Lauren says, "I've been married since 2005, and just gave birth to my first son, Dashiel Rowan, on November 10th, then turned 29 myself on the 19th of Nov. I am a photographer for a "living," (Lauren Whitney Photography) and do many other crafts, including making Amigurumi dolls (Crochet, Ole'), and painting."
I asked Lauren what challenges she faces as a (multiple!) small business owner. She said, "Getting customers, letting everyone know about your small business, and evidently just bringing in fans. It's easy to share your page with your friends, it's hard to make your friends share your page with their friends... you know?"
