Each of us is living in our own timeline. 

The pressure to follow the same path and timeline as everyone else is an illusion.

Just take a breath and say this aloud: “Tough titties!”

In this episode, award-winning copywriter and Talking Shrimp founder Laura Belgray shares her challenging experiences growing up, the stress of fitting in among cliques, finding her soulmate (unexpectedly!), and why the world needs more of your stories.

Tune in to this episode: Tough Titties with Laura Belgray

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️ People grow and change. In any environment, everyone we’ve met can transform and have different behaviors and interests as life goes on. Someone who may have been harsh to us back then can do better in the present.

✔️ Tough Titties is a rejection to conform to societal timelines. There’s nothing wrong with being a late-bloomer. What we want comes to us in its own time.

✔️ Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. When looking for your special someone, date multiple people at the same time. Have distractions so that this person you like doesn’t become your sole focus. This allows things to ripen in their own time.

✔️ Practice energetic agility. It can be tricky to shift your energy from what you’re hyper-focused on to a loved one that needs your attention. Look for ways you can make the transition more smooth. It can be a few deep breaths or verbally letting them know how you feel.

✔️  You have so many stories in you! Stories are great tools for selling or commanding a room. There’s no such thing as a boring life. Let the world know your truth!

✔️ Choosing the right relationship is a service. You want to be in one that welcomes your authentic self and encourages your partner to be real, too. When people are comfortable in their own skin, they pass this energy on to others, creating a positive ripple effect.

Laura Belgray is founder of Talking Shrimp, co-creator of The Copy Cure, and author of Tough Titties: On Living Your Best Life When You're the F'ing Worst. An award-winning copywriting expert, she helps entrepreneurs find the perfect words to express and sell what they do in a way that gets them paid to be themselves. Through her work with hundreds of clients (including online biggies like Marie Forleo and Amy Porterfield) she’s seen firsthand that putting “you” into your copy and all through your business is pure magic for getting people to love you up, share your ideas, and happily click your Buy button.

In addition to online types, Laura’s list of clients and credits include NBC, Bravo, HBO, TBS, Fandango, and many, many more. So if you watch TV -- and don’t skip the commercials -- you've probably seen her words on air.

Tough Titties, her first book, came out via Hachette in June, 2023.
