Play • 45 min

Hey Everyone,

In today's episode we have the pleasure of being joined by a lady who has quite literally revolutionized the fitness industry. CEO and founder of her company FORTË, Lauren Foundos is the epitome of what it is to be an entrepreneur. Lauren’s journey from being a two-time all-American field hockey player, to spending a decade working on Wall Street, to creating a global tech business with no tech knowledge, is a phenomenal story. Lauren is humble, down to earth and straight to the point when it comes to business, her thoughts and insights are inspirational to say the least.

In this episode, we talk about,

  • Lauren shares with us her incredible journey from working on Wall Street for 10 years to deciding to create a tech business with no tech knowledge.
  • We have a conversation about the importance of exercise on mental health and how FORTË has changed the lives of countless individuals by offering an alternative to exercising in a physical class environment.
  • Lauren shares her experiences of being a female CEO and the challenges she faced with her concept, which back in 2015 many believed to be a ridiculous idea.
  • Lauren shares her experience and opinions on the importance of having a support network around yourself. People you can not only trust, but that are willing to tell you the truth.
  • We explore the idea that confidence is actually a result of taking action, rather than something that you necessarily are, or constantly have.
  • That if you’re not fortunate enough to have a supportive family, there is always the option to create and grow a friend family, that not only can support you but you can support.
  • We discuss that nothing is VERY easy at first, and that it’s going to be messy. Lauren shares her thoughts about needing to be patient with yourself, and that nobody has it perfectly figured out.
  • How Lauren believes that everyone has a superpower, and that hers is her ability to relate to people.
  • As move me towards the end of the episode Lauren recaps her belief that knowing you’re always going to be OK, and it’s never the end of the world is a MUST in order to have deep inner confidence.

Lauren’s passion and drive appears to be almost effortless and has played an obvious role in her success. Couple this with her tenacious mindset to succeed and it’s no surprise that FORTË is now a global leader in the streaming of fitness classes across the globe. What’s beautiful about today’s episode is how grateful and honest Lauren is about the support she has had along the way, and that without that support, she really wouldn’t be where she is now. Honest, direct, funny, hard-working and someone who I can call a beautiful friend, enjoy today’s episode with Lauren Foundos.
