Laura Jane Williams on Purposeful Success, Embracing Your Inner Child, and Healing Burnout

Laura Jane Williams is an author, journalist, scriptwriter, public speaker and accidental influencer.

In this episode, Laura catches us up on all that's happened since she was a guest way back in Season 1 of Real Talk Radio. She shares the story of getting her first book deal, and how in the aftermath of the book's publication she wound up burnt out and diagnosed with anxiety and depression. She shares what she did next to help herself heal, how she's approached her writing and career ever since, what she's working on now, and more.

We talk about money, about the fact that success doesn't happen by accident, plus all of Laura's best tips for creating engaging content on Instagram.

I've known Laura for what feels like forever now, and it was such a pleasure to have her back on the show. I hope you love our conversation as much as I did!
