21. Natalie Novosel: From Basketball-Athlete to Entrepreneur-Athlete, Find your Voice and Confidence
Jan 31, 2023 Season 2

Natalie Novosel is a former college and professional basketball player.  She was born in Lexington, Kentucky, and played collegiately for the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Some of her best memories include helping Notre Dame to 2 National Championship Games, winning a gold medal with Team USA at the World University Games in Shenzhen, China, being selected 8th in the 2012 WNBA Draft, and five seasons playing professionally in the U.S. and overseas. 

Natalie works at Transamerica & World Financial Group, revolutionizing the financial industry. Natalie applies her basketball lessons to her entrepreneurship journey - the camaraderie and being part of a team, winning culture of never being satisfied, and surrounding herself with like-minded individuals who want more for their lives. What drives Natalie? "The constant self-improvement and quest for being the best version of ourselves, and the opportunity to change our family's legacy and others' lives forever."

We discuss: 

  • Natalie's upbringing and journey to finding her passion - basketball
  • College basketball career at Notre Dame University - why she picked the school, challenges she faced, top highlights of her basketball college career
  • Struggles with finding and owning your voice, creating teamwork, believing in yourself, building confidence, creating authority
  • Leadership by example vs. leadership by example with clear communication - stepping into your power
  • Being drafted for WNBA Washington Mystics and adjusting to the culture, believing you belong and are good enough
  • Playing basketball professionally in Romania and Australia and country and culture fit
  • Natalie's transition from Basketball to Entrepreneurship, creating daily program and routine, and updating our belief system
