She started making websites when she was 12, but never imagined she’d end up in the digital strategy business. Says Nathalie, “I was blogging online before ‘blogs’ or WordPress were even on the scene. As soon as WordPress was available I loved it and have built all of my sites on it ever since.”
Nathalie Lussier is an award-winning entrepreneur. She graduated with a degree in Software Engineering and a job offer from Wall Street. In a gutsy move, she turned down this job to start her own business right out of college. Now running a highly profitable software and training company, Nathalie helps thousands of people all over the world get techy with it. She’s been featured in Forbes, Inc., Fast Company, Venture Beat, Mashable, Business Insider, Yahoo! Finance, and Under 30 CEO.
Nathalie says she went down the corporate path and turned back, and sometimes felt like going back to square one. But now she knows she’s exactly where she was meant to be.
Nathalie has been blogging for over 14 years, and really ‘gets’ the online marketing landscape. She recently partnered with her husband to launch AmbitionAlly, which creates WordPress tools for driven and design-oriented entrepreneurs. They include the polite PopupAlly plugin for WordPress with exit intent options.
We can’t wait to hear Nathalie’s perspectives on how our career paths can take us in fascinating and unexpected directions, as they spiral ever upward.
