Interview with Lauren Nicole Irons
Dhylles Davis: Who is Lauren Irons?
Lauren Irons: In a nutshell, I am perfectionist. My drive to get things done and do it right the first time can sometimes make me appear unapproachable to some, but I am such a giving person and I try my best to make everyone around me feel comfortable and cared for. I do it for my customers, my friends and of course, my family. I’ve always taken on the role of leader, especially when no one else is willing to do it, and I am the queen of juggling a million things at one time.
Dhylles: When did you realize you were born an accomplishment?
Lauren: I honestly can say I am still learning this about myself. I am my biggest critic, hands down. But sometimes, I have to look back on my life and realize, I’ve come a long way and there’s nothing wrong with having many more miles to go. I wasn’t even supposed to be here: I was born with a slew of health problems. I survived severe sleep apnea at birth(they didn’t even have a name for it when I was born), severe asthma, skin and allergy problems, etc. My childhood consisted of so many doctor’s appointments, pokes, prods, etc. My mom was told that I would be lucky to make it to 24. I am soon to be 31, running 3 businesses, taking care of 3 children 7 and under (one with his own set of special needs), and trying to accomplish so much more. I am a born accomplishment, but I’m an accomplishment in progress.
Dhylles: What is your favorite quote or saying that keeps you motivated?
Lauren: “If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise.” – Robert Fritz
Dhylles: What defines you as a human being?
Lauren: When my final day has reached its end, I want my children and any future generations to know that everything I’ve ever done that was worth anything, was for them. My love is endless and fruitful, my compassion for people and the world we live in is indescribable. When I see someone hurting, I want to make it go away. I want to be the change and that is what defines me as a human being; the inability to be complacent.
Dhylles: What does the word humility mean to you and why?
Lauren: I am such a humble person, and I constantly get called out on it. I feel like everything I do, even when I am worn to the bone, is what needs to be done. Supporting my family, fundraising, volunteering, working more hours than I did working a 9 to 5 in the corporate world: none of that is about me and the need to boast or get a pat on the back. Even doing this interview, I blushed for 15 minutes after the invitation!! I don’t always see what others see, and I think that drives me. As long as I keep striving to see what others see in me, I will always have to work hard.
Dhylles: Thanks so much for such a heartfelt interview Lauren!
