Back 2 Life
Entrepeneurship, extremes and self-esteem
Lauren Burnett is a recovering addict, the founder of fashion brand Luella Rockerfella and mother. Lauren found recovery after a near death experience that left her with life changing injurys. In early recovery as a new Mum she used the unconventional business skills she learned in her addiction to creat her brand- which caught the eye of a millionaire investor in New York…But this isn’t your usual rags to riches, addict gets clean, turns their life around and lives happily ever after story, oh no! We talk about the reality of what happens when you try and fix your insides with outside stuff, the futility of achievement addiction, the humbling experience of starting again and so much more.
In this podcast DJ and broadcaster Milly Chowles talks with artists, musicians and creators about recovery from mental health challenges, addiction and trauma and the role of creativity in their healing. We cover some pretty heavy stuff but there is also plenty of humour, lightness and hope from inspirational people who’ve overcome so much and gone on to live meaningful lives fired up by a sense of purpose and passion.
Trigger warning: Drug use and suicide.
