Natalie Eckdahl is the host of the Biz Chix podcast, a business coach and strategist who also leads mastermind groups for women entrepreneurs. She was inspired to start her podcast in 2014 because the business podcasts she was listening to mainly spotlighted men and she wanted to listen from more women entrepreneurs who were balancing a business and a family just like she was.

With nearly 300 episodes under her belt, Natalie has been able to provide a platform to women business owners and leaders whose voices are often underrepresented while also sharing her own knowledge and expertise to other female entrepreneurs who are looking to start and improve upon their own businesses.
