In today's episode Natalie talks about her story on how she got to where she is today. Natalie started making her YouTube videos in high school, before being an "influencer" was a real job. That word was not yet in the dictionary yet. She then went off to college to pursue a degree in Industrial Engineering. All while still growing her personal brand and continuing to make YouTube videos. After college, she started her own online store- shopbarbu.com and also, got a regular job post-college to work for one of the largest consulting companies.
