Ep 142: Permission To Be Flawsome with Laura Belgray
In This Episode
I love talking to Laura Belgray.
She’s naturally hilarious in conversation, just like in her writing, but she’s also an innovative marketer who cleans up with every promotion because she is SINCERE and rightly TRUSTED by her audience.
How’s she do it?
By being what she calls “Flawsome,” giving herself permission to expose, celebrate, and laugh about her flaws.
We dove deep on this and a few other topics, like how Laura lights up Instagram in a way that actually grows her business (not just entertains).
