Every Body Holds A Story Podcast

May 26, 2021

Today we are speaking with Entrepreneur, 3x Small Business Owner, Marketing & Communications Strategist, Content Creator & Podcast Host, Natalie James. Natalie is a wife, mom of three, entrepreneur, speaker, writer, and podcast host with a passion for empowering women to help them find joy and purpose in all areas of life and business.

For 20+ years, Natalie gained valuable experience throughout a fascinating career in politics and not-for-profit. Throughout this time, she felt most inspired by female entrepreneurs' stories, for their sense of adventure and willingness to take risks. 

Feeling a strong desire to make a change, Natalie set out to take a detour and left her career to carve her own path. This journey hasn't been easy, but Natalie is no stranger to adversity. Losing her father at the age of thirteen in a tragic accident, in addition to her own personal struggle with a physical deformity, Natalie has taken her pain and turned it into a passion for helping others. After spending most of her life uncomfortable in her own skin, she decided to accept who she was and help other women and girls feel the same confidence by harnessing their story and channeling their most genuine purpose. 

Natalie's passionate story of perseverance and resilience has been featured in numerous podcasts, publications such as HELLO Canada!, Forbes, The Toronto Sun, NL Women's Magazine and soon through her own podcast and co-authored book.

In this episode, we discuss:

1) The more time we spend hiding our shame from the world, the more we are feeding it and when we feed it we keep ourselves stuck from the people, opportunities and experiences that are available for us.

2) Our stories can shape and mold us into resilient humans who can in turn share those lessons to impact others. It is incredibly empowering to turn our pain into our purpose.

3) Learning to release control, especially when life feels incredibly out of control, is so powerful. This is how we can use our energy to create impactful change in our life. This is how we step into the space to impact and support others.
