28 quick fire questions with Lauren Bath

Insta’ expert, Bootcamp co-founder, rockstar mum and BIG dreamer Lauren Bath spills the beans on some pretty quirky Q’s.

We sat down with our co-founder, Instagram expert, influencer and entrepreneur Lauren Bath to talk over all the things that matter (and plenty of things that don’t matter at all, but they’re interesting anyway).

 

In this tell-all, quick-fire interview you can find out Lauren’s first job, her favourite word and her earliest memory. You can also take a look at her (BIG) dreams, her biggest fear and what she would have been if she hadn’t chosen the travel life.

 

1. What is your biggest fear?

Dying with regrets. 

 

2. What is the most cringeworthy thing you have ever done?

When we were working with Kait Rich (our mindset coach) last year, I had to chuck a temper tantrum in front of Georgia and Liz. I had an out of body experience and was literally kicking things and screaming.

When my tantrum was finally over Liz just said: “I’m not doing that”. 

 

3. What is your earliest memory?

Being in the back of the car as a baby with a lambswool throw (but sometimes I am not sure if I actually remember it, or if someone just told me about it). 

 

4. What is your favourite piece of clothing?

My Spell skirt. I never wore skirts, I just didn’t feel like they suited me – until one day I saw this beautiful flowy skirt from Spell and I just though “fuck it I can wear a skirt”.  

 

5. If you could board a flight tomorrow where would you go?

Zimbabwe, to see our family and so they could meet Makia. 

 

6. Apart from property, what was the most expensive thing you ever purchased?

I bought a brand new Toyota Hilux. 

 

 

7. Who is your role model?

Georgia is one of my role models, but I take inspiration from a lot of people actually.

8. What was your first ever job?

Working as a kitchen hand washing dishes as a 14 year old.

I actually started working a lot younger than that, according to my mum. I would sell Potpourri bags to my neighbours (who were the exact people I stole the flowers from in the first place). It’s the entrepreneur life for me. 

 

9. What is your favourite food?

Oh that’s so hard! It would have to be a tie between Italian and Thai food. 

 

10. What is your most unappealing habit?

Picking and biting my nails. 

 

11. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a School teacher. 

 

12. What is something that most excites you?

Watching my baby grow up. 

 

13. What is your favourite smell?

I love the smell of the top of Makias head. New baby smell is the best. 

14. Which book changed your life?

There have been so so many. But off the top of my head I would have to say ‘Sapiens‘, by Yuval Noah Harari. It really made me look at the world differently.

 

15. What’s your coffee order?

A long black, single shot – no milk or sugar.

 

16. What is your favourite word?

Delightful. 

 

17. What is your most used word (or phrase)?

Fuck. 

 

 

18. What is your favourite season?

Autumn. 

19. What is your biggest dream?

I want to be a highly successful business woman, a multi-millionaire, with houses in both Australia and Zimbabwe, who empowers other people to achieve their dreams. I also aim to have complete career and time freedom. 

 

20. What is your favourite hobby?

It’s a tie between journaling, cooking, reading and roller skating.

I am actually a really good roller skater. I did it even before it was trendy. 

 

21. What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

To accept radical responsibility for where you are in life, because it reframes everything and really holds you accountable. 

 

22. If you weren’t a photographer/writer what would you be?

I would own a café. My other love is food and I was a chef, so I would go back to that but I would be running the show this time.

 

23. If you could change the world in one way, what would you change?

I would improve the situation for all humans.

I think I could do this by helping people to wake up to another level of consciousness, because I believe that will change the world.  

Animal conservation is super close to my heart, as well, and I don’t think that humans will care about animals until they learn to care about themselves.

 

24. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I would still live in Australia, but I would live between here and Zimbabwe. 

 

 

 

25. Number one holiday destination? 

Antarctica, it was honestly just the most incredible place I have ever been and I cannot wait to go back. 

26. Coffee or wine?

Coffee.

 

27. If you could edit your past, what would you change?

I wouldn’t change a single thing. Everything I have ever done has gotten me to where I am today. 

 

28. What is the one big lesson life has taught you?

Life is hard but anything is possible.
