Updated: May 21
Natalie MacNeil is an Emmy award-winning media entrepreneur. She is listed on Leader 100 as a transformer of our generation. Natalie has been featured in one of the 27 women changing the world, Elle, Glamour, People of Time, and Forbes Entrepreneurs. She is extremely devoted to expanding human potential and has served over a million people. Her business, She Takes on the World has the same title as her book.
Natalie was that kid who had a lemon stand and a customized stationeries business during her teens - which she considers the foundation for her entrepreneurial spirit. She was taught to play with business during her college days and she focused on media and virtual reality. A decade ago, in Virtual Reality, she and her business partner worked on one of the first 360-degree interactive media projects that were being developed in the world which earned her recognition for the Emmy award.
Here are the key points in our discussion with Natalie:
2 principles:1) Those who know the outcome can afford to wait without anxiety and 2) Hold the vision and let go of the attachment.
On being an entrepreneur: Others just have it in them but there are others who didn’t feel it as a child but had a drive and a vision.
Why you should shift away from the numbers and just make things realigned.
“Live as if everything is rigged in your favor.”
The shift from 6 to 7-figure: Transformational Embodiment. Embody it NOW.
Hire for what the company will be not for what it was.
Methodology to reach a lot of people: personal connection → aligned community.
The importance of making people feel that they are valued and seen.
To build a sustainable 7-figure business - investment and give time in developing people.
Do: Choose the people you surround yourself with.
Don’ts: Burn yourself out. Grow in a way that feels good for you. Action, not activity. Don’t do it all on your own.
Contemplate on this: What will a 7 figure business make you feel? Who will it allow you to be? How can you embody the essence of that now?
