My journey began 7 years ago, when I found myself in a corporate internship, as a 21-year-old college student, questioning what I really wanted out of life. I wondered, "Is this it? Is this the best its ever going to get?" I knew that there had to be more out there for me. With no experience and no savings, I took a leap of faith and pursued my first business idea. It was a total failure, and I spent more than $50,000 (that I won in pitch contests, raised on Kickstarter and borrowed using credit cards) on ideas that never made it off the ground.

In April of 2023, Lauren experienced a major heartbreak from a man she loved dearly. While she had to begin her spiritual/healing journey and the re-discovering of herself after the event, Lauren had some professional as well as personal revelations which has motivated her to tell this story in order to help others. She discovered a concept that was first coined in the 1980s by Dr. Dan Kiley called Peter Pan and Wendy’s Syndrome. While these aren’t official terms and diagnoses in the DSM-V, Lauren couldn’t help but find that these pop culture psychology terms are very relevant in today’s society.
