Lauren’s Marketing Impact Academy Fund

Hey guys! Thanks for taking the time to read my story!

As some of you may know me and my husband Jeffery Caldwell have been pursuing the path of entrepreneurship now for about 2 years. It’s been a wild ride to say the least, but I am so grateful we have been able to do this and chase after our dreams. We have 3 kiddos who we homeschool full time as well as building our businesses simultaneously. Both are challenging yet truly rewarding, but we fully have faith in God to get us successfully through it all.

Anyways, some of you may or may not know that I had started my road of entrepreneurship with my Etsy stationery shop I opened back in 2016. At that time I realized after 6 years of being a stay at home with my hubby in the military, I had dream in my heart and another identity then just a mom/wife.

From that point I built my shop/business and after a year I got great success, making 4K per month, but worked my butt off and hardly had time to breathe or take a break because I couldn’t keep up with the orders anymore. I became an employee to my shop and was fulfilling orders day and night.

After we decided to shut the shop down (entrepreneur newbie mistake that I regretted) I became so lost. Everything I had worked so hard on and was passionate about was all gone.

Then after a year and a half of hard work on self development and learning more about business, I discovered the solution to the problem my shop had. I learned the missing piece on how to automate what I had worked so hard on back then. I learned that the dream of having my stationery shop was a reality again and found a program and way to set it up the right way so I could make passive income.

Soon after I set up my shop I realized an even bigger dream I had deep down...I wanted to teach and truly help others. I want to teach them about these types of passive income Etsy shops, how to get started, as well as teaching/coaching others on how to design that have no experience but don’t want to spend a fortune on college courses. Being a teacher/coach has been a huge dream of mine, and I knew that this area was what I was passionate and excited about teaching.

So as of recently I was presented an opportunity to learn from two huge mentors of mine. Women I truly look up to in the business world and religiously follow. Chalene Johnson  and Angie Lee . Two HUGE digital marketing and sales ninjas in the online biz space. Two women who have truly changed thousands of lives because they help women make 6 to 7 figures online doing what they love and are passionate about.

So basically I learned that this course only happens once a year and enrollment closes in a week-ish...my heart longs and desires to take my business to the next level and I know in order for me to have people invest in me and business, I need to invest in myself and my skills so that I am even more valuable for others. The only thing that is making this a challenge for me right now is the money...the academy is $2,000 and yes they do have PayPal credit as an option, but I’ll be honest with you, my credit sucks and so I didn’t get approved for it...

So I decided to be brave and get outside my comfort zone and ask for help...something I have a  REALLY hard time doing, but when I read Rachel Hollis’ book yesterday called Girl, Stop Apologizing she had a whole chapter about “Asking For Help” and made me realize I hold myself back when I choose to try to figure everything out on my own. I deplete myself and suffer when I do that because sometimes 2 is better then 1 and sometimes “it takes a village”...

So here I am asking you or anyone you know who would possibly be open to donating to my fund so I can join Marketing Impact Academy . I’m sick of letting money stop me from doing the things I long to do and sometimes it’s worth it to just put yourself out there because if you don’t, people will never know what you’re struggling with ‍♀️

With the $2,000 I will be taking Chalene Johnson’s Marketing Impact Academy course and getting 10 weeks of intimate coaching with Angie Lee herself as well as a FREE ticket to Angie Lees 2 day annual live female entrepreneur event with over 1500+ female entrepreneurs in San Diego in October, it’s called Pays To Be Brave. I’ve been dreaming of going to this event and was planning to save the $500 to $1000 to hopefully attend it. I was blown away when I heard she was giving away free tickets to anyone who joined Marketing Impact Academy. No really, lol my jaw dropped.

So I guess that’s the gist of it...I have a week or less to get enrolled and they are taking 100 women in the 10 weeks of coaching with Angie Lee...so I’m really crossing my fingers I can do this

If you’ve read this far I truly appreciate you for taking the time to read and consider helping me with this dream Definitely understand if you can’t donate, but if you know anyone who would consider helping, a share means SO MUCH to me as well. Anything helps... a share on social media, $1, $5 $20, whatever!

Also if for some reason I don’t have enough by the cut off for enrollment I will personally go through everyone who has donated and give you a refund.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! I will keep everyone updated! Love and am grateful for you all! ♥️✨
