For over 15 years Lauren Mitrick Wood has been absolutely crushing it in the Real Estate game. Lauren specializes in residential sales and works with a myriad of clients including first-time buyers, sellers, renters and investors, in the greater Chicago area. She is also the founder of the lifestyle real estate brand Olive Well as well as a Renegade Brand Bootcamp alumni.

Lauren’s Why Not Now? moment started when Amy Jo asked Lauren if she could highlight Lauren’s Instagram at a speaking event. This moment led to the two becoming fast friends. Her time in the Renegade Brand Bootcamp helped lay the ground work for Olive Well.

Lauren shares how simply showing up on social media, saying consistent, being herself and humanizing her brand has led to huge sales. She talks about using social media to stay in front of customers, especially during the pandemic, providing education and building a strong community.

Lauren also discusses the importance of self care, both mentally and physically and not feeling guilty for taking time to focus on yourself.
