In these postmodern times, there’s always a cure for what ails you. Unless you have no f–ing clue what’s getting you down.
For that, there’s Lauren Russo.
The virtual life coach bills herself as a source for “stuck professionals, blocked creatives, and rebels yet to find their cause.” Her methods — a mix of mind-body check-ins, elements of positive psychology, and insights peppered with brilliant metaphors and (delightfully) colorful language — would inspire anyone out of a rut.
Hour-long Skype sessions are devoted to the existential topics of your choosing: Grad school or no? Freelance or corporate ladder climb? Or, say, how to transition your underground supper club/knitting circle into full-time happiness.
Russo spends her free time traveling the world, recreating iconic movie scenes on Instagram, and being really (really) pretty.
But she’d much rather talk about you.
Available at laurendrusso.com, $75 per hour or six sessions for $400.
