Alex and Lauren are online content creators and blogging gurus who have mastered the art of successfully running multiple six-figure blogs. Alex and Lauren met via Tinder and immediately realized the extent of their mutual interests. They both had been working full-time 9 to 5 jobs, but neither of them was happy living the monotonous lifestyle that society had expected them to live. They both yearned for the freedom to travel and to live a life on their terms.
Alex was working with several clients, as a personal trainer, and Lauren had been working on a 9 to 5 job with an MBA degree. Despite getting paid fairly for their jobs, both Alex and Lauren wanted something more significant. They wanted financial freedom, and this desire had been turning them into a disappointed, frustrated duo. But they decide to turn things around for them and stepped foot into the blogging world without even knowing it at that time.
Avocadu and Creatandgo are two of their top blogs. Avocadu is a blog solely dedicated to health and fitness, and Createandgo is established with the goal to teach others how to blog.

How Did It Start?
Alex is a certified personal trainer and a nutrition specialist, whereas Lauren is a dedicated vegan and highly passionate about fitness. Both Alex and Lauren were seeking financial freedom and wanted to escape the monotony of their work lives. That’s when they decided to start a blog related to their core interest, i.e. health and wellness.
What is the Motivation Behind the Business?
Alex and Lauren created Avocadu after they started challenging each other’s views on health and fitness and soon realized a massive gap in the existing health and fitness industry. They were baffled by the statistics of the dieting community of the US and the numbers of overweight citizens despite health and fitness being a prominent industry in the country.
Upon doing further research in their niche, they realized that the health and wellness industry needs a lot of work in demystifying the believes around overall health and wellbeing of people. They identified the need for providing people with knowledge of maintaining their weight and fitness with the optimum diet, hence, the start of Avocadu.
They started getting a lot of attention on their blog and eventually realized the need to share their blogging knowledge with the rest of the world as well. When they were starting with their own blogging journey, they wasted a lot of time and effort on money-making courses online ,which they later realized, weren’t up to par. This led them to start createandgo with the aim to provide real, valuable content to people.
