There have been so many highlights over the past 2 years, so many reasons to celebrate.

Awesome - I love the honesty of your post - that inspires me that what I'm doing is going to get somewhere.

It's hard work updating all the different platforms but it's exciting when you start to see engagement growing. Of course I'll be more excited when I see conversions but that's a different battle.

Best wishes for your ROI's continued growth.

You've been busy. You websites look terrific. I'm not a mom but I'm sure they are helping a lot. Congratulations! I'm just shy of one year and I've got a WA Bootcamp site. My goal for this year is to do the certification training and create a niche website...natural healing solutions. It's a process but I live it too!

Very cool niche with the Mompreneur site Lauren! I like the the way you took the broader idea of helping entrepreneurs and narrowed it down to a specific group of people with specific interests/needs.

It always surprises me how creative people can be and how something old industries can always be reinvented by clever people.

OH LAUREN! I am so happy for you! You deserve this so much. I know you will meet each one of your goals. I am in awe of all you accomplished. WOW WOW WOW!
Ok we are making a date to meet somewhere in the world ok?
Because I am right there with your goals. And you have been my role model. I am so very grateful. I love you! And I cannot imagine how off the charts you will be by 2020 even! I am happy and blessed to be in your orbit! Wanna do a podcast together?

Aw, Thanks, Sweet Ariel. When I look at how much you have accomplished in 5 months, I realise just how slowly I took this journey. I am comfortable with my pace though as raising my little was my priority. Ages and stages. We are all doing this our own way, in our own style. That's what makes this community so great.
I am just as happy and blessed to have met you! Yes! Lets work out this podcasting puzzle together. :)

Wow congrats and those are some brill goals right there. Look forward to hearing how this year goes for you. I have been at WA a bit over a couple of years- I think one of my proudest moments was being able to pay for a holiday with some of my earnings. My husband has been the main breadwinner, so it’s nice to pay for luxuries like that. X

Oh yeah, I hear you Nat. I am just starting to pay for things again now as well and its such a great feeling. My hubby has been amazingly patient.

Always love reading things like this Lauren! I'm pretty far in my WA journey(I've been here a while) and my proudest accomplishment... Probably being married almost 10 years and being able to inspire her as much as I inspire my website visitors and fans.

Congratulations Lauren on your achievements.

Being a mom entrepreneur is no easy task,
it takes real hard work, I appreciate you for that.

I wish you all success on your 2018 goals.

I am a member here since March 2013.
But I only became premium this month in 2018.

I have completed course 1 in OEC.
Now doing course 2.
My goal is to make first $1000 per month from my niche
site within the next 100 days.

I know it is unrealistic but I am shooting for it
anyways :)
