Nathalie Lussier

Digital Strategist

I’ve been making web sites since I was 12 years old, and when I graduated from college with a degree in Software Engineering, I knew technology was on my side.

What I didn’t know is that the missing piece for me was the "how does this change the world?" piece, which I hadn’t found as a programmer in the internships I took during college in Sillicon Valley and on Wall Street.

In a gutsy move I turned down my first job out of college, which was a Wall Street programming position, to start my first online business all about healthy eating.

I quickly found that people were asking me who made my website and how I was creating this little digital empire.

That's when I opened up Nathalie Lussier Media Inc., my digital strategy firm: http://nathalielussier.com

I realized that while building my first online business I had amassed a ton of marketing know-how on top of my tech expertise, so when I opened the doors to my current business as a digital strategist, everything took off.

I had clients within the first week, and I realized that I couldn't keep up with the demand so I had to raise my rates to keep things manageable.

I knew I was on the right track when I saw the results my clients were getting from our work together, to the tune of six figure launches and brand new six figure businesses.

Of course, none of this business would have been possible without starting my first healthy eating blog and business, which is where I got known online and launching my first digital products.

Today I help people grow their email lists through the free 30 Day List Building Challenge at: http://30daylistbuildingchallenge.com

I couldn't have gotten here without starting out following the passion of my first "world changing" business... and allowing myself to go where my natural talents were, and where people were asking me to take them, too.
