In our continuing series of mental health in the workplace / entrepreneurship, we meet Natalie Bacon, who pivoted from being a practicing business Attorney, to starting and authoring a blog, to becoming a certified financial planner and finally transitioning to become trained as a full time life coach.

She shares her struggles and trauma from growing up with an alcoholic dad whose life revolved around DWI’s, being in & out of jail, and his financial consequences, and the trauma of having recently lost her dad with whom she rebuilt her relationship.

Often, anxiety, panic and fear of the unknown hold us back when making big decisions, but it is crucial to find self love as the first step to improving our lives and goals. Feeling good when facing obstacles help us to remove the boundaries that we may unwittingly impose on ourselves. Nathalie gives us tremendous tips, techniques and tools to mindset improvement, such as accepting what is, instead of rejecting it, using your brain to bend your current beliefs and finding the upside of the natural human tendency to gravitate to a negative mindset and instead find meaning to our obstacles and accomplish positive change.

Matana shares her own real life scenarios of how goal setting and a life coach can help us achieve our desired outcomes when its hard to take that first step and how to identify and plan in advance, for events that challenge us, in order to help us make decisions in those moments and substitute things that challenge our goals with goal enhancing behaviors. If you find this episode useful, please do share it with someone else.
