Hey, Founder. Nice to meet you!
I’m Lauren. “Camille” happens to be my middle name.
I’m the founder of Camille Outside The Box – a strategy blog that focuses on startup and business strategy through actionable guidance and advice. I feature business content, technology tips, mindset advice, and startup spotlights to highlight startups and small businesses gaining traction.
Overall, I help others get their ideas and business outside of the box and into the world through creative thinking and strategic solutions.
As for me, I”m a proud Oregonian – and recent graduate of Ohio University. I graduated cum laude in May 2019 with a Bachelor’s degree in Food Science & Nutrition. However, after working with businesses and startups for 3 years, and connecting with small businesses seeking help through social media, I knew in my heart that a future in nutrition wasn’t my path.
I’ve been doing remote contract work for 2+ years as a lead integration project manager with a federal network security consulting company outside of Washington D.C. In that time, I have been heavily involved throughout every process in the startup journey from software quality assurance testing and design production, to email lists, blog management, website copy creation, SEO tactics, referral programs, social media management, and more. You name it, and it was a task I worked through.
Over the last year, I’ve both actively connected and received questions and messages from local and out-of-state businesses and entrepreneurs seeking help or advice on their ventures. In the last 6 months alone, I’ve been featured on three podcasts for my business development journey and coaching focus – as well as on Aware Now, Growth Hackers, Databox, and Medium.
My passion is finding the business aspects in the every day and helping others get their ideas outside of their comfort zone & outside the box.
That’s where my coaching and blog comes into play. I help others develop their ventures and ideas by sharing the business tips that I learned from big-name coaches, through massive hours I invested in research, partnerships, and testing in the startup realm.
Besides the serious business & startup work, I love nothing better than iced caramel coffee, kayaking, cooking Thai food, ax throwing, and traveling the world (My favorite spots are Thailand, Hungary and Austria.), I also love connecting with fellow self-starters and startup founders online (is that you?).
Let’s continue the conversation, Founder.
