I have enjoyed getting to know Lauren Nichole Roberts and mentoring her over the years. When I first met Lauren, I realized she was special and had a tremendous amount of potential. She captured Marsha's and my heart on day one. I am 72 years young and have traveled across the world meeting thousands of individuals. Lauren is one of the most amazing individuals I have ever met! She is ambitious, passionate, kind, considerate, intelligent, talented, and very wise.
Lauren's greatest attributes are her compassion toward others and her passion to make a difference in the lives of everyone she comes in contact with. Lauren has traveled with Marsha and I, and we have seen her share her love with children, the elderly, the homeless, and anyone that has a need.
The interesting thing is, when I got to talk to others in her family, they shared the same type of things with me. They told me when she got money for Christmas or her birthday, she would always use it on others. Her grandparents would give her money to go shopping for herself and when Lauren would show them what she bought, there was never anything for herself.
I was touched to hear that Lauren had been such a special person throughout her life. That is unique in this world. Hearing these things gave me a burning desire to see this young woman become everything God created her to be because this world needs someone like Lauren. We have seen her minister in nursing homes and put smiles on the faces of the elderly who felt forgotten. Every Christmas, Lauren visits nursing homes to make sure the residents know they are important and loved. She sits with them for hours just showing them love. It is so special to see her share God's love with them in such a personable way. She was a teacher in a private school I started for disadvantaged youth. When she started working with the students in her class, they were behind for their their age group. By the time she stopped teaching, they were two years ahead of their age group. She poured her heart out for those children, and although she is no longer teaching, they are still closer than ever to Lauren. Her God-given love toward children is one of the reasons she has been ordained as Youth Minister at the church I founded.
When Lauren felt like God directed her to become a full-time network marketer, I knew she would excel because Lauren excels in everything she sets her mind to. Lauren is selfless in her business experience and is leading a number of individuals to unparalleled success. I look forward to seeing her bring thousands around the world to their peak of success, not only in their networking careers but also in their personal lives.
Lauren is very charismatic and leads with wisdom that is uncharacteristic of a 26-year-old. I can't imagine where her life is going to take her, but I know it will take her to the top. I wouldn't be surprised if Lauren became the president of the United States. I have mentored many individuals both spiritually and in the business world. Lauren far exceeds anyone that I have mentored in my 52 years in business and as a minister!
