WORK WITH NATALIE
If you are struggling in your business and don’t know what to focus on or if you have a business or new product idea and just want someone else to bounce the idea off of, I would love for you to book a 90 minute strategy session with me.
There is no long term commitment and it is the most affordable way to work with me. I do these with entrepreneurs at all stages and have also been working with podcasters who want to align their podcast to their business or find a way to monetize their podcast.
