Here are the questions I’m answering… QUESTION #1 (starts at 0:04) “I LOVE that you are doing this series to connect with us, your readers! My question is, as a woman, who has both a career and a family, how do you go about determining when to have grace (flexibility) for others, and when to be firm in saying ‘no’?” QUESTION #2 (starts at 1:12) “Such a great video Natalie!! Loved hearing you speak. My question is, what are your tips for staying motivated when you work at home?” QUESTION #3 (starts at 3:48) “I loved the first installment of this series! Do you have any advice for how to balance your online life with your normal life? I have tried to make the representation of myself and my life on my blog very authentic and consistent with my daily life… but after hearing some people describe blogging as “shallow”… I’d be curious to know how you acknowledge having a blog with “real life” friends.” Have a question?

As an aspiring writer (who would love to work from home!) how did you get started with freelance writing/editing? Did you build your platform first or start from the bottom? It seems like such a difficult career to jump into.” QUESTION #2 (starts at 2:13) “I also work from home as an editor and writer, and my husband works at a busy accounting firm. I would love to know your thoughts on making room for “couple time” despite hectic schedules and work that can sometimes leak into the evening and weekend.” QUESTION #3 (starts at 3:41) “LOVE your style!! Where do you get your fashion inspiration from? What are your 3 top must have clothes items? What do you see yourself wearing a lot this fall/winter?? What inspires you (not just fashion, but anything)?? :) Excited for this series!!” Have a question?

Basically, it would be a regular short video series where I answer questions you ask related ot beauty, style, wellness and life (yep—that’s pretty much anything). Is this something you would be interested in seeing from me? If so, you can start sending questions my way by sending me a tweet, commenting below, or posting the question to the Facebook page. Ask away! What questions would you like me to answer?]]> 8
