Your Go-To Girl (feat. Lauren "Lo" McGrier)
Evann sits down with Lauren “Lo” McGrier to talk about her work as a personal assistant, event manager, and the brains behind Twerk x Tequila. Lauren is really the one you call if you need help getting something done. She’s not afraid to get her hands dirty, and she’ll do what needs to be done to help bring her clients’ visions to life.
Last year, Lauren decided that it was time to start her own brand, so she launched “Connect With Lo,” a platform that allows people to see the work she’s done, as well as book her for her services. In that same year, she introduced her Twerk x Tequila party series to Detroit, and saw instant success. Lauren markets Twerk x Tequila as a “women’s empowerment event,” because she believes that it’s possible for women to come together to network outside of the traditional Happy Hour and panel discussion. After a few sold out runs in Detroit, Lauren began to experiment with markets outside of the city. She held a Twerk x Tequila in New Orleans during Essence Fest, and is taking the party to Chicago at the end of this month.
With the tagline “Get shit done,” Lauren is known across Detroit as being someone you can depend on. Check out the full episode to learn more about how she got her start, what kind of event she would plan if there was no budget involved, and who she’d love to personally assist for a day.
