Meet your instructor, Lauren Kay

I started freelancing web design and development in 2008. Since then, I scaled my efforts and grew my agency, Brave Factor, to fourteen people.

Managing clients, delivering content on time, and finishing projects by the deadline were always challenging for me. Then, we started creating processes, establishing standards, and over-exceeding on communication.
