The Food Star with Lauren Lane

lauren lane

Lauren Lane believes that unrelenting passion is the driving force behind success as a social media influencer. As a former Hallmark Art Director, Lauren made a huge pivot in her career to her third act as a professional cook and social media influencer. Despite her lack of experience, Lauren’s homemade dinner boutique prospered due to her diligence and dedication. Now known as the self-made “food star”, her skills range from videography & contracted social media marketing to cooking classes on Kansas City Channel 4–a stark contrast with her previous background in corporate America.

Join us as Lauren shares her experiences with her “year of doing yes”, and how facing things that scare you can catapult your third act to new heights. In the episode, Lauren shares beginner tips on social media influencing and inspires with her self-taught mastery of photography and food styling. She urges all listeners to realize that “you can learn to do anything”.
