The Why

Natalie’s goal is to live life so that it encompasses ALL of her dimensions. Too many people believe they are defined by one or two parts of themselves, and they concentrate on developing only those areas, while neglecting other important aspects of themselves. But Natalie thinks the universe is big enough for all our facets to shine if we allow them to, and that’s why she’s here – to encourage and support people to expand their lives so they can fit all of themselves resulting in more productive people who lead, manage, and engage better. She’ll always do this through her consulting services offered, coaching, and now, the blog. Since she’s definitely about more than one thing, the blog has no limits. She’ll be chronicling her many different interests and inspirations, among them Politics, Travel, Business, Spirituality, Food, Fitness, Fashion, and Family. You’ll meet her amazing husband Martin and their two precious pups Missy and Layla, and follow as they explore new ways to grow and develop and broaden their lives. And you won’t get a sugar-coated version either; she’ll have courageous conversations about struggles and challenges, mistakes made and lessons learned. If you’re ready to create enough space in your life to fit your whole self, let’s dive in!
