About the author:
Hi, I’m Natasha! I’ve lived on four continents, written for publications in 80+ countries, and been a contributor to The New York Times, TIME, CNN, BBC, Psychology Today, ABC News, Marie Claire, Vogue, Ms., and more.
I’ve won awards for my journalism (Development Journalist of the Year) and have been a contributor to bestselling books (The Lonely Planet Travel Anthology: True Stories From The World’s Best Writers.)
It is not a coincidence that so many of my students go on to get $1-a-word assignments, six-figure careers, and location-independent lifestyles.
It is because I know exactly how creative and ambitious people think, what they want out of their careers, and where they stumble.
I don’t teach you just what I know. I show you what I did, and then I help you how to overcome your own blocks to achieve the same results.
