Overcoming MediocrityEMPOWERED WOMEN
Lauren Bergiel is a Certified Professional Life Coach who is passionate about supporting and guiding people to design the life they really want, achieve their goals, and live in alignment with their values.
With a bachelor’s degree in finance, Lauren worked her way up the corporate ladder. Within five years, she became one of her company’s youngest Assistant Controllers. However, she found that the corporate structure didn’t afford her the flexibility she truly desired. Therefore, in 2009, she took a bold leap and left that company to start her own business.
Amid a countrywide economic crisis, Lauren faced many struggles and quickly adapted, forging a new path as a realtor, and closing over $40 million in real estate sales. She achieved everything she thought she wanted. However, something was still missing.
Then at 33, tragedy struck: Lauren was diagnosed with breast cancer. Facing a battle for her life, she trained her mind to look for opportunities and “mine for the gold” that the journey would provide. She learned to cultivate her power, surrender to the present moment, and intentionally create her identity. This is what was missing from her life and led to the fulfillment she was seeking!
Now healthy and thriving, Lauren continues to apply those lessons and is committed to sharing them with the world. She helps people connect deeply with themselves, challenge limiting beliefs, and create a roadmap that leads them to the life they really want.
With over 1500 hours invested in leadership, communication, and coach training, Lauren is a graduate of the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) and Landmark Worldwide and is an International Coaching Federation credentialed Associate Certified Coach.
