Natalie is here to talk about niching down into operations as a freelancer in the online space. Operations is one of the highest paid, hourly, freelance roles and Natalie walks us through the pillars that make up Operations.

Natalie spent 15 years in corporate operations and leadership at a Fortune 150 company and when given the opportunity to leave, she put the knowledge, certifications, and experience to work by creating her own consulting firm as well as a certification.

One of my favorite things about freelancing is that the business you start out with isn’t the business you end with! The opportunities in the online space are limitless and this episode will show you yet another direction you can take your business.
