Take your creative idea, dream, or product and turn it into a wildly profitable and authentic online business?
If you answered "yes" to any of these, the good news is...
My name is Lauren Lapointe, and I'm a Creativity Coach with a business background who loves working with dedicated, passionate creatives who are ready to take that next leap with their creativity and manifest their creative dreams into a wildly successful online business.
As a touring singer/songwriter, I've released three CDs that have received international radioplay. I'm also a writer, a yoga and meditation teacher, and run The Intentional Creative, a business specializing in offering coaching and online programs for over 12,000 creative students and clients worldwide who are working towards building a more intentional life.
My mission is to empower clients and give them the tools, skills, confidence, and support to make their creative dreams a reality and live the life they've always wanted.
However, I didn't always know that I was creative. In fact, I went to college and received a business degree, worked for several years in a 9 to 5 office job, yet always felt like it wasn't the right fit for me.
One Monday morning, I had the sudden realization that life was simply too short to be spending my days doing something that I didn't love. I gave my notice that day and have never looked back.
To the surprise of everyone around me, I decided to pursue my passion for music, even though I didn't have any experience or background in it.
Within a year, I was supporting myself through my music and, even more importantly, learning and challenging myself daily. With each CD that I released and every show that I performed, I was discovering how to apply all of the same principles that I had learned from my business background to my music.
The result? I was living my dream of playing music and living a creative life that felt meaningful every day.
One of the most important things I learned is that, besides a lot of hard work, you need to make a deep commitment to yourself and your craft, and you need the perspective to treat your creative work as a business if you want it to thrive.
Over the years, I have continuously invested in teachers, mentors, trainings, and coaches to get me to where I am today. No one, no matter how determined, can do it on their own.
As a Creativity Coach, I understand the struggle of wanting to create your own successful business but not having any idea where to start.
I understand how easy it is to get overwhelmed with all of the information out there and not know what to focus on.
I understand how challenging it can feel to sell and market your own creative work and not feel like you're selling out.
I know how challenging it can be to want to share creative work with the world and not have any idea how to go about doing that.
I've learned that committing to a creative life means experiencing more joy, fulfillment, and rewards than I ever imagined and I'm here to help you create the same life for yourself.

I assure you that you CAN learn all of it and I'm committed to making sure that you do (in a fun and creative way, too!)
Lauren is the person who inspired me to be a creativity coach. I was starting the process of recording my first album, Lavender Sound, when I kept facing fears that had piled up during a five-year span of failed efforts to do this project. It was through Lauren's consistent approach that I realized how easy the work could actually be! She broke it down step by step, held me accountable, and reassured me through the tough moments. It was witnessing her loving support that inspired me to coach artists as well.
What are you waiting for?
This in-depth program is only for those who are ready to make a commitment to their creative business and themselves. Isn't it time to make your dreams a reality?
I understand the challenges and steps needed for you to realize your creative business:
Lauren is a wonderful and caring person to work with and helped me to expand my creativity in ways I had not imagined. With her help I now am able to sort through all of my creative efforts to focus on the most important priorities, set goals and identify intermediate doable steps to achieve those goals, while maintaining flexibility to change mid-stream as appropriate. I highly recommend Lauren Lapointe as a Creativity Coach."
