313: How to Map Out Your Goals in the New Year with Lauren Berger

Lauren Berger, founder and CEO of Intern Queen, author of three best selling books, speaker, career and internship expert, and total rule re-writer joins me on the show! Today we are talking all about getting it together! We might be asking ourselves, especially in the New Year, questions like, “How do I reach my big goals? How do I pivot?” Well, that’s just what Lauren and I are going to talk about today. No matter where you are in your life or business, this conversation is absolutely going to help you out!


Question Highlights:

  • What are you up to right now?
  • Where do we even begin?
  • How do you match your current schedule to your dream schedule?
  • How do we break a habit in order to stick to a new habit?
  • What have been some of you difficult “no’s”?
  • What do you do to move forward on your goals?


Lauren Berger founded Intern Queen Inc. in 2009 after recognizing the need for a more personalized way for young people to connect with the internships and career opportunities of their dreams. Today, she runs both internqueen.com and the big-sister site for the brand, careerqueen.com. She also founded and oversees the IQ Campus Marketing Agency which helps connect brands with the ambitious network of young people using her platforms.

Berger is a champion for young ambitious people fighting their way to the top. Years ago, she was one of them. Today, she’s their hero.

Her first book, All Work, No Pay: Finding an Internship, Building Your Resume, Making Connections, and Gaining Job Experience, is a national bestseller and required reading at several colleges and universities. Her second book, Welcome To The Real World, came out last year. In the new book, Lauren rewrites the rules for millennials in the workplace, demonstrating how to succeed in their first, second, and third jobs after graduation. Recently Berger has been featured on The Today Show, Fox & Friends, the Marie Osmond Show, The New York Times, Seventeen Magazine, and more.

Berger’s newest venture is her Youtube Channel, offering weekly advice on internships, jobs, leadership, and entrepreneurship. She releases new advice videos every Wednesday with bonus content released twice a month.

Berger is arguably the nation’s most in-demand career and internship expert and speaks to thousands of high school students, college students, and recent grads every year, motivating and inspiring them. Every year, Berger speaks at over 50 conferences, colleges, high schools, and leadership events.
