by | Jan 5, 2021

Natalie Siston is an inspirational speaker, leadership coach, and author of Let Her Out, a book that introduces the story of her life, journey, and the moments that inspired her to become a coach. Natalie’s unique style of coaching stems from her experience growing up in a town of 600 people, where everyone knew each other by name and helped each other in life. When she’s not coaching, she also teaches and mentors at The Ohio State University, her two-time alma mater.

Natalie joins us to discuss her coaching experience and what sets her apart from other coaches in the industry.

She explains what readers can expect from her book and its contents. Natalie also shares advice for those who want to test the deep waters of entrepreneurship in 2021.
