Ep. 45: Mark the Moments (B/c it matters!) w/ Lauren Lowrey

Season #3

We rarely celebrate. WHY IS THAT!?! Celebrations aren't just for birthdays and big promotions. They're for marking the moments that MATTER. For AMPstigator founder/host Lauren Lowrey, the launch of this podcast was a date worth marking. 

This re-launch of Season 3 falls intentionally on AMPstigator's one year anniversary, February 15th. In this solo episode, Lauren details what 2/15 really represents. Part surrender. Part truce. Part celebration. She walks you through the 5 questions to ask yourself to find times in your life that are worth marking.

Lauren also shares how she spent her two-month "creative winter" from Dec '22 to Feb '23 and how the time away from AMPstigator became an unexpected opportunity for advocacy work around maternal heart health.
