  • Has been creating personal finance-related content for more than 10 years based on personal experience.

Lauren Bowling has been writing personal finance and real estate-related content for more than a decade now. All her articles and blog posts are very much reflective of her personal experiences, as Lauren has not studied finance or real estate at all. She has been studying Vocal Performance at Mercer University and received a Bachelor of Arts in Theater at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. After graduation, Lauren Bowling tried to start her acting career with great debt because of her shopping addiction. She ended up as a receptionist for a year. After that, she made an effort and repaid the debt in 14 months and started working on her Financial Best Life blog to share the experience with other people.

This was the beginning of her career as a personal finance writer and advisor. Lauren Bowling has had more financial ups and downs after that, and all of them ended up on the blog, which helped with growing a huge audience and even receiving awards. Lauren’s connection to the real estate industry started in 2013 when she bought her first house to turn it into an investment. This led to another debt after renovating the house, but Lauren Bowling turned this into a challenge that went viral and boosted her career even more. She managed to repay the 8-thousand-dollar debt in just three months and wrote an article about it, which became extremely popular.

For most of her career, Lauren Bowling has been working as a writer and content creator. After selling her first house in 2018 for 150 thousand dollars in profit, she focused more on the real estate sphere. In 2023, Lauren starts working as a Realtor Sales Associate at Ansley Real Estate Christie’s International. Apart from that, her previous positions included:

  • Senior Content Strategist;
  • Editorial Director;
  • Marketing Manager and Content Strategist, etc.

Even now, Lauren Bowling continues gaining new experiences and sharing them with the readers to help them make important financial decisions.
