Natalie Bacon, JD, CFP, Certified Life Coach

Hi Friend,

Welcome to my world.

Let me start by saying I'm so glad you're here.

I love connecting with everyone in this amazing community, and I can't wait to connect with you next. 

I'm a Certified Life Coach, and I'm on a mission to help high achieving women end their own suffering and live extraordinary lives.

It wasn't always this way, though...

  • I used to be a lawyer at a big law firm.
  • I had $206k in student loan debt.
  • Then, I started a personal finance blog.
  • This led me to become a Certified Financial Planner at a wealth management firm.
  • Finally, I came back to my true love of personal development and became a Certified Life Coach.

My student loan debt propelled me into careers I never imagined before.

But it hasn't all been about money. I've truly transformed my life in so many ways.

Over the last few years...

  • I moved from Ohio to Chicago.
  • I met the love of my life (Steve!).
  • I got a puppy (Penny!).
  • I lost 25lbs.
  • I quit drinking alcohol. 
  • I paid off $206k in student loan debt.
  • I built a half a million dollar business.  

These achievements have been over time and certainly have come with a LOT of failures and obstacles.

  • I failed the CFP exam the first time I took it.
  • I went through a horrible break up.
  • I spent years working on a blog without it making any money.
  • I was hustling and working so hard.

Mostly, I share this with you because I want you to know: everything I teach I'm applying to my life. 

I've completely changed my life through life coaching tools.

And it's not just the achievements that have changed.

There's so much about my life that is different in ways that aren't quantifiable...

  • I'm happier.
  • I'm internally balanced.
  • I have more time to enjoy my life.
  • I know how to process negative emotions.
  • I truly believe I can do hard things.
  • I have so much love in my life.
  • I know how to manage my stress and anxiety.

I'm so passionate about the life coaching tools I teach because I know they work. I'm a living example of it. 

So, if this is what you want for your life...

  • More happiness
  • More balance
  • More love
  • More success
  • More money
  • More play
  • Better health
  • Better relationships
  • Better time management
  • Less stress
  • Less anxiety
  • Less suffering

Then you, my friend, are in the right place.

I help thousands of women who want to love their lives as much as they thought they would when they were kids.

It's the women who love a good personal development book and podcast that typically work with me.

If that sounds like you, welcome to your new home. ❤️

I'll be your biggest supporter, your number one fan, and the mentor you've been looking for all along.

I'll show you how to manage your mind, process your emotions, set impossible goals, love yourself deeper than you ever imagined, create healthy relationships, and live a life you're oh, so proud of.

I can help you have it all. Whatever that looks like to you.

There's nothing I'm more passionate about than inspiring women to pursue their dreams and create the exact life they've been too busy to imagine.

If you're ready, I'm ready.

  1. Wow, Natalie! You are such an inspiration! I envy your hustle, passion, and drive. Creating a business from the ground up is no joke, and I’m impressed that you make the decision daily to focus 100% of your energy on the activities that will get you closer to your big dreams. Wow. Just wow!

    Keep up the good work and please keep sharing your progress!

  2. Natalie, you’ve got the best about page on earth. Let me say it again: ON.EARTH!

    Your story is incredible and you’re telling it in the most genuine, honest and inspiring way I can think of.

    Looking forward to reading more of your successes here. I love you a lot MFGG (My Favorite Go-Getter!)

  3. Great Post!!!! VERY inspiring. As I was reading I did a double take because I am also a follower of BROOKE! Love her. I have been in her program for almost a year now. The life coach school, not the coaching program ;). Happy to hear you are able to work with her. Looking forward to reading more of your posts. Thanks

  4. I read your bio on my way to the office, couldn’t put it down! It felt like you were a friend texting me about what’s been going on with her life! You have a way with words! Best of luck! I’m sure to stay tuned!

  5. I am so happy for your growth! I totally know how it feels to be stuck somewhere like that but you stayed so strong about it and pulled yourself out of it. You are such an inspiration!

  6. Wow Natalie, amazing story! I am new to blogging and in the process of setting up my website. I have so much to learn and a lot of hard work ahead. It seems quite daunting, but I have to go after my dream life. Thanks for sharing your story. I will definitely stay tuned to for all of your helpful information and progress. Also, I love the design of your site.

  7. This is so inspiring as I want to start a blog (or two…or three) and turn it into a business. I’m slowly realizing that my 9-5 is fun and I love my team but it’s been constricting with office politics. I’m still in the baby steps of blogging (got WordPress set up but writing articles has been a struggle for me) so I’m definitely interested in your courses.

    And if Chicago is still sticking, I would love to meet you and pick your brain over things! I’m a Chicagoan and I’m still trying to figure out the blogging scene here (I’m too shy to normally reach out to people XD).

    Hope the rest of your summer is as much of a success as the first half of the year!

  8. I am so happy to hear of your growth and resiliency, you have come a long way grasshopper. The Lord will open more doors for you, and bless you with more that can imagined. Keep your head high, don’t look back, only to reaffirm your resolve.

  9. Thanks, this is a great and inspiring read! I’ve recently started a blog and can definitely use all the help, encouragement and community I can get.

  16. I love your post. In some ways, I feel that I can relate to you. I too am stuck in a career that I’m too happy with. In fact, I had a stroke on the job! But I’m not back at work, I just don’t have to guts to quit. I make 6 figures and can’t imagine not having the income. I have to say that I want to be like you when I grow up. I’m so ready to retire from my job.

    1. Thanks, Ivy! I can totally relate to that feeling. I love the idea that there’s another adventure you can start and build something you love and generate income from. Sending you lots of good luck!

  22. I really enjoyed reading your blog. I am a newly admitted attorney with so many student loans just the thought makes me depressed. I have recently started my own business. I was working at a different firm and I hated it. Between the people, the hours and the work it just wasn’t for me. I really love having my own firm however, I am new so this pay cut has been extremely hard. I know that I would never want to go to a big firm, I just was not cut out to be like those people. It is so nice to hear of someone who found a niche and really loves what they do even though it is not practicing law. I am an attorney in New York and New Jersey!

        I am very impressed. You have certainly come a long way. May I ask you, though: do you have any regrets about leaving the legal profession? After all, passing the LSAT, getting through law school, passing the bar, and racking up all that debt…….it must have been excruciating hard. Didn’t you feel sort of obligated to stick with the legal profession, given all those sacrifices you made???? I could use some coaching, because I have a PhD and was a professor, but lost my job and can’t find another tenure-track job, because of the competition. Please reply! Thank you so much!


        1. I love that I went to law school. I love that I’m a lawyer. I also love that I quit practicing law. I took my future into my own hands and created the dream life I wanted for myself. No decision is permanent. Remember: you can always go back. Would love to coach you in Grow You on this! 🙂

  28. This was exciting to read! You’ve given me a boost of motivation to really focus on the stuff that matters. Thanks Natalie 🙂

    Natalie, I have been following your blog for quite some time now, and I find it extremely inspirational and motivational. Though your target audience is women who seek and want more out of life, I, as a male, find your blog to also be helpful for men who seek to quit the 9-5 in pursuit of something more fulfilling. I am going to be launching my blog soon, and I plan to continue following you and all your progress because your lessons are truly jewels. Thanks for all you do to help us better our lives!

  38. Wow! You’re an inspiration.
    I also quit my job this Fall and yeah, it’s tough, but I am finally working on my dream. It’s not paying off yet, but it will. I will work hard and it will pay off. I am confident. Thank you for sharing your story.
