Today’s #MillennialToWatch is Natalie Diver.
From being 13 years old, Natalie has used the internet to create profitable, online businesses. Natalie has solid experience in social media marketing and has leveraged this to create and consult on million dollar brands. Along with a prestigious first­-class degree in management, Natalie left University with 13 National Awards for her work in Business and Enterprise, including Directors Award for Outstanding Personal Achievement. In her Second year of University, Natalie worked alongside James Caan and was appointed as one of the first Ambassadors of the £112 million Government backed start-up loan scheme for entrepreneurs at Buckingham Palace. In addition, after creating and substantially growing Newcastle University’s Entrepreneur Society, Natalie was invited to visit 10 Downing Street to Mastermind with Lord Young on creating policy to encourage more students to be involved in Entrepreneurship. Natalie has also been featured as a finalist on a UK-wide television show featuring Britain’s smartest and most promising start-ups and entrepreneurs. Natalie now spends her time travelling the world whilst running companies Oh My Glow (omgdetox.com), BossBabe (bossbabe.me) and Instagram Academy (instagram-academy.com) remotely. She has volunteered in a remote jungle, lived in 4 continents and used this experience to develop her skills both personally and professional.

 Natalie shares…”Learn from what the leaders in your industry are doing and never be afraid to reach out to them.” 
“I believe that integral to my success in my own businesses has been leveraging social media as a marketing platform. As an early adopter of social media, I have watched trends unfold and really took the time to understand how to monetize these platforms in the most optimal way. In particular, Instagram has been the platform which has allowed my businesses to make the level of sales that they do, without the marketing budget.I believe that to have success on these platforms you have to be completely clear about what your goal is and why you are there. You need to understand what the main pull of each platform is, for example, Instagram is all about amazing images and so if you can’t provide this, you probably won’t do well on it. Once you can showcase your business in the best way possible, it’s time to link up with other leaders in your industry and leverage their networks to help grow your own too. If you’re all about competition and not collaboration, you will really struggle on these platforms and in my opinion, life and business in general.

Learn from what the leaders in your industry are doing and never be afraid to reach out to them.
