    Ep. 61: Productivity in Quarantine, Working Towards the Future in A Pandemic, and Working Remotely Forever ft. Natalie Barbu

    Ep. 61: Productivity in Quarantine, Working Towards the Future in A Pandemic, and Working Remotely Forever ft. Natalie Barbu

    Today is a solo episode! I am talking about productivity during quarantine and how being productive during a pandemic NEEDS to be talked about. Is it possible to achieve balance? Or is that a myth? Should we be productive or should we use this as time off? I also talk about being a future-driven person during a time where we have no idea how the future will go. And then I introduce Nat Chats- a potential new segment all about the future of the corporate work space. I loved talking about a random topic and would love to add this in. Let me know what you think.

Much love from Australia! 🇦🇺

This has become my new favourite podcast, as well as Natalie becoming my new favourite YouTube to watch! She is so real, down to earth and interviews the most incredible people. I’m a 21 year old entrepreneur, and I always feel so inspired after listening to the podcast episodes, no matter who is on. Natalie honestly makes you feel like you’re just chatting with a friend, and she is so open and honest about everything which just adds to her charm! Much love from the land down under - come visit us!

SO MOTIVATING AND INSPIRING!

I've recently started following Natalie on YouTube and she has quickly become one of my favourite people to watch. This podcast is such an amazing extension of her personality and never fails to inspire me. I love this podcast allows normal people to tell their story and it's amazing to hear the stories of different go-getters and girl-bosses around the world! Everything about Natalie is so authentic and I'm so happy I found this podcast!

Love this podcast

I started listening because I watch Natalie on YouTube, and I’m so glad I did. As a young professional, it’s fabulous getting to hear the real perspectives of others in my phase of life, and it’s like I’m part of the conversation. Loving the content and delivery.
