In this exciting episode of the Holistic Wealth podcast with Keisha Blair, our very special guest is Laura Belgray, award-winning founder of Talking Shrimp and Co-Creator of The Copy Cure with Marie Forleo. In this episode of the Holistic Wealth podcast, we discuss how Laura Belgray earned her first million at age 50 plus her new book Tough Titties: On Living Your Best Life When You’re the F-Ing Worst (now available for preorder).
She’s written TV spots for clients like NBC, Fandango, and Bravo, and now helps entrepreneurs and creatives get paid to be 100% themselves. Laura mentioned on the Holistic Wealth podcast that this pivotal conversation that she also outlined in her book, made her think twice about her “fit” in the corporate world:
“All I do in my career is move up and up and up. It’s like every time I walk into the office, I get promoted.” “We were at dinner with our friend’s new girlfriend, a dewy-faced, 29-year-old Conde Nast worker.
Shaking her head “no” to the server’s offer of bread, she added, “I’ll probably be a publisher in the next couple of years.
I remember thinking (as I smeared butter on a second sourdough roll, thank you), I’m ten years older than this young thing and have never in my life moved “up and up and up.” I’m so behind!” That was more than a decade ago. For years, my “feeling behind” only got worse”.
As Laura discussed on the podcast “It’s easy to feel behind when you scroll Instagram and see young influencers raking in billions from lip gloss or overhear 20-something tech kids in line at Starbucks, talking about their Tesla collections and early retirements”.
