: Optimists, Pessimists, and Realists. Pessimists think that optimists have a blindness to reality. Optimists usually think that pessimists only see the harsher sides of things. And realisits sit somewhere in the middle of negativity and positivity. However, all three of these traits have one thing in […]

Zoom Out

No matter the moment we’re in, be it the best or the worst, we’re always looking onto the next or the last. If you’re in a moment in your life of pure bliss, achievement, and success, we’re seeking ways to keep that moment. We think into the near future of how to keep this moment […]

Life Coach

The Life Coaching industry has made significant strides in popularity over the last few years because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Victim V. Victor

There are several models of thinking that describe how our brains function and why we think the way we do. Over the last two years, I’ve studied several of these models. I wanted to become the best coach possible, but as I was going through my healing journey, I began to wonder why I thought […]

Un-Adopt Your Parents' Mindset

The relationships we have with our parents are different than every other relationship we have.

intentional living

Everything in life requires a balance of some sort; an equal give and take, push and pull, right and left. For us to know that we’re happy, we must experience sadness. We must know what the opposite of one thing is to know we’re experiencing the other. Balance, in many instances, can be relative. What […]

The Secret to Manifesting

What is the secret to manifesting? In short, there is no “secret” to manifesting. But, there are some highly encouraged do’s and don’t’s that can help tip your scales in the direction of successfully manifesting all that you desire.

Worthy of Success

Write | Inspire | Dream We are all inherently worthy of the success we desire. There is no outside force beyond ourselves that can bring us the success we desire.

Behind The Articles

The Articles were the first content platform to launch at La.Rue. Lauren spent most of her time nurturing the blog and building out a wide variety of content. If you’ve followed the Blog (now Articles) for a while, you may have noticed the dramatic shift in content about a year into its inception. Like many, Lauren faced fears in launching an online forum where she would openly, honestly, and candidly share her experiences with the world. It took some time to open up and shift the content to focus on healing, mindset building, and lifestyle changes. And now, the collection of the La.Rue Articles serves as documentation of one person’s growth, and the musing she serves that aid in the growth of the masses. 

Who They Serve

The La.Rue Articles are for women on the journey to heal their mind to live a more intentional life. Lauren built La.Rue on the belief that women can “have it all.” As entrepreneurs, we’re taught that we have to give up our personal lives for our business to succeed. That we have to delicate everything we have for the potential to reach success. But, Lauren believed there was a way to have both. To live an intentional life and build an intentional and successful business. Lauren nurtured her belief in this over time, documenting her journey on intentionality every step of the way. Every single article she’s written has been for the women who do (or want to) believe in the same. The La.Rue Articles are for every women entrepreneur seeking to build an successful business while maintaining an intentional life.
