About the Author
Here's why Lauren is the right person to help you achieve the financial freedom you deserve. Not so long ago, her husband, Mark, and her were living the American Dream. On the surface we had it all. Custom home, luxury cars, beautiful babies, and all the bells and whistles that credit cards, bank loans, and money could buy. Underneath, though, was a different story. I talk all about this in my book The Recovering Spender.
They were so consumed with keeping up appearances that before they knew it they had a mortgage underwater, a car towed away, were $40K in debt, running a deficit every month and finding it hard to buy diapers and groceries without using credit cards.
In the end, it was the connection between money and heart that really brought it all together for them. They had only ever learned about budgets and numbers and coupons in a very dry, clinical (boring) way. But when Mark and Lauren made the heart connection by bringing values and vision into the mix, that's when the breakthrough happened. They committed to focusing on living a happier, simpler life and getting back to the things that matter most
A few years later and now Lauren has graduated from teaching local couponing seminars to making regular appearances on our local ABC morning TV show as well as guest spots on The TODAY SHOW, The TD Jakes Show, ABC's Nightline, Good Morning America, Fox & Friends, WNBC New York City and the Marlo Thomas Show. She continues to teach others how to live a debt free life on her blog LaurenGreutman.com
