Born and raised in Medford, Massachusetts, Lauren Bateman works as a full-time musician and YouTuber. Lauren is the founder and CEO of Full-Time Tubers, a website that instructs business owners on how to use YouTube to expand and develop their operations. Full Time-Tubers assists in imparting knowledge on the specifics of what YouTube prefers and disfavors, as well as some of the key points to concentrate on when starting.

When asked about what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur, Lauren stated, “To become a successful entrepreneur, I think it takes consistency, persistence, and a boatload of patience. Building a business is like getting in shape. You can go to the gym and put in the most killer workout. Sweat your butt off. Give it your all. Then, you go home and look in the mirror and see zero results for all the effort you put in. And you start doubting the process. The next day, you go back and do the same thing. Again, you come home with nothing. Most people at this stage will say, this is too much work, and it’s not working anyway. I give up. But the successful entrepreneur knows that if they just keep putting in the time, it will pay off.”

“A year later, they look in the mirror, and they see a totally different person. It’s the same with business. It’s wearing all hats. doing all jobs. Going to bed exhausted and losing sleep over stress. It feels like shoveling crap against the tide, and you’re wondering when it’s going to give. But then you get a boost. ‘Out of nowhere’ something hits or clicks. You realize that all the work you put in consistently over time has brought you to this moment. You thank yourself for not giving up when things got hard or for not getting a participation trophy for all the work you were doing.”
