The Corporate Creatives
About This Show
Welcome to The Corporate Creatives! My name is Natalie and I will be your host every Mondays and Thursdays!
Whether you’re tuning in on your commute to work or just settling into your cubicle – I will be right here, week after week, to instill some creative spark on those corporate wheels you’re on!
So here’s the deal – you’re here because something feels lacking in your work life and you have no clue what it is, or maybe you do know what’s lacking, but those corporate cuffs are just too comfortable for you to break free from. I get it because I’ve been there! I went to law school, became an attorney, ended up in Corporate America, was unhappy, but stuck around for a few years because I was bound by physical and mental barriers I created myself – a big mortgage, massive student loan debt, fear, pride, uncertainty if I left… and the list went on. I felt trapped and didn’t have the resources or know-hows to break free.
It was not too long ago that I finally walked away from a soul-crushing, six figure job– all in exchange for freedom – freedom to do more meaningful and creative work that we are all destined for. The launch of the Corporate Creatives was inspired by the many success stories I discovered and the wisdom I gained from countless self help books. This podcast is exactly what I needed during those sad days in my cubicle and my hope is that it will be your catalyst to make a change today!
Whether your goal is to find a job that inspires you to do your best work or to pursue that entrepreneurial venture you’ve been too busy for or too scared to launch, I know there’s a creative soul in you waiting to come out and I will keep at it until we find her!

“I think a lot of people fall into this dangerous trap of coasting along - so they get up and just go through the motions. Then 5 years go past and they’re not where they want to be, and it’s because they sort of drifted there. They kind of not really been intentional about how they started their day or how they actually live their life, and they end up at this place, and they're treading water and they feel stuck and they’re, like, how have I ended up here?” Dani Watson Founder of The Clique Current location: London, England, UK Education: Law Degree Corporate: Corporate Lawyer Creative: Business Mentor & Digital Strategist Welcome back to a brand new episode for Season 2! I'm excited for another season full of INSPIRING FEMALE CREATIVES and book reviews to motivate you to take action - to just go for it! There’s never really a good time to start that side hustle, quit your job, or go for what you love full time. You just have to do it. The stars won't automatically align for you. The traffic lights won't suddenly all turn green. All your ducks won't line up in a row on their own. Conditions will never be perfect. So if where you are now, is not where you want to be – then it’s time to change the trajectory of your path. Most of the time a paved path will rarely ever be laid out to get you to where you aspire to be, you just have to SET SAIL AND KEEP CORRECTING COURSES along the way. Soon you’ll get there. Not today. Not tomorrow. But eventually - because you made the conscious decision today to go down that path. So in this episode, DANI WATSON shares with us the moment she made the decision to change her career path from UNHAPPY CORPORATE LAWYER TO THRIVING ONLINE ENTREPRENEUR, leading the life she dreamt of.

She was working crazy hours and when she wasn’t working, she would party excessively to keep
