learn all about love with life coach lauren zander

If we had three words to describe Lauren Zander it would be insightful, compelling, and brutally honest in the best way (okay, that’s more than three words, but that’s besides the point). Lauren is a life coach, the co-founder and chairwoman of the Handel Group® , author of Maybe It’s You: Cut the Crap, Face Your Fears, Love Your Life, and most recently, the giver of valuable advice and laugh-out-loud moments at our most recent gathering. In fact, we loved her so much (and we heard you did too!), that she is officially launching a monthly column with us here at the void.

On the first Thursday of each month, you can head right here to the-void.com for her no-holds-barred, candid conversation on everything from dating the right way to keeping things fun and spicy in those long-term relationships. Love ain’t easy, but we promise you will love what she has to say.

The column kicks off next week, July 5th, but we couldn’t contain our excitement any longer… and neither could our lovely new guest columnist. So without further ado, here’s Lauren Zander (and be sure to make your way back here next week for the first read!):


“For over twenty years I’ve coached thousands of clients––from CEOs to politicians; entrepreneurs to educators; Grammy, Peabody, and Academy Award-winning artists to stay-at-home moms. And, as chance, luck, fortune, destiny, fate (or whatever you believe in) would have it––one of my favorite topics happens to be one of their biggest issues: LOVE. And who do you think was the original long haired guinea pig for my coaching method?


So, here I am, statistically unpredictably married well past the itch (married 18 years, together 21!), with three kids under the age of fifteen, and my marriage is still wildly fun, deep, connected, and hot. Slightly unheard of in this day and age, right? Beyond the 40% divorce rate and the rise of non-monogamous relationships, take a guess at how many of my clients who are divorced say they knew the fundamental flaw in their marriages from the get go? Answer: eighty percent.

Yes (and yikes). Eighty.

So, how did I find my everlasting gobstopper, David, who happens to be handsome, handy, wise, witty, twinkly, and trustworthy?  Luck? A ton of work?  For the unlucky and lazy out there––don’t worry. You see, there’s actually a method to it. And in my upcoming guest column on the void, I’m going to teach you not only how to avoid heartbreak, but how to find whatever, whomever, and how-many-ever, it is you truly, deeply, and wholeheartedly want. And, if you think you have already found your one, but wanna be sure it’s the forever kind of love, you’ve come to the right place too. Not only will I teach you how to ensure it’s a match, but to keep it lit.

Life is too ridiculously short, and love too insanely fun, to postpone. It’s time to break free from the havoc society subconsciously wreaks and deeply know yourself, understand what you want, and get it too. And, for f*ck’s sake (literally), lose the guilt.

The process I devised, I swear, isn’t so difficult. In fact, it’s so straightforward that when I figured it out for all my love-seekers and sustainers, I found I can actually apply it to all areas of your life, not just love. But this round, we’re coming for love––whether it’s finding it, fixing it, firing it, or just figuring out what you want from it. I’ve come to lovingly call this method “The 3H’s: Head, Heart and Hoo-ha”.

My apologies for those of you out there who may have cringed at Hoo-ha. As you read on, it’ll grow on you.”
