Hi, my name is Lauren, and I am an English teacher, Ayurveda holistic practitioner, animal lover, and adventuress. I am happy to host whomever fits my needs, and am very particular on my next workawayer(s), since I have a deadline to meet. I am working on building my creative brand and hosting an upcoming women embodiment retreat in September. I am looking for 3-4 experienced women living or traveling in Chiang Mai to help plan and organize it with me. Vegetarian/vegan yogis/meditators welcomed, especially if your lifestyle revolves around holistic practices and betterment.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
I can teach you about the Thai culture as I’ve lived here for 5 years now. I can give you recommendations and/or (if I have time), go with you to local events and activities around town: cooking schools, jazz, elephant sanctuaries, night markets, and off-the-beaten path nature spots I enjoy.
Yoga and meditation are always available. If you're a fitness advocate, hiking/biking is available. There's a yoga studio and gym nearby that I go to on occasion and a lovely space at my house for it. Cooking vegetarian meals together when requested is greatly appreciated, and if you can cook healthy meals, that is a plus! My home is your home!
I am looking for retreat planners/organizers/leaders to help me with an upcoming women yoga retreat I will be hosting in September, here in Chiang Mai. Knowledge in the areas of health and wellness, and women empowerment is highly desirable.
I need 4 creative women, to help me launch a successful business. I can’t do it alone!
I’m looking to form a team right away.
You will live in my beautiful home in the city, rent-free, and I will provide food at my house which you can prepare for yourself, and/or all of us (mainly fruit for breakfast and a vegetarian lunch or dinner at home or at a restaurant) depending on the work schedule. You are free to enjoy 2 days off exploring the city on weekends and evenings. I will need help for 5 days a week, 3-5 hours a day on the weekdays depending on our goals list we create together.
Long-term inquiries only.
I am looking for women to help me over the course of 3 months or more. I can host up to 2 women at a time as space is limited.
If you fit one or more of these types of women stated below, please tell me which one you are, and send me your resume/credentials. If I feel we are a good fit, we can arrange a Skype call for a short interview and take it from there.
You are a woman who gets it done and with precision. You know what needs to be done, who you need to see, and gets it done by any means necessary. You have to deliver like nobody’s business, time and time again without letting tasks fall through the cracks. Whether it’s project management, delivering my startup pitch, or tracking down an investor, you are the “go-to woman” who finishes with excellence.
Executors make great:
Business partnership managers
Sales Lead generators
I need someone on my squad to look out where my organization can go next. Most of the team has to keep their feet on the ground and carry out the day to day functions, but someone has got to be looking where the competition hasn’t even dreamed of going to get, and I will give you the space to do it.
Innovators make great:
Customer experience managers
Chief product officers
The ride or Dier
I need someone who is fast and furious and rides for the team when the going gets tough. I always need someone who can scare the everliving crap out of the opposition that women entrepreneurs face, when we have to advocate for what we need and want. There comes a point when things get a little hectic in startup land. There’s reiteration of products or services, deadlines to meet, and broken morales that need to be put back together when failures come knocking. That’s where you will keep the backbone strong.
Ride or Diers make great:
Accounts receivables woman
Every ship needs a captain. A visionary who knows how to make the whole team move in unison with the long-term goal in mind. You don’t get sidetracked by shiny new objects, or deterred when there’s a hole in the road. You build a bridge and move the entire team over, one by one if you have to, so no woman or priority is left behind. You know what needs to happen and how to motivate your team to take care of the details while you keep sight of the bigger picture.
Masterminds make great:
If you can edit quality videos (pre/post production), direct, create structure in film, have knowledge with storytelling in documentaries, and can fine-tune an already started website, then you will help me immensely!
I need support with shooting and editing videos for a new docu-series I would like to launch about Ayurveda nutrition, holistic passions, interesting things I have learned, and my adventures all around Chiang Mai. I would like to film one topic per week and need help editing through Final Cut software or whatever program you are skilled at. I need help educating the Thai community about natural health, developing healing workshops, maintaining my 2 Meetup groups, and motivating me to actually host a class! Also generating a popular Instagram page through social media marketing and SEO optimization. I would appreciate if you can share some of your knowledge in creating inspiring content. I would like to fill my blog with more content, get ideas to write my memoir, and enhance my website. I am trying to build a business plan, and if you have experience with coaching-business/life/financial, I would love to host you. I am free to brainstorm ideas and create a "to-do" list for each day to stay on track of the projects we want to develop.
Please submit your resume/CV as well as a private message with a website/link that showcases your skills.
I will NOT reply to those whom do not have a Workaway profile, so please do not contact me via Facebook.
Serious, long-term and experienced women inquiries only.
I look forward to sharing this part of the world with you; we will have a lot of fun together, no doubt.:)
I live right outside Chiang Mai's "old city."
There are GRABS (uber) available. If you're comfortable riding a motorbike, I can bring you to a trusted shop to rent one during your stay or you can use one of the 3 bicycles on the property.
I can show you around the city and go up to the mountains if I am free. I would recommend renting a motorbike if you feel comfortable using one.
I enjoy my freedom and space so you must be independent but also be available to help me when I need you. I appreciate determined, efficient, and generous guests that "go out of their way" and take things into their own hands before I ask for help. To see what needs to be done, and just do it.
Take over my kitchen! :)
Please write the dates and duration you wish to stay with me, and I will see if I am available. I will also prefer to Skype/FaceTime before making my decision to host longer-term guests.
I apologize for any late responses; feel free to write me a second time.
Peace, Joy, and Adventures,
