I am very excited about today's interview! Nathalie is one of the amazing women I have met through b-school, she has a great website with LOADS of helpful posts and videos for computer related stuff, from SEO to the latest helpful software, she rocks my inner geek!
1. Tell us a bit about yourself....
I’m Nathalie Lussier, and I’m a digital strategist, writer, and mentor to women entrepreneurs. I live in Brooklyn, NY with my dog (silent business partner) and husband (not so silent business consultant). I love being an example for women everywhere to see that alternative career paths do exist, and you can create the life and business that makes you happiest.
2. Where do you get your inspiration from?
I feel like my audience and my imagination are enough to keep me going for years and years. I am always thinking up new ideas and strategies that can help people and I can’t imagine not getting those out to the world. I love that I get to lead by example too, and seeing more women starting successful business instead of following the traditional path is also very motivating for me.
3. Tell us about your business...
I run a digital strategy company, where I offer a range of do it yourself training products for entrepreneurs who want to take their businesses higher. I’m putting on my first live event here in New York City, called Off The Charts, where I’m going to be sharing lots of strategies and how-to’s with a group of amazing women entrepreneurs.
4. What led you to start your business....
I have been making web sites since I was 12 years old, and graduated with a degree in
Software Engineering and a job offer from Wall Street. In a gutsy move, I turned down this job to start my own business right out of college. I had held a few internships in Sillicon Valley and on Wall Street, and I felt like this work wasn’t my calling, so I decided to create a business around my passion for health and wellness. That business quickly took off, but soon people were asking me who made my website and how was I running this online business. Listening to what my audience was asking for led me to start Nathalie Lussier Media and that venture quickly turned into a six figure business.
5. What does an average day look like for you?
I wake up, have breakfast and walk my dog in the park. Then I usually get started with correspondence, whether it’s status updates with my team or email. I spend a lot of time writing and creating content, and try to keep all of my phone calls to the afternoon so I can have focused writing time in the mornings. I take a break for lunch, and another one to walk the dog in the afternoon... and most days I’ll do a little more work in the evenings just to make sure everything is running smoothly.
6. What is the one thing about your job that makes your heart sing?
Seeing women kick butt in their businesses. I just love seeing people get results from my work, and knowing how it impacts them and their families, and the legacy that everyone is creating for themselves just amazes me.
7. Share a secret with us that has never been shared online before
I’m pretty open with my secrets online, but I will say that I love reading romance novels in the bubble bath!
