I’m Nathalie Lussier – Founder of AmbitionAlly®
(Pronounced Natalie Loo-see-ay)
I’m a digital strategist, and I believe that unique businesses deserve unique strategies to succeed online… and I love coming up with ideas to match your ambition.
I started dreaming in digital at an early age, and designed my first web site at age 12. Before that, I flexed my entrepreneurial muscles by putting together a self-published magazine that I sold to my friends and family.
Following the digital trail…
I put in 10,000-plus hours of programming time while earning my Bachelors Degree in Software Engineering.
When graduation rolled around I had worked as an intern for a start-up in the Silicon Valley, a Wall Street firm, and hopped around Europe while interning as a programmer in London.
I was lucky enough to graduate with a job offer from a Wall Street firm, but my intuition was telling me that the economy was shifting in ways we couldn’t comprehend, and I had always wanted to start my own business, so I turned down that job offer.
My parents and peers thought I was crazy to chuck away such a stable career, especially because the first business I started was all about my passion for healthy eating.
I mastered online marketing…
While growing my first business, being my quirky self, and wearing a witch’s hat in my videos, I built a website that now boasts 750,000 yearly visitors and over 1 million page views.
Soon my readers and clients were asking me how I had grown my healthy eating business so quickly, how I set up my website, and how all of these digital strategies really worked…
Answering their questions led to the creation of this second business, which quickly grew to a six figure consulting company and continues to grow and expand.
Over time I’ve created a set of digital training products to distill my experience in technology and online marketing, so you can reach your goals.
I’m focusing on growing the AmbitionAlly software startup I co-founded with my husband, so I’m not taking on any individual clients. However, you can hire one of our highly skilled AmbitionAlly Certified Partners.
I infuse everything I do with my strengths, values, and quirks:
- Strategy without empathy isn’t worth following
- Competitive results stem from original ideas
- Simplicity sells: if you can’t understand it or explain it, don’t do it
- Fun, creativity, and love in business make it all worthwhile
- There’s no such thing as too many books or too many ideas
- “I make shit happen” is a sweet melody to my ears
- Launching is not a business model, but it can kickstart a business
- Women in business and technology will change the world
- Off the charts business results are possible for you, too
I work with driven, creative, and passionate entrepreneurs and small business owners who are here to make their mark on the world.
I know you’ve got ambition to spare, you’re a leader, and you understand the profit potential and exposure available for your business online.
