Dear Natalie: How do you get comfortable being on camera?

Sweaty palms. Shaking hands. Stuttering. Struggling through awkward silences. Oh god am I gonna throw up!? Nope, that’s not a list of the worst things you can think on a first date. Instead, they’re symptoms I experienced the first time I (very awkwardly) had to stand in front of the camera, and make a video. […]

Dear Natalie: How Do You Deal With Overwhelm?

Emails piling up. Back-to-back calls that barely leave you time for a cup of soup. Clients making “small requests” that require huge effort on your end. Team members missing deadlines, or needing piles of feedback, outlines, and notes. Loved ones asking for your time and attention when you’ve barely had a moment to shower, let […]

This week was one I won’t soon forget. It was a simple hashtag that swept the internet – it could be seen on every social media platform, across a huge span of women and some men: #Metoo. The movement was started by Alyssa Milano, who asked women on Twitter to tweet “Me too” if they’d […]

On Superhuman Surrender

Last week I had the wildest experience of my life at the beach — and I wanted to make sure I shared it with you right away. With our big launch edging ever-closer, I’ve spent the past month or so stuck inside and glued to my laptop, and last week I was officially worn out. […]

On Shame and the Healing Power of Honesty

For this installment of Superhuman September, I want to share something that’s been on my heart: Aiming to be “superhuman” isn’t all about green juice and planning for your goals. It also includes being honest with yourself about what’s not working, what’s frustrating you, and what’s not so great. I’ve shared a lot in recent […]

Superhuman September Part 3: Out With The Old

Filled-up journals. Clothes and shoes I don’t wear anymore. Old files on my laptop. Half-finished ideas that never took shape. Habits that no longer serve me. Those are just a few of the things I’ll be donating, recycling, deleting, and throwing away this month. Why’s that? Because in my mind: September is the new January! […]

Superhuman September Part 2: Your 5×5 Plan

Welcome back! I want to start this blog post by addressing something: I know it might feel like the world is spiraling further and further into turmoil right now. Between storms, political motions here in the U.S. turning the clock backwards on equality and our understanding of our shared humanity, and dark clouds of conflict […]

Secrets of a Superhuman September Part 1

About six years ago, I hit on a concept that still feels totally true for me: September is the new January. I was so excited about it at the time I named a workshop after it, and while I’ve seen it  used a few other places since, it still holds water. … But what does […]

Charlottesville, White Supremacy, and the Action We Must Take

I’m hitting “publish” on this later than I intended to. I have been writing, reading, and rewriting this post over the past week before finally letting go of “getting the words right” and instead letting them flow, unfiltered, from my heart. After the horror that unfolded in Charlottesville, I’m reminded of the lesson I learn over […]

Dear Natalie: Help! I’m Rebelling Against My Own Systems

I’m gonna go ahead and say it: I think creatives make some of the best business owners around. (…And not just because I’m a creative myself, and work with creatives all over the world.) Entrepreneurs who think outside the box have changed the world. Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Elon Musk, and Arianna Huffington are all […]

Dear Future Natalie… Love, 2015 Natalie

Last week, I stumbled across a very special envelope in my desk drawer. It wasn’t just any envelope. It was well worn from travel, and addressed to me — in my own handwriting. For two years, I convinced myself not to tear it open… but standing in my apartment in that moment, I finally felt […]

Dear Natalie: How Has L.A. Changed Your Business?

Oh, my new home in Los Angeles, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Your beaches. Your sunshine. Your total lack of winter. Your beautiful, bustling population of creatives.
