We had the good fortune of connecting with Natalie Love and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Natalie, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I consider risks to be leaps of faith, not worring about whats coming. Knowing losses and failures are a possibility but because the vision of where you want to be is all you see makes those risks worth while.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
The thing that sets me apart is my realness and relatability. Everything thats on everyone’s mind i say. I literally stated what was just a hobby at first at my 9-5 call center job in my cubicle. People would call in with the nastiest rudest attitudes just to file a claim for a cellphone and when we would hang up or i would place them on random unnecessary holds and i would cuss them OUT! While im in my chair fuming all of my co workers would be on the floor laughing and i never saw the joke. One day they asked me to record me going off i did and this is what allowed me to reach a demographic that wasnt really talked about or recognized and if you’ve ever worked in telecommunications alot of people dont understand what you go through on a daily and i was that safe space i was that relief and digression and thats what drew and grew my family (not followers). Was it easy NO having to learn your 9-5 cause if i hate a job i quit 🤷🏿‍♀️ my peace is everything and i won’t give it up for something i dont love and it doesnt love me,but i would be learning a job during my lunch and when i get off work im learning how to edit learning all these social media platforms learning timing and ways to convey my stories comically cook dinner shower go to be was my routine until I would just give up on social media cause things weren’t happening fast enough why is everyone around me soaring and im stagnant so i would quit not realizing i was holding my self back but i never gave up. I jeor trying i kept pushing i would create a schedule and follow it the more i stuck with it and i started to see the support go up i stated see my face and hear my name in rooms i couldn’t imagine. I’ve learned to believe in myself. I decided i was quitting my job to pursue my passion a month and 6 days away from my quitting day the Rona said let me help you not only keep your promise to yourself but ima expedite your trip lol and i was laid off. But i didnt get that gut wrenching feeling of what am i gonna do. I just said if you can get up and hustle to make the rich richer for pennies why not bet on yourself like that and I’ve been full speed ahead ever since. I want the world to know thst YOU ARE ENOUGH sounds cliche but alot of us are hels back from thinking we have to add things to ourselves to be great or even noticed when literally there’s someone in the world loves your beautiful flaws. That can learn from your mistakes or be affected by your confidence.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Im from Vegas so i legitimately hate the strip and thats mostly were people that come here want to go. I prefer to create experinces. Im really a homebody so if they dont like comedy clubs then we at the crib lol

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My Granny Mrs. Nellie Williams. She would always tell me “your a jack of all trades and a master of none. I was ALWAYS all over the place lol. I wanna learn this, im practicing that, i got this but let me try this. I use to get so hurt by it so i told her granny i don’t like when you say that and she said baby you’ll always know how to survive and make a way because you dont fear failing. You weren’t created to be boxed in your spirit been free since your feet hit the ground and thats Gods gift to you. Use it WHERE EVER HE SAYS whether it be making people laugh,doing ya lil nail thing lol building things,praying for a complete stranger wherever and whenever called sprint to it and I’ve been running ever since.
