Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Lauren Ray, Founder of LZR Films LLC, located in Los Angeles, CA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I am an award-winning documentary filmmaker. I also create content for businesses as well as my own social media channels.

Tell us about yourself

I have been making films since I was about 10 years old. I have always been obsessed with cameras and telling stories, so it is really a dream to get to do that as a career.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Creating and releasing my 1st film and how much people were moved by it was such a beautiful experience.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Being a female filmmaker and navigating a male-dominated industry can sometimes be challenging.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

I would say if you love creating but are worried you're not talented enough, don't let that stop you. We are all learning every day, no matter our age or talent. You have to do what moves you and what inspires you. Life is for living, so get out there and really live!

Where can people find you and your business?
