Huge congrats to our ticket sweepstakes winner Natalie Fee! We did a quick Q&A with this badass bullicorn, here’s what she has to say:
We’re excited to announce you as our winner this year! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I currently work at Pekin Insurance in Pekin, IL (central Illinois, 3 hours south of Chicago) as an IT Internal Auditor. I make sure processes are working as expected, find ways to remediate risk and control gaps, and write documentation. In my spare time I love writing, reading, photography, videography, graphic design, and playing/singing music.
How did you get involved with the Bullish community?
I found GetBullish when I was at a very low point in my career – underpaid, unappreciated, unhappy. Jen had written an article that was included in The Muse‘s email newsletter. I honestly forget which one, but her advice was refreshing and made so much sense. I pretty much devoured all of the archives, then bought the Design Your 2015 workbook, and then listened to all the webinars. GetBullish has such an important message, but as a young woman who had tried to enter the working world just as the Recession hit hard, it was a lifeline. I can honestly say I am where I am today because of GetBullish.
What are you looking forward to the most at BullCon?
This will be my first ever BullCon! I really wanted to go to Palm Springs last year but I couldn’t afford it. I’m so thrilled to have won a ticket! I love hanging out in the Society and I’m excited to meet people that I’ve been reading/chatting with online.
Before GetBullish, I never considered starting my own business because I’m such an introvert and no one thinks of my personality type as the ‘entreprenuerial’ kind. I still haven’t found my side hustle niche yet, but it’s something I’m actively pursuing to diversify my income streams. (Maybe that is something I can figure out at BullCon!)
Meet Natalie and more ambitious feminists like her at this year’s Bullish Conference in Washington DC on November 2-5.
